NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Breed: Male  Jack Russell Terrier/cross

DOB: 05/04/2013
Weight: 8.2kgs
Location: Fawkner

Terry came to us with his bonded buddy Scooter after their owner went into care. Now he has lost his lifelong bonded buddy and needs a family to fill the big space in his heart. He is a gentle old soul who will happily snuggle at your side or follow you around the house. He doesn’t seem overly protective of his food or space and has had a very successful introduction to his foster carer’s family. We haven’t heard him bark yet and he probably needs less exercise than most as he’s an old gentleman who likes to stop and smell the roses. He is happy to use a dog door and quite clean inside.

Terry seems to be a little lost when at home alone since the loss of his bonded buddy, so maybe introducing him to some new friends will also help cheer him up. Maybe a gentle doggy companion at home would allow Terry to help make him open up and show his true doggy personality.

He would be a fabulous companion for an elderly person or couple and welcome their family for visits, especially if they already have another dog make him feel properly at home. Can you help Terry find his new home?

Medical Notes: Terry has cherry eyes which will have surgery. He has FNAs to come on a number of lumps and bumps and we will xray one of his legs as he occasionally limps.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
