Little Bit was born 11 February, 2014, the son of a Jack Russell (Mom) and a Boston Terrier (Dad). Both were very loving animals.
Lil’ Bit is very playful. He loves with his mom (the Jack Russell), and playing chase with her. He also enjoys playing with his foster’s grandkids, ages 3 and 8. He learned to 'sit' and be still for a treat. Before being taught to sit for his treat, he would literally steal a treat out of his mother’s mouth. But he’s now learned to sit very still, let his Mom eat her treat… and wait to be given his. Despite his enthusiasm for food and treats, he’s never attempted or threatened to bite. I feed the dogs and he is not aggressive around his food.
Little Bit DOES always wants to be the center of attention. He has medium to big paws and does not realize he is not the same little pup that would fit into your palm two+ years ago. He's a smart boy who quickly learned the rules of where to potty, and loves being with another dog to play. Follows his foster around the house and plops down by her feel whenever she sits.
He loves to play with his toys, or his foster’s grandkids toys. As a puppy he chewed things but has learned to confine his chewing to 'chew toys'! Little Bit lives with a small, older female Chihuahua, but she likes no one and no other dogs. When he tries to play with her and she bites his nose (she only has a couple of teeth left), he'll look at her as if she's just a confusing playmate. He is so curious when out on walks.
If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting!
'This handsome dog is a participant in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so their ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.'
