HTZ Houndz: Adoptable Dog of the Week - Ajax


Hey HTZ Nation, Jonathon back with an extra special dog this week. It's pretty easy to get attached to a dog when you're involved with animal rescue. However, no dog and their story have made an impact like this week's adoptable pet. From Niagara Dog Rescue, meet Ajax.

Ajax is a 7 year old Australian Shepherd Mix who has come a long way while in the care of Niagara Dog Rescue. Abandoned in the parking lot of a vet office with large bladder stones, NDR raised the money to save Ajax. Since then, he has made incredible strides with his training and is looking to keep that going in foster care. Better yet, the time is now for Ajax to find his forever home.

The ideal home for this handsome fluff ball will have no other dogs, cats or kids. He does okay with calm dogs after slow introductions, but it is best Ajax is on his own. Ajax prefers a quiet country home rather than busy city life. A single female or single male home is best for Ajax, he is not the type of dog you can just bring around to meet all of your friends and family.  However, an owner who sets boundaries will be well respected by Ajax and he will blossom into the sweet boy NDR fosters, trainers and volunteers have come to know him as. How sweet is he? I mean, look at this face!



Ajax loves the water and loves his adventures to the beach. He is going to make an amazing companion for someone, we just need to find that right someone. If you'd like to know more about Ajax, you can check out a full up to date profile on his training and foster care here.

After you successfully adopt Ajax, you can enjoy 15% off your first purchase in store at Vansickle Pet Valu or Lundy's Lane Pet Valu, as well as a free bag of dog food and free pet bath.

Please share his story and social media with friends so this guy doesnt have to wait any longer to get back into a loving home forever. As always, remember, no one can do everything but everyone can do something.
