Hello, my name is Lechaim & Oortjies!


More about me

Male (Small). jack russell. young-adult (DOB: 2013/2014 & January 2017).

Adoption details
Shelter: Barking Mad Network (Gauteng)
Tel: 063 040 6071

Oortjies is a 3/4 year old jack russell boy – he will be neutered, vaccinated & dewormed before homing. Lechaim is his son who was born in January 2017.  He will also be neutered, vaccinated & dewormed before homing.

They are both good with children, small dogs & cats.

Oortjies likes playing fetch and staying close – dislikes being given instruction – no matter how calm.  He cowers for almost everything which leads his family to assume he was abused before they got him. He does not really chew stuff but tends to wee on everything (this is likely due to not being housetrained or neutered). He likes to be close, when our baby was very small he used to sit by her side all the time. He is very good looking and strong.

Lechaim likes keeping to himself – Will sit in the dog house by himself for ages. Likes to chase the other dogs when they run, but doesn’t chase anything else himself. He was born with a cleft pallet. I hand fed him for about 3months. He then managed to start swallowing kitten food whole and from then on Puppy food and now he eats almost any dog food, but we still give him puppy food.(Specifically Montego Small Breed Puppy Food) – I think he dislikes being handled because of the hand fed upbringing. But he does like being rubbed and sit by your feet sometimes. He is very cute but skinny. Doesn’t eat much, but wont contend for food with the others.





I am good with:

dogs, cats, children
