Jack Russell Terrier
Nov 19, 2019
My name is Liam and I’m about 10-11 months old, and I weigh just over 11 lbs., so I am quite small. I don’t know what my lineage is, but I resemble a Parsons Jack Russell. I am neutered (mid-October), have all my shots, my recent heartworm test was negative and I am microchipped. And I have very expressive large brown eyes.
I can’t tell you much about my previous life as I was picked up by Toronto Animal Services as a stray and sheltered with them for about a month.
I am now being fostered by a retired senior couple (and just love them!) and am learning so much about a warm home, a comfortable bed, toys, good food, lots of fun exercise in the snow, and lots of love and attention.
I am a little shy and barky when I first meet up with folks I don’t know, but if you have a treat or two in your pocket, I soon come around and will share cuddles and kisses with you.
I am having to brush up on my housetraining as after being in a shelter for a month, it sort of went off the rails. But it is gradually coming back to me and I am getting better and better because my foster mum makes sure I go out very regularly to avoid any in-house accidents. And I do get it, that when I’m outside, I do what I need to do and foster mum patiently waits for me. I’m always rewarded with a treat for getting it right. I do sleep all through the night.
I am also working on some weight gain as I am too thin. I really enjoy my meal times and have been trying and liking veggies added to my food.
I’m good at leash walking, I come when called (there may be a treat in the offing), and I sit when asked to.
My best forever home would be without young children, cats or other dogs. You see, I will need to be with someone who has lots of time and patience for my age group as I will need lots of attention because I am still a puppy and have puppy needs, and my housetraining routine must continue so that I get it 100% right forever.
I do lots of playing with my toys and with my foster mum and dad and I do lots of power napping through the day as I’m still a puppy and need to recharge my batteries.
I travel well - no travel sickness, but I don’t really enjoy being in a crate in the car.
Foster mum is working on crate training with me using treats and toys and making it a fun game, but it’s not yet my favourite place to be.
I’m loving my time with my foster mum and dad, but I am looking forward to being with my forever home!
