We were looking to extend our family by four feet, so stopped in to HSNT and met a beagle that was so cute— but asked if there might be a dog that would be less likely to be adopted. The staff suggested a timid, 4 year old boy named Jake. She said he was very sweet and already trained a little. We met him and knew immediately he was the one. While we were working out all the paper work, the beagle was adopted!!! I was so glad we asked for the "underdog." Two families found their hound for life!
We don't know why anyone would have surrendered Jake, but I am glad they did. We needed him as much as he needed us.
Jake already knew sit and shake, down, heel (and his favorite ‘go to sleep!’), so when we adopted him, we signed the adoption contract and then a shake sealed the deal
Thanks to all who cared for him while he was in between homes. He is a sweetheart. We love him very much and are so happy he’s ours!!!
