Jax is just a year old and ready for the world. He came from a shelter in Kentucky where he was turned in for killing chickens and harassing barn cats. He was left to his own devices and knew absolutely nothing. Since arriving he's learned that people are lots of fun and so is learning new things. He loves water. Jax is a really happy guy who needs a job. He's all Border Collie and just being put in the fenced yard to entertain himself isn't going to cut it. Jax is bright and able, and he would make an outstanding sport dog. Despite his outgoing nature, Jax is a sensitive guy and a little unsure of himself yet and learning is building his confidence. I believe he was not treated so well in his first life. He will need to continue with a basic obedience class. He's very toy and praise motivated, and learning to like treats. Can you imagine a dog not knowing what treats were? He walks terrible on leash. He's crate trained. He's OK with my dog-savvy cats but I would never ever leave them unattended together. If you are looking for an active companion or frisbee dog he's your guy.
