KIMBERLY GOLDSWORTH WITH JAX
BREED: WHIPPE T/HOUND CIT Y: MILL VALLE Y
WHERE DID YOU MEET? I met Jax at the Bay Area Pet Fair in San Rafael. I saw him cowering under a table at the Family Dog Rescue booth, and for some
reason I knew he had to be mine. FAVORI TE SNACK? Jax will immediately start licking his lips upon hearing “Greenies,” though recently he has learned to
come running at the sound of a cheese slice being unwrapped. FAVORI TE PARK/ TRAIL? Jax’s favorite place on earth is the Sausalito Dog Park, where he can safely
run off a leash, explore and play with all his friends. DOES HE SLEEP IN YOUR BED? Yep. Since day one he has not only slept in my bed with me, but he also insists on
sleeping under the covers — and must be touching me at all times. He has also taken over one of the big chairs in the living room, where he perches atop what
we call his “nest” (since he sinks into it) while looking outside. THE ORIGIN OF HIS NAME. Jax was transferred from the Kauai Humane Society, which originally
named him. As is very prevalent on the island, Jax was raised to be a boar hunter — wherein dogs are often starved and abused as incentive to get them to
hunt. If they’re not good at hunting, they’re either abandoned, killed or dumped at the shelter. Jax — a lover, not a fighter — was one of the lucky ones who
was dumped at KHS. He was very shy and shut down and at risk of not getting adopted, so some wonderful people had him transferred to San Francisco.
SOME THING UNIQUE ABOU T HIM. Jax is a champion at awk ward sitting, much to the delight of his Instagram fans jax.the.hound.
