This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

Jax is a handsome young purebred dark red Golden Retriever. We assume he is about a year old and weighs a solid 75-80 lbs. He has not been to the vet yet so that is just our guess. Not much is known about Jax's early life. He was a frequent wanderer in a neighborhood in Wisconsin when some good Samaritans took Jax into their home. The couple had him for about a month and were ready to keep Jax and give him a great life. Then Jax soon learned how to jump their 4 foot fence. Since the snow is so deep he could jump on the sand box and basically walk over the fence. Being an older retired couple they decided that young Jax would be better suited in a different home. Enter RAGOM! 

Jax is not neutered yet, but will be later this week. Hopefully that helps decrease his urge to want to jump fences and wonder. He LOVES people and is pretty indifferent to other dogs. He is very polite to my resident Lab and Mini Dachshund. The couple that took Jax in did have a cat but the cat is very shy and hides from any new dog that comes into the house. They said Jax never seemed to try find the cat. I hope to have him meet a couple dog-savvy cats in the next couple days. We have no kids in our home but I really think Jax would do great with kids as he has a very sweet calm disposition. So far Jax has NOT shown too much interest in toys, treats, or raw hides. That could change once he becomes more comfortable in his surroundings.

Here are some of the good things I have seen in Jax:

  • No counter surfing
  • No destructive chewing
  • No garbage diving
  • Does not jump up
  • Healthy (clean ears, clear eyes, very nice coat, etc..)
  • Sleeps through the night on a dog bed

Now, the things Jax needs some help with:

  • Jumps on you when you are on the couch
  • Jumps and paws at door handles
  • Pulls hard on the leash (hopefully a Gentle Leader will help)
  • Rushes out of car doors and house doors
  • Not to fond of the crate
  • No formal training (only knows sit...sometimes) 

Jax needs to go to a home with a physical fence and the family needs to routinely check and make sure there are no week spots in the fence or areas he could possibly escape. His forever family also needs to be committed to providing plenty of exercise and getting Jax the training he needs. He is a smart, sweet, and cuddly boy that will be a great addition to someones family! Please contact your placement advisor if you think Jax would be a good fit!
