Jake Palmer

2007-2020

Jake joined our family in September 2012 arriving in a crate with his buddy Joey, rescued from a high-kill shelter in Lancaster California. He was a social dog and made many friends. Dr’s Virk and Ghuman welcomed Jake to their Peace Arch Clinic when Taylor worked there. Jake seemed to think he had a job there to greet people and their pets. Kitty was his special friend, one of the few women Jake fully welcomed into his life.

He wasn’t a very big dog, and he was quiet; yet he made a favourable impression on those he met.
