Are you right for Jacko?

Jacko is a very charming 12-year-old Jack Russell Terrier looking for an adult-only forever home. A fun-loving, sprightly gentleman, Jacko still very much enjoys quiet walks. He needs to be the only pet in the home but he can have friends out and about. When at home he does become frustrated when seeing other dogs and he also enjoys the sound of his own bark so he would prefer a nice quiet home. He is great with people and very sweet chap that loves to be with his human friends. He does get worried in the vet, especially when his back legs are examined so he will need to wear a muzzle for any vet or close handling. Jacko is housetrained and as long as his leaving routine is followed, he is content to be left on his own for a couple of hours. When a new adventure beckons he's a keen bean and loves to travel in the car.

Is Jacko right for you?

Jacko loves playing on his own with his toys and may even invite you on a play date by bringing you one of his toys. Jacko likes to guard items that are of value to him, so to help him and his family with this behaviour, he is also busy learning new tricks such as 'toy drop'. Smart and playful, Jacko will make the perfect addition to the right family. If you are successful for Jacko we will arrange a meet within a couple of days and he could be home with you in the next 7 days.
