Jaxon is a handsome patterned sable with a beautiful coat and good pigment. He has a strong broad head with correct planes, masculine features and expressive face. Jaxon is a medium-large male at a lean, but very solid 85lbs. Athletic in build, well-muscled and tall; standing 26.5 inches at the shoulder giving an overall dry look of correct proportions and sound confirmation.
Jaxon has the hard to find balance of both prey and defense drives without being over the top. He is not "sleeve happy" and can easily transition from working between prey and defense. He is a powerful dog and knows how to use his weight to his advantage to fight with the decoy. He has strong nerves and doesn't break down under pressure. Readily engages the decoy in car jacks and surprise scenarios. Very easy to handle and eager please making for a very biddable partner. Versatile, willing to work in any venue with high energy and enthusiasm.He is has been active in Agility, Dock Diving and Lure Coursing. Truly a 'do it all' kind of dog.
Clear headed with a pronounced on/off switch making him an excellent working dog as well as a stable companion. Naturally amiable in temperament, he is not super dominant but no pushover either. Completely confident and reliable where ever we go and has proven to be a good ambassador for the breed time and time again. Great with people and other animals. Jaxon has an incredibly sweet, laid back personality he is incredibly easy to live with in the home and content to lay at my feet when the day is done.
