Oz (Oswald) is a 9 year old Jack Russell Terrier born on May 9th, 2007 and I brought him home in July of 2007. He was neutered at 16 weeks and is up to date on all vaccines and dental cleanings. Oz is an active patient at the Federal Way Banfield Hospital since July of 2007. He's my first baby and is as sweet as they come. He's not the typical Jack, he's not yappy and doesn't bark at the door or the door bell or people passing by. He loves to cuddle (he thinks he's a lap dog) and be right next to his human but he doesn't really care for other animals. Oz loves attention from people more than animals but tends to keep his distance from small children (walking age to 4 years old). Oz doesn't have one aggressive bone in his body and tends to keep to himself at dog parks. Off leash time outside is one of his favorite times as he LOVES to run and outrun other dogs up for the challenge (I've not seen a single dog run faster than Oz in the 9 years I've been with him). During the summer months, when he's not running, he also loves to sunbathe and take outdoor naps. Oz really is an all weather dog! Oz has dry skin so he is fed high fat content food: Blue Buffalo limited ingredient grain free Turkey and Potato.
I would love to see Oz placed in a home with an active single adult or couple with either no children or children older than 8 years. He loves to be outdoors, I've taken him hiking through Snoqualmie, jogging up to 8 miles at a time, and walking along the waterfront to catch some sun.
