Featured Rescue - Bandit the Jack Russell Terrier

Today's Featured Rescue is Bandit, the Jack Russell Terrier (JRT). Although it seems that the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter (where he is residing) doesn't have a lot to say about him except that "he is bright and high energy and is not suitable for a family with small children" ... In such a small sentence, they say A LOT. They are looking for a home with previous JRT experience.

I have found that far too many people put little dogs that pull on halters. Call it a pet peeve of mine, but all it does is encourage the dogs to pull more! I don't want to hear that "it's easier on their little necks" because that's just a cop out. If you take some time and train your little dogs not to pull, it's actually better for them to have them on a FLAT collar (if not trained to walk properly off leash)!

Bandit is very cute. We hope he finds just the right home for a JRT.

i like the point of your blog - to give "freedom" or training to our dogs. i hope bandit gets a nice home where he can be "free."
