Meet Jax!


Jax is a 7 month old deaf male Dane.  Jax came to us as a owner surrender when the other Dane in the home was diagnosed with cancer and the owner didn’t have time to give to Jax anymore.
Jax likes having other canine companions and loves to play but can be a little rough sometimes, but it’s all just play.  He does have some separation anxiety.  According to his previous owner, he is not destructive but just paces and whines or barks. He is crate-trained and sleeps in the crate at night.  He usually still needs to go out to potty once or twice, though ,but we are hoping with a better-structured routine he’ll be able to make it through the night soon.  
He is settling in his new foster home well, and we are just getting to know him.  He walks well on leash with just a martingale collar. He is house-trained and will either go in circles at the door to go out or ring the bell…which is weird because he can’t hear! He knows no, sit, come and good boy by signing. He’s curious around cats but has not chased.  His previous owner said he was not receptive to affection, but we have only seen the opposite so far!  He is VERY loving and snuggly and LOVES attention. 
*** Requirements for Jax’s adopter:
Must have another canine friend and have Dane experience.  GDFRL does not adopt Danes under a year old to homes that have never had a Dane before. His perfect home also MUST have a fenced yard because he is deaf.
