Jake is a gorgeous little seven month old Portugese Podengo, who has had a tough few months in his little life! Jake was found as a puppy in Portugal, and came over to the UK with his owner. Unfortunately his owner was no longer able to care for him, and after another unsuccessful homing, he came into our care. Jake is about 10 kg and 45 cm height.
Jake is great fun, he is playful, affectionate and good-natured. He loves attention and is very well behaved around other dogs. He has also been raised around children. He loves to go for walks and has plenty of energy so he will need a dedicated, active home. Jake is very intelligent, and can be cheeky and vocal when he has not had enough exercise or if he is bored, so he will need an experienced home who can dedicate plenty of time and stimulation for this clever little man!
Jake has had very little training in his previous home, and as a result can mouth quite hard, simply as he has not been told not to. Jake is full of attitude and will have a â€˜puppy stropâ€™ if he doesnâ€™t get his own way! He is going to need plenty of work with his basic commands and manners, but he is a fast learner so with some time, work he will definitely grow into a lovely dog.
Although Jake has lived with children, we feel that heâ€™d be better off with mature older children or teenagers as he can jump up and mouth quite hard. Jake would love to live with another dog to play with and curl up with at night. Jake is currently fostered in Derbyshire.
