Jake #19 Yellow Labrador Retriever Male 1 Year Old ID #2972
February 20, 2022
Jake is working on reducing his leash pulling with his new freedom harness. He always enjoys the pets he gets from the children on the court. The children now know Jake’s favorite spots to be petted, forehead and legs, and Jake would sit with them forever if we let him.
Jake has made great progress in becoming an inside of the house type of dog in the 2 weeks he has been in foster care with us. Jake is doing very well with potty training. He is learning some basic commands too. He has a sleeping routine now of going into the crate at 9 PM and waking up at 7 AM. Jake enjoys his toys and entertains himself for a short period of time with his squeaky toys.
This week Jake will have his vet recheck and will be ready to start looking for his forever home.

Jake is recovering from his neutering surgery, but keeping this young guy settled is a challenge.
His favorite activity right now is to go for car rides and to nap in the car, he is always up for an errand run.
Jake is doing really well with his house training and sleeps in his crate every night from 9pm till 7am.
He has met a few neighbors including children (9 and up) and has loved everyone.
Jake is going to be so happy when the cone comes off and he can resume active lifestyle.

Jake is settling in and learning about living inside of a house. He is a happy dog; he often looks like he is smiling.
On Tuesday Jake had his well visit at the vet and then yesterday he had his neutering surgery. Jake is a healthy boy weighing in at 79 pounds. He was a very good boy at the vet for both visits. He does however hate his cone. We tried to use just the blow-up collar but that did not work for him at all.
The next week is going to be very challenging to keep this high energy guy resting during his recovery. Today he enjoyed some time sitting outside with the sun on his face, watching the sites and listening to the sounds. His sad face is so sweet, just like his personality.

Jake arrived from Mississippi on Sunday afternoon. After a 2-day journey, he was happy and excited to be out of the crate, but he was a very stinky boy. He did well on the ride home and really enjoyed just being petted the whole time.
Unfortunately for us, the dog washing station near our home was completely booked for the day so we had to take him straight home for bath. Jake climbed the steps with enthusiasm and really was a good sport about the bathing experience.
After he was done, he was relaxed enough to thoroughly search the shower stall for any remaining treats and peanut butter on the walls.
The rest of the day was spent exploring the yard and inside the house. Jake learned about dog beds and is now a master of the steps and we learned that he LOVES to be touched and petted more than he loves treats.
Jake stayed awake the entire day, much like a toddler, every time he started to nod off, he forced himself to keep his eyes open so at 10 pm when we put him in the crate, he fussed for about 20 minutes and then slept through until 7:30am. Fingers crossed he does that again tonight.
