Jax the Border Collie

Visit http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/27800051 to read about Jax & see more of his pics. If that link doesn’t work, read below:

Jax is a Border Collie who we found as a stray at Memphis Animal Services. He was stated to be 8 years old, but his teeth aren’t that old looking and he’s a happy and active dog who doesn’t seem to be 8 years old.

Jax is both beautiful and good-natured. He has greeted his other foster siblings quite well and enjoys their company. When we asked him to sit, he stood up with his paws in the air on his back haunches! He is quite a cutie!

More facts about Jax:

  • medium-sized – weighs 40#
  • housetrained
  • heartworm negative
  • neutered
  • up-to-date on shots

If you are unable to adopt at this time, you may sponsor the care of this pet.

We adopt dogs from Memphis Animal Shelter when we can. The shelter has an 83% euthanasia rate, one of the highest in the country. Unfortunately, any dog coming from Memphis Animal Shelter, and most other shelters for that matter, will have been in contact with contagious illness. Even though the dogs have been in foster care and appear to be in good health, they may become stressed when changing environments and exhibit signs and symptoms of illness. If you have other pets, they need to be up to date on vaccines before bringing a shelter dog into your home. We will take the adopted animal back, but we are not responsible for your other animal’s vet care. We always disclose where the dogs have come from. Please ask for any information about the dogs and exercise due caution if you have immunocompromised animals.
