About JAX

Jax lived in a lifelong home with adults, a smaller dog and a baby. The baby made Jax uneasy and Jax likes exclusive access to toys so a decision was made to give him up. His foster mom describes him as playful yet easygoing, the hallmark of a perfectly matured dog. He’s caring and observant, and he seeks to please others. She describes him to others as a goofy and sweet old man. Some of his fav things are collecting treats and belly rubs, taking walks, fetching balls, and playing with toys. Jax is fully potty trained and is able to stay home alone for several hours.Jax is a talker and tries to mimic the humans but can’t form words, so he expresses himself in different scenarios. He’ll make playful little growl talk during playtime. He may voice his opposition to being scolded or reflect when he’s just plain tired out. His circle of friends and family will understand how Jax communicates and help him along by giving positive rather than negative reinforcements. Jax shares his foster home with an indoor cat. He adjusted well after an initial period of acclimation. Outside he says it’s all fair game, squirrels, cats and other small critters may offer a thrill of a chase. Jax has lived with dogs in the past. His need to be in charge of the resources, food, space and toys, makes him a better fit for a home without other dogs.
