Dog Profile



Ref: 085/17

3 years 8 months

Bitch · Jack Russel Terrier · White and Tan



If you are looking for dog with gorgeous big ears.... look no further! Tara is a little shy on first meeting but show her a ball or a squeaky toy and she will be your best friend. She has come from a home with no other pets and has recently shown signs of being very uncomfortable around babies and young children. Tara has not really met cats, only those who she has barked at through the window. She is very playful and affectionate once she knows you. We are told she is good with most dogs she meets, although can be a little reactive on lead. Tara is house trained and has been okay when left for a couple of hours on her own. This little lady loves snoozing in the sunshine and will chase a ball all day if she could.


Tara was handed in for rehoming as she was very uncomfortable around the new born baby in the house as well showing nervous behaviour around toddlers.

Re-homing Criteria

Tara would suit a quiet household with a terrier experienced owner. She needs a home with no young children or babies. She may not live with a cat.
