Meet Jake

Meet Jake! A 3yo, 50-pound thoughtful thinker and busy bee who is looking for his forever home.

Jake is looking for a family who will be committed to nurturing his busy Aussie lifestyle, mentally and physically. Energetic Jake will need regular walks and activity. You should expect a good game of fetch with a squeaky toy daily!

Jake will need consistent training and patience to help him with his uncertainty around new people. He is a pro at supporting social distancing and takes multiple visits (with lots of high value treats) to warm up to someone. Once he knows you, he is a snuggly oaf who loves ear scratches, belly rubs and playing with his toys. Familiarity with the breed is going to be important. Jake has all of the traits that have been bred into his Aussie background.

No young kids or cats for Jake, but another dog in the home would be just fine. He loves to play with other dogs but can be a bit pushy around toys when he wants them. Also, if you give him an inch, he will run a mile; his forever people will need to make sure they let him know that he doesn't run the house.

Jake would not do well in an apartment. He also really needs a fenced yard to run around in. Jake’s determination would not be a good fit for an invisible fence or tie-out, especially when he sees an outdoor critter.

Jake cannot wait to find his home where he will be loved and cared for, provided with consistent training and patience, and given ample opportunities to let loose that energy!





His adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), HW and flea/tick preventative, and microchip implant and registration.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

Due to post-adoption services provided, it is Pet Haven's policy to only place dogs into homes within a 75-mile radius of the Minneapolis, MN city center.
