Pedro came in to the shelter from a home. He is a very loving and affectionate dog, once he gets to know you. He struggles with strangers and will take a large amount of time to bond. He is not the type of dog you shove your hand in his face so he can sniff you then hes all good. He needs time with a person being around him without trying to force themselves upon him. Once you do get this bond he is fiercely loyal.
Pedro came in to WARS from a home environment therefore we know all of his history.
Although Pedro loves people he is familiar with, he needs to be in an adult only home, with preferably only females as he has had issues with males in the past.
Pedro likes other dogs and lets them sniff him but if they invade his space too much he isnt comfortable. therefore we are looking for a home with him being the only pet in the home.
Pedro isnt too comfortable having strangers come and go from the house and therefore is looking for a calm house lifestyle.
Pedro is quite an anxious dog and therefore will need an owner who will cater to this and not put him in situations he is not comfortable with.
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.
Like many small dogs, Chihuahuas are less likely than large dogs to be given obedience classes, socialization, or appropriate exercise and training. However, they thrive well when given appropriate socialization and training. The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to one particular person and in some cases may become overprotective of the person, especially around other people or animals.
