AGE AND SIZE: Approximately 1 year old and 55 lbs.
ABOUT ME: Jax is a sweet and independent boy who loves to play and is eager to learn. He is still quite young, so he is full of energy and needs plenty of physical and mental stimulation every day. After some exercise, he is ready to snuggle up on the couch. Although he is a great dog, he will need a strong handler who has the time to get him plenty of exercise and continue working on his basic manners and obedience.
Jax came to TCPR from an impound. He had been found as a stray and his owners were never located. He is in good health and was likely cared for at one point in his life. He is house trained and his foster parents have been teaching him basic commands, such as sit, down, watch me, kennel up, and wait. So far, he is doing very well. He is very treat-motivated and learns quickly.
Jax would do best in a home with older children. Because he is young and doesn't quite know his own size and strength, he may accidentally knock down a small child. He would also really enjoy a fenced yard where he can run around and play. He does well with other dogs, but needs slow introductions. Due to his lack of training, he can come off as pushy to other dogs. He is doing much better, though, and currently lives with a male pitbull mix. The two get along great and like to play with each other.
With continued training and plenty of exercise, Jax will grow into a wonderful boy.
