Lexington, KY: Found Dog, Jake, Needs Rescue ASAP! Lab/Newfie mix, Vetting!

He's beautiful! Big Jake was found by a good Samaritan with no room, must find him a home immediately.
CONTACT: Sarah at
TWHRA was contacted by a good Samaritan requesting help in finding placement for a stray dog she found. She is calling him Jake. For several weeks efforts have been made to find Jake’s owner, but to no avail. This kind person does not want to take Jake to the pound, but she cannot afford to keep a fifth dog; she already has four of her own.

Jake has been taken to the vet since being found. He is already neutered, and has received his rabies and distemper/parvo vaccines, and heartworm/flea/tick preventatives. Jake is a black lab/newfie mix, about 100 pounds, vet estimated him to be 4-6 years old. Jake is very friendly, great with other dogs, cats, people and ferrets too! He is house-trained and does not require a crate when left alone in the house. It is believed that Jake may have previously been a farm dog, as it has taken him a while to adjust to ‘city’ life, but he’s come around quickly and is getting comfortable with his surroundings. Jake does have a tendency to attempt to bolt out of the front door when it’s opened. He would need a fenced in back yard and caution must be taken when going in/out of a door that does not lead to a fenced area.

This good Samaritan needs to find placement for Jake as soon as possible. If your rescue can help Jake, please email Sarah at TWHRA is willing to provide some transport assistance. Please feel free to share and crosspost. No internet classifieds or craigslist please.

Thank you!
