Jacob`s foster family reports: Jacob is a wonderful dog full of joy and non-stop energy! Jacob can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but once he gets to know you, he`s a total sweetie! He loves to chase squirrels in the yard - so far unsuccessfully but we do worry for the squirrels! Jacob does great with all the other dogs AND cats in his foster family. He is very well behaved in the car and responds well to verbal commands. Jake loves to run, enjoys a good meal, treats, and head scratches... and did I mention he can run like the wind? Jacob would love to have a furever family who enjoys an active outdoor lifestyle, and will reward you with his own special shy and sweet affection. One of Jacob`s challenges is that he was surrendered to the shelter showing wariness toward men. He has made some progress with this in foster care, but his adopter should be aware of it and know that he would likely need further positive training in this area. His foster has not observed him around children.Jacob is super athletic and energetic! He would love to find a home wiht a secure yard so that he can go outside to run and play without always being on leash. It`s possible that Jacob is at least part Portuguese Podengo (google it - that`s his body type) mixed with Chihuahua. I have a Chihuahua and he definitely has many of her adorable traits. He weighs 20 pounds- all pure muscle and energy!
