10/29/14:  Jake is a 7 - 8 year old hound.  Weighs 59 pounds.  He is happy and really wants to be with people.  He whimpers if left alone, but is not destructive.  Very good on leash.  Great in the car.  He let me know on the trip home that he had to potty.  Such a good boy. 

He was on the euthanize list.  He is just too sweet and healthy a boy to not have a chance at a forever home.  His ears have nicks out of them so I suspect he was once tagged and used for competitive hunting.  Those days are over.  He just wants to snuggle, go for walks and play a little.
