Jaxson, a handsome, friendly male weighing about 44 pounds, knows some commands. He’s a very playful dog and loves to get belly rubs, as you can see. He can walk on a leash very well and strut his good looks. An assertive dog, he can be a little picky about who he wants to be doggie friends with. He’s the best of both worlds, with the energy of a boxer and a big ol’ bucket of love like a pitty. Jaxson No. 29014
