We have another Australian Cattle Dog as our Pet of the Week.  This one is a bit different, his name is Jake and he hasn’t chased a cow or anything in a long time.  Jake is about 3 years old and he weighs 85 pounds!

Jake is neutered, housebroken, leash and car trained.  He seems rather timid, so a big noisy family would probably be too much for him.  He is friendly though. Officer Hetzel believes an older couple would do just fine for Jake.


You can listen to Officer Hetzel’s interview about Jake right here.



If you would like to adopt Jake or any of the other dogs and cats at the Temple Animal Shelter, stop by 620 Mama Dog Circle.  You can call and see if they have a pet there waiting just for you, 254 298 5732.  You can also check out the adoptable pets on the City of Temple web site.


If you don’t live in Temple, go visit your city’s animal shelter. I’m sure you will find somebody to love!
