Jax's Page

This is our doodle pup “Cracker Jax”.  He was a Christmas present for our 2 ½ year old Golden Retriever, Shiloh.  Shiloh is a sweet dog with a great disposition and loves playing with other dogs.  He always seemed so lonely, so we decided to get him a playmate.

I searched the internet for Golden Retriever pups and stumbled across an ad for Golden Doodle puppies. I had seen pictures of doodles online and thought that they were adorable, so we decided that we would get one.

Jax came to us from the Knowles family in Ephrata, PA.  We communicated via e-mail and I picked him out from pictures of the 5 boys they had. We took the nearly 3 hour ride from our home in New Jersey to Pennsylvania a few days before Christmas.  He slept the entire ride home without so much as a whimper!

When we introduced him to Shiloh, he was very shy and stayed close to our side.  A few days later, he was all over him like he had known him all 8 weeks of his life!  Shiloh is so gentle with him, he lets him climb all over him, bite his ears and pull on his tail. He brings toys over to Jax to play tug of war, or makes him chase him around the table.  They are so cute together! Jax imitates Shiloh all the time.  Shiloh knows that in order to get a treat he has to sit and give us his paw, Jax will sit right next to him and do the same thing!

He is only 12 weeks old and he is just so smart and so cute!  I wish he didn't have to outgrow being a puppy, but I cant wait until he gets big, he is such a beautiful boy and we just love him!
