|Jakob - 7 Year Old Male|
Happy Tails, July 10, 2012
Jakob is doing great. He has adapted very well and we've gotten into a good routine now with our morning and evening walks and feeding times. People are amazed that I just adopted him because he's so attached to me and listens so well and we've bonded. He follows me everywhere I go and gets very upset if I go out and don't take him with me. My Mom has told me he'll sit in my chair and watch out the window until I come home and then he starts whining and barking when he sees me coming up the driveway and does his little wiggle dance and talks to let me know he was waiting for me when I come through the door. He is such a funny little guy and I just love him.
He is a little social butterfly too and loves anyone I introduce him too and to any dog he meets on our walks. My Mom and I have taken him into stores with us and put him in the shopping cart on a blanket and he just sits there and attracts a lot of attention.
He is getting on well with my cat now too. It took a couple weeks for my cat to adjust, but now my cat rubs up against him and will sleep on the couch while Jakob is there.
I want you to know that he is very loved by me and my Mom and by all my friends and family. I'm very thankful that you allowed me to adopt him.
Jakob is a delightful boy who enjoys almost everything he has been introduced to. He is not especially cuddly but jumps up on the couch for a snuggle when he is tired. He is very social. Jakob has had a dental since being in foster care. His vaccinations are up to date. He is a very healthy boy with no ongoing medical issues.
Jakob knows basic commands and is well mannered. He sleeps in his bed on the big bed. Jakob is afraid of fireworks but he hasn't reacted to other noises. He enjoys playing with his toys on his own but is especially fond of people playing catch with him. It is possible that Jakob is not completely pug (perhaps Pekinese a few generations ago).He chases the ball, brings it back, and drops it when he is ready for another run. Jakob can be left alone for 4-5 hours; we have never left him longer than that.
Jakob is house trained, but he has peed in the house, a few times, when he has been angry about having to stop playing and come in the house.
There are no children in Jakob's foster home, but he lived with a toddler in his previous home and, to the best of my knowledge, they did not note any difficulties.
Jakob gets along with other dogs that are laid back and don't challenge him. Jakob likes to be the top dog and won't back down so he would do best with other passive dogs or as an only dog. He doesn't bother with cats.
Jakob could live in a house or an apartment/condo as long as he gets lots of exercise. He talks and barks when he is playing but is generally quiet.
Jakob is smart, kind and gentle. He is energetic and curious. He is going to make a great addition to his furever home.
Introduction, April 22, 2012
Jakob is a delightful boy who seems to love everything and everyone. He loves toys and has played since he arrived in his foster home. Jakob has picked out special stuffies and sucks on them in his bed. Jakob is a smart boy and knows his basic commands, has gone outside to do his business and is very polite about his food. He tried raw green beans and carrots for his snacks and enjoyed them.
Jakob was a good boy in the bath tub although he would have preferred not to bathe. He ignores the cats. Jakob loves being around people but is not a snuggler, preferring to play with his toys while keeping an eye on us. Jakob seems to be a good weight and is muscular and strong. He is going to the vet this week for a check up.
