01/10/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I was totally thrown off by Jaxon’s beauty, an unusual mix of a Great Dane and a Pitie…He was quiet in his kennel while looking intensely at me and seeing me taking others for a walk…His turn came. He was hoping, I think to come out of his den leash free and played gently with the rope..Although he exited with calm his ward, he growled back at an aggressive dog challenging him from his kennel. Jaxon is surprisingly very good on the leash, strolling mostly at my pace and very occasionally marking his territory. Few large dogs are seen on the other side of the street , causing no ill reaction on his part. Free in a pen, he comes right away when called and sits nicely on command. He was a little hand shy at first but came quickly out of his shell, even looking for comfort into my arms as well as staff’s. Treats and a ball get him all excited.. He jumps, his eyes are bright, his mouth is open…A “sit down” brings him back to earth and he obliges…Jaxon likes to play with the ball and he juggles it between his front paws. He is a magnificent dog, beautifully made although a bit on the thin side. Jaxon was owned since tender puppy hood and comes with very good comments. His former owner qualified him as very affectionate and playful. The admission counselors note that he was friendly, sweet and attempted to be a lap dog…at 77 pounds… He lived and played with a small child but might have knocked him down a few times because of his size…He was tolerant of the house cat… He would be house trained and crate trained and bark at dogs met on the street. In a nut shell..Jaxon is a gorgeous big boy, powerful, playful and affectionate.He might need some taming in his enthusiasm to play and socialization with his peers. Jaxon is all worth it and will make quite an awesome friend to the one who will meet him and adopt him from us. Jaxon is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to be yours..

01/12/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Jaxon rushes into the pen with a stiff body and nips at the female helper dog, ceasing when handler correction is offered. He then re-approaches and offers a few play bows but maintains a stiff body while exhibiting these behaviors. When the helper dog begins to run through the yard, Jaxon becomes aroused, vocalzing and again, nipping at her. His owner reports that on leash he will lunge toward and bark at other dogs, but his behavior in a home with other dogs is unknown. Based on this information the behavior department recommends that Jaxon does not go to a home with other dogs until his behaviors off leash can be followed up on.
