It is with great sadness that we offered Jake Peace today. Alison and her family gave him a wonderful time in a normal family life and some of his ghosts and nerves began to drop way. However they were always going to be very near the surface. We explored all options but knew in Jakey terms we could only offer him abandonment; uncertainity and bewilderment after a befriending programme and then kennels. He ,bless would be marched backwards, to live on his fears. Meeting him was such a pleasure.  We knew eternal Peace offered NOW; not inevitabily coming after another period of 'hell'; was the best we could offer. Peace after a happy day in the garden.
Our thanks goes to Alison and family, and Sue who worked so hard with him. He was so needy and left relaxed in Alison's arms. He is safe now and beyond any form of intentional or unintentional harm. Wish his life had taken a different path.

His Story: Jakey lived with a man who kept him in a crate most of the time and took his anger of life out on Jakey. He was beating him with an electric cable when a man visiting heard him say I'm going to feed him as live bate to a friend's pitbull. The man said he had a family who would offer him a home, they are desperate for a Jack Russell. To his surprise the man handed him over Jakey to take him. The man sat in his car bemused ..no he didn't have a family waiting but he had acheived his goal Jakey was safe. He had laserations to his shoulder but these have healed well. Jakey is frightened of men and yet learning to trust. Alison and her family a local women to the man has taken Jakey in for a few days until a kennel comes up. We have neutered, first vax'd and chipped him but have no kennel as yet so she is struggling on.

This is Alison's report:
JAKEY (JRT)

Likes: belly rubs he will quite willingly show you hes belly to let you know thats what he wants , jakey also likes a ball and even knows the word he tends to hang on to the ball and is quite happy just to have it in hes mouth if it pops out he will chase it and hold it again he also knows the word "din dins" "food" "sit" "stay" "come" "down" (when he jumps up at you) "bed" and "leave it" (if its not hes ball) he is gentle when he takes food from your hand and loves a crisp if you are willing to give him one he will also gobble down food like its hes last meal  jakey does tend to pull on the lead but having not been walked you have to expect that he has also lived with my two other dogs he not really interested in them and tends to grumble when they get in hes face which is fair enough jakey also likes spaghetti bolognaise he goes mad for it  he also loves loves loves being groomed and is quite happy for you to just brush him and not let anyone else be groomed he also like to sit on your lap over all jake is a smashing little dog and a gentleman to boot how anyone could ever have battered him is beyond me .



Dislikes: Men he doesn't know he is getting used to the men in my house (x 6 of them) he has a grumble about them but once they are through the door and settled he settles ,if its a stranger and you happen to be a man this is where jakey's defensive side comes into play and he will bare teeth and given the oppertunity he will bite (hard mouth) jakey also doesn't like being picked up whilst hes barking at the door (if someone knocks) again he will bite (I put signs up telling everyone not to pick him up ) jakey hates the black nosel part of the hoover and will attack it however if you take that part off jakey is fine with the hoover I have been working on this with him and I ask him to go to hes bed so I can put the black bit on he also doesn't like the ironing board if again you are a man using it (man using an ironing board yes this does happen in my house ) again I have worked on this and he is showing a little improvement . Over all we all move quite slowly around jakey and the men in my house allow jakey to come up and say hello when hes ready  which he does once hes sussed out who they are and realise they live here too , jakey has worn a mikki muzzle and been on a light little lead whilst hes been at my house and I think this has helped jakey along as he can just hang around the house/garden and get used to us without us being worried he may bite (although he did have a nibble on my twin boys but decided that wasn't hes flavour) in my opinion jakey needs someone who will be super understanding of what has happened to him with hes previous owner build hes confidence and let him know nothing horrible is ever going to happen to him by a human hand again I cannot sing this dogs praises enough super sweet little guy under all of that .

Who do you think you are talking to!
Reference Jakey yet another abused dog knocked on our door. Jakey and other discarded terriers who needed our help:

We receive so many calls and Homing Questionnaires asking for very young dogs...ideally a housetrained puppy! We want to spend as long as we can with them; we want to shape their characters; we want  we want  we want
..and the rescuer is asked to listen to the shopping list of the dreamer waiting for the impossible "We would like to rescue a Yorkshire terrier pup ideally no older than 2 months!" It’s not the money (Only a handful of people over the years have ever given us equivalent to a price of a breeder's puppy) And you listen and you know those homes are about them, not really about the dog. They want a clean slate; a clean house; a dog kept downstairs; kitchen by night and off the furniture...but have they any idea who they are talking to? We aren't breeders... No you don’t charge what those terrible breeders charge! Shocked  

If only they stopped to connect in with life and walked our walk for just one day...could we change their conscious from SELF? and begin to see all the dogs we have stacked up in kennels and foster homes ..we're talking Jakey; Micky; Milo; Alfie; Lexi and Taffy. What hope do you dreamers give them; what hope does that give us? Who steps forwards for these very real dogs and loves them. No, society you can't kill them -YOU damaged them, you gave them false hopes; you gave them a history of abuse; of fear; you aged them! what a curse they aren't appealing anymore. So has society reached the stage of euthanize abandoned dogs just do it! Sorry killing anything over 6months as they don’t meet our dreams. It feels like someone calling a soup kitchen and asking could we deliver a 3 course meal. I remember one 'must have a puppy home': we homed a rescue pup (Mumble) and sadly she died at 4years; I remember another 'must have a puppy home' we homed a 4 month Jack Russell (Pip) he died at 3 years old. Sadly that is life no guarantees! We homed a 16 year old dog (Una) and she lived 2 years. We homed a 17 year dog (Rhea) who nearly died in my foster care but went on to be homed and lived 7 months.

The True Rescuer comes forwards and says what dogs do you have who really need a new beginning; here is my life style and here are my life skills do you think I could offer a home to a dog in desperate need? Can I give back, in order to receive, I can offer a rain of love!  Oh you rare person, you very special person...

Thank God for people like Alison. Poor Jakey but at least now he is being shown true love and understanding. He will have a way to go to rebuild his trust but it will come with people like Alison and her understanding family around.

Lets hope a good JRT family comes up who sees what a lovely lad he will be after he realises people can be nice to him. He will recover in the right hands.

Alison is doing everything she can, to try to stop Jakey coming into kennels. This is a display of his settling!

Little Jakey was finding the whole kennel experience just too much to cope with and was just too scared to allow anyone to help him. We had hoped that things would improve but they actually got worse overnight. After a quick few phone calls this morning, Alison and Sue went and collected him from kennels and have taken him back into foster.

Bless his little heart, once he saw his trusted friends, he was over the moon and forgot that everyone else were horrid people that had to been seen off.

Alison and Sue are going to continue the help Jakey through and hopefully continue the excellent progress they have made with him so far  :D

Poor little mite.  How people can ill treat their animals like that is beyond me.  I have to wonder, if they hate them so much, why get them in the first place.  Luckily, for every one of them, there are ten decent human beings, there to try and put right what has gone on before.  I hope this little chap can soon learn to trust again and find his forever family who will show him what its like to be loved and cared for in a proper home.

What fosterer has not driven others mad with their tears and questions. I personally aged Dee 10 years so that makes her at least 21 !!!

Seriously though well done for creating a loving foster home for little one

Jakey it was a pleasure to spend time in your company and to have the sweet memories of you taking tiny cheese pieces so lovingly through your muzzle. Go forwards now. You are beyond reach..and throw away the ghosts of pain..and embrace the friends of Trust and heart felt love.
