Sad , Reserved JRT
(Muskogee, OK, US)
We have resecued a female full blood pointer, and a female chahuahua terrier mix and an old tom cat that comes and goes. They all get along very well. About four days ago I found a small male JRT running loose on the streets and brought him into my home. He is so well behaved, potty trained and well mannered. He is friendly, but he is so reserved and watchfull and seems so sad. He keeps trying to escape. I caught him twice and I have blocked up every exit, but I feel its just a matter of time and he just waiting for my guard to let down to try and escape. He's not afraid of anything or my other pets. He interacts with them pleasantly but from a distance. Since this place is new to him, do you think his behavior will improve on sadness and do you think he will ever stop trying to escape? HELP!
