Jake is an invaluable member of the Gantz Family Vineyards team, taking very seriously his duties of pointing out active gopher holes, stomping lizards out of the ivy, chasing wild turkeys, and loudly warning us of circling hawks or innocent joggers who dare to pass near our property. We were lucky to adopt Jake from the Healdsburg Animal Shelter in 2012; he'd been on the euthanasia list of another shelter before Healdsburg rescued him (please adopt). He caught our attention immediately with his tendency to lean his entire body weight against people and stare at them with unblinking devotion. Jake had an active Facebook presence until we got tired of him hogging all the attention.
