|Rescue Group: Owner Placement|
DogId: Annabelle and Jakers (WA#4343)
Age: 5 yr - 10 yrs
Location: Sammamish, WA
Special Needs: none
*** Adoption Pending **
My name is Jakers. I'm a 9-year-old border collie / cattle dog mix. My girl Annabelle (11), a border collie/lab mix, and I are looking for new digs. You see, Mom and Dad and our kids have to move overseas. They cannot take us because they'll be living in a teeny-tiny apartment in Sweden; it's not fair to make us move. We both love kids and we love each other very much. We hope there is someone out there who can take both of us. If we have to be separated, we are hoping for visitation rights with each other. Think you can handle that?
Anyway, here's a bit about each of us:
Jakers and Annabelle.
Now for the human posting....
Hi, we're James and Amy and we are moving from Sammish, WA to Sweden in the near future. Unfortunately we have found that it's best for our pups to find a loving home with experienced owners rather than try to bring them on the long journey. While it would be fantastic for them to stay together, we think they could be quite happy apart as well, with the right families.
Annabelle is a 12-year-old Labrador mix (we think possibly with Australian Shepherd, but not sure ). She loves being close to her people and getting long pets and scratches. She's great with kids and cats, and overall pretty mellow except when it's meal time and she's excited for food! She can do well with other dogs if the introduction goes right, but in unpredictable situations she can get fearful.
Jakers is a 9-year-old Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He definitely showed all of the energy you'd expect from that pairing when he was a little younger, but he has slowed down quite a bit in the last few years. He still loves to chase his ball -- he'll go until he physically can't anymore -- and loves walking, running, and hiking. He has expressed separation anxiety when left alone, so he would do best in a home with another dog. He'll do best in a home without cats. Jakers has been absolutely wonderful with our young children, but he has become protective and territorial at our house. We created a safe space for him to be when new people come to visit, which has worked well. He does not exhibit these territorial tendencies when he is away from home, or when he was fostered as a pup. He is a very smart and special dog.
We can't really say enough about how good these dogs are overall. We'll miss them terribly!
