Hi, my name is CRICKET, but I’m not an insect – I’m a 7-8 year-old Jack Russell/Toy Fox Terrier-mix. At least that’s what I look like, but it is just a guess. Before Colorado Canine Rescue (a non-profit) brought me to the Denver area, I was in a shelter in Houston TX, so little is known about me. It seems that I hadn’t gotten much love or care; I was in pretty bad shape. My skin was awful and I had lost most of my hair – probably from a severe allergic reaction to fleas. But you wouldn’t know it to look at me now! It’s taken a little while, but my skin is healed and my hair is almost all grown back. I feel like a new dog!
When I came to Foster Mom’s, I wasn’t comfortable being held or petted, but that has changed and now I like her attention! In fact, even though I get along just fine with other dogs, I wouldn’t mind being an only dog because then I would have all the attention to myself. As for cats, I’ve barked a little at Foster Mom’s, but that was just to show them who is boss. A yard might be nice, because I enjoy being outside. I even have some really cool cover-ups to protect me from too much sun – and I like being dressed up. I am crate-trained, but I like it when Foster Mom lets me snuggle with her in her bed. I am house-trained, too, but there might be an accident or two while I am getting used to my forever home.
Loud noises and voices make me anxious, so a family with young kids likely wouldn’t be good – but someone calm and loving who wants a quiet companion would be just right for me! Do you think you might be that calm, loving person? Please go on-line right now to fill out an adoption application atwww.coloradocaninerescue.org. CCR is asking a $100.00 adoption donation for me, which is such a deal because I am spayed, vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped, and I just had a dental! Remember, though, the Rescue can’t guarantee my breed composition or my age – but you won’t care about that once you meet me!
