This sweet guy has been through a lot in the last few months, and is finally ready to have a fresh start!
Jaxson came to us after he was unfortunately struck by a car, leaving him needing a serious surgery to his badly broken elbow. Since then, Jaxson has been doing wonderful on his recovery process, and is healing up really well!
He has still got to keep it easy and work on his rehabilitation process, but with the right home he is sure to continue to recover wonderfully and will have a great future ahead of him! He would do great with Physio, or a home who is experienced in a similar recovery process.
Jaxson is very sweet, and full of LOTS of energy! He gets SOOO excited to see his people, he just cant wait to come up to you and give you all of his attention and affection! He often just flops right onto his back and is eager for those world famous belly rubs!
Once he has a routine, and gets to know his people well, he is happy to just walk along side you in the yard and has a wonderful calmer energy! He just needs a little time to get his crazies out and then he is happy as can be!
Jaxson is very very eager to go on walkies, and needs some guidance on his leash walking as he can pull quite hard to get to the new exciting place. He does great with a harness and positive reinforcement, and will happily take snacks as rewards for walking nicely! This fella is SO food motivated we often joke he is like a mini vacuum! This makes training super easy and fun as there isn’t anything he wont do for a cookie! Hes also an expert puzzle solver and would love a home that can offer him lots of different mental enrichment games and activities.
Put in an application below if Jaxson sounds like the fit for you!
