We decided to start fostering through Mid Atlantic Bully Buddies. We picked him up from BARCS and quickly decided that David was way too serious of a name for something so cute. We agreed on Jax and that is what he now responds to.
Had to carry him across the parking lot because he wanted to keep playing with some other dogs
Next, we took him to get a bath. Like most dogs, he was not a fan and tried to climb out the entire time.
Somebody save me from the bath!
We got concerned because he didn’t seem interested in treats at all. All he cared about is human affection.
I will snuggle you always if you give me a forever home!
While that is super adorable, we wondered how we were going to train a dog who doesn’t care about treats. Because this is so different from Coco, we thought we were going to have to come up with completely new training methods. Luckily, he came around and loves treats now.
Jax got to go to two pet stores the first day we had him. He even likes snuggling in the car a lot and insists on being on your lap.
I don’t care if you’re driving foster Dad! I want to be on your lap!
All of that meeting new people and waggling made him tired!
The initial meeting with Coco went well. I had Jax across the street and Cole went inside to get Coco. We had them see each other from across the street and walk on different sides of the street until they seemed to care about each other less. Then, we let them meet. Luckily, they liked each other!
Hey new foster sibling!
Jax is great about being in his crate. He doesn’t love going in it so much but he rarely cries once he is in it. He even sleeps through the night! He has slept through the night every night we’ve had him. I was not expecting this from a 3-4 month old puppy.

Some of the best things about Jax are:
- He is doing great with getting housebroken. He rarely has accidents now and picked up on going outside to the bathroom really fast.
- His adorable underbite!
How can you resist that amount of cute?!
- His love for snuggling and ALWAYS needing to be super close to you
I’m a big lovebug!
- He is great with kids. I took these adorable photos with some kids down the street when they first met Jax
Jax is silly and likes to flop over…so the kids joined him
Jax is a super sweet lovebug and really wants his forever home. Can you adopt him?
Are you my forever home?!
