About me

Hi, I'm Diesel, a very handsome 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier. I'm looking for new owners who have experience owning nervous rescue terriers. I am very wary meeting new people and any potential owner will need to be prepared to do lots of visits at the centre to establish a good bond with me. Once I have built up trust with someone I'm a sweet, affectionate boy who loves to play ball and go for nice long walks, these are my favourite things! Unfortunately I've had lots of homes already which has been very confusing for me so it's vital that my new owners have lots of time and patience as it may take me time to settle and for my real character to come out. Due to my nervousness I'd love a quiet, adult only home with no visiting children. I could possibly live with a female dog of similar size but am unable to live with cats or small furries because of my strong hunting instincts.
