About me

Hi, I'm Smith, or Smithy to some!  I'm looking for a very specific home - ideally one on one is how I will thrive and my new owner must have JRT/nervous rescue dog experience.  I'm an 8 year old terrific terrier and a clever little chap, full of fun and energy and I love my soft squeaky toys, learning new tricks and BIG zoomies (running as fast as my little legs can go)!  I guarantee that I'll make you laugh!  I create strong bonds with my carer but it takes time and patience so I'd have to ask you to do lots of visits to the Centre so we can become well aquainted.  Once I make friends I will get over-protective and I'm quite a nervous boy who can be handshy - I respond best to calm, gentle handling.  I'm looking for an adult only home and I could possibly live with other dogs.
