With one surgery over, Jake needs to build up muscle strength before undergoing a second procedure. That means PT swim time at Rocky’s Retreat. Watch Jake’s therapy treatments and the wonderful care he is receiving! Click here to learn more about the 2 FHO surgeries Jakes needs.

He’s a looker! Handsome, sweet and a joy to be around.  A typical pup that loves playing, spreading multiple toys throughout his foster home and being outside with his humans and canine friends.

Jake has a charismatic personality that everyone loves and he loves them too!  Even his three older foster fur buddies tolerate his youthful shenanigans but are quick to tell them when they’ve had enough.  He even wants to be friends with cats but the one he used to live with didn’t have much interest in a large fluffy puppy. 

GRRMF welcomed Jake with open paws when his previous family could no longer care for him. During his medical examination it was determined that he has joint and hip problems and some difficulty with his front legs as well.  An orthopedic consult has been scheduled for Jake and until then he is receiving monthly injections to help with mobility. 

In spite of his current mobility problems, he is resilient in his quest to have fun and enjoy life. Shuffling his feet as he walks won’t make him the get away guy, as you always know when he is on the move.  Jake loves going to his favorite places outdoors to practice his new yoga pose – under the patio couch with his back legs resting on the wall!  After a low-key, playful, romp in the yard with the other dogs, he is ready for a nice nap on the cool concrete patio with the breeze blowing in his face. 

Jake’s angelic face would make you think he does nothing wrong, mostly true but he does enjoy chewing and spitting out mulch and has been caught doing a little digging -puppy stuff that his foster family are working on.  He loves belly rubs, grooming playing with toys, walks and being around people of all ages.  Jake isn’t a fan of getting in the car and needs some assistance right now, once in, he settles down.  Jake is working on his leash walking, sit, leave it and basic manners.  He is almost fully house trained, isn’t crate trained but is in a puppy-proofed room when his foster family is away.  

This loving pup is described by his foster family as being a happy-go-lucky guy who loves affection, super playful and is always wearing that golden smile that makes everyone happy to be around him. 

Check in on Jake soon to see how he is doing. GRRMF and your generous donations and support will get this beautiful boy back on track.  Jake can’t wait to be in his forever home, giving and getting lots of love!
