Jake needs a home

Jake is a small 6-year-old neutered white bichon frise and miniature long-haired dachshund mix.

"Hi, I'm Jake! I was transferred from Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control to the Allen County SPCA to find my forever home!

"I am a sweet cuddly little guy. I will need professional grooming to keep my fur looking cute and to prevent me from getting matted.

"I do well with my housebreaking but may need and adjustment period when I go home with you while I learn the rules of my new home. The staff recommends crate training me to keep me safe while you are away from home.

"I do well with other dogs, cats, and older children who know how to treat small dogs.

"If you are looking for a sweet little guy to keep you company then ask to see me today!"

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
