Read about 10 Fido Lifestyle Types
|Size:||Large ( 50 – 80 lbs )|
|Age:||Adult Prime – 3 years|
Underweight by 5 lbs.
|Vaccinations:||Yes, within the last year|
|Reason for Rehoming:||
We took him in from a neglectful home where he was kept in a crate all of the time. We already have a house full of pets, so we’ve spent the last month getting him healthy, and training and socializing him so he will be ready for a forever home.
|Preferences for New Home:||
A patient family or person, perhaps one with another dog that can help show Jax the ropes, that is willing to give him structure and daily exercise.
We would like prospective owners to do a trial period to see how it goes before agreeing to take him permanently.

Meet Jax! He is a three year-old neutered Rottweiler mix. He loves to play and has lots of energy, but he also enjoys long naps and getting his head scratched for hours. Jax is eager to please and very friendly, though he will require a committed and patient owner because he has been through a lot. Our small rescue took him in from a neglectful home where he was very sick, malnourished, and kept in a small crate all the time. He is doing great, though, and is very responsive to training. He loves daily walks and snoozing during the afternoon heat. He deserves a loving forever home and I believe he will be a great dog. He just needs some structure. Come meet him and you will fall in love with his squishy face. Jax has some anxiety, so he may freeze or cower when confronted with new situations.
|Personality:||Goofy, Trainable, Personality!|
