Jake’s Journey Begins

Hi! My name is Jake. You might call me the boomerang dog for being almost adopted a bunch of times before I found my forever home. Now I can share my experiences with everyone, thanks to my hero, Daniel the Beagle.
I’m your classic all-American mixed breed dog. Sometimes it’s funny to hear people try to guess what I am. Hey, I’m a dog! And I’m lovable, smart, and pretty handsome, if I do say so myself. What more does anyone need to know?
I must have started life in a nice home because I’ve never been the least bit shy around anyone. For some reason, my people didn’t come looking for me when I ended up trying to get by on the streets in a small town. One day a lady put me in a cage in a truck. People called her the dog warden and some dogs had warned me to stay away from her, but she seemed nice enough. She gave me treats and petted me.
She took me to a not so nice place. It was a barn with big cages and some really big dogs. I just wagged my tail and they wagged right back. Still, it was a dark, scary place for a little guy like me. The lady apologized and promised to find a way to get me out soon.
Sure enough a friend of hers took me in as a foster dog. She’d even take me to work with her at her office. That was fun because I got to hang out where lots of people would talk to me and pet me. She said I was good therapy for the folks who came there. But she couldn’t keep me.
One day, a young man who used to come to the office decided I was the dog for him and off I went to live in his apartment. For lots of dogs, this would be the end of the story, and I’d live happily ever after with my new friend. I didn’t know it then, but it was just the beginning of my journey.

About Jake

I play with my three best friends, Bodhi, Freddie, and Gina. They're all rescued dogs, too. I'm black and white with a curled tail. My favorite nap spot is on the couch or anywhere the sun is shining. My age and origins are a mystery. I'm a happy-go-lucky type with a smile for everyone.
