STAFFORD – The Stafford Township Animal Control Department offered this update on Jax, Boxer/Rottweiler mix dog who ran from an accident scene by the Causeway Bridge on Route 72 Monday.
“Jax has been seen the last two nights at the same bait station set by Animal Control. Thankfully, he has been eating and drinking water, and slept on his owners clothes that have been set. Jax is establishing a routine as we had anticipated. The Stafford Twp. Animal Control Department in conjunction with Mamas Gonna rescue have been monitoring Jax from afar as to not startle him. We continue to ask that the public cooperation and refrain from the trail as to keep the disturbance and noise to a minimum. We are very hopeful that we will be able to secure him before the weekend,” the Department said via social media Thursday night.
The Department also thanked Hannlon’s K-9 search and rescue for bringing the search dog “Doug” out on Monday to assist with the initial search.
