Meet Jax! He is a handsome four-year-old male yellow Labrador Retriever and is an absolute love! Jax was surrendered to WCLRR after his family decided they could not give him the attention he needed, and as a result, he spent much of his time crated. Jax loves to cuddle, getting pets on his head down to his nose, chest rubs, and spending time lounging on the couch with his foster sisters nearby. He enjoys his newfound freedom to explore the house and yard.
Jax prefers to spend more of his time indoors near his foster mom and is curious about everything! All trash and food should be stored where he cannot reach or gain access. Things like shoes, socks, remotes, hats, eyeglasses, etc. should all be kept away from his reach. Jax knows basic commands such as sit and shake. New noises will scare him slightly, such as getting ice out of the refrigerator ice machine.
Jax loves attention and loves to follow his foster mom everywhere. You will always know where he is, usually right next to his people. He is a gentle boy and will take his treats gently.
Jax is a happy-go-lucky silly boy. However, he is also a powerful boy at 97 lbs. and tends to pull while on his leash. He also believes he can be a lap dog! Jax sleeps thru the night on his doggy bed next to his foster family. He particularly likes the bed positioned so that he can see his foster mom.
Jax is currently being fostered with two female Husky mixes and loves playing with them in the yard. He especially enjoys squeaky toys, chasing the ball, and a game of tug-a-war.
Jax can be a little food possessive if his foster sister tries to eat from his bowl, so for now, he is fed in a separate room. He patiently waits while his foster mom prepares the bowls and does not show any possessiveness when his foster mom gives him, and his foster sisters treat together.
Jax is housetrained and has used the dog door from day one at his foster family’s home with no accidents.
Jax requires a family that is home most of the time and who will not leave him alone for long periods. He needs security, knowing he is not being left behind. We believe a home with another medium energy big dog will suit him as Jax loves playing with other dogs. Due to his size, he will do best in a home with older children as he is powerful. His new family should not crate him and must continue working with him to overcome some of his insecurities.
Jax is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
