Breed: Male Jack Russell Terrier cross
Rebel is a delightful companion who has captured the heart of his foster care. Smart, friendly and trainable, Rebel is great with people, particularly when he gets to know them. This boy is housetrained, knows how to sit and go to his bed, and sleeps beautifully through the night in his own room. Rebel is calm when left home inside alone for a few hours while his person is out for work or recreation.
Rebel loves his two modest walks a day and enjoys stretching his paws and shuffling the autumn leaves. Rebel also enjoys home calisthenics, with occasional bouts of zoomies through the house. When out and about, he can be fearful with other dogs, particularly if they are off leash, so he is not a candidate for off leash dog parks. True to breed and lockdown experience, Rebel barks from time to time in response to neighborhood noises and when traveling in the car. While he adores his people, Rebel can be sensitive to handling by those he doesn’t know, including the vet, and requires some encouragement. Rebel’s carer has been working with our trainers to a training plan that is helping him reduce his reactivity. Given his intelligence and desire to engage with his people, consistent ongoing training in his forever home will help Rebel and his people bond, while improving some of these behaviours.
Rebel will do best in an adult only home where he is the only pet and, given his size, preferably a no stairs environment. While he prefers time with his family, Rebel will be okay in a situation where humans are out for some of the day, provided his routines and needs are met. Rebel is a champion and deserves a great landing. Are you ready to help him find his cause?
