Little Bit was born approximately March-April of 2014, so he’s not yet a year old! His mother is a Jack Russell and his father was a Boston Terrier mix. Both were very loving animals.
Lil’ Bit is very playful. He loves with his mom (the Jack Russell), and playing chase with her. He also enjoys playing with his foster’s grandkids, ages 3 and 8. He learned to "sit" and be still for a treat. Before being taught to sit for his treat, he would literally steal a treat out of his mother’s mouth. But he’s now learned to sit very still, let his Mom eat her treat… and wait to be given his. Despite his enthusiasm for food and treats, he’s never attempted or threatened to bite. I feed the dogs and he is not aggressive around his food.
Little Bit DOES always wants to be the center of attention. He has medium to big paws and does not realize he is not the same little pup that would fit into your palm anymore. He is now learning about going "potty" outside, and is learning quickly. He loves being with another dog to play. Follows his foster around the house and plops down by her feel whenever she sits.
He loves to play with his toys, or his foster’s grandkids toys. And yes, he has chewed things but now he just gets a shoe or toy and place it on his blanket on the couch. He seems to like to have it close by, but is no longer going through the ‘puppy teething’ stage, so hasn’t damaged anything now in a while.
LB also lives with a small, older female Chihuahua, but she likes no one and no other dogs. Little Bit tries to play with her and she bites his nose (she only has a couple of teeth left). He looks at her as if she is playing with him.
He is so curious when out on walks, I know if someone worked with him consistently, he would learn to love exploring on walks.
If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting!
