About Me

Jake landed in our care a while ago after the sad death of his elderly owner and we decided now that he has been with us and is coming on in leaps and bounds a new homing thread was necessary...

Jake is the most lovely collie x greyhound boy stunningly beautiful and shiny and also missing a tail! Jake is typically energetic of the breed and we have no idea how an elderly person coped with his needs and wonder if he had not been regularly exercised? At the kennels Jake does in the main get on well with all of the dogs as long as introductions are handled well. He loves to walk with a bitch and is currently walking with Foxy who he has recently decided to engage in play. Jake can be a little reactive out on walks however we have found that if you are confident with your walking abilities this does NOT happen, he needs someone who keeps on top of him and assures him they have it all in control. Out walking in an area without squirrels and off lead dogs Jake walks like a total dream. Jake did spend some time in a multi dog foster home and got on well with all of the dogs both male and female bar one of the males but it is well known that our little trooper Roy does not always make new additions feel welcome from the off and we feel that this put Jake on the back foot. Jake would be best suited to a loving, experienced home with a female companion or we feel could quite happily exist as an only dog as long as he was included in day to day activities. Jake is a real people dog and we feel could safely co exist with dog savy children 8 years and upwards. Jake is NOT cat friendly. This lad really is great fun and such a cuddle monster and one of the firm favourites with us in the kennels. We really hope that someone sees past the *black* and *middle aged* and offers this fabulous fun loving dog a home. He is completely wasted in kennels. Jake is housetrained and travels like a dream.

Jake is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and castrated and can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit being carried out.
