Hi everyone, my name is Jake and I’m around four years old. I’m a big healthy boy…and strong. Out on walks, I can be a bit of a handful but only if I see a critter or another dog. The rest of the time I’m pretty good on the leash. In fact, my amazing foster mom says I’m a really good boy with just about everything except other dogs. I tend to be dominant with other dogs and sometimes a bit grumpy. I can get along with them at times but I’m choosy, so probably best to be in a home with no other pets…and cats are a definite no-no. I do respect a strong leader. When I have a strong but kind leader, I feel safe and respond to your world really well. I do love every person I’ve ever met, including kids. You humans are cool and if you make a fuss over me, I’ll like you even more. I love my walks and car rides. I’m okay with my food but I’m not your typical Golden who wolfs down everything ~ I prefer to take it slow. You can touch me anywhere. You can leave me alone if you have to go out without me but I’m better in a room where I can’t get into any trouble. I have lots of energy for my age and I’m getting three to four walks a day, which I love so, if you’re energetic, that would be a bonus. Well, that’s pretty much who I am ~ just a big hunk of love with humans and not quite so much with other dogs…but nobody’s perfect, right?

Jake is currently being fostered in the Cornwall, ON area. If you would like more information about Jake call our hotline toll-free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
