Jax is a great looking young man who came to us with a bit of baggage. While we don't know all the details, he sometimes becomes startled or frightened, and he tends to become agitated. Once he knows you he will jump up and want to be next to you, but it's best to be calm. He picks up on that and then he settles down into quite the cuddle puppy. Jax doesn't feel comfortable around big dogs and in typical Dachshund fashion he barks at them.

On the plus side, Jax has a kind spirit and a good heart; he's just learning how to do the 'good boy' thing. Jax is an extremely loving once he trusts people, and he gets that way quickly. He's young and should be able to overcome whatever initially made him so edgy. We think he had a lot of 'bad dog' training when he was young, because he's a whole different dog when he's praised.

Because he's a bit of a work in progress, Jax doesn't need to go to a home with an inexperienced owner or young children. He's already doing better since leaving the shelter and coming into his foster home. We are confident a young, handsome boy like Jax will be a wonderful pet for many years as long as he goes to the right home!
