Once Russel knows you, he forms a very affectionate bond with you! It can however take him a while to feel comfortable around strangers, in particular, men. Russell has not had much socialising with other dogs so we are recommending an only dog family for him. He has mixed fine with some non reactive female dogs. . His recall can be selective but this is something that can be worked on by any potential adopter. Russell is house trained but can be a sick in the car if he has been fed before travelling. Russel has not lived with cats and does appear curious towards them so we can't guarantee if he would share his space with them.
Russell was handed into the centre for rehoming after an incident with his previous owner's neighbour.
Russell is looking for an owner who understand he can be nervous of new people and isn't always keen on close contact.
An experienced terrier home would be ideal for Russell. He has shown some signs of guardinh his resources so we feel he needs a home without children. He may be too tempted to chase cats.
