Best Trick: Trying to convince us that we forgot to feed her
Arrival story/bio: Jackie came to us from a couple who could not provide her with a life of structure. She had no rules, boundaries, or limitations. It wasn’t long after she came to us that we discovered that she had severe aggression issues with other dogs and people she didn’t know. We unsuccessfully spent the first few months trying to place her with a local rescue, as we felt at the time we couldn’t deal with her issues. Looking back we realize how lucky we were that the rescue was full because she has become an amazing part of our family. JRTs are not a breed I would recommend to most handlers, but I wouldn’t hesitate to acquire another. They are tenacious, high energy, and a ton of fun. We have been working on her issues for a few years now and she continues to improve and have a great time in her life.
