St. Louis (KSDK) -- Jake is a nine year old black and white Shih Tzu.

He is a special guy who will require some additional care due to his age, but don't let that deter you! He is still a playful dog with plenty of love and affection to share.

When he was left alone in his previous home he was given full run of the house and never got into trouble. He's also house-trained.

Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri's Westport Area Center. For more information go to hsmo.org

Last week's featured pet, a Domestic Shorthair named Marianna, is still available for adoption from the Humane Society of Missouri's Macklind Avenue location.
