Peyton, CO, 80831
Pet name:
Wheaten Terrier
#### Jake is a soft coated wheaten terrier who turns 6 in October. He is making nice progress at National Mill Dog Rescue and we are very proud of his bravery. Jake was a very scared boy when he arrived and didnt even go outside to play, but now thanks to his playful kennel mate, Jake goes out pretty quickly. And just recently, he actually played with the other dogs for the first time - this is a reason to celebrate!

He really relies on more confident dogs and watches them closely. He has started taking treats tossed towards him and has begun to explore the kiddie pool. He seems to like water and, the first time we saw him outside in the rain, he looked happier and more comfortable.

Jake is easily startled by sudden movements and sounds so a quiet adult only home is needed for him. He needs a more confident dog around his size, which is 32 pounds. He has not started walking on a leash, yet, so will need a fenced yard. In order to keep this precious but scared little guy safe, he needs a 6 foot high fence. 

Jake has some special needs but he is also a very special boy and the right family will enjoy seeing him progress at his pace. He is very handsome, too. If you would like to meet our Jake, please apply to meet him at

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with young children. Homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. Many of our dogs will need fenced yards and a confident dog in the family. The great news is, many of these dogs come around with time, and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
