Puppies Sound Good: Meet Jax

On this month’s “Puppies Sound Good,” we meet 5-month-old Jax and Austin Carter talks with Humane Society of Calloway County’s Kathy Hodge about upcoming Doggie Day Spas and the community pet calendar.


The playful and inquisitive Jax greeted everyone at the station for kisses. Hodge says he loves toys and is good at entertaining himself. He even brought a stick up to the station to play with during his interview. The 15 pound pup is white with brindle spots around his eyes and tail. Hodge says Jax seems to be a terrier mix and shouldn’t grow to weigh more than 30 pounds.

Jax is comfortable around animals and people and even knows a few commands, like “sit.” Hodge says he is doing well with crate training and he can stay all night in his crate with little whining. She adds that he has a “sweet, cute” personality and is well-suited for household living. See Jax’s adoption profile at forthepets.org.


MSUAnimal Health Technology/Pre-veterinary Club hosts a Doggie Day Spa and Pet ID Clinic this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Carman Animal Health Center.

And the deadline to submit photos to the Humane Society of Calloway County’s community pet calendar is September 30. It is $25 for the first photo submission and $10 for each following photo. Those who submit photos will also receive a copy of the calendar.
