Rescue Me ID: 15-01-14-00225Baxter (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Baxter is a wonderful dog who we have had since he was two months old. We have another Jack Russell (girl Lily 5years old) and Rescue Dog (boxer/lab Walter 4 years) who live in the same house; Baxter is the oldest by a couple of years and he is 7. He is very independent yet very playful with other dogs and humans. He has never bit anyone including our 3 1/2 your old son. He does get scared if he is squeezed by children and although he does not bite or growl he is not a fan of being squished by toddler's lol. Ever since my son was born and the introduction of Walter (our rescue dog) Baxter has been marking a lot and this has been going on for ... (Read More)3 years, this is more of a dominance thing we are told. He tells us when he has to go out and he is fully potty trained. There is just something in our house that makes him feel the need to mark over and over again. We have gone to trainings and have been working with our vet for years on how to resolve this. We have used diapers and everything but he can take them off. He is on Prozac at a low level which helps as some of this may be related to anxiety and was recommended by our Vet, he is not hyper or high strung, he is actually quite mellow unless he is going on car ride or a walk. He sleeps in his cage a lot which we leave open, he is in a closed off area when we are not home with the other jack Russell with his cage open, It is like his house. He sleeps in our bed at night. He does not mark when we are around, and it is random. We clean very well and replace drapes and carpets, we realize the smells have to be eliminated to avoid repeating actions but he still does the same areas over and over even with new carpets or draps. This is causing a lot of stress within our household and we have exhausted every option to help him get over this. It breaks our heart we can't figure this out and we hope a new family or owner will help, we don't know what it is about our house that makes him do this when he never did. We are animal lovers and I have personally had dogs in my life since I was 6 years old and now 35. We will never give him to a city/town pound and we want to do the best for him and hope this forum can help. The breeder is out of state and I don't have their info nor the means to travel that far(PA). He is very good at other people's houses (although he has not been anywhere for long time) and I believe he would do best either as the only dog, or with others dogs but with more activity. My wife and I work a lot and with taking care of our son we don't have a lot of time to spend independently with Baxter which could cause some of this issue. The other two dogs also seem to entertain themselves more than Baxter. Older children(4+) may be good as well so he can play with them. He is a very good watch dog but not the type of dog that barks at every sound. He would do best with a fenced in yard. He has been trained to go to the bathroom on gravel area of our yard and has been doing so for years. We have a very large back yard and doggy door but don't have the time to spend with him that he may need but he loves the outdoors! He will run if not on a lease or fenced in, although he does not go far and we don't have him in this situation a lot so he does not run away a lot. He is up to date health wise and we have all his records and I believe I have his birth record. I really hope someone can help and we are very grateful for this. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Jack Russell in New Hampshire
    Jack Russell Dogs can make good pets in New Hampshire if they match your IifestyIe. The Jack Russell Terrier is a witty, highly intelligent and trainable working dog. Jack Russells are cheeky, entertaining pets. Jack Russells do well with considerate children but do not like to be teased. Jack Russells need a dominant owner experienced in firm obedience training. The Jack Russell Terrier has strong hunting instincts and should not be trusted with small animals. This scrappy Terrier may fight with dogs with which he is not socialized from an early age. Jack Russells can live in an apartment but need plenty of exercise and do best with a yard. Jack Russells can climb and dig under fences, and need to be kept on a leash when walking.
