Please meet Jake,
Jake is a 10 year old patterdale terrier who came into our care due to no fault of his own but due to his previous owner ill health.
Jake is completely blind but has learnt to live with this and copes very well, he does not let this stop him from living his best life! He can remember his way around his home and is good at using his ears and nose to guide him. Jake's new owners may need to help Jake learn his way around his new home and will need to guide him on walks to ensure he does not bump into things. Jake does have other health issues which can be discussed with new potential adopters.
Jake is a very sweet, placid dog who enjoys being around people and getting fuss and attention. Jake enjoys pottering about on walks and exploring new sounds and smells. Jake is not a very playful dog but this may be due to his sight, he hopes his new owners will provide him with toys that make a sound so he can enjoy playing again.
Jake has lived with other dogs before and could potentially live with another dog in his new home. However the other dog will have to be small and calm.
Jake would prefer a quiet adult only home where he could relax, however he could live with older sensible children who will give Jake the time and space he needs to settle. He can become nervous around young children.
If you could offer Jake the home his is looking for, please contact reception.
