Meet Buddy (formerly Marty), 9 years old Terrier, Jack Russell
Hey there. I'm Buddy, a youthful nearly nine year old Jack Russell Terrier mixture with an energetic "alpha-personality". I have an infectious enthusiasm for life! I am always ready to go outside to play, and I love to go for long walks to see what is happening in the neighborhood. I like to stay on top of local events. Part of my charm is that I am very alert and willing to learn new things. If you know anything about J.R. terriers you probably know that we are crazy smart and when the mood strikes, obedient. I especially like getting treats for nice behavior. I really do enjoy making my human happy as long as it meets my own personal standards at the time.I am neutered, house-trained, crate-trained and leash-trained. I know tons of language commands. In my previous life, I was not used to getting a lot of affection and it was an adjustment for me to learn how to accept being touched. I am still not excited about being picked up or held, but I will gladly accept an invitation to sit in your lap or beside you on the couch. I get a kick out of following my human around the house and staying at the ready in case I am needed. I take pleasure in my dining experience, but I do not like to be distracted when it is time to eat my dinner. And PLEASE, do not let anyone hover around my food bowl while I dine, human or animal. I do enjoy hanging out around the water bowl with pals of an evening though. Toys are not my thing, but if I get hold of a squeaky toy, I find it satisfying to rip it to shreds until it squeaks no more. I am an excellent nighttime sleeper and daytime napper in my crate. I am happiest with a routine and structure to the day. I must insist that I go to a home with children sixteen and up who can also entertain me and teach me how to use the internet. I have some English-as-a-2nd-Language ideas I would like to pitch to Microsoft.
