Hi everyone , they call me Jake ! My mom is most likely a Australian kelpie , we think my dad was a boxer ! My mom is a tiny girl only 30 lbs and petite .
I’m probably going to be bigger  than her . I am the biggest of my litter ! 
I love to play and wrestle . I am a typical fun loving guy . But I am a lover too ! 
I am potty trained to use a doggie door . As long as that doggie door isn’t locked I will do my business outside .
I have never met a cat so I’m not really sure what they are ! 
Come and meet me , let’s see if we could be best friends forever !

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 6 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 6 years are $100.
