Lucky, Baxter and Clover: Little Terrier pups

baxter_clover_lucky_diamond_feb_6_2017psLucky, Baxter and Clover are siblings.
They are said to be Jack Russel Terrier and Rat Terrier mixes.
Born April 17th, 2016, they are just about 8 months at this time.
These three were surrendered to a local animal shelter by their owner.
I would guess they are left over puppies that were not sold.
Lucky is tan and white and a boy.
Baxter is black with white and tan and also a boy.
Clover is tannish red and white and a girl.

They all weigh in about 10 pounds each.
All three eat and eat but are still on the bony side but I suspect as they get older they will fill out.

The came with no manners and all three have required quite a bit of work in terms of building self-confidence, house manners and house training.  None of them get A’s, maybe Clover gets a B and her brothers get C’s.

Baxter loves to chase my dog CiCi.  And Baxter can run like the wind and he does it while barking.baxter_jan_24_2017ps
When playing Baxter loves to bark and bark.  He will need some work on not barking when playing with other dogs.
He is not so bad in the house but if one barks all three pups have to bark too.  It’s like they can not not bark.
Baxter is the most outgoing of the three.

lucky_jan_22_2017psLucky thinks he is a mountain goat and climbs up on everything.
He has gotten out of every single fence from wooden to chain link to square fencing.
He either goes up and over and squirms through. He has no regard for his body when trying to get out.
We have tried crating him by himself and thus far with no luck.  He eats the crates.
I know, who would think a 10 pound dog could do this?

Clover is timid to a fault but she is an extreme cuddle bug.IMG_1036ps
Her most favorite thing to do is climb in a lap.
She adores my husband and cuddles with him the minute he sits down, but that is not all that often.
She will need someone to continue work with building her self-confidence.

I have been working on a recall with all three.
I take them outside and throw the ball for my dog to catch.
Then I call them all as she is coming back and give them a treat.

They have been good about coming back and staying with me which is good as I do not have fencing in on our property but I have the advantage in that it is cold and there has been snow so the pups are pretty eager to come back in.

I have fenced in areas but they get out of them, especially Lucky.
I take them out every 2-3 hours for a potty call.  They are now going for up to 4 days at a time with no accidents.

We are working on taking a treat nice, not barking when you are in a crate just because your foster mom is nearby, and the house breaking and recall.

They love curling up together, with other dogs who will let them and the LOVE our bed.
We let them cuddle with us until lights off, then the boys go into one crate and the girl has her own crate.
