Jake- the jack of all trades here!

I came to ARC because my family realized they did not have the time that I needed and made the difficult decision to find me a new home. Because of all the time I sat around I did put on a few pounds. Well, ok, more than a few but with the help of good ole exercise and a job I am losing weight nicely.

I thought I had a forever home but it didn’t work out. I am a red heeler so I am extremely energetic, intelligent, and therefore need a very active family who has a job for me to do and who will know how to keep me mentally and physically stimulated. I will need to keep my manners in check as well.

I need to go to a home that has breed experience and will agree to keep things for me to do. If I think I can tell you what to do, I’m going to do it because I know how smart I am. And that includes tricking you into slacking on my exercise regime. I need to keep my weight loss success and keep it off for the rest of my days so they will be happy days.

I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and ready to go to the perfect forever home without young children (I am a hard working dog, no time for kids). I will know it when I see it, so please don’t be offended if I don’t choose you. I am just going to have to be very choosey to ensure everyone is happy and we can keep up with one another.

Well I think I have talked enough but if we are a match I can promise you that I will be your best friend for the rest of my days and show you the kind of love, affection, and devotion you never thought possible. I hope to see you soon. Xo Jake
