Adopt Jax a Tan/Yellow/Fawn Labrador Retriever / Mixed dog in Annapolis
JAX is a 1-year-old neutered male yellow labrador. Jax weighs 55lbs and is up to date on shots. This dog is approved for homes with kids ages ten and up. DESCRIPTION Jax, Red, and Captain came from the same litter. The previous owner kept the three pups, but then they all grew, and they couldn't take care of them anymore. They're not bonded, but they do need to go to a home with another dog, as they've always had a canine buddy. They all rode well in the car, but Jax is a bit of an escape artist, so be careful when opening doors that he doesn't get out of the car, or the house. These pups will need to go to obedience training and have regular exercise so they can become sweet companions. Jax and his siblings were owner surrenders to the shelter when they got too big. UPDATE: Jax is a sweet and loving boy. He loves to give kisses and sit right next to you. He likes sneaker toys and other dogs. He rides well in the car and is fine on the leash. As a young, high-energy pup, he needs lots of exercise. His exercise regimen should include a couple of long walks each day, as well as dog-on-dog playtime at doggy daycare, the dog park, or in a yard with a dog friend or two. He does need crate training, with zip ties used to secure the sides together to prevent escape. With plenty of exercise and the training, Jax will be a fun, loving addition to someone's home. UPDATE: Jax just spent a week volunteering at an academy class at Peaceable Paws. He learned sit, down, polite leash walking, wait for my food, and leave it. All week, he heard “Good boy”, ”you're a doll”, “you're so sweet”, “someone will be lucky to have you". Tomorrow is graduation day and he gets to show off everything he learned all week. He is excited to find a forever home with a doggy buddy:) Jax's teacher was grateful that he was such a good student. Because he grew up in a pen with his siblings and wasn't exposed to a lot of things, he can be a bit timid when you 1st meet, but he has a stunning disposition and warms up quickly. He enjoys the outdoors and taking hikes. He loves to run around the yard and will need to go to a family with a physical fence. Jax needs a family who will not leave him alone for a long work day. He is used to being with other dogs and loves their company. After he gets the right amount of exercise, he settles down for a nap. He doesn't like to be crated much, so that is a work in progress and he can stay for short periods with a frozen kong, or a favorite durable toy. This young boy has already proven that with the right amount of exercise and continued obedience training, he will be an amazing companion for someone who puts in the time. He comes with a complimentary 7-week Nice Manners class at Peaceable Paws in Fairplay, MD. UPDATE: Jax loves being with other pups (the more the merrier!) and people. Nothing beats a good cuddle session after a full day of play - check out his snuggle with the resident black labrador in the photos. If you like exciting outdoor adventures followed by late afternoon naps in the sunny spot, Jax is a perfect match. This sweet boy is very gentle and loving. He wants to be with companions, both canine and human. Jax has excellent leash manners, loves walks and is learning to go for runs with his foster brother.
