Layla is a healthy sprightly little thing with lots of personality and affection to give. She has lots of years left and is still an active little girl. She has come from a home environment due to her not suiting that environment. She is friendly and cuddly however she does have some boundaries that need to be respected.
Layla struggles with hand ability when it comes to something that makes her uncomfortable. Things like health checking her, putting on a harness, picking up is too much for this little girl. Although she may accept it, she will have her ears down, avoid eye contact and lick her lips. All signs that she is not comfortable with the situation. Her new owner must be able to recognise her comfort level and adjust their behaviour accordingly.
She also has STRICT boundaries round food. Layla guards her food and other things she deems valuable such as chews, some toys. Guarding things comes from the fear of these being taken off them. This behaviour isn’t resolved but rather managed and prevented.
Simple things such as when she has her food, that hers, not for us to touch again or practice taking things off her. Her food is her food. Be the only pet in the household. Do not feed her human food from the table or in any other manner. Her dog food is her only food. By following all of these simple measures then she will live in harmony with you.
Layla needs to be in an adult only home with no other pets. She needs a household that respects her boundaries when it comes to food and over handling.
We wouldnt want anyone to think she is a handbag dog. She is very much an all four paws on the floor type of gal.
Jack russells can be a very energetic dog, originally bred for hunting small wildlife. However, most commonly now they are a great companion dog for those that was a small pal next to them on the sofa. Piglet has the features of a Jack Russell but the stature of a pug.
