Available for Adoption or Long-Term Foster Placement - MD, DC, Northern VA ONLY
Jax is a stunning cream colored Pekingese Mix. We cannot be certain but, we think Jax may be part Peke and part lion. This little boy has courage and heart that is nothing short of inspirational. He is still very much a pup at only 5 years of age. He is 17 pounds of fluffy, sweet, cotton candy. Jax loves to play with other dogs, likes to chase cats (he means them no harm, he is just curious!) and gives his foster Mom a smooch every time she picks him up. TBIN offered to welcome Jax in to our rescue after his family decided they were no longer able to care for him. Jax suffered a ruptured disc and so now his hind legs are paralyzed. Upon taking Jax in, we took him to our fabulous holistic vet who evaluated him and began treating him with a few different modalities (herbs, supplements, and laser acupuncture). Jax is in no pain whatsoever and is blissfully unaware that he is paralyzed. Jax is taken out frequently and expressed (this is not hard to do!). Jax pulls himself right along and has zero issues getting around. Jax is otherwise in good health, up-to-date on vaccines, Heartworm negative, and has been microchipped. We are seeking either an adoptive home for Jax, or someone who is interested in providing him with a long-term foster home. Jax's ideal home would include someone who is able to take him outside for regular potty breaks. Another small, playful canine companion who would be interested in wrestling and playing with Jax, as he really loves to play and it is great exercise for him. A home without children would be best.
