Jake needs a home

For those of you who don't know me well, I am a dog advocate & have several of my own so picking up a stray is not uncommon for me...this dog Jake was found on my way to a meeting w/ Fr Dorgan at Good Life Eatery on a back road in Kitty Hawk on one of the hottest days in July. Jake had no collar, no micro chip and was in awful fact I called animal control to pick him up but they were not available & I was running late for my meeting so I dropped him at the vet's. He was dehydrated, missing 3/4s of his coat, ears & eyes very infected and way underweight and very wobbly...he did manage to get into my truck...didn't want to get out when we got to the vet's. Three weeks later he is looking great, starting to make eye contact, still a little wobbly, but much more confident, eating well and loves going on walks.

He cannot however stay at the vet's indefinitely so I need your help to place him with a special big hearted person. Abandon animals sometimes come with issues we know nothing about so it may take a little extra time to bond.
This guy is about 7-8 years old, neutered, heart worm & intestinal parasite negative and his blood work looks good. We do not know how he is with children or other animals. Please contact me if you are interested or know someone who might benefit from the love of a canine companion. Thank you for your assistance
