Date Adopted: Sat, 09/13/2008
Breed: Australian Cattle/Pit Bull (and maybe Basenji?) Mix
Why I chose this dog:
When I saw the ad for this litter of pups I knew right away that I needed one of them; particularly, Jaxton. I had been looking for a medium sized, mixed breed dog, with quite a bit of energy to adopt. The problem was that my mom was not completely up for getting a new dog because of all the time and money. The next weekend my boyfriend and I decided to go to the sidewalk adoptions anyway just to check them out. We talked my mom into going with us, "just for the ride" and next thing you know we are both sitting in the pen with the last two pups that were left (one of them which happened to be Jaxton!) and we ended up taking him home that day.
Things I love about this dog
Adopting this dog has been probably one of the best decisions we have ever made. We have had dogs before in our family, but none have been quite like Jaxton. He is incredibly smart and trainable, always stays with you when he's off leash, loyal, a wonderful guard dog, very athletic and simply makes everyone around him extremely happy.
He gets so much love and attention everyday that he probably lives a better life than some human children do. We take him everywhere with us (Starbucks, the dog park, camping, the beach, hikes, friends houses, road trips), and everywhere we go people comment on how handsome and unique looking he is.
On an exciting note, Jaxton has a small part in a local independent film called "Doggie Boogie" which was filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area. The film will be featured at the Sonoma International Film Festival in April, and will hit limited theaters and DVD by the end of the year!
Because Jaxton is such an amazing dog, we are really interested in getting in contact with his adopted sibling owners to see what his brothers and sisters are up to. If you think your dog might be related to Jax I would love to hear from you!
