Jax was just another abandoned dog when she was first found at the Avalon Dog Park. She was timid and scared, with only a couple of basic commands in her vocabulary. But little did anyone know, this furry ball of fluff would soon blossom into a confident and loving companion, thanks to the patience and love of her new owners.
Jax’s new owners talked to her foster family. It was the foster family who gave her a bath and said there bathroom had never seen so much water- on the walls and ceiling. When Sarah, gave her a bath we knew what they went thru! Now she will go into the bathroom and sit by the shower if she wants a bath. Less stress for her and Sarah!
Despite Jax’s initial fear of water, her new owner, Sarah, was determined to help her overcome her fears and build trust. Sarah took things slow and introduced Jax to water gradually, always making sure she was comfortable and relaxed. Over time, Jax’s fear of water diminished, and she even began to place both paws on the bathtub, although she still wouldn’t jump in.
Sarah’s dedication and patience paid off, as Jax slowly became more and more confident in her new surroundings. She learned new commands and began to develop her own personality. Today, Jax is a happy and beloved member of Sarah’s family, who brings joy and laughter wherever she goes.
Jax’s story is a testament to the transformative power of love and patience. Despite her traumatic past, she was able to heal and blossom into a confident and affectionate companion. If you’re considering adding a dog to your family, remember that rescue dogs, like Jax, have just as much love to give as any other dog and often just need a little extra patience and understanding to reach their full potential.
So here’s to Jax, the rescue dog who went from being scared and alone, to a cherished member of a loving family. May her story inspire others to open their hearts and homes to dogs in need.
Next time you consider getting a pet follow in the footsteps of Sarah and Jax
