Dino needs a family who accepts that Dino is nervy. He needs a calm, experienced, supportive home life to settle him with people and other dogs. Dino has lived with another Terrier, a cat and a baby; it wasn’t easy on him but he did okay. Dino needs a low dog density area, the use of his beloved ball as his focus outside, and retention on an extender lead. He needs a terrier-proof garden and exit management. Dino has been in his home since he was a puppy; he joined another older male terrier, an elderly cat, and now has a baby in his life. His owners are finding it hard to manage. Sadly, the cat died, but two terriers and the new baby are demanding, and the owners want Dino to find a less busy home where his needs can be better met. Dino is neutered, microchipped and vax’d. He is currently in his own home in Norwich.
Dino grew up in a social family. He has found life a little demanding and his owners have adopted the strict ‘Jan Fennell methods’ of working with him. He is now managed, not allowed on furniture or laps, and visitors practice non-engagement upon first meetings. He sleeps under his owners’ bed under his duvet and is kept in the kitchen-dining room when left. Dino enjoys ball play. He is barky when excited and will tell off dogs who rush over. Dino can dribble in the car but other than that he enjoys trips out. Dino cannot manage off-lead dog encounters and has poor recall and so should be retained on an extender lead outside.
Dino is a four year old Red Fell terrier. He enjoys grooming every six months. He has a bright intelligence and loves to learn. Dino knows many commands and has always had the best of care. He needs a quieter home with less noise and more individual attention.
