Meet Wade - your next loyal and loving companion, formerly known as Jax! This handsome dog captures the heart of everyone he meets with his charming and affectionate demeanor. Fully house-trained, Wade is a master at commands such as "sit" and "stay," and responds eagerly to his name. He is a joy to be around, always ready to snuggle up or lay his head on your lap for some affection.

Wade thrives in an indoor environment where he displays his gentle and easygoing nature but also loves to explore the outdoors, making him an excellent buddy for your hiking adventures or casual walks, where he pulls slightly on the leash but it's nothing too troublesome. While he currently prefers being the only pet in the home, his sociable and friendly attitude towards people shines, though his previous experiences with kids are unknown.

Not just a pretty face, Wade is also brilliant and food-motivated, making further training a fun and rewarding process. He finds comfort and security in his crate, happily spending time there or roaming freely around the house when you're away. He loves his toys and his food, without showing any signs of guarding - truly a testament to his sweet nature.

Wade recently discovered the joys of the lake, splashing around and fishing for sticks while exploring an array of new scents. His adventurous spirit makes him a perfect companion for any outdoor endeavor, echoing his love for playful explorations in nature.

If you're looking for a dog who is just as happy to join you on a jog as he is to sneak onto the bed for a cozy nap, Wade is your perfect match. His care routine includes high-quality food and some coconut oil which keeps his coat shiny, addressing his minor skin flakiness without the need for medication.

Come meet Wade and let his joyful, loving personality win you over. He's ready to bring happiness and lots of tail wags into his forever home. Wade can't wait to start his new life adventure with you!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
