I was crushed and thought I would never find another Dane that I could have such a close bond with. I began surching with local rescues and filling out applications with a few in my area. I was to the interview process with one when I found Jax at a shelter about an hour away. I called them immediately and asked a number of questions about him, and asked for an application to fill out so I could hopefully adopt him. I couldn't go down the next day to get him due to work, and they couldn't "hold" him for me. I think I called the shelter 3 times to make sure nobody came to adopt him! 😂 The next day I got on the road in time to be the first person there when they opened. When they brought him out, he was this spindly, hyper boy that was ready to get the heck out of there. He jumped in the back of my car and made himself comfortable. When we got home he just checked everything out and crashed on my floor for a good nap, a deep rest he hasn't had in a long time. That night, when I was going to bed, I got under the covers and Jax jumped up on my bed, flopped down right next to me, rested his head on my chest and wrapped his paw around me. I nearly started bawling. From the traumatic loss of Opie and feeling one of the greatest losses ever, to such an instant bond with this trusting soul is more than I could have ever asked for. To this day I can't imagine my life without him. He is my heart dog, my protector, my snuggle bug, I love him! I always ask him "Who rescued who?" ________________________________ If you're looking to find your own rescue, @barkbuddy helps you find adoptable dogs in your area: BarkBuddy.com
