Jax is a 2.5 year-old, lean 30 lb. Australian Cattle Dog mix who has been in foster care for most of his life. He is fearful and needs to build trust through patience with a dog-savvy adopter, but he's so sweet, loving, and loyal, and builds such a strong bond once he does, it's worth every minute. He's super intelligent, housetrained, knows how to use a doggie door, and knows lots of commands. He's also vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. He has lived with two medium/large dogs and can potentially live with other appropriate, tolerant medium dogs if introduced properly. He does not get along with small dogs. He has also lived with cats and is fine with mellow ones. He has also lived with foster kittens on several occasions and has done very well with them.
Jax has been around older, dog-savvy kids but would not be the ideal pet for a first-time dog owner. His ideal home would be fairly calm and quiet but with a routine and an active lifestyle. He loves to go for long walks and hikes and to explore new places, fetch tennis balls, chew on bones and toys, find toys or food, and work for treats. He can also entertain himself well, and mainly rests quietly when alone. He just needs a place to call his own, where he feels safe and comfortable. He will require a few visits with his adopter in order to establish a relationship before going to his new home.
