This beautiful boy has a lot going for him! He is very friendly and outgoing with people and dogs. He has also been fine with cats. His attitude is great! He has been interested in learning new things and is very affectionate.
Pax was a stray, so we know nothing of his background. However he was in good condition when he was picked up so apparently had reasonable care. He has shown no sign of sound sensitivity or any other fear behavior since he has been in his foster home. He was carsick in the beginning but has gotten over that. His crate behavior in the house has been good.
He doesn't seem to know much about toys but is learning that a tennis ball can be fun. He will play with his food dish in his crate. It's great fun for him to push it around and make it clank against the crate. With a little encouragement that behavior should extend to playing with other objects.
The best home for him is one where he will have the opportunity to use his energy and intelligence in a constructive way. He is pretty much a blank slate right now just waiting for someone to give him guidance and a job to do.
Pax will be neutered on August 30 and ready to go to a new home as soon as he recovers. Come meet him now and he'll be ready to come home with you soon!
All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Pax's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
Pax's adoption is pending.
