Pup-sonality:
Howdy partner, it’s me, Jax!  I am a silly little cowboy with lots of love to give.  I really enjoy the great outdoors, soaking up the sun and rolling around in the grass.  When it’s time to come inside, I like to make a nice nest of blankets and curl up for a good nap or perch myself somewhere to watch the action going on in the window.

I really enjoy my crate, it is a safe space for me to have some quiet time or to chew my favourite toy.  I do really like to chew so I always need lots of appropriate chew toys to keep me from looking for something else to chew on. I love to go for walks but will definitely need some positive reinforcement training to learn how to walk with the herd rather than zigzagging to and fro.  I am completely house-trained and know most basic commands such as sit and stay.

I like my foster-sibling and get along with most dogs but I am also content on my own.  I love a good treat but can be picky at mealtimes.  A good activity feeder might help me eat a little better.  I do like to chase small critters around the yard if I see them so my forever home shouldn’t have any cat or small animals.  I can get nervous sometimes when I’m not sure about a situation and may bark or make other noises to let my humans know that I am uncomfortable.  Slow introductions to new people are best as it helps me learn that they won’t hurt me.

I am looking for a forever home with a loving family ready to dole out belly rubs.  I love a good cuddle and will be a good addition to a quiet home ready to make room for a boy like me in their hearts.

Medical note: Jax was treated for positive heartworm, receiving his last injection in January 2021. This means, that while a happy and healthy dog now, Jax must be given heartworm preventative medication for the rest of his life.
