Hi, I'm Dax

Status: adopted

About Dax

Meet one year old Dax. He is a black, natural-eared, docked boy. He is a big cuddle bug that wants your love and attention. He is definitely a velcro boy and wants to follow you everywhere you go. He’s great with other dogs and kids, though sometimes he doesn’t know how big his feet are and will step on our toddler’s foot. But Dax is super gentle playing with our son and they absolutely love each other.  Dax is great with people and everyone who meets him talks about how sweet he is. He loves playing with other dogs. He loves to cuddle and wants to curl up tight with you whenever you are on the couch.

He has a lot of energy and is always on the move or playing with a toy. He is working on leash training, but it’s obvious he hasn’t had much leash experience. He’s pretty underweight right now and looks like he has some filling out to do. He loves chewing on bones and tossing ropes around and, of course, showing all of them to you hoping you’ll play with him.

At one year old, he is still a puppy so he will need someone to work on typical training. He loves treats and is very food motivated. He knows sit, wait, and bed. He came from a home that crated him a lot so he does not like to be in there but we are working on it.

This is My Story

Dax needs DAR&E to find him a new home.
