Roger's Story...

** PLEASE READ HIS DESCRIPTION BEFORE CALLING/APPLYING! **

His super cute looks are deceiving!

Roger is a "project dog"! Which means he will need on-going training and is ONLY available to an SF Bay Area experienced, sport dog home.

Roger is a 3 year old, 10lb Australian Terrier/Jack Russell mix, and this guy is ALL terrier!! (His personality is probably closest to that of a Jack Russell) He loves to play with other small dogs, is good with cats (although sometimes he wants to play with them if they run). He LOVES to play (can’t say this enough), and he is very high energy. He has learned a handful of tricks, and been in NADAC Agility classes (for almost 2 years) and recently started in Flyball, and would love to go to a home that can continue dog sports with him, and keep him very active, both mentally and physically. His amazing agility instructor has offered 50% off the first course for Roger to continue Agility classes when adopted. He’s like the energizer bunny, and he is one of the smartest dogs we have ever met, scary smart! He does also love to snuggle with his person and give kisses. He’s crate-trained and housebroken. His only issue (besides his extremely high energy and intelligence level) is *fear aggression toward all strangers* (will bite if a stranger approaches, reaches their hand for/toward him, or spooks him), but with lots of patience, managing, training (counter conditioning), and carefully monitored socialization, especially since he’s still pretty young, we hope his fear will decrease, but it may never go completely away, so you can never let your guard down with him. He has gotten a LOT better in his foster home over the last couple years, but will need someone to continue the right kind of training with him. He does seem to warm up much faster to young women than to older people or men. This is why he’d do best in a home with NO children and with someone experienced with terrier or high energy breeds (like herding dogs) and near-professional dog behavior experience. Once you give this dog a chance, you will fall in love! He’s really such an absolutely brilliant dog, the life of the party!

Roger is neutered, up to date on his shots, microchipped, and will come with a collar, harness, leash, and bag of food!
