Meet Jake, this pint sized little dog is going to be Vail, Colorado’s next snow patrol dog! This super smart puppy is being trained by a member of the rescue squad and the dog is learning fast. Jake is only 10 weeks old and he has a lot to learn before he can become a search and rescue dog. This puppy really seems to love the snow and while he is out training, he takes some time off from his studies to play around in the wet stuff. Jake doesn’t seem to mind that it’s cold out and even sticks his nose in the snow. He moves around in the snow with grace and you can tell right away that he is going to make the perfect rescue dog. Jake will be valuable member of the team and when someone goes missing, he will be right there to help out.
Jake’s trainer really seems to love him very much. The man has become very attached to the dog and loves spending quality time with him. The two really have hit it off right from the start. Jake will probably end up with the man who is training him and they will work well together. This dog will have a very important job once he learns the ropes and gets a little older. If someone has fallen into the snow and needs to be found, it will be up to him to locate them. These patrol dogs are there in case someone goes missing and without their help many people would not be found in time.
Once Jake reaches a certain age, he will be allowed to patrol the slops and keep people safe. He will be wearing a special vest that identifies him as a rescue dog and it helps keep him warm as well. If you ever go to Vail to snow ski, you just might run into this very cute pooch. It’s really fun watching this little guy learn and knowing that he will be the next Vail patrol dog, will put your mind at ease. You can check out Jake in the video located below.
