Meet Jax

Jax is a beautiful blue-eyed Border Collie - blind in one eye, and vision impaired in the other. He is a young boy, born on 3/7/2018. A good citizen was working in west Texas and ran across a large group of pups being transported to Colorado. He felt sorry for him and decided to try to help him out. Up to that point (4 - 5 months old), Jax had been kept in a kennel almost all the time. His rescuer had him transported to Texas to a trainer who kept him about 10 weeks. The trainer took him to a dog eye specialist in Houston and he is totally blind in the left eye. He does have some sight in the right eye and is able to follow the other dogs. He was kept with other dogs and did great, he even swam in the creek. After his training the rescuer took him to his home in Louisiana, thinking he would fit in with his crew of female dogs. Unfortunately, the rescuers home and yard was much too small. He felt he was doing a disservice to Jax as he needed the room that a typical Border Collie needs.

Jax is quick to learn and used the doggy door right away. He is good with the other dogs and not aggressive at all! He is very, very lovable and smart but he just needed another environment. Now that Jax is in rescue, he is doing great in a crate and still working on potty training. As long as he isn't given too much water in the evening, he is fine until the morning. He loves to run and play with his foster parent's dogs. He is also a total snuggle bug and just wants love and affection.

Jax would be best with an active family and no children under 10 years of age. We would suggest a visible fence. He is up-to-date on all vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He will require monthly medications for fleas, ticks and heartworms. So, what are you waiting for?
