Please mee our very handsome boy Jake.
Lovely Jake is a 2 year old black and Tan German Shepherd cross boy. Jake has had a difficult start in life, but has now begun to take everything in his stride. He is such a gentle boy and despite his large size he loves nothing more than a cuddle and belly rub. Although he has spent some time in a foster household he hasn't had much socialisation in the big outside world.
Since being in kennels he has got used to a lot of different people and is beginning to enjoy the contact and interaction with my staff. He is a gentle giant who has a kind soul and he loves to be pampered and enjoys a good groom which is often needed as he loves nothing more than having a good play in my rather muddy paddock with his sisters Cassie and Poppy.
Cassie is also up for adoption and Poppy has been lucky enough to have already found her forever home. Jake is great with all other dogs big or small and is fine with cats. Jake has a huge heart and does not have a mean bone in his body. When he first came to us his eyes would go bloodshot he was so terrified, when we who were strangers initially, would take hold of his collar, to guide him into his kennel. Even when Jake came to us and was really worried by his new surrounding, he was still really gentle and showed great loyalty to anybody that showed him kindness. Jake will bring great joy to anybody who is willing to offer him love and a comfortable home.
Jake will need ongoing socialisation but he is a clever boy and even now he will come in from the paddock whenever he is called. He is an absolute sweetheart and just wants his forever home. Jake would enjoy having a doggy companion but if his new owner is home most of the day I think he would be happy as an only dog. Jake is house trained. A home with young children would not be suitable for Jake, however older children and teenagers who are used to handling dogs and have had previous experience around dogs should be fine.
He is currently in kennels near Chelmsford, Essex. We are looking to home Jake in or around this area or neighbouring counties as a home check will be done, although further afield may be possible for the right home.
