Meet Lucas! Lucas is a beautiful 3-year old Jack Russell / Chihuahua mix. He is fully house-trained and does his business in the backyard. Lucas has yet to learn to walk on a leash but is currently getting used to wearing a collar and a harness. This is great progress for a little dog that spent the first three years of his life with very little human contact. He is learning to trust people.
He will be a loyal companion to someone who is familiar with small dogs and is willing to invest time and efforts in building the confidence of a very sweet boy. When he is happy and comfortable, he turns into a little jumping bean and loves playing with stuffed toys. He is still learning to be gentle so will do better with unstuffed toys.
Lucas uses the crate as his safe place; the door is left opened at all times to enable him to explore the house whenever he wants. He can be left alone for a few hours and is not destructive.
Lucas gets along with other dogs, big and small. He is not too keen of cats, and will chase them. He is usually quiet but will let you know when someone is at the door.
Because of his nervous temperament, Lucas will do better in a home with no young children. He will also benefit from the company of another dog.
Lucas is up to date with age appropriate vaccines and is neutered.
