Available for Adoption





Another victim of circumstance. This sweet 3 year old min pin/chihuahua mix came to us after his owner was placed in a nursing home. Jake has blossomed into a fantastic dog who adores people and does well with most dogs. He has lived with adults but would do well in a home with older children. Jake is also crate trained and does know a few commands. If you could find it in your heart and home to make room for Jake we just know you will not be disappointment with this sweetheart.
