About me

'Great news, I'm reserved!

Hi I'm Jake,

As an older chap, I think I look rather dashing now the grey hairs are starting to show, don't you?.....I'm sure its rather fashionable!

Now in my twilight years, I'm looking for a cosy retirement home. I still love to play and to go out for my walks, I'm just not as spritely as I used to be. I do love being around people, I can really see myself as a companion dog, sat by the fire with you, or in a sunny spot in the garden. I'm happy to join in with anything you want to do.

Just a thought, but if you fancy rehoming two dogs, check out my awesome friend Troy, who is also looking for a new home.....

Anyway, if you'd like to know more about me, contact the centre asap!

Thank you Jake.
