Jax is a 76 pound Red Nose PitBull Terrier whose date of birth is 10-21-13 according to the owner's vet records. He was abandoned when his owner could no longer care for him. Jax is an affectionate and mostly mindful boy who appears to have lived in a loving and caring home prior to his owner's current misfortune. He loves to play fetch, interact with people, and hang out on the office couch with anyone who will snuggle with him. He makes an unusual trilling sound when he is in his kennel and when you talk to him he sometimes talks/trills back. He is one powerful handsome boy looking to share your life and be your best buddy.
Jax does not appear to like the other dogs at the shelter, so his ideal home will be as an only dog. He has been known to dig under a fence if left unsupervised in the yard too long so potential owners may need to beef up their fence by burying some anti-dig wire at the base, or find another solution to discourage digging (we can offer suggestions). We have not cat tested him yet but will do so and report back with the findings.
Jax has some allergy issues that are noticeable in his ears and belly and are believed to be food based. His previous owner indicated that he does best on a grain free diet in order to control the outbreaks. A vet appointment has been scheduled to assess this condition more fully and we will update this listing when more information is known.
Jax comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period. Spay/neuter, deworming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $95, more gratefully accepted!)
All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Jax is suggested minimum $95 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
