Jacob was born on April 15, 2016 at Dolbrooks Tibetan Terriers near Lake City in Florida. His parents are Dolbrooks Tried and True (Sire) and Dolbrooks Ruby Begonia of Jetsan (Dam). He was 19 weeks old when I met him and brought him back to his forever home.
When I met him he seemed to be very happy, a bit shy, and got along great with the other dogs that were there. He was raised outside and had never been indoors. He did not like the car ride home, eventually he climbed into the back of the car and hid until we got home.
He was very disoriented and frightened when we got home but soon became more comfortable with what was going on. He took to the lead right away and now loves his walks. The breeder told me he liked the water and he took to the beach right away following me into the surf on his first visit.
It didn’t take me long to come up with his registered name – Sweet Boy Jacob. He loves to be held and petted, is very calm and will lay in my lap or next to me for rubs for hours. He’s still pretty shy around other people but getting more confident every day. We did our first trip to the hardware story yesterday and he did great! He sticks close by but also spends time by himself while Dad is working.
I was was a bit apprehensive about getting Jacob after Buddy passed but any concern melted quickly away after this sweet little boy stole my heart. I am truly blessed to have such a happy, gentle and loving new best friend. I see more of Sammy in Jacob but as he’s become more comfortable in his new environment I can also see some of Buddy in him too. He’s definitely got a rascally side to him!
I am so happy to have a new best friend!
