Jack Russell Rescue Not Housetrained and scared of men
by Simon Owen
Hi, I have a 7 year old Jack Russel (bitch) and she is a rescue dog.
I have had her for about 12 months now. When i first got her she was underweight, had yellow fur, wasn't house trained, would run off at every chance she had and was a complete nervous wreck.
She had burn scars on her nose and her jaw looks all wonky as if she has been hit really hard by something, someone.
The problem 12 months on is that she still isn't house trained despite repeated attempts and she is absolutely petrified of men. She will walk with my partner off her lead and not run home and she will be as loyal as anything in the world with her, but she wont with me.
The good news is that when she runs off she always runs home straight to the front door and she is now a healthy weight and her fur is now a lovely white colour.
She is also very well looked after and seems very happy until she is approached by a male.
Can anybody help with these problems?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Just another thing, we also have a 4 year old Manchester Terrior (bitch) and they get on very well and seem to look after each other.
