Adopt Jayden

Jayden is a year-and-a-half old Jack Russel/Whippet, very healthy , up-to-date with vaccinations and not neutered – this will be done before homing. He is highly energetic and needs lots of attention as he is still a puppy who is forming habits.

The mother and daughter who adopted him as a new born pup got more than they bargained for in this boisterous intelligent dog. Furthermore, they have had to move to a smaller home without a garden.

At present, he receives little attention even though he has a garden and gets fed. Sadly, he has little to no human companionship throughout the day. He is becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of attention he is getting, but he is young enough to to be trained (taught) to be a disciplined and responsive human companion.

Jayden has had too little experience around other dogs and doesn’t know how to handle himself around them – he typically barks at them. However, he does sits on command and will sit on or climb onto any obstacle you ask him to. He is very playful and runs fast too (must be the Whippet in him). He seems a little confused by cats, tries to roughhouse with them, but doesn’t attack.

While he does walk on a leash, he is annoyed by cars and motorcycles (barks at them). With someone patient training him though I am sure he will adjust over time. Currently he is walked once in a blue moon.

Please let me know if you are willing to adopt this sweat natured and highly charismatic little ball of energy.
