Meet Jake, an 8 year old #Retriever who spent much of his life living in a cupboard. When Jake was #rescued he had lost most of his hair, had raw, scabby skin and a burnt tail. He found the most amazing foster home and now, many months on he's made a new friend. Austin is 11 and has ASD, the moment he put his arms around Jake's neck Jake calmed and lay on the ground for a cuddle. While walking Jake would pull on the leash but the moment Austin took it the leash went slack and the two walked side by side. He sat when Austin told him to and Austin talked to him like an old friend.
Austin was particularly concerned that Jake didn't have a last name,... but it looks like he'll have our last name very soon!
