ADOPTED ON 10-03-15 – Little Jax has had a rough start in his first 3 years on this earth, but we have made a promise to him that he will never have to experience all these hardships ever again. Jax’s foster mothers’ son was helping a friend move furniture when he noticed a little dog outside next door. He was shivering as it was 20 degrees out and the dog appeared extremely malnourished. Her son went and knocked on the door next door and told them it was too cold for the dog to be outside. The tenants informed him, that it was not their dog and the previous owners had left him there. They said ” we throw him some scraps…. every once in a while.” Jax’s foster mother’s son was infuriated by this and he picked up Jax and put him in his truck and took him home. It was there that they bathed him and fed him, and gave him a warm place to sleep. Our foster said you could tell by the look on Jax’s face he was extremely grateful. Jax has every reason in the world to hate humans, but he doesn’t. He has lots of love to give, and is being shown that humans are good every day now. Jax will be able to travel north on June 1, 2015.
This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.
RESCUE IS THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM
Jax is a 3 year old male Toy Poodle mix. He was recently neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Jax is Heartworm positive and currently receiving treatment. He will be able to come up North in April. Jax has a low activity level and loves to just curl up and sit in your lap. He is a little timid with new people at first, but once he realizes you are nice, you will have a new friend ready to cuddle! Jax does very well with dogs of all sizes, he likes to curl up next to his fosters older pit-bull and take naps. Jax sometimes likes to take food to his bed and stand guard over it. He will let the other dogs know that the food is his, but he has never shown any signs of aggression. His foster mother is able to take the food away and can even take it out of his mouth. He only shows disappointment when this happens. The foster is actively working on breaking this behavior. She feels that he does this just because he had gone hungry for so long, and always had to wonder when he would eat next. As time goes on, and Jax realizes that he will never have to wonder if food is coming again, we are confident that this behavior will diminish. He will be ready to come north the last part of April or the first part of May.
Jax loves to play with the other dogs and to fetch toys that are thrown. He also enjoys barking at squirrels and napping in the sunshine. He absolutely loves kids! He is very gentle, and even went to a few Little League games down south and was very polite with all the kids! House training is a work in progress, as he was just recently neutered. Jax rides fine in the car. Generally he is crated for his safety, but he also does fine loose. Jax is excellent in the crate and has wonderful leash skills.
The ideal home for Jax would be one where he could get lots of attention. He would be ideal for an elderly person, as his activity level is low and his favorite thing to do is curl up in someone’s lap. On the other end of the spectrum he would also do well in a family with children, as he is very gentles and loves their company. It is preferred that his new family’s yard be fenced in, but it is not a deal breaker. However, he should never be left unattended. His behavior with cats is unknown. This little guy has lots of love to give and is as sweet as can be. Do you have a spot for Jax in your lap and in your heart? Please fill out and adoption application if this sounds like the right match for you!!

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.

- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
