I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Jack is a tan Terrier mix who was abandoned at the shelter by his owner along with his sister Jill. He weighs 20 lbs and is about 1 1/2 - 2 years old. Jack has medium energy and will even be puppy-like at times. He loves people, snuggles, belly rubs and toys! He is crate trained and gets along fine with other dogs. He is fearful of men but will warm up to them on his own terms by ignoring him and let him approach when ready. He loves his crate and exhibits some separation anxiety when left alone outside his crate. He is fine with cats. He competes for affection when other dogs are around but not in an aggressive way. He was quite scared when we first got him but he settled down quickly. He is a very chill dog. Jack He will bark if someone is at the door, but he quiets down quickly. His temporary foster mom has had workmen in her home with drills, vacuum cleaners etc. and it didn't spook him a bit. He whines a little when left alone but settles himself down quickly and he does not resource guard. He does get a little territorial if you get by his crate, so we suggest a home with no small children. Jack is very food motivated so he should be a great candidate for easy training. He is very, very sweet and loves giving kisses. He's a fast learner and is already picking up SIT. Here is what Jack's foster says about him: Jack now walks very well on a leash. He is medium to high energy and would enjoy being around children who would play with him. He is great with other dogs, cats, older children. He seems to like chewable toys such as the Nylabone. I have taken him to outdoor cafes and on hikes and he is great! Everyone mentions how well behaved he is. He does seem to be very attached to me, so when I hand him over to someone else (like at the fairs) he gets anxious. He had one incident with Michelle. While I was away, he was in his crate and he refused to leave his crate and showed it by growling and attempting to nip. No such behavior has been seen in my presence and I don't know if it was because it was his crate or his home he was guarding. My housekeeper has come to my home while I'm away and he has been fine with her, but he knows her well enough now. He howls with the sound of sirens (so cute!!).Also, he now knows "go to bed" and he goes to his crate, but seems to think "stay" means "come here" lol.
