Meet Jacob

Jacob is a gentle 8 year old tricolour. He is no trouble to have around the house, all he asks for is food to eat, a comfortable place to lie down and doze throughout the day and one or two short walks each day. He walks very well on the lead and when he is walking around our 2 ? acre property without the lead, he keeps one step behind his foster carer, letting us know he is well trained. When he came into care his coat was so matted it required is now growing back and soon he will be the handsome boy he once was.Jacob would be best suited to someone who is home most of the day as he gets great re-assurance from knowing someone who loves him is nearby. He gets along well with Charlie, our 2 year old border collie who shows him new things to do and places to go. Jacob follows Charlie everywhere, so having another dog as a companion would be very good for Jacob.He only barks when a bark is needed, otherwise he requires little. Once he can trust his new owner they will be rewarded with his ongoing devotion.Jacob is being cared for in the Central Coast.

Jacob was adopted on 14 February 2011 after 2 months in foster care
