Stax loves to meet new people, especially if they have food. He is eager to please and very food motivated, and after some treats and a walk, he is a very friendly guy. Stax walks nicely on a harness and leash and has gone through Canine Good Citizen training in the past. He loves being with his special person and enjoys going for long hikes. He really wants to be an outdoor adventure dog. Stax is not comfortable at big events with lots of people, commotion and noise. He prefers more private events or off-the-beaten-path adventures.
Born in 2016, Stax is a true hound with his nose and sometimes with his voice. He loves to do nose work (a fun search and scenting sport) and agility. He is also learning basic training cues at the Sanctuary. He is currently living with a shy female with whom he loves to play and wrestle. Shy dogs are his favorite, because he seems to do best with those who ignore him at first, then want to engage over time. He lived with a cat in a previous home and has passed cat test at Sanctuary, but he will chase outdoor cats and lizards.
