Jax is an adult Shepherd/Terrier mix with a complicated past that makes it necessary for his forever home to be a very special one.  Jax spent his entire life outside with minimal human interaction so it is not surprising that he has issues trusting people and behaving like a 'normal' dog.  His ideal new family will be adult only with the patience for a slow introductory process and perhaps a home that can accommodate his preference to spend lots of time outdoors.  For staff and volunteers that Jax has developed relationships with, he has been known to give out some smooches and he is a sucker for butt scratches!  This guy hasn't had it easy but he deserves a second chance in an environment that will help him thrive at his own pace!
