Ajax is part of our Recovery Adoption Dog (RAD) program and will come with a 1 month comprehensive training support program that has been curated to his needs. Adopters must be willing to fully participate in the training program and as such, the adoption fee once the training program has begun, is non-refundable. The training program is administered through our training partners at Pet-Intel.
Ajax is a handsome and clever dog. He’s a simple guy with only a few basic needs and a couple of idiosyncrasies. For starters, Ajax loves/needs to carry objects in his mouth. He’s become quite skilled at this and can now carry up to 4 toys at one time!This has become a vital part of Ajax’s training protocol. He uses this as a means to decompress and to create purpose in his everyday activities. He has become very helpful by collecting his dishes and carrying them to the kitchen.
Ajax is very good at having alone time in his crate only protesting from time-to-time with a passionate howlathon. Ajax is a smart boy and with a touch of a stubborn streak. He will quickly take advantage of inconsistencies in the rules and will need a home where there is fairness and consistency in the rules set out for him.
Ajax can be a real snuggler and enjoys closeness with his trusted people. Ajax is not a fan of sharing his space with other dogs. He becomes a macho-man with overt posturing and displays. He’s what is called ‘dog-reactive’. For this reason, he should ideally live in a somewhat rural or less populated dog environment as well as be the only pet in the home. Ajax will need space to explore and play without the added pressure of other dogs.
From time-to-time, Ajax can get a little over-excited and begins jumping and mouthing. This is just an indication he needs to chill out and take a break. Ajax is eager and friendly when meeting new people but should be encouraged to carry a toy until he’s calm enough to come and say ‘hello’.
Ajax is looking for a patient home with a good sense of humour. If you are interested in applying for this dream boat, apply at www.sitwitme.ca/dogs/ajax
