My story

This energetic boy's name is Jax. The first few years of this guy's life have been unstable, and he is in need of a specific home with a fenced-in yard for roaming. He is about three-years-old and is very typical of a Cattle dog mix with his dominant yet loyal personality. He loves running around the yard and will chase toys, especially if they squeak or make interesting noises. Though Jax has had dog friends in the past, he lately has become overly dominant and would prefer to be the only dog in the home. He did well for his cat test but if he were to live with one they would both need their own space so they can get used to each other at a slow pace. Once Jax is used to his owner he becomes very loving and cuddly. He needs some security and outlet for his abundance of energy to thrive in his new home. If you have herding dog experience and are looking for a loyal, energetic boy, Jax is your guy!

Additional adoption info

When you see an animal in our kennel or cattery that you are interested in, we will ask that you complete some paperwork (our "Adoption Application"). This paperwork must be completed first in order to minimize stress for you and the animals. Our process includes asking questions: asking for veterinary references-particularly when you have other animals at home. This is simply to protect the health of adoption candidates and the pets you already have.

You will have a counseling session with one of our knowledgeable staff members who will fill you in on the history and needs of that animal, and his feeding and exercise requirements. You can ask your counselor any questions about spaying or neutering, housetraining, obedience training, scratching (in cats), veterinary care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and anything else you can think of.

If you are approved to adopt, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. This fee covers spaying or neutering, and the veterinary care, deworming and vaccines your pet has received at the shelter.

You can find the Adopter's Profile on our website.
