Hi, my name is Jax! I am a three year old black lab/German shepherd mix. I was found with my four sisters and mom when I was less that a month old and was fostered by Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue. When I was 4 months old, I was adopted by my mom and dad on January 10, 2014. It was love a first sight (I have that effect on humans). Both mom and dad are big believers in well behaved puppies, so they started me on training. I competed basic, intermediate, and advanced. I also got my Canine Good Citizenship certificate. Mom and dad make sure I get to play with lots of other dogs by going to K-9 Camp daycare a few times a week.
When I was a year old, mom signed up to join Wags for Hope. She went to orientation and the education classes without me then we had the evaluation, which I got to go to. She was very nervous because I'm a wild dog at home (or so she claims), that she made sure we went last so no one would be there to see me act up. Boy I fooled her! I was on my best behavior and ROCKED the exam. Since then I've been visited nursing homes, assisted living homes and the READ program in libraries. I really enjoy people so mom decided to test for Level II which would allow me to visit FMH. We tested for Level II in November 2016 and once again I was a very well behaved pup and passed the evaluation.
We've been visiting the hospital and I love seeing the patients and staff. Mom is very proud of me and constantly brags on what a good pup I am. I am very lucky to have a wonderful family and a job I enjoy.
