My Little Milo
I had placed an ad on Kijiji looking for a JRT as I had to have my little Susie (JRT) put down due to medical issues.
The family that had Milo also had a 3 month old baby, so it was a little hard to look after both as we all know a JRT needs a lot of attention as a puppy. Needless to say I brought him home on a visit to see how he related to the family prior to saying "yes" I will take him.
He is the joy of our family. He is now 7 months old and he sure shows the charicteristics of a true JRT.
He is a lovable little guy and has learned many little tricks. He can speak, lay down, shake a paw, and dance around in a circle on his hind legs. He can certainly get himself into trouble, and knows it too. For the most part he is a wonderful pup. He was easy to train to go outside (still has the odd accident) but he will go to the door and jump up to hit the blind so we know he wants out.
As a true JRT if he's not leashed and he sees something - "bang," he's gone. He thinks it to be rather funny when you have to chase him, just getting close enough to grab him, and then he's gone again. I would certainly appreciate any comments as to how to stop this with him. Our female was the same and it's something that we ourselves haven't learned to make him stop doing this. So we can't blame Milo - it's ourselves that have to be trained. Here are a few pics of our little guy. He has white eye lashes on one eye and brown on the other, which at first I thought he was possibly albino. The vet told me no, it was just his coloring.
