Hello all, I just stumbled across this site, and wanted to say that it looks like a wonderful, helpful place. We have have 2 Jack Russell puppies, a male, Jake, who is 13 weeks old, and a female, Jet, who is 9 weeks old. And before someone asks, no, I DO NOT plan on breeding them (nothing survives in or near my house with their reproductive organs intact...my husband is afraid...very afraid :msngiggle: ). I have 3 "fixed" cats of my own, Eddie, Rilla, and Bucky, and have rescued and spayed/neutured/rehomed at least 3 strays a year since living in this neighborhood...Our last dog was my beloved "Bullitt", a Pit Bull, who passed away at 13 1/2 years old. This time around I wanted a smaller dog, and somehow ended up with 2 :msngrin: We've had Jake for about a month now, and Jet for 3 days. Jake is completely paper trained (took him all of a week to get that down with no accidents) and perfectly content in a crate. We're working on figuring out what Jet's "tell" is when she has to go, but have had quite a bit of luck so far. She's not as happy in the crate as Jake but we're also working on that. I look forward to learning to to teach this very intelligent breed plenty of tricks to keep them occupied. Jake already knows sit, down, and we on working on consistency with stay & come, so far he'll only do those two for treats. I'm going to give Jet another day or so to settle in before working with her. Ill be posting in another thread for the one issue I'm having with Jake. Thanks for letting me introduce our family!
