found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and purebred.
He came to his us with a habit of barking when people arrived (especially at doorbells), but has reduced that a lot – he has shown that he is quite trainable, eager to please and appreciates leadership. JRTs don’t like to be alone, so Bumper should not be left at home all day while his owner is at work (he has people around pretty much day and night in his foster home). He understands that he can’t always go along too, and stays home alone well for short periods. He does not chew on anything other than his toys. He does not like to be left in a car and has not been crate trained. Like any JRT, he needs his daily exercise; but he is otherwise happy to just relax or take a nap. About 14 lbs, he’s short-haired and long legged, in excellent physical shape.
He did have some bad treatment before, but since being in his foster home, he has become far more social with people and other dogs (rumored that he nipped at times, but has only done that once while in his foster home). Bumper was afraid of the vacuum, but now trusts that it won’t attack him; still working on trusting the garden hose. Skiddish on city sidewalks at first, he is much more comfortable and no longer barks at trucks, buses or motorcycles. He’s working on not pulling the leash when he goes for a walk to the park (he doesn’t pull on the trip back home or when just going around the block). He can sleep on his owner’s bed or in his own bed, he’s OK either way.
Bumper has been moved a couple times in his life (his original owner passed away) and treated badly at some point, now he wants to find a forever, loving home where he’ll be special. Is that yours?
