Prince is a 6mo old blonde, wire-hair Jack Russell Terrier puppy that we found running in traffic during rush hour. It's a true miracle he wasn't run over, especially since he was barely 4 pounds at the time! This little guy has a guardian angel or two for sure. We tried to find his owners, but with no luck. So we had the little fellow neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. He's doing wonderfully well with basic puppy training (pottie training, leash training, voice commands, don't chase the kitties, etc). He figured out the doggie door all by himself, and he fetches a tennis ball perfectly 10 out of 10 times. He can even outrun the tennis ball! Here are a couple more entertaining youtube video clips of him playing with his toys:
Prince is a confident and classic JRT -- extremely smart and high energy 24/7. He is going to need a family that's fully interactive with him and won't just leave him in the yard to do his own thing. That's how puppies become destructive and then find themselves sitting at the dog pound wondering what they did wrong. He will need an experienced owner/family to continue teaching him good habits. He can be food aggressive and bossy with other pets, but responds very well to positive, encouraging correction. Since he is still in the puppy stage and sees everything as a chew toy, we will not place him in a home with small children.
