is an 11month old sable and white Collie boy
who is fully vetted. Jake was an owner
surrender to a shelter. He was brought
in with his mother, Tess (see below).
Jake is a
great collie boy who really likes to be included.
He likes to be around the other two collies in the
house and particularly likes the family cat. He will
chase him playfully but will also be very gentle. I
would strongly recommend that he not be an only dog.
He needs to belong to a "pack". He is a very smart
dog and a quick learner. He never has had an
accident in the house and is left out of the crate
all night now with the others. I would say he is
house trained. He is not good with the "city
sounds". He gets scared and wants to flee with loud
noises. I think a fenced in yard is his best bet or
definitely restrained with a long lead or tie
out until he gets more comfortable with the strange
noises. During walks he gets very nervous when cars
pass us and pulls alot. We are
trying to get him used to it but he has a way to go
yet. Not sure of thunderstorms yet, haven't had one
yet. Not too hopeful though. He's learning to walk
on a leash without pulling and does enjoy going on
them with the others. He knows where all the dog
toys are and pulls them out to play with them daily.
He greets the family with a wagging tail and happy
face when we get home. He's a happy, sweet, lovable
boy and a genuine love as he has stole all our
Jake was fostered in Eau Claire, WI.
