Laid back rescue boy Jaxson has oodles of love to offer

Jaxson is a beautiful boy who is set to reward someone with the kind of love only a true rescue can give you.

He is one of seven puppies rescued from a town notorious for the cruelty they show street dogs.

The mixed breed puppies were born in the depth of winter and would not have survived but for the kindness of a local who tried to keep them fed and out of harm’s way.

Eventually she alerted a well known animal welfare volunteer to their plight in the hope of finding somewhere more safe for them.

She in turn contacted Animal Friends of Turkey to ask for our help but at that time our Sanctuary and foster care network were full to capacity.

A place was eventually found for them with a foster carer in Kas who managed to look after them for a few weeks before spaces eventually came free with us in AFOT.

They have been with us now since June and they are now just over a year old.

Jaxson was a little wary when he first came into foster care but as he has become more and more sure of his surroundings his happy, lovable nature has been shining through.

He has a fantastic laid back character and has a serene not in your face approach to life. He is happy to watch and take everything in that goes on around him.

He is a very playful boy though and loves nothing better than playing with the other dogs in care.

He is a large breed dog and is currently weighing in around 25-28kg, and we believe he still may have some growing to go.

He is absolutely stunning to look at and certainly has a star quality about him.

Jaxson is near perfect on the lead and is great with other dogs

He loves his cuddles and me time and he is now showing the signs of trust that always comes with the right care and handling.

He sometimes needs a little encouragement to go out for a walk but once he is on his way he absolutely loves it. He is near perfect on the lead and it is a proud pleasure to have him by your side.

His confidence has grown so much in care and this will continue with a home where he can get plenty of exercise. With this he is bound to thrive and blossom.

He is clearly bright and he will benefit from a continuation in his training once he arrives in the UK.

Jaxson is a typical rescue and we know from experience that these are just the type of dogs that offer the deepest and most meaningful bond to those who are prepared to invest the time and love into them.

Someone will be lucky enough to be that person.

He will soon be ready to travel to the UK and the task now will be to find just the right home for him. We will be looking for just the right person to give Jaxson the home he needs.

If you think that could be you then please check out what’s involved in taking on one of our rescue dogs by clicking this link and reading our Dog Adoption Policy guidelines.

A home check is always made and while there is no adoption fee required, we do ask for a voluntary donation to help towards our costs.
