Silly and playful Jax is ready to find his forever home! Jax is the kind of guy that adjusts to the mood of the people around him. You feel like snuggling on the couch? Perfect! So does Jax! You feel like playing toss and romping around the living room? Yay! He's game!
Jax has not met a person he didn't love. He is absolutely a sweetie pie and loves other dogs too! If he isn't playing with the other pups in his foster home or getting belly rubs from his favorite people, he can be found chilling out in his bed, chewing on his favorite bone.
The perfect home for Jax could be an apartment or a home with or without a yard. Jax is leash trained and loves to go for strolls through the neighborhood as long as it isn't too hot outside. He also enjoys visiting dog parks and making new doggie friends. Jax is crate trained but rarely needs to be crated because he is such a good boy! Jax would do best with a family that doesn't leave him home alone for too long during the day. If his new family does work outside of the home he will need a dog walker to come walk him for a mid day potty break. He is a very adaptable boy, so he might like to go to the office his new owners.
Jax's new family should have previous Frenchie experience. Like many Frenchies, Jax can overheat easily. Additionally, Jax is still a boisterous puppy, even at the age of 3. He likes to jump up and do a little head bonk with his head and yours. For this reason his new family should not have children under the age of ten. He doesn't know his strength and might scare or knock over small children with his exuberant ways. Jax is also a resource guarder. He needs to be watched closely if there are other dogs and toys around as he will want to keep them all for himself and can get nasty about sharing. He should also not be around small children because they might try to take his toys from him and that would end badly. If there are other dogs in his new home, Jax should be fed separately to avoid any food guarding behaviors. The perfect family for Jax would also be one that wants to continue his obedience training so that he learns the rules of the roost.
Jax is an easy going guy (the above remarks about sharing toys and food being an exception to his nature) and he enjoys road trips, but he is also small enough to fly with you in cabin on an airplane.
Jax's foster family has this to share about him: "Jax has been such a great joy to foster! We have become so attached to him. We know that he will go to a fabulous new family and thrive there, as well. He is everything someone wanting a Frenchie could ever ask for. Our only request to his new family would be updated pictures of "our little peanut"."
If you would like to adopt Jax, pack your bags and get ready to take a trip to the Washington, D.C. area. FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
