Well, this is our third update since January when we adopted Rufus.

We’d like to let you know that we adopted another 5 month old puppy.

We’d like to introduce you to our new rescue. His name is Jax and he’s an Alaskan Husky.

Jax was being kept in a small crate for 20 hours a day in a small apartment in Toronto.

The owners, recognizing they were out of their league, were going to surrender him to the Toronto Humane Society so we agreed to foster him until a suitable new owner could be found.

We got him on Wednesday at 11am. By 3pm, after watching Rufus and Jax play, we decided to keep him.

He is an absolute beautiful dog. He’s very social with other animals but quite timid around new humans, however, we’ve seen a tremendous improvement with him over the past 4 days.

Hopefully, we can have him house trained in a short period of time.

Two pics attached. First one has Jax trying to share a bed with Rufus. It’s hard to see, but Rufus is in the picture!!

Second picture is after our 7km hike with a cooling off period in the pond. While Rufus loves to retrieve balls in the water, Jax prefers to splash around in the shallow end!!

Thank again for all your hard work with all the animals.

Darryl and Irit
