This cutie is Jake, a 4 year-old long-haired Chihuahua mix male who was an owner surrender at an overcrowded county dog shelter. We don’t know why Jake’s family could no longer keep him but he’s not letting the fact that he’s got to make a fresh start with a new family get him down. Jake has a great attitude and is looking forward to a new home where he can have lots of fun adventures with his family. Although Jake is a little guy, he’s got what it takes to be a hiking buddy for someone who wants a little canine pal. Jake has been working on crate-training in his foster home and done well with that. He would love a home where his family is around a lot though as he loves activity and being the center of attention. He gets along well with other dogs so would probably enjoy sharing his home with a canine companion. Jake weighs about 12 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
