Health: Jaxon has been neutered and microchipped. He is current on his DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. He has been wormed, flea treated, and tested negative for heartworm.
History: Jaxon comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. PUP was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs PUP pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington state.
Notes from Jaxon's Foster Home:
Jaxon is a very handsome boy and so playful and friendly. He loves to rough house and will play with any other small dog who will engage with him. If he needs to go potty, he will go out willingly when called. If not, he lets you know he’s not interested. Since developing his own schedule, he has had potty no accidents. He's very good in his crate and goes in on command. Jaxon is smart, active, lovable, and affectionate. He’s a perfect little companion who enjoys sitting in your lap, going for walks or on car rides. He loves having a little canine friend his own size for horsing around, that being one of his most favorite activities! Jaxon's only fault is not getting along well with dogs who are taller than he is. He'll behave and do what is asked on leash, but he should not be trusted off leash around larger dogs. If you have a little pup who could use a new friend, he might just be your guy!
Note: The above description reflects the behavior we have observed in the dog's foster home. Although PUP provides adopters up to the minute information on our dogs, we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners.
