10 months old
Jakey is a handsome, sweet and loving cream golden retriever. This adorable boy was found on the streets of Istanbul begging for food. Noticing he had recently been shaved, the rescuer searched high and low for his owner but no one came forward. Jakey is about 10 months old. He loves to play, especially with other dogs! Playing with the other dog is his foster home is his favorite thing to do. Jakey has great puppy energy, but settles down nicely after he plays. He is a great cuddler and thinks he's a lap dog! He will plop himself in your lap and snuggle contentedly.
Jakey is great with the 9 year old kids in his foster home. He walks wonderfully on leash with a gentle leader. So nicely, the kids can easily walk him. He is still growing into his long legs and can be a little klutzy at times. A home with children 8 years old or older would be best.
He is potty trained. As with any puppy or dog coming into a new home, his forever family will want to establish a routine with Jakey to prevent accidents. He is learning basic commands, such as "sit" and "down." He is very treat motivated, which makes training this smart boy easy for his foster family. He will have a gentleman's manners in no time!
As if he wasn't lovable enough, he is SO SOFT!! His coat is going to be even more gorgeous when it grows fully. He loves to be petted, have his ears rubbed, a little foot rub... And he will give you many kisses in return.
Jakey will be a wonderful addition to any family, but he is still very much a puppy and needs lots of time and attention. We are looking for a family that will commit to give Jakey the training, exercise, and love he needs to thrive.
