This is JAKE

Jake is an 11 year old Weimaraner who was diagnosed with ME 3 years ago. He is a sweet, loving, senior who loves to please everyone and his favorite time is when he can cuddle with you on a couch and be loved.

This decision is gut wrenching for the owners, but they no longer have the time and means to care for Jake the best possible to provide him safest, most stable, loving home. They have been searching and talking with rescues, other individuals, etc but wanted our help getting out to more folks in our ME community. Hoping there is a loving home out there that is within driving range to Jake, so he may live his remaining years with all the perks of being a senior, sweet boy.

But, because of his attitude and willingness to please everyone he has done so well with his feedings and remains healthy otherwise. He would like a love nothing more than to be cuddled and spoiled on the couch next to you all day! Hoping to find someone who loves his sweet face as much as we do.”
