Meet Boss

Boss has been surrendered into foster care due to changes to life circumstances with the owner and his current living situation was not conducive to happy life for him. Boss is now looking for a loving new family. He was originally from the litter of a family friend of the previous owner and he had him for five years so has not had much change in his life so will need some time to adjust.

Boss is Microchipped as a Jack Russell Terrier but his owner advises he is a Jack Russell X Chihuahua Mix.

Male, Desexed
5 Years 7 Months old.
Brown and white, small to medium size

Boss is very excitable. When new people are introduced or visit, he will still uncontrollably urinate out of excitement. If interacting with other animals, they may dislike his high energy and he is used to being the only dog in the home.

Boss has been currently, living indoors with his previous owner. He is used to live in his old house with a backyard for 5 years but preferred to be inside. He lived inside at night.

His previous exercise routine was 30 minutes to an hour walk a couple times a week.

He eats three meals a day. Dry food for breakfast and lunch, wet food for dinner.

He appears to be ok with another animas and kids but his excitement level might be too much for some dogs to handle.

He has some separation anxiety. Will sometimes bark loudly if left alone and if the previous owner leaves view when leaving home. He can be very excited about other people and dogs, may jump on hind legs.

He is desexed and his vaccinations are currently up to date.

Expressions of interest are welcome and will arrange for the most suitable application or two to have a meet and greet with him at a local park outdoors. If your interested in Boss please supply as much detail as you can in your initial enquiry explaining why he would be a food fit for your home.

Currently Located in the Parklea, Quakers Hill area however location may change depending on our foster carers arrangements.

He is not available for interstate adoptions.
