Dot and Tod: Rat Terrier and Jack Russel mix pups

Dot Christmas Day

Dot Christmas Day

Dot and Tod are two adorable, active, affectionate four month old puppies.
Dot has mostly a black face while Tod has white on his face.
Dot is a white and black, Tod is a tri.



In this rare case, we actually know who the parents are.
Both of their parents are also Rat Terrier and Jack  Russel mixes and weigh about 24 pounds.
These pups ended up in our program because they were the last of a large litter and the owners could not find homes for them.
As is our custom, we did pay to have their mom spayed because, honestly, there are too many dogs and puppies in our local shelters!

Back to Dot and Tod.
Both puppies are super sweet and smart.
They are also very active!

They jump up on us a lot and we are working with them on that.
Both of them, but especially Dot, love to be in laps.

Both pups are good with dogs and fine with cats but may chase a cat to play.
However, both pups are easily persuaded to move onto another activity as they are both a bit on the wimpy side.

The pups stay with us outside and come when called.  They are really close to being house trained!
If there are children in the family a fenced in yard is required.
They are not leash trained at all and, being puppies, are quite capable of chewing furniture, computer wires, children’s stuffed toys, etc.
Both, as with all puppies, need to be watched when loose.
They share a wire dog crate at night but also are put in their own crate a few hours every day so they start getting use to that.

They are  available for adoption.  If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.  Click here for adoption application
