Dogs Trust Shoreham dog of the week Jake is an energetic collie

Meet Jake, a four-year-old collie with an energetic nature in need of a new home with experienced dog owners.

Jake loves to keep his clever brain stimulated with lots of fun, reward-based training at Dogs Trust Shoreham and staff are keen to find someone who will continue this, while supporting him with some of his insecurities.

Playing with toys is really important to Jake and he especially likes chasing after a tennis ball. An active lifestyle where he could enjoy playtime in the garden after a relaxing walk would be a dream come true.

His new home should have access to quiet walking areas, where he can enjoy his surroundings without having to walk next to any traffic or bump into other dogs.

Jake needs an experienced owner willing to support his insecurities

Jake is looking for a home as the only pet, where any residents or visitors are over the age of 16.

While it may take a little while to build up a strong bond with this independent chap, getting to know him will be truly worthwhile.

Jake’s ‘pawfect’ match would be experienced owners who are keen on helping him to continue developing his skills, while also supporting him with some of his insecurities.
