Available For Adoption

Jaxson - Texas

Jaxson is a four month old (9-11-09), nine pound bundle of love. He is on a regular schedule and knows "outside", where he quickly takes care of his business. Jaxson has been in and out the doggie door a few times, but he's not mastered it as he doesn't have access to it at all times. He is OK in a crate, but sleeps in a doggie bed at night in the utility room. Jaxson walks well on a leash if not distracted by his surroundings (dogs, people, birds), and is working on refocusing on Mom at those times. He gets along well with his siblings (Kalee and Dolci) and is very friendly to the other ratties in the home; they are older and not as tolerant of his puppy exuberance, but he is very respectful of their corrections. There is so much puppy play going on that sometimes he plops down and instantly falls asleep. Jaxson has not been around cats or children, but can be tested if needed. He is beginning his social education and doesn't seem fearful of anything (thunder, water, etc) yet. He's excited about the new sights and sounds he is exposed to daily. If you need a loving little sweetheart to provide kisses in abundance, then Jaxson could be your dog!
