Profile


8/6/05: Hello from Jake's Foster Mom,

Jake started his day in La Crosse, then on to Rochester where he was transferred to another car and driven to Bloomington. After a little break on the grass and pets and scritches, it was off to the DoggieMobile and St. Cloud. Whew....what a trip for an older gentleman. He rides like a charm, just stretches out and snoozes, no nosing around, etc.

Jake is a big boy, about 88lbs., which means a diet is in his future. He will go to the vet on Monday or Tuesday. He has met my resident Golden girl, Reba (age 12) and both cats, one of which decided walking under Jake was easier than walking around him!

We spent some time outside getting the lay of the land, meeting the neighbors (the little 5 year old girl next door is my child friendly tester and he passed :) and then came in to have a snack, since I didn't know when he had eaten. He didn't want it out of my hand, but once the bowl was down he was all for it. To say this guy is laid back is an understatement :) He has shown no serious interest in any of us....human or 4 legged. I am thinking he is overwhelmed by the long day in vechicles and strange new surroundings.

Thought we'd send a couple of pictures out so everyone can see how handsome this gentlemen is. He seems to get along with everyone, dogs both male and female and couldn't care less, at this point, about the cats, and no food guarding. Give us a couple of days and we'll see what personality traits come out from our quiet gentleman. Keep checking the site for updates cuz once this guy is ok'd by the vet, he'll be gone soon. He will make a wonderful companion for a single, couple or family. Oh yes, he doesn't run off or bolt out the door...whew, what a guy :)
