found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Jack is a 2 year old Jack Russell-Chihuahua mix. Jack was found walking up the middle of Little Tujunga Road in the San Angeles National Forest with another stray dog (Daniels) without tags, collar or chip. He was underweight and stressed and, from his behavior, he might have been living in the wild for most of his life. It took him a while, but he is now 99% housebroken and loves people. He wants nothing more than to curl up next to a person and feel the warmth and love and security of being part of a family. He usually sleeps in a small crate at night but sometimes I let him curl up with the other dogs on the bed and he’s in heaven. He likes his crate and when he’s chilling, he’ll sometimes hang out in it, with the door open. He doesn’t mind when I put him in there for a time out. He doesn’t bark excessively though, if the other dogs do start a barking jag, he’ll join in. He gets along fairly well with other dogs (except for his old travelling buddy, Daniels… there appears to be some deep rooted competition going on there) but sometimes he gets a little snarly with other dogs, but he’s learning that this is not appropriate behavior. He got mauled by another dog, but it doesn’t seem to have affected him much; he got along fine with his attacker afterwards. He’s good on off-leash hikes, staying fairly close and doubling back to check in. He starting to enjoy leash walks, but at first the whole leash-thing freaked him out. He does not get separation anxiety and will keep himself entertained when alone. He likes toys that he can shred or chew on, so keep your shoes out of his reach. I think he’d be good as an only dog so that he doesn’t have to compete for a human’s attention. He loves being picked up and carried and will snuggle as close to your face as you will let him. He is ready for his forever home.
He weighs about 18 pounds and is fixed, chipped and has had his shots for DA2PP/FVRCP, Rabbies, and Bordetella.
