PLEASE READ THE SPEC before applying
'Theo is a 10 month old Jack Russell x Yorkshire terrier. He does have a bite history, but this has not presented in his current foster home, but he is treated as a hand shy dog and everything is taken slow and steady with this boy. He is a sociable dog, but does require a gentle introduction with both humans and dogs. He can lack confidence, and has been under socialised to the big wide world as well as being over/mishandled in the past but given space to move forward at his own pace he can take new experiences in his stride.
Walked first and left with the company of another dog, he has been left for short periods and the house and soft furnishings have remained intact. He is crated overnight and is slowly being moved further away from the bedroom. Walks well on the lead, can be reactive to moving trucks and approaching dogs, but this continues to improve. He can become possessive of the person or item he values the most, not wanting other people or dogs to approach, but with clear boundaries this is not an ongoing issue.
Basically he is still a blank canvas and it will be up to his new family to paint a beautiful picture with him, he would benefit from living with a calm steady dog.. He is steadily learning basic commands, would make a great agility dog (this boy can fly!!) and joining a Good Dog Citizen Training Program would help him to build a strong positive bond with his new family while continuing to guide him into becoming a well rounded dog.'
