Jax is a very loving little dog. Despite missing one leg, he is a very active guy, not missing a beat. He's huge cuddler and loves to snuggle with his person while watching TV or playing games.
SPECIAL NEEDS: Diabetic
Jax comes from rural southwest Virginia. He came into our care when his owner could no longer care for him. Originally thought to be 5 years old, subsequent veterinary exams lead us to believe he may be closer to 7 or 8 years old. He is diabetic, requiring a regular feeding schedule and insulin injections.
SPCA NOVA will waive the adoption fee for Jax. In addition, Bonaventure Property Management is sponsoring Jax. They will provide a supply of his glucose-control food, insulin, syringes, and his next glucose check.
Jax does not like cats.
