Josh is an 9-month-old Jack Russell Terrier / Border Collie mix who was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Houston! Josh is very affectionate and playful and loves quality time with his humans. He's an energetic boy who would love to join an active family who will help him get the physical stimulation he needs. He came to us very much still a puppy at heart, but his fosters have diligently been working on his training and his manners are improving! He is intelligent and very treat-motivated, so has picked up on commands very quickly. An owner who is firm and consistent with Josh's continued training will go a long way with this sweet boy! Josh has done well with introductions to all shapes and sizes of people.
Foster Update: Josh is doing absolutely great. He is very lovable and trusting - he loves human companionship. He likes to communicate with us with adorable "almost barks". While we are working with him on his vocalizing, this is apart of his ongoing training and he needs a home who isn't bothered by it.
His training has come a long way! His treat motivation is a key player in this progress - it is a catch 22, however, because Josh will not just chew treats. He's very loving, highly energetic and playful. He gets along great with other dogs - he is still learning his boundaries and it sometimes takes an annoyed growl from the other dog to put him in his place. His biggest need for training is in regards to his leash-reactivity - he will bark and pull towards other dogs, though he does respond to a stern 'sit' command.
