    Brought to you by Acura of Athens -  “Strength comes from the good things — your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that’ll keep you whole.” – Jax, Sons of Anarchy (Season 5, Episode 1 Sovereign) Meet Jax!! Jax is about 8 months old, currently weighs around 50 lbs, and we don’t expect him to get much bigger. Jax is a friendly, happy guy who loves everyone he meets, including people and other dogs – he even gets along with cats! Jax is fully potty trained and kennel trained. He signals by hanging out by the door and pawing at it. Jax will go into his kennel for a treat, and generally just relaxes when inside. He has already learned the commands “sit,” “down,” and “wait.” He gets very excited in car rides but manages to keep his manners despite his real excitement, as he’s become a big fan of playing at the dog park! Jax loves people of any age, other dogs, and even gets along with cats. He currently lives with multiple other dogs and loves to play with his bff ACR adoptable Eliza! He would love to be a play-mate, but is also super content to just gnaw on a favorite toy while his person watches TV. This happy guy doesn’t need much exercise to be content; a short play session or walk around the neighborhood is enough to get him ready for a nap! Ready to add some Jax to your life? Then contact Athens Canine Rescue today – he’s ready to become part of your family! athenscaninerescue.com/adoption-procedures
