Hunter is 9 years old. The only reason he needs a new home is due to a family member's upcoming bone marrow transplant. The doctor advised that the patient cannot be around animals during her recovery.
This little man is SMART and very healthy! He is housebroken, likes to ride the car, is fine with kids who are nine plus years old and loves his daily four mile walk. He's great on a leash!
Hunter has been living with a wonderful Border Collie and they get along great! Structured introductions to new dogs would be important. Hunter's tendency is to bark at new people and dogs, however, he settles right down. He cannot be with any cats and he does need secure fencing. When the neighborhood cats try to taunt Hunter, he tries to get out. Although not utilized anymore, Hunter is familiar with a crate. He knows not to jump on furniture, but with his little Terrier personality, he does sneak onto his favorite comfy chair when no one is there.
