Drax is available ( Updated 11-29-2022 )
Drax is a "Super Hero" puppy born to a mom that was rescued from a wilderness area in Stockton, California. All of the puppies have names from either the "Avengers" or "Marvel".
Drax and his brothers Hawkeye, Falcon, and Rocket moved from Stockton to Orange County into a foster home with multiple dogs. They fit right in and made themselves at home.
Drax was the runt of the litter so he can be a little pushy with the other puppies to get what he wants. He is very very smart but also super sweet! He has lots of energy and loves to play. He can be a little cautious at first with people.
Drax and the other pups spent their first weeks in a condo and when Drax went to his new foster home, he sprinted into their yard and now prefers to be outside in the fresh air and grass than inside.
Drax would be amazing at some type of agility/scent training work because he is so intelligent. He would do great as a solo dog or in a multi dog house and will thrive with training.
Some background on the "Super Hero" litter: The mom - Nala - is a full German Shepherd. We don't know what the father was but was most likely another GSD or a similar large breed dog. Nala followed her rescuer as she was hiking in a wilderness area and eventually trusted her enough to go home with her. After her rescue, Nala gave birth to a litter of 8 puppies in the rescuers home. The pups were born on August 19th.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
