Recent update from Jax's foster:

Jax is timid but very, very sweet. He isn't a huge cuddler, but just last night, he jumped onto my lap on the couch, and started rolling around and groaning (he groans when he's happy. or mad. or annoyed. So, pretty much all the time) trying to get me to cuddle him. It was incredible because he hasn't done that at all! Every time I would stop petting him, he would paw me, or roll into me and demand pets. He ended up falling asleep in my lap.

Jax knows sit, lay down, roll over, shake (will shake both right and left), and "out of the kitchen". We have worked on setting boundaries in the house since he will try to protect the fridge. He doesn't play with toys a lot, but when he gets hyper and excited, he will throw his stuffed animals around, rub his face on everything, roll-over and groan/howl. I have been trying to use puzzle toys for him when he is in his crate only and he seems to enjoy them. He is VERY cheese driven. He's pretty picky about dog treats, but he will eat the soft ones that are meat-based. 

He walks well on the leash. He will start out pulling since he's excited but tends to calm down after ten minutes or so. He also LOVES car rides, he is happy to go anywhere at all in the car.

He has always been great with other dogs, as long as they are introduced properly. Our friends bring dogs over and he is respectful of their space and plays really well. He seems scared of cats and will steer clear of them, he has let our cat cuddle him a couple of times though.

Jax is very scared of the crate with the door shut, which is unfortunate because we do have to leave him in there if we have to leave him home alone. He does love to sleep in his crate on his own terms and also eats in there (all with the door open). I highly suggest wherever he goes, that he has a crate or anyplace that is 100% his bed and a nice, big comfy safe space. I think that has really helped him to feel comfortable. 

He seems to be scared of our bedroom and a little bit afraid of the dark. He gets anxious when we turn the lights off & head to bed. He chooses to sleep outside of our bedroom door (we leave it open for him), in his crate, or on the couch. He has only recently started coming into the bedroom willingly, in the morning. Also, he'll only come in if I am in there, he won't come into the room for anyone else.

The strange thing is that he's fine if he's left in the car at all. We have been taking him to a lot of places because he won't get nervous in the car at all. There have been a couple of times that he whined after we left the car, but if you take him on a small walk before getting in the car, he's perfectly content.

He will definitely need someone who has the patience, time, and experience to work with him on this. I imagine that he would be a dream to have on a farm or a house that has a large fenced space. He LOVES to be outside and would prefer to be outside most of the day until he decides to whine at the door to get back inside.

Jax barks sometimes, mostly when another dog starts barking, but he certainly whines quite a bit! Whining is apparently his love language. He's very vocal, if he wants anything at all, he will quietly sit there and whine. Most of the time, he wants a walk, so he'll certainly demand it!
