This Week's Featured Adoptable: Jake

Have you ever seen a more handsome boy?  Just look at that beautiful brindle.

Jake is a two-year-old Plott Hound mix who has stolen the hearts – and laps – of everyone at CWAC.  Jake came to us from one of the highest-kill shelters in the country: Lancaster Animal Shelter in California.  Jake was brought to the shelter with his sister, former CWAC adoptable, Glory, after their elderly owner passed away.  Jake quickly earned a reputation as a talented escape artist after breaking out of the shelter twice.  He was then rescued by the Heigel Hounds of Hope and was on his way to Salt Lake City.

Jake loves to smile and is very active.  He would be the perfect hiking, running or biking companion.  He’s very gentle but doesn’t quite know his own strength, so a home with older children would probably be better.  He’s also a big lap dog and won’t hesitate to snuggle onto your lap whenever he gets a chance.  Jake loves to chew, and has employed this skill while honing his escape from crates.  He is dog-friendly, but cat selective and is house trained. 

Plott Hounds are touted as one of the most trainable breeds, as we’ve found out first hand at CWAC.  Jake is eager to learn and is able to get along with everyone.  True to his breed, Jake is active, brave and enthusiastic – and is looking for the perfect family to call his own.

Changing Lives Through Canine Companionship

One in four Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans return home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. More than four million healthy, adoptable animals will be euthanized in shelters this year. These dogs can provide an understanding, loving companion that can help these veterans cope with debilitating flashbacks by bringing them back to the present, therefore helping them re-assimilate back into civilian life.

Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and returned veterans together. Vets benefit from the healing companionship of the dog and shelter dogs' lives are saved by finding loving homes.
