Red Deer Jake unfortunately had to be re-homed. This was a very hard decision for his family, as they did a lot of work on Jake and he was the best dog ever for them. They wrote:
I am with a heavy heart .. I Stalled finding a home for Jake as long as I could.. I couldn’t avoid it any longer. Thought if I eventually had to give him up it would be in Jake’s best interest to do it sooner rather than later. I was totally in love with that dog! He was so damn smart and devoted. I put an ad on kijiji with stiff requirements as I didn’t want to Jake to be just…. rehomed. I needed to be sure he was going to a loving home with someone that would spend time with him. I Just posted the ad 3 days ago And got a response from his new owners within one hour of posting it. I actually just said goodbye to Jake 2 days ago. (Lots of tears). And still tearing up just typing this. We got a perfect home … He is actually back in Saskatchewan. A little town outside of Prince Albert. The dad stays home with his 4 yr old son and only works an hour a day at the water plant. Mom Works full time. There is only about 90’some people In that town and half of them are relatives. They have a cat and a horse. Apparently They have been looking for a dog just like Jake for a while. We were a little worried about the cat as Jake has never been around them but it seems all is good.
They drove through the night to come and see Jake and let me meet them before we let Jake go. Well.. Jake was in love with the little boy instantly. I cried my eyes out. But it sure helped to know he was going to a good home.
I got a message from them and was told that Jake loves the cat.. So much so the cat has to go hide from him for a rest. Jake absolutely loved to play ball and we played every night. I guess the little boy has him Releasing the ball with hand signals In just one day with them. Jake went with them to their sisters farm and ran with 2 other dogs and I guess Jake was the only one that listened when it was time to come home. They are so happy with him – and are In love with him already ! It helps knowing he is in a loving home and with someone that will spend a lot of time with him:.. But it doesn’t stop the hurting.
This new picture of Jake came with the following update:
Jake is doing awesome… Sometimes I wish he wasn’t so smart though.. Lol
We go to the off leash almost every day— even at minus 20… It seems he is so much better behaved when he tired. Hahah. But I’m so glad it’s finally warming up.
Here is a new picture of Jake; he is a beauty, I almost wish I would have kept the female back for breeding but that has to end. My Doodle breeding program will end in 2018 is all goes as planned. Jake’s family told us:
Jake is doing great!!! Barry took him to the vet for his last shots and received such a great compliment… Said Jake was amazing and acted like a full grown well behaved dog instead of a puppy… Guess we r doing something right!! Hope all had settled down for u somewhat!!! Here us an update pic of our buddy!!!
