Introducing Jax the Jackal
The newest Jackal is here! Jax the Jackal has finally found a place to call home.
Earlier this year, Jax booked a flight to Paris, but unknowingly picked Paris, TX. After searching for the Eiffel Tower for awhile, Jax began to realize he was far from home. He started to like the feel of the South, but had to find a rugby team to call his own.
Jax set off South. Eventually, Jax found himself in a hot place called Houston, TX, but he ran into a big, yellow cat who claimed the territory.
Next, Jax headed West making it to Austin, TX. This place was a step in the right direction, but everyone around town was just a little… weird. He decided to head back North, still searching for a rugby team to call his own. After a brief stop in Waco, TX and admiring the magnolias, he continued on.
Finally, Jax made it to Dallas, TX. While exploring, he happened upon a huge giant next to a ferris wheel welcoming him, “Howdy Folks!” Jax immediately knew it, this was home.
Welcome to the pack Jax!
Jax would love to come to your next event! Request an Appearance and learn more about Jax here.
