I have a female and a male, and if you want a big dog in a small body, then this is the dog for you! They are very intelligent, and my two both know the definitions of, "No Cows," "No Cats," "No Chickens." Both of mine are strong hunters, and they do lick their lips as they walk past the Peacocks. Ha-ha!!! The picture you posted is a very pretty Jack Russell and I think you should give her a try. She has a very intelligent look on her face and I bet you will not be sorry. I don't think people really check to see what the personalities of these little dogs have, and expect them to be like Rat Terriers. They are more aggressive when playing with their toys, and they compete to get their toys first before you do. They do this with children too, so they can be rough on young children, even if the dog is small. These are very loyal dogs. I have owned several since the early 80's.

congratulations.....

Our boy Apache, who we got a few months ago...it is like he has been with us for years now....he has my wifes treat routine down pat....He wakes me up every morning....We have two dogs who apparently can tell time....they invariably know within 5 minutes of when it is time for them to get their nightly cookie and ice cream... they ususally go to Marie and sit and look at her....
apache was reported by the rescue to be a bit headstrong and difficult.....took no time for him to learn our rules and basic commands....he is the first to come when I call them now...and an aboslute love sponge....

went back and looked at the picture.....she looks sharp as a tack....I think you will have a nice addition....
rescue dogs seem to have a sense about what you have done for em and bond ever tighter....
I don't know if it is the time spent in the shelter or what...
little Dee Dee was just a pup when she came to us from the county dog pound....but she is certain she likes it better here than there....she likes to go out and run and play. but she is not very adventerous and has little desire to leave our yard and barn area...Apache will trot off into the woods and she stands and watches him go....then comes and stands by me....Apache is checking his ground hog holes.....then he comes right back....

Well little Miss Lacey arrived on Sat afternoon and has slotted right in. She did try and chase the chickens and the cats on Sunday morning :shock: but was reprimanded and put in her place very quickly, she listens very well....but keeps me on my toes. I keep the leash on her early morning when excitement levels are high. She does not let me out of sight and has become my tail, has even started guarding :D I could not have asked for a better little companion, she is as bright as a button, am really pleased :heart:

Pdf - just as you say Dee Dee watches Apache go off so does this one watch Mr Fish, stays put at my side. It seems like the bond is going to be really strong. Sounds like you have two good dogs there :D

Thanks Limomike, sorry you lost yours.

Will post some pics when she slows down and I have had time to recharge my batteries :help:

Thanks Chippie + pdf, she's a lovely little girl :D

Here are some pics -

Am pleased to say that she has not rolled in any more strange things. She has accepted that the chickens and cats are a no no. She had a scrap with Mr Fish today which had to happen sometime as she has been testing him continuously, he put her in her place. It's no longer necessary for a leash.

So all good so far, a fine young girl :D
