Dax has not always been cared for. He lived on a chain for his first two years, no dog house, no affection, no attention, and no stimulation except for watching others' live their lives of freedom, while he was restrained day after day. He was rescued, and now he knows how wonderful life can be. Dax is looking for his forever home, one that will give him a comfy bed inside the house, one that will give him daily exercise, stimulation, and love; a home where he is a full member of a family. He came to his foster home with some behavioral problems caused from his previous life, but is now thriving and loving life and has left his past chained life in the dust. This boy has a heart of gold, and is as loyal as can be. He does have anxiety in new situations and meeting new dogs, but a caring family can help him feel at ease, and calm his fears by exposing him to the situations that he thinks are scary. He would benefit greatly from obedience classes to keep him social. Dax adores toys (squeaky toys, balls, stuffed animals, and etc.), and would be in heaven if he had a room full! He adores his 6 canine siblings, and loves playing tag with them on a daily basis. He would do well with respectful children, and currently lives with an active 4 year old boy. Dax would be an excellent jogging partner, and loves to be active. Dax does chase cats, so a home without is needed. Dax he knows sit, shake, down, and stay. This amazing and loving boy is ready for a permanent place to call home.
