Hi, I'm Shaxx. I just got to rescue after spending 103 days in a shelter. I am a much happier boy now. I am about 5 yrs old and weigh about 50 - 55 lbs. During my shelter time a nice volunteer took me to her house for weekend visit and said I had PAWFECT house manners and was an easy dog to have around. I look to my handler for clues, guidance and approval to make sure I am a good boy. I am potty trained, take treats gently and know a few basic commands. I don't bark much, but when I do it can be deep and loud, but really, it's not often. A long time ago (when I was 6 months old) I was a stray and in animal control. I then spent a few years living in a trailer park and was often tied up outside. I didn't really like it because all these kids taunted me. It's best I am NOT around any young children. 13 and up respectable kids only please. I was then put on Craigslist for free and wound up at the shelter before Unbreakabull rescued me. I have done well baby gated alone in a room and can crate for a few hours, but my foster says I don’t even need to be crated at all and let’s me free roam when alone for the day. I love squeaky toys, rolly balls and peanut butter filled Kongs. I am a pawsome combination of explorer, active partner and couch lounger. I would love to just sit by your side curled up and chill out. My leash manners are improving each day. The shelter and my foster say I'm very alert, smart, fairly calm and would excel with any further training. I can be a little dominant with other male dogs but really just want to play. They recommend a non dominant female dog to live with if I were to have a fur sibling for now. Oh darn, I hope you don't have a cat - I do chase and scare them. Sorry. Anyway as the rescue gets to know me better they will tell me to update this bio so please check back here. Just know, I am kind, fiercely loyal & loving and can hardly wait to be part of your furever family! Thanks for reading! Note that I have a sponsor that will be willing to pay a portion of my adoption fees.
