A volunteer writes: He doesn’t smile much, but when he kisses you you’ll feel like you’ve won the lottery!!! Found with his friend AJ (A1057017) and surrendered as the finder’s children developed allergies, we’re told that Dax is house trained, lived with 3 kids ages 2,9, and 11 and was playful, relaxed and tolerant with them, liked to play chase with the kids, and is well behaved when left home alone. Dax is a bit shy at first and when he warmed up came into my lap and gave me kisses. I love his Groucho Marx eyebrow, his square little nose, freckled ear and expressive eyes. He showed off his housetraining skills, how nicely he walks on leash, and sits for his treat which he takes super gently. He’s low key and gentle, curious and alert. We ran into his buddy AJ in the backyard and both dogs greeted one another happily. Dax is such a delight and I know that once he becomes more comfortable in this new environment will open up
a bit more. He’s young but reserved and is going to make some family very lucky. Shouldn’t it be you?
AJ and Dax were found tethered together 2.5 weeks ago. Their finder has kept them since then but relinquished them to ACC because her children are allergic to them. AJ and Dax are young dogs and appear to be possible Boxer and Pointer mixes.
AJ and Dax are friendly/outgoing with strangers. They lived with 3 children ages 2, 9, and 11 and are relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. They play somewhat rough with adults and the other children, jumping up on them, but are gentle with the baby. AJ and Dax are always together and are relaxed, playful, tolerant, affectionate, and play exuberantly together. They’ve never bit anyone.
AJ and Dax have no known behavior issues. They bark when someone comes to the door but are friendly once they come inside. They’re friendly with strangers who approach their family. AJ enjoys baths and Dax moves around a lot during them. AJ and Dax don’t mind when someone takes their food/treat/toy, moves them off furniture, holds/restrains them, wakes them up, or trims their nails.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
AJ and Dax’s family describes them as friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable. Dax has a medium energy level and AJ has a high energy level. They follow their family around, play chase with the children, and chew bones. They lived inside and ate dry dog food. They’re housetrained, don’t have accidents, and potty on grass or dirt outside. They’re well-behaved while home alone. They slept together in a crate together overnight. They went for brisk walks and pulled on their leashes.
AJ and Dax approached us with loose, wiggly bodies and low wagging tails. They maintained this while we pet, scanned (-), collared, and positioned them for pictures. They stood up and leaned against us while we pet them. They both took treats gently. They became tense but were tolerant as we picked them up and put them in their kennels.
