This is Jax and he is a six years old. Jax is an Australian Cattle Dog and Blue Heeler.
Jax is a great dog for an active family. Jax would do well in an environment where he has lots of exercise or a specific job to do. He’s very smart and loyal but needs stimulation. Jax likes to herd and he uses his mouth to pull you somewhere to show you something. Small children probably are not a good fit but as long as you understand how Jax operates and behaves you will quickly learn Jax is an awesome dog and very very smart. Some training and you could get Jax to drive across town in your car and bring back pizza and beer, he’s that smart. Come to the shelter and meet him and you will see for yourself.
Update: Tommie, Ernie and Ollie have been adopted.
Tommie, Ollie and Ernie were all housemates. They were all very much loved in their former home, but circumstances changed and they are now homeless. They are house-cats who are used to the love and affection of a real home. They could be adopted together or separately. They are good with both cats and dogs, and they love people.
Tommie is a five year old boy who needs a special family. Tommie became overweight at this former home, and needs someone who can help him gradually lose weight. He also needs one pill per day which he has no problem taking. He lost his forever home a few weeks ago and needs to get back into a home as soon as possible. He is available for adoption or permanent foster, which means that Dogs & Cats will provide his medication and special food to help him lose weight. He gets along great with cats and dogs, but would do best in a home where his food can be monitored.
Ollie is a middle-aged longhaired boy with a fabulous personality. He likes everyone he meets and gets along with both dogs and cats. He lost his forever home a few weeks ago and is looking to make someone very happy. He is a sweet boy with lots of love to give. He is a large cat, and it would be best if he could have a home where his food could be monitored and he could lose a little weight.
Ernie is a handsome and gentle three-year-old who gets along with both cats and dogs. He lost his home a few weeks ago and is very sad at the shelter. He originally came to Dogs & Cats as an infant after being hit by a lawnmower . He was very happy in his former home and can’t wait to have a real home again soon.
