Montreal SPCA: Jax is looking for a family for life!


Each week, the Salut Bonjour team highlights adorable animals, all rescued by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Montreal (SPCA). These adorable little beasts have one thing in common: they are looking for a family, capable of providing them with the appropriate care and offering them love at will.

For more than 150 years, the mission of the Montreal SPCA has been to protect animals against negligence, abuse and exploitation, to represent their interests and ensure their well-being, to promote public awareness and sensitivity to regard to them.

On average, cats have to wait 7 days and dogs 10 days before being welcomed by a new family. If a large majority of them find a home quickly, this is not the case for all. Some, because of their age, race or temperament, are forced to stay longer.

The organization does not discriminate: in addition to four-legged animals, it receives birds, rats, turtles or rodents. This week, the Montreal SPCA is looking for a new family for this adorable animal!

Jax is looking for company to go for a walk

Jax, an adorable 6-year-old dog with an old soul, is waiting for an adoptive family. Going for a walk is clearly his favorite activity. Indeed, although he walks quietly on a leash, he rushes to the door all excited when it’s time to go outside! If you walk him when the weather is windy, he faces the wind, his ears flapping, and closes his eyes… He’s in heaven! Along with peaceful hikes, Jax also likes to sunbathe, as evidenced by the photo below.


As this nice pooch adores humans, he will eagerly seek your caresses and your attention. Note, however, that Jax is anxious and tends to scream when alone; living in an apartment is therefore not recommended for him.


Endowed with a (very) good appetite, Jax has become chubby over time. Besides, climbing stairs is a challenge for him. He is therefore looking for a family that will help him lose weight by taking him for walks regularly, putting him on a diet and offering him games or activities, such as treasure hunts, that will stimulate his nose (he loves to sniff the ground ).


Although Jax is an adult, he still has things to learn (like sharing his toys). That’s why he’s looking for a family whose members are over 16 and who can teach him good manners using positive reinforcement.
