Jax is being raised and trained to provide life-changing independence to someone with a physical disability other than visual impairment or to work with a professional such as a teacher, psychologist or victim services worker to help support a healthy community.

In August, 2023, Jax took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training where he’ll learn the skills needed to support his future partner.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Jax’s village and receive monthly updates about him — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Jax today.
