Although our rescue centre is just for a temporary stay, we love that we get to meet so many wonderful and interesting characters. Jake is one such dog who has come to stay with us whilst we help him to find a new home. He has been at another branch for a good while with very little interest and despite being only a young dog he had very little stability or proper care before coming into RSPCA care.

Jake is very bright and a little cheeky but who doesn't love an enthusiastic, teenage personality. He loves to be busy and has lots of energy that he is eager to put to good use. We have introduced him to scentwork and he finds this very interesting and rewarding and it keeps his intelligent mind busy. He would be well suited to a home where people enjoy exercising with their dog and embarking on fun activities and adventures as a family. Jake is after a home where he will rarely be left until he is sure you are definitely going to come home to him.

Jake quite likes the company of other dogs but can be a little full on and so may be suitable to live with another dog with a similar energy level and personality. To ensure that they are both happy and comfortable within the home, we will hold several introductions at the centre to ensure everyone is happy before moving in together.

We are looking for a quiet adult home for Jake with owners who have plenty of time, patience and experience to help him to understand what being a part of a family is all about. Sadly, so far he has more negative experiences than positive so he will need lots of love, support and reassurance to help him to settle into his new life.

Could you give this wonderful lad the chance he so craves and deserves?

Why I'm special

I have been in rescue for just over six months now and although the RSPCA hotels are much nicer than where I lived before, I just really want a home of my own. I love to have fun, race around and play with my toys, sometimes my idea of fun the staff call "cheeky" so then they help me to find me different ways to enjoy myself.  I've been learning things and I find things with my nose and I play with toys, I love toys!

I like to spend time with the other dogs, catching up, going for an adventure, having a chase game and finding out the gossip but it makes me sad when I hear other dogs excited about being chosen.  You'll see from my pictures that I pose lovely for the camera so people can see how handsome I am and I always try and look my best incase visitors come and want to meet me but so far - no luck.

I know I still have a lot to learn still but I will do my absolute best to be a good boy and give you my full attention.  I love walks so I can take you on lots of those and I can teach you how to do sniff work too and play fetch - we can do it all together.  Will you come and see me? Will you? Will you?

My personality

  • I need training how to sit nicely (and then I can master the rest)
  • I'd prefer an adult only household
  • I need teaching that it's ok to be alone
  • I may be able to live with another dog
  • I'd prefer not to live with a cat
  • I'm always on the go
  • I love toys and games

Help feed animals in our care

It costs on average £8.52 to feed a single animal in our care for just one week!

We rehome thousands of animals every year. Whilst some are lucky enough to find a new home in just a few weeks, many more stay with us for months until we're able to find them their perfect family.

Will you help us cover the costs of feeding dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and more with a donation today?

*The funds collected will be used wherever the need is greatest.
