Adoption Alert ~ Jake #2585 - Adoption in Progress

Hi everyone…my name is Jake and I’m 6.5 years old.  My fantastic foster mom describes me as a pup because I have so much energy and I am very playful, just like a pup.  For me, I think my playfulness is simply my way of showing how much I enjoy my life.  I am a real fan of humans ~ I haven’t met one I don’t like.  Dogs on the other hand…not so much.  It’s not that I’m aggressive with other dogs ~ exactly the opposite.  I’m timid around them.  Not sure why…I guess I wasn’t properly socialized when I was young.  As much as I have a lot of energy, I also love being a couch potato and cuddling with my family.  I love being touched and petted.  You can touch me anywhere and as often as you like.  I’m gentle with treats and am not really food motivated.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my food but I’m not focused on it like many Goldens are.  I love running and playing and I love my walks and car rides.  I’m not bad on the leash except I tend to walk a little faster than my foster mom likes.  I’m not a fan of being left alone and do suffer from that thing called ‘separation anxiety’.  I think it’s because I love being around humans so much I simply miss them when they leave.  I’m told I’m a handsome dude with really soft puppy-like fur.  I have enclosed a few pics of myself so you can judge for yourself.  I don’t mind loud noises and I know my commands pretty well.  I love being outside except when it rains ~ I don’t like rain.  Don’t know why but I just don’t like to go outside if it’s raining.  I think that’s about it for me.  Oh, except to say I’m really healthy.  The doc has given me 100% on my test.  Maybe I’m so healthy because I’m active and love to exercise.  Okay, gotta go!  My foster mom wants to take me for a run and the sun is shining and there is no rain in sight.  Bye for now…
