Hi everyone, my name's Albert and I'm a Jack Russell Terrier of around 9 years of age, I arrived at the centre after being found as a stray so nothing is known about my background. I'm looking for new owners with a quieter lifestyle who have experience with my breed and lots of time and patience. I can get a little worried when I first meet new people but it doesn't usually take me long to come round and I'm told I'm a very sweet and affectionate little fella once I'm comfortable with someone, I always greet my friends with a waggy tail - in fact, my tail seems to never stop wagging!! When I first arrived at the centre my friends noticed I was extremely vocal when I saw other people and dogs so they have spent lots of time slowly introducing me to lots of new humans and pooches, and they aren't all that bad! I now go out for walks with lots of our lovely volunteers and they all say what a charming little man I am. I've also made some dog friends that I walk lovely with as they are really calm and let me do my own thing, however if a dog reacts badly to me I will return the rudeness by barking back at them. As I'm still on a learning curve with other dogs and how to act with them my friends think it would be best for me to be the only dog in the home, but think it would benefit me to keep socialising with nice calm, friendly dogs out on my walks. I am still quite vocal when I see people and dogs when I'm out, my friends think it's only fair that we make any potential new owner aware that this could just be something I may always do, or I may surprise everyone and settle so well in my new home that I don't feel the need to bark at everything - it's really hard to tell! I'd really like a quiet adult only home in a more rural area where I can get all the attention that my friends think I very much deserve. As I came in as a stray my friends are unsure if I've lived in a home environment before and think it's likely I will need housetraining! I do have a couple of health issues which my friends will be happy to discuss with anyone that would like to give me my forever home.
