Dog Smiles On Way Home

April Livingston | April 1st, 2019

Jake the border collie was just five years old when his life completely changed. The sweet dog was surrendered to the local animal shelter in Corsicana, Texas and he was confused. His owner was elderly and unfortunately did not have time to care for Jake any longer. Jake did not understand what was happening and why, and the shelter was a loud, confusing place for him. The happy go lucky dog became very sad and withdrawn. The shelter staff was concerned for Jake after all he had gone through. Jake was devastated and then he was in the shelter, so they contacted the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC organization.

Jake was used to the freedom of being in a home and going outside, and the small kennel was hard for him. He was a very active dog, and the restriction was especially difficult, so the rescue group was jut what Jake needed. Unfortunately, protocol means that Jake had to be in quarantine for three weeks before he could travel to New York. He spent those weeks in another kennel in a vet’s office before he could make the trip. While he waited, there was no one who came forward to adopt the sweet, beautiful dog. Sadly, there were on foster homes available for Jake so he found himself in another cage.

So, the staff began spreading the word about Jake on social media—and it did the trick. His forever family found him and took him home; they even caught him smiling on his “freedom ride” to his new house. Best of all, sweet Jake is fitting in perfectly with his new family and his doggy sibling. The sad, confused dog is finally happy and smiling and playing like he was meant to all this time. While he’s been through a lot in his five years of life he is finally safe and finally happy, too!
