Jake is an owner surrender to GRRNT. Jake is settling into his foster home and we will know more about him soon.


PROFILE

Jake is a very handsome red boy who was owner surrendered to GRRNT. He is very good with other dogs, and likes to get feisty with cats, but will listen and leave them alone if the cat objects. He plays very nicely with kids, and is gentle with toddlers. He loves a belly rub every evening, and enjoys his meals, and even tolerates getting his teeth brushed.

Jake knows the commands, come, sit, stay, up, down, and shake on command. He’s a good boy and has not attempted to counter surf. He is house trained and crate trained, although he doesn’t need to be crated and does just fine in the house when his foster family is gone for short times, and he sleeps on his dog bed at night. Jake walks nicely on leash, pulling just a little bit, but he is getting better about that too, and he loves his morning and evening walks. He has the most graceful gate, with a grand champion posture. 

Jake will chase a ball, and return it to you. He acts like a 2 year old in play. He has what foster dad calls "a happy growl" when holding a toy. It's just to get your attention and entice you to play. You will notice a slight curl of his right lip when moving toward his face but it doesn't mean a thing; it’s just a facial expression. He has a happy wagging tail, and he can clean off a coffee table with one swipe. He does not get on the furniture, but he is always ready for a car ride and enjoys having the window down. He has not tried to get in the pool but foster dad thinks if he was in the pool Jake would not hesitate to jump in and join him if he was invited.

Jake’s previous owner said he is about 8-9 years old, but he certainly does not consider himself a senior dog, nor acts like one. Jake needs and enjoys exercise. He will be happiest in an active family with young kids. He really enjoys toddlers and brings toys to them to play with. He  is extremely gentle when playing with the younger children. He is energetic and playful, and is ready to join you in your adventures. 

Jake will make his debut at the meet n greet on 3/17. If you are looking for that perfect combination of a dog well past the puppy stage, but still active and has lots of love to give, come meet Jake.
