Jaxon is a 5-year-old male pit mix...
"Hiya, Jaxon here! I'm a big guy with a big heart and plenty of love to go with it. I can be pretty active, so my ideal home would be one that can keep up with me. I would love to go on adventures with my new family, or maybe even work on a bit of training! I already know how to sit nicely for the right price (a snack...or two...or three), and would love to learn more. As long as I'm doing it with you, I'll be a happy guy. I'm not always super graceful and often forget my size, so any kids in the home would need to be sturdy! I would also much prefer to be your one and only pup, but don't worry, I have plenty of love and goofiness to give that you won't even think twice about needing any more dogs. If you think we'd be a good match, come on down to the shelter and ask about relaxin' with Jaxon!"
Jaxon is a part of Mohawk's Foster-to-Adopt program. In this program they typically conduct multiple meetings with applicants to provide support and behavioral modification strategies to assist the dog with transitioning to a new home. After all parties are confident and a good match is made, the dog enters the home on a 3-week foster-to-adopt period. They then match you with a behavior team member to help troubleshoot with any challenges that you have (usually remotely via phone/email). Mohawk knows these dogs are going to be an investment to help them be their best self and they want to provide support.
Contact the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society if you'd like to learn more about or meet Jaxon!
