Hola from Topper

Jack Russell Terrier, 8 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Topper is...

He is the most faithful boy and loves to go anywhere I go, he even finds a trip to the supermarket in the car a treat.! He lives with adults but simply love’s children 👧 my 2 granddaughters are the apples of his eye! He understands so much of what I say and is often a step ahead of me! He’s a lap dog! Only one drawback is that he’s very vocal and has an opinion on everything! Wouldn’t swop him!!

The biggest challenge with Topper is...

Because he’s very clever and somewhat noisy life can get hectic. He doesn’t like the postman or the hoover so strategies are used to distract him on occasions! We live near the moors and he is solid in ignoring ponies, sheep and cattle and has a good recall

The most surprising thing about owning a Jack Russell Terrier is...

How very clever they are! Recognising people and greeting them with a wagging bum. Often preempting me when out by avoiding cars on narrow roads, he’s on a lead but tucks in close to me when I say car coming.He really loves to play ball and I try to ration how we play as he has no idea of when to stop 🛑

What I wish I’d known about Jack Russell Terriers is...

They are very clever puppies and I found house training ridiculously easy with him. The would far rather make you smile than make you cross. They do chew and scratch and my hands bear the marks to prove it but that is just the puppy stage .
