Big boy Jax! What a stud muffin of puppy loving'!

Puppy Jax is your typical good boy - he loves playtime, snuggles, cuddles, dogs, cats, kids, cars.

He ticks so many boxes and is an old soul and pretty relaxed compared to other puppies his age and the fact he has never had a family and home of his own.

Jax really is the all-rounder - He currently lives with 4 kids primary school age and younger, he has always lived with other dogs of all sizes and he currently lives with a large Great Dane x who he adores. He has also always lived with cats, and he knows that cats are very much the boss of him! He knows basic commands and is very eager to please. He is house trained and has good inside manners but does love to zoom around the yard with his mates!

Jax does have one quirk however which means he needs a family dedicated to training. Jax sadly doesn't have the greatest social skills with other dogs on lead. We know he will quickly overcome this with the right formal training, which is why we need a family dedicated to taking him to regular classes. He is only a pup, and so eager to please, and he needs the right people to help him reach his potential.

All up Jax is a fantastic puppy and he would make any dog loving family complete.

If there are no issues, the dog/puppy is potentially able to stay at the home from this time for a 2 week trial period to ensure the match is compatible.

Adoption Pack including any relevant certificates and medical documentation is provided after the 2 week trial period.

Dog Adoption Policy

Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.

Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.

Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is NO 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.

We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to inform them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.

MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
