JAKE

JakeGA.jpg

Jake is a one year old full blooded boy that came to rescue through no fault of his own.  Like so many Border Collies, he was trying to do a job.  Jake was purchased be a working farm dog.  He was unable to work on the farm due to a dominate female cattle dog that wouldn’t allow him to work.  The frustrated farmer locked Jake in a cattle trailer for an extended period of time and then took him to the vet to be euthanized.    “He didn’t know what to do with him.”  Thankfully a vet tech offered to get him to rescue. 

Jake has been in rescue for about a month so we could assess who he is.  He has been fully vetted, neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and on preventive. 

He is a highly energetic boy with a very strong herding instinct.  He hasn’t shown an interest in toys, but is highly food motived.  He is currently at 35 lbs. and we are working on putting on a few more pounds.    He is a wonderful houseguest.  Jake is crate trained and house broken.  He settles great in the house.  He would do fine with other dogs or would be happy being an only dog if he had someone with him most of the time.  Jake is Not an alpha dog and is learning pack manners in his foster home.  He is very smart and has picked up on basic commands quickly.  We are working on leash training.  He does great on outing and hasn’t met a stranger.   He can be a little hesitate with new situations but overcomes them quickly as soon as he is reassured.  And, he LOVES to ride.  

Jake’s ideal home would be one where he has a job and space to run.  He is extremely fast.  Due to his high herding drive, he would do best in a home without small children.  He has not been tested with cats but has done very well with smaller dogs.   He is being fostered in Northeast Georgia. His adoption fee is $415.   For more information, please email us at contact@bordercollierescuewesttn.org or complete an application at www.bordercollierescuewesttn.org
