Rita may belong in the short legged department but this pup earns first place in the big heart category!
Sweet, affectionate pup that desires to be a lap dog. She can get in your chair faster then you can so that when you go to lean back she there she is. Then she squirms her way to the front to curl into your lap.
But, she is a puppy too. She enjoys running and playing and fussing with other dogs over rawhides and toys.
Sometimes she will decide all the rawhides are hers and walk around with this low guttural growl like she is some big dog. Silly girl. She stops when we tell her too and she is, in general very good. But, for the moment, she is competing against a couple large breed five month old puppies who can be rather obnoxious.
We are guessing she is a Jack Russel Mix. She is black and white and rather long with short legs.
She is very interested in chasing critters that scamper in the woods so she has stayed on leash.
I think a fenced in yard would be nice for her.
She is a leg weaver so needs a home with steadfast surefooted adults.
I would think children, the school age kind, would be fine.
She has a great temperament – no issues that we have seen.
This little girl will be some lucky person’s next heart dog.
Please note that adopters will be expected to participate in a dog obedience class.
There are many reasons why taking your new puppy to a dog class is a good thing:
encourage bonding, increase pups self-esteem, learn new things or new ways of teaching those old things, meet new people who love dogs too, have resources to help solve those doggy behaviors we don’t want, and maybe, just maybe, get involved in the world of doggy sports because today, there is a multitude of doggy sports for everyone!
Here are a few: Rally obedience, agility, musical freestyle, lure coursing, barn hunt, hose work, conformation, herding. Your wallet may be lighter when you go out and compete but your life will be fuller!
Let us know if you need help finding a dog obedience class in your area.
Local dog obedience clubs are a good place to look!
