Jax is a bright-eyed, alert, and very athletic 2 year-old Border Collie mix who would love an active lifestyle with a new family. He came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray so we have no history on his previous life. Jax loves spending time with his human friends and seems to be very smart. He picks up new routines very quickly and is eager to learn lots of things in his new home. Jax gets along fine with female dogs and other males as long as they’re on the mellow side. He gets upset with other males if they’re too rowdy around him. We think Jax would probably enjoy being the only dog in the home so he could be the center of attention. He has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Once his has some basic obedience under his belt, Jax might enjoy trying out agility. Jax would love to be able to go on lots of hikes and other adventures with his new family. Jax weighs about 30 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Jax. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
