Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Hello! My name is Jax, and I am a 2-year-old boxer. I am a very sweet boy who will require a very patient family. Since I am very high strung and very strong minded, I will need an experienced dog owner that will help burn off my excess energy to improve myself.

I am a playful puppy who needs a home where I can let out all my puppy energy while getting all the mental stimulation I need. Strong, smart, and playful, I take things to the extreme. I'm looking for humans who haven't lost their inner puppy. Someone who won't get overwhelmed by my very energetic antics. I know a lot of commands such as sit, down, off, paw and even speak.

I am ok with other dogs but i can be picky, but I will not do great with cat as I have a very high pray drive. I'm good with house training but I would do best crate trained as I love to chew my toys and would hate to get into something I am not allowed to. Unfortunately, I am not good with small children (10+) as I don't realize how excited I get and with my size I would hate to knock them down.

I require a large high fenced in backyard and will not be able to live in a condo or apartment.

If you have dog experience and think you can be my forever family, call Vaughan Animal Services to meet me!!
