Jacobi is a goofy, affectionate, all-around SWEETHEART - AND he is incredibly intelligent! He is a typical sato (Puerto Rico stray dog); a resourceful, smart boy, with a big heart and lots of love to give.
Jacobi lived on the streets of Puerto Rico most of his young life, relying on the kindness of humans to give him some scraps of food. His flesh hung from his bones due to malnutrition, and his frail body, which should have tipped the scales at a healthy 65 lbs, weighed only 40 lbs. But his inner beauty and love for humans never wavered.
Even in his most dire moments, Jacobi wagged his tail and tried his best to show his kind and gentle nature to the people he encountered, hoping that they would choose to rescue him. He knew that there were hundreds of other street dogs just like him, and his chances were slim, but even this knowledge didn't crush his spirit.
His perseverance eventually paid off, and this beautiful boy was finally brought to safety by one of our wonderful rescue partners in Puerto Rico. Jacobi has lived in foster homes and boarding facilities over the last few months, and he's now here in NH, ready and excited to find his forever family!
If you can think of a positive adjective, you can be sure that it applies to Jacobi! He is a wonderful, healthy, smart, easy-going boy. He's good with other dogs, and absolutely loves all people.
He recently went to the groomer at PetSmart (Manchester, NH), where they were delighted by his joyful demeanor, and his obvious gratitude.
And yesterday he had a fantastic day at Really Special Animals Dog Training Academy! The trainers were very impressed with his gentle mannerisms, as he easily incorporated himself into the group of dogs who were eager to play with this handsome newcomer!
Jacobi is about 2 and a half years old, weighs 65 lbs, has all of his required vaccines, and is neutered and microchipped.
