Jax is a very social boy.
He is very dog-friendly and loves to play. He is doggy door trained and knows a few commands, like sit. He walks well on a leash but does pull some.
This sweetheart came to one of our southern fosters very emaciated. His owner supposedly fell on hard times and just stopped feeding him and the doodle that also lived with him. The doodle was days from death, and Jax was not too far behind her. He was only 30lbs when his foster got him. He is rapidly gaining weight and is looking wonderful now. Even after all he has been through, He is not food-aggressive and eats his meals in the company of other dogs.
Jax will do great in any home. He would do best with another active dog or an active family. We do not know about his reaction to cats. He would love a family that likes outdoor activities, hiking, jogging, etc.
