My new name is Joaquin.
I came to this here terrier foster home (some dogs come here to
"boot camp" but not me!) with the name -what else -
"Jack" And I do listen to Jack. Although supposedly I was a
stray. So either the people who brought me to the big crowded shelter
only said that I was "found" so they did not feel embarassed
at dumping me, or I am just so smart and learn a name in a few
Nothing wrong with my eyes,
just winking at you. I am
a JR of course -but other then being endlessly curious and playful, I
am not what you expect from a JR. To start: I am afraid of
heights! I am even afraid to jump from this chair that I have been
sitting on for the photos. But that does not keep me from climbing.
And I get my nose into everything. Especially WATER. I love
water. I jump into the bath tub asking to get a bath! I try to
dip into the water bowl. When sreing the river behind the house I
did not hesitate for a moment: jumped in and swam! For a minute, then
I climbed back onto land.
I do get my nose into every
thing. That includes climbing onto the desk here and
"taking" a pen that I then examine closely. I need a
lot of toys and bones to keep me from examining stuff here.
Still, I would be safest in a crate when nobody' s around to keep an
eye on me. And I really don't want to spend most of the day in a
crate. So I am looking for an owner who either works at/ from
home, or is retired and has time to be entertained by a dog like me. I
walk well on leash, and am not a "runner", but that has not
yet been tested. I am perfectly content to walk on a long leash.
Shelter said I had no
"issues" . True, I am very friendly and gentle with people
and also with other dogs.
I am 4 years, so just past the
juvenile stage. Healthy, ready to climb into your lap, and warm
your feet in cold winter nights!
