Meet Jax

Welcome Jax. He is 3.5-year-old Akita / Lab Mix. He is an independent dog and very comfortable entertaining himself. He is about 75 pounds and will make a nice companion on walks, hikes or runs. He loves his kennel and keeps it clean. He was in a home prior to coming to us and was potty trained.

Jax is a special needs dog in that he must have had some rough handling in the past. He is very particular about how his collar is handled and likes you to handle it slowly. Brisk movements around his collar from behind him surprise him and make him be defensive. Therefore he needs an experienced adult to help him learn to trust again. We think adult only / no other pet household.

He is very food motivated so all you need to do is show him a treat and he will do what you are asking. He has nice long legs and a very bushy and full coat so he would be perfect in the more northern climates. He would be great for a couple who want a companion dog make them feel safer. He is not a big barker but very inquisitive and observant. He loves being in the yard and doesn’t try to climb or dig in the yards we have. He is currently in Texas waiting for his forever home. His adoption fee is 180. He is a wonderful dog and with the right family will make a nice companion.
