YORK, S.C. -- Meet Jake! The York County Animal Control spokesdog.

Jake is a fun-loving 10-year-old Australian Shepherd. He is available for community and school presentations regarding animal related topics. Jake is a well-mannered dog who does not shy away from receiving hugs and being petted on.
“Jake loves to put on a show and be the center of attention,” said Animal Control Supervisor Suzanne Edson. “He loves to work with kids of all ages.”
Jake is an experienced spokesdog and has served as the spokesdog for the following cities in California: Victorville, Adelanto and Hesperia. He has made appearances at many community groups, schools and pet walks.
