Meet Jake

Jake is a 5 year old boy from South Carolina. He was an owner surrender to a shelter there and made his way to Pittsburgh, PA about 3 weeks ago to his foster home. Jake is a fun pup who loves hiking and playing with squeaky toys. He does not seem much into ball or frisbee but will fling his toys around and chase after them himself. He is very much a velcro dog once he gets comfortable with his people. Jake is nervous at the vet but we are working on getting him more comfortable and trying different techniques to keep everyone safe and relaxed. Who can blame him, Doctors can be scary sometimes!

At home Jake is a total mush and loves to jump all over us and lick our faces. He gets pretty mouthy at times and nibbles our noses when he licks us but it's all affection. He 100% cannot go to a home with children because of how mouthy he can be and how uneasy he has gotten in certain situations. He will need continued training using positive reinforcement as he gets very nervous if we raise our voices at all. He loves being told he is a good boy and getting treats! We would LOVE to see someone get him into agility or barn hunt. On hikes, he loves scaling rock and he can jump really high. He needs physical and mental stimulation and he will be such an amazing pal for the right person. A single person or couple who is active with no children around would be ideal. Jake does well with other dogs but a meet and greet will always be required prior to finalizing an adoption. A playful but easy going dog would be best for Jake, as will an experienced ACD owner!
