Due to lack of space and foster families, Jake went from a shelter kennel in Texas to a cramped vet kennel to yet another small vet cage in New York.
“We didn’t really have a place for him and I was very upset because he was sitting at our vet,” Silverstein said. “We had our trainer there to assess him, and our trainer said, ‘Oh my God, why is this dog sitting in a cage? He’s phenomenal. He’s great with other dogs. He’s fantastic with people. What are you doing, Stacey? Get him out.’”
