In Memory Of: Jake

Jake was a Great Dane/ Rottie cross that started life as an abused pup who didn’t trust strangers. He had to overcome many obstacles but he became a valued service dog for me and a guard dog for my family. He could be a little goofy with family but he was very protective of me and kept me from falling down every day. We were blessed to have him for 16 years. He was my shadow, my guard, my support and even my comfort when I was hurt. But, old age and breathing problems made it impossible for him to go with me and staying at home without me made him very stressed. When I had to have him euthanized, it tore my heart up. In the end, he couldn’t breath well enough to even go outside and my vet said it was all they could do for him.
