Jax

Jax is 4.5 years old and has had a very tough start to life. Jax was rescued from a puppy farm where he had been used as a breeding dog, confined to a small run. When we picked up Jax, he was extremely scared of everyone and everything, he would run away from humans and would flinch at any movement or sound, his spirit was broken.

Jax has been in foster care for the last 6 months with one of our amazing foster carers where he has slowly learned to love and trust humans. Jax now realises the world isn’t so bad after all and is now ready to continue his journey in a forever home.

Jax has come a long way and is very affectionate with his foster carers, Jax is still very nervous around new people, he is not aggressive in anyway but does need his space and to take interactions slowly and at his own pace. Jax would be suited to a quiet home with owners that are very understanding and patient, we fully expect Jax to take a backwards step when he moves into his new home, it will take him quite some time to feel comfortable around his new people. Jax needs a home without children, their noisy and quick movements scare him.

Jax has been in foster care with multiple other dogs and is much more confident when around his brothers and sisters. Jax must go to a home with another dog, ideally the other dog will be very confident around people and can help Jax to feel comfortable. Jax loves to play and cuddle, his new doggy brother or sister needs to be super friendly and welcoming.
Jax currently lives with cats, he has even been known to use a cat as a pillow at night, he would be fine living with cats in his new home.

Jax is a shy boy that has been through so much, he has so much love to give to someone willing to let him come out of his shell overtime and become comfortable. Jax will need to continue his slow exposure to the outside world and will need an owner that will advocate for him in public and take new experiences at Jax’s pace.
