About Me

Lovingly sponsored by Meghan and Jeff Bohrer in honor of Wilma their lab pit-mix, and in memory of her best Berner pal, Luigi

This lovable odd-couple have been together since they were puppies. Family relocation such that is was really impossible to bring their dogs, have them in our care. They were loved and well taken care of, as attested to by our vet. She says they are in top form and perfect weight so those that think that Jaxx should be beefier – it is not good for his stature or overall health.

Roxy is a lab/heeler mix with an equal balance of both breeds. She is super sweet and cuddly with that lab-happy personality and tail! She is also crown control which is where the heeler kicks in. She just can’t help herself and will break up any group play. That is, unless she is distracted by a ball. Compact and athletic she will play ball non-stop. She loves the beach and swimming; cuddling is her next favorite sport.

Jaxx is a Bernese Mountain Dog. Typically berners are a needy bunch, super Velcro. Jaxx is not. He is shy at first meeting and looks to Roxy for guidance. We were told he can be wary of men, and upon entering his foster home he kept a wide berth from his foster dad but has since warmed up and now they are pals. The more immediate connection was with his foster mom. Tall and athletic, Jaxx still has a lot of ‘puppy’ in him. One of the resident pups has been enticing him to play.

Jaxx discovering dinosaurs and playing keep-away … so much for the towel!

Jaxx and Penny are having a romp. Roxy is distracted somewhere else with a ball, otherwise she would be the party police and be breaking up these shenanigans!

Jaxx loves to run up and down the beach with Roxy and although not a swimmer, will go into the water up to his belly.

Both dogs are housetrained, good on leash – especially walking together and in pack walks with their foster siblings. They have great house manners if you don’t mind an occasional tornado ripping through the home; ride great in the car and hop right in the back of an SUV, lay down ready to go. Neither have shown no resource guarding or aggression whatsoever. They have been ‘brewery tested’ and were very well-behaved.

My Ideal Home

Jaxx and Roxy are looking for a home that will keep them together and understand the needs of each individually and the dynamics as a pair. They are active dogs and need the opportunity to run and stretch their legs as they are accustomed. We will not place them in a home with cats or a home where young/small children reside in the home. They do not have that family history. Dog savvy teens would be okay. Roxy’s tendency to herd anything (group of young kids not excluded) may be misconstrued, and Jaxx’s size could lead to inadvertent kid-bowling.

Roxy needs someone who understands the heeler breed, or at least is willing to learn. Whenever there is any excitement around at the park, beach, or your home, Roxy will enter with her “break it up, break it up, move along” action. Sometimes there are growls as she is a boss, but never overt reactivity or aggression. She has been great at the park and beach, and around all other dogs she has met.

Want to Adopt me?

If you think your family can provide a great home for this pair, contact rescue.ranger525@gmail.com and tell us all about you and the life you can provide for this amazing pair.

All interested parties must have completed the application process, which includes a home visit by one of our wonderful volunteers, to be considered as Jaxx and Roxy’s pack. We are sure there will be questions as to if we would consider splitting them up and that answer would be, only if in the best interest of the dogs. Each would do well if placed in a household with appropriate individual dynamics but our first family choice will be those willing to adopt the pair and give them a great forever life.
