Sherman is an adorable 14 year old Parson Russell Terrier boy who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Lincoln, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home. He would make a wonderful companion for an older person who he can snuggle up with, once he trusts them. Life is very much on Sherman’s terms!
Sherman is a fabulous lad with a determined terrier character. Once he trusts you Sherman enjoys cuddles on his terms and is good fun to have around. He’s happily living with his foster carer’s Yorkie girl but wouldn’t want to live with a male dog, nor cats. He likes sensible older children. Sherman loves food, enjoys walks, is clean in the house and is fine to be left for a while.
Sherman is happy to be left on his own for a few hours and would be fine to live with part-time workers. He might cope with living with full-time workers, provided he had a walk halfway through the day, however preference is given to homes where oldies will not be left for long hours regularly.
Sherman is fine with dogs when on walks and is not really interested in them. He gets on very well with his foster carer’s female Yorkie (they are fed in separate places), but he has shown aggression to visiting male dogs.
Sherman has been good with his foster carer’s grandchildren aged 10+. He should be fine to live with sensible older children who will allow Sherman to do his own thing
Sherman’s favourite pastimes: Eating and sleeping, with occasional bursts of energy playing with his fosterer’s little Yorkie. He also likes squeaky toys, but they don’t last long.
Sherman’s dislikes: He hates the vets with a passion! He won’t let his fosterer pick him up but he will now allow her to touch his paws, ears etc., which he wouldn’t when he first arrived. He doesn’t like being prevented from doing what he wants and is very vocal about it but not aggressive unless food is involved.
Sherman is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. He is very healthy for his age. The vet thought that some of his teeth may need attention soon, and he also has a slight cast on one eye but nothing to be concerned about. He has no current medical problems and is not on any medication.
