Hey, who’s this extra-happy dog here? That would be Fletcher, a 2-years old Jack Russell Terrier, who has just finished playing fetch!
Like most JRTs, Fletcher is a very energetic and athletic dog. You can even throw toys from a chair if you get tired- Fletcher jumps right into your lap when he brings back the toy and drops it right there! I even have a sort of video (it’s from my point of view as Fletcher jumps on my lap):
Because of his excellent food-motivation skills and athleticism, Fletcher would be great dog for agility or flyball. He would also make a great running companion, although he would prefer to have a job (aka chasing a toy as opposed to just running for running’s sake).
One other thing that made me laugh was that Fletcher would also try to accept treats while having the toy still in his mouth. He couldn’t figure out how to drop the toy and then take the treat. After a while, he just gave up and spat everything out and finally ate his treats. He’s going to be a very entertaining dog, that’s for sure.
If you are interested in Fletcher (or JRTs), please come visit him in Kennel 44. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
