Jake is an adult Australian Shepherd mix who was surrendered to the shelter several months ago, when his owner could no longer take care of him. He has a soft tri-color coats with patches of merle coloring. Jake loves to take walks and knows some basic commands. He is a little overweight and would do great in a home where he had a controlled diet and lots of exercise. Jake has been waiting patiently for a forever home, and we would love to find him one soon. Please stop by and meet him. Cornelius Animal Shelter
