  Jake, 5 months Male Catahoula / Terrier  Mix

Jake is an exceptional pup. Dogs with a temperament like his don't come around everyday. He will make a wonderful addition to a family with children. He's a Tennessee rescue and was fostered by a wonderful family with a 3 year old and a six year old. Jake was very loving and gentle with them, letting the children take his toys from his mouth. They throw toys for him and he brings them back to play fetch again. He will not beg for food from them but just lays by them and takes a nap. Jake is very good with other animals and loves to go to the park. He will be a very good dog for dog parks and other situations where there may be children and dogs. He is crate trained and walks nicely on his leash. He is house trained and his foster mom reports not one single accident in the house. She walks him on leash and he knows its time to do his business. These are the commands he knows, which is amazing for a dog his age: Sit, Leave it, Drop it, and he's working on Stay. We require Obedience Training and he will need the family to be trained so that he does not lose his skills. Jake loves to ride in the car, especially as he usually gets to go to fun places like the dog park and to pick up the children at school. Jake has proven himself to be a very gentle loving and intelligent boy, but his training should continue as well as his socialization as he will be a large dog. Jake was rescued from a high kill shelter in TN when he was a tiny puppy, but was returned when he got too big. Let's not let that happen again. Please be a family who is committed to giving Jake a forever home.
