Jake Owen’s Dating Tip

Published by PETA.

If you are one of the millions of eligible ladies dreaming of landing a date with country hunk Jake Owen, you need to set an appointment with his matchmaker and canine companion, Vern. The Grammy-nominated artist consults his dog about all potential dates. Jake says, “Vern’s a pretty good judge of character when it comes to girls,” adding that he can tell which ladies Vern prefers. “You’ve got to like my dog if you’re going to be with me.”



Dogs can detect cancerous tumors, alert epileptics to impending seizures, and perform many other amazing feats, so it’s no surprise that they can also tell a “keeper” from a lemon. So, single folks, take a tip from Jake: If your dog, cat, or hamster doesn’t like your date, take the hint and ditch the dud.
