Jax is a 14 week old Border Collie mix puppy located in Fayetteville, NC. What he is mixed with what is a total guess. All we know for certain is that Jax is 100% adorable and ready for his forever home. Jax is currently 22 lbs of fun, smart, eager to learn puppy. Jax is medium to high energy. He is very velcro and sticks close to his people and doggie friends. He loves cuddles, belly rubs and gives the best puppy kisses.

His tail never stops wagging. He’s one very happy go lucky boy. He loves playing with toys and running zoomie laps around the yard with his foster pack. He does great with sharing his toys with other dogs, too. Jax will need his adopter to be willing to give him outlets to burn off his energy and to work his smart mind so he doesn’t spend it himself in a destructive way. While he is high energy, he does settle and will happily entertain himself with toys or a good nylabone as long as his activity needs have been met. Jax is teething and does require the occasional redirection to chew on appropriate things, but does so easily. He is also doing great with learning the command for “leave it”. He really is a very smart boy and is learning puppy basics quickly.

He loves to work for treats and positive praise. He is making great progress with house training, but will need his adopter to understand that he is limited on how long he can go without a potty outing. His bladder is still growing along with the rest of him. Jax is fully crate trained and sleeping through the night. He loves car rides. The ideal home for Jax is with a person that is willing to continue positive based training and socialization exposure. A fully fenced yard is ideal so he can safely run out those puppy zoomies. Preferably a home with another playful dog sibling as he absolutely loves his foster pack. Jax is not suited for apartment living. He is great with children, but being that he is an energetic young puppy that is still learning to contain his excitement when playing and greeting people, children 5 years and up would be best. He has not had exposure to cats. He is up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and on monthly Heartworm and flea/tick prevention. He will require neuter per our contract after 6 months of age.

There is a $50 neuter deposit that will be refunded upon proof of neuter. Jax is one amazing boy and is so full of potential.
