We drove to the Enoch shelter yesterday, and this little guy was love at first sight for me. I have a special place in my heart for Catahoulas and he is a gorgeous one.

Jaxson will only spend 2 days with us now, then will go to Apple Valley, since we are full here. As soon as one of our fosters gets adopted though, Jax will come here with us!

He is the sweetest pup.. about 6 months old. He's got kennel cough pretty bad, and got antibiotics today.

Went and got Jaxson from Apple Valley, and brought him here so that he could go in to be neutered on Wednesday. Well, turns out that he still has a little bit of kennel cough, so no surgery for this little dude.
We'll just keep him here and happy till next week, then he will either go to HWAC with us, or be neutered and stay here. Haven't decided yet, and it will depend on when his cough is gone.

He is a sweet little guy, very mellow, and he just loves the other dogs. He likes to hang by himself outside.

When we brought him home, I was very sick so I haven't had much time to work with him on housebreaking. He has been doing really good so far, and I have high hopes that he'll be completely housebroken by next week.


We walked today in the Santa Clara Swiss Days Parade with 10 of our adoptable dogs. After the parade, we went to the park where the celebration was being held, and stayed there for a few hours with all the dogs, meeting people, and just having fun.

A young girl there saw Jaxson and just fell in love with him. She sat and loved on him for quite some time, then called her mom to come down and meet him.
We talked for a while, and by the time we were ready to go, they had decided to adopt Jaxson!

It actually all worked out rather well.. Jaxson can't be adopted yet, because he hasn't been neutered, but they can't take him yet because she's going to be out of town for a little while, and they have some fence work to do before they can take him. The timing worked out perfectly.

We'll just keep him here till everything is done, then they'll take him home. :D YAY for Jaxson!!


Jaxson went to his new home today! YAY!


Well, Jaxson is back with us. Rather than write out the whole story, lets just say that Jaxson required more attention than they were giving him, and found ways to get it that were not acceptable to his family.

I am glad that we have him back, and he was oh so happy to be back here with our brood. You should see he and Levi ripping around the yard!
