A lazy JRT?
My JRT is 6 months old from a breeder and has been with us for just on a week. He is seemingly a very quiet JRT - hardly barks (maybe at the next door dog once or twice) and is very good natured - has no problem meeting other dogs or people - in fact, positively enjoys the experience. However, he is quite lazy in that he will happily doze off at my feet or in front of the fire and spends a LOT of time sleeping. He doesn't sound anywhere near as hyper as JRTs are usually described. He is very playful at times and will engage in tug, chase and rough play very easily with me but seems quite happy to stop as soon as I need to do something else. Not that I'm complaining, I'm just wondering if it's anything to worry about.
