Magnificent Matty is a male Jack Russell Terrier aged approximately 4 years old. He arrived with us from an RSPCA Inspector having been seized by the Police from a drugs den; the poor little mite was petrified on arrival. Fast forward a few days and he is coming around nicely. We would be happy placing him in most home environments as he is a gentle lad but calm, older, sensible children, if a family come forward. He seems okay with other dogs but definitely no cats or small furries please.
This timid little lad is responding well to tender loving care and his confidence is improving day by day but it may take a bit more time for his true personality to emerge, as god knows what he has experienced or witnessed. You just can’t help but feel sorry for him at the moment, even though he is now safe, he is still a little timid at times but even though unsure, he is a gentle little fella and you can’t help but fall in love with him and his sad face! If you come to see him, don’t expect him to come running into your arms, he will need a little time to get to know you, once he does you’ll have a friend for life, as long as you can give lots of good, gentle strokes!
Matty does have some good training already in place; he does a nice sit and is pretty easy to manage on lead. What he loves most is gentle strokes and attention. Nothing too rough or quick or he gets frightened. Being a Jack Russell Terrier, we do expect him to liven up in a nice home environment, although at the moment he doesn’t seem interested in toys, he prefers human company and affection. He is looking for people who can give him the space and time he needs to become confident again, so if you are looking for a true rescue dog where you can make a huge difference to his emotional well being and change his life, well Magnificent Matty is definitely the boy for you!
