My story

My name is Jax and I am a tripod dog. With only three legs, it might be easy to feel sorry for me. But I can amaze you with what I am capable of.
We don’t know how my leg became injured, but after it happened my former owners put my leg up in a sling. They left it that way and my muscles atrophied and I learned how to walk on three legs. So when I was lucky enough to land at HSOC, I was already used to walking on three legs so when they amputated my leg it was no big deal to me!
I’m an 80-pound Bullmastiff/Lab mix and you would be amazed at how strong I am. I’ve never met a stranger and I am bound and determined to meet everyone, so I will need an owner who is strong enough to leash walk me.
I’m in training at Camp K-9 and my handler says that I know all of my commands now. He has some things he really wants you to know about me ~
“Jax has done exceptionally well only having three legs. He goes up and down stairs, which can be challenging for him, but he can do it. He will chase balls and play with ropes, but he gets tired so I try to pay attention to his body language and not overdo it.
We have gone for walks up to 1 1/2 miles and he did well, but I think that is the limit for him.
I am very proud of Jax and all he has accomplished with his disability. He will make a great dog for any home.”
If my potential home has other dogs, we just need to schedule a proper meet and greet to see if we get along.
No cats please! 🙀 I try to chase the cats in the prison training yard.
I’m a big charmer and I think if you meet me you won’t be able to resist. Please let the kind people at HSOC know that you’re interested in me or go to their website and fill out an application. I’m praying 🙏🏻 to find my forever home!

Jax is between 2-3 years old and is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and tested negative for Heartworm, Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma.

If you would like to meet him, please send an adoption application to humanesocietyoc@att.net
