Jake Mercer
Summer 2004 to March 2011


We adopted Jake from ECGRR in May 2005.  He was a perfect match for our family.  We loved his quirky behaviors as well as his vocal talent.  He could say “I Love You”, “Oh, Mama” and “Good Morning”.  He also knew when to lend his body as a pillow/heating pad as in the case of when his mom Kelly was recovering from surgery.  Every second with him was a joy, but he had many health issues including severe allergies and ruptured ACLs.
