Butcher has been us for a few weeks as he needed time to settle. It was clear that he had not spent a lot of time with humans, He was very scared and confused.
Butcher is young boy who we feel is around a year old.
slowly is has learned to trust, staff and volunteers spent time working on the bond.
He has bonded a few but still has a long way to go before he is able to be pub buddy or coffee shop friend, if you get the drift.
He is very vocal around his furry friends so will need help with his socialising skills. we do know this is possible for him to build bonds with a canine friend as he fell in love with our very own behaviourist’s hound dog Peaches.
He will require a very active home with humans who are will to commit to him and keep him safe while he is learning. This will require careful handling and avoiding the areas in life that he finds stressful.
He absolutely loves to play with toys and we have found this has helped him feel safe with us. He is still learning to walk on the lead with out panicking but is progressing each day by getting slightly further on each walk.
Butcher will need someone who is experienced in the Jack Russell breed.
Butcher does have a high prey drive so giving him a job or sport to do will be beneficial for his mind. He will require a quiet home who have the time and patience for him.
Butcher will not cope with busy, we will however consider rehoming with a neutered female canine. This will be based on introduction’s.
