Dillon and his Rubber Donkey
I love these vids. Dillon is adorable with such a cute face. I was cracking up at the first one.
Thanks for sharing.
We're thinking of getting a smallish dog sometime this spring. How big will he get?
Thank you Romad! He makes me laugh so much. He's so smart. I have another video of him with the dilemma of 3 tennis balls in a small wire garbage can, trying to figure out how to get them out.
He really isn't considered small tho. He is 2-3 inches taller than my mini-schnauzer and at least 4-5 inches longer. That changes everything... That means he can get in and out of the tub, get on the kitchen table to steal food by jumping on a chair, get a drink out of the toilet. All things that the mini schnauzer can not do. Which means you have to be very cautious of what you leave out / open. And he is a terrier. He is intense, in your face, and does not listen to me, would just as soon run and not look back. (he has a "motivational collar" if I need it. I only have to turn it on now to get his attention cause it beeps. I rarely have to use it.)
If you are not prepared for that intensity then don't pick a terrier, that means a jack russell especially. Hope this helps. Just research the breeds to see how it will fit into your lifestyle. Possibly a blend of two breeds.
So before you make the leap to "terrier world" do your research!!!
Do you have dogs now? so that you know what I'm talking about?
I don't have a dog now and we always had mini. schnauzers growing up. I would love one of those but they're hard to find in shelters. I was also thinking a pug but those go quickly too. I do see a lot of terrier mixes on the adoption sites and i'm aware of how energetic the jack russels can be - I guess i'm looking for a medium energy dog.
The only other criteria is that it has to be smallish but it doesn't have to be a mini. and it has to be a rescue dog.
Thanks for the info.
Sadly there are just as many pure breds in shelters as there are mutts now a days!! Good for you for adopting a shelter dog. An other place to find a schnauzer if that is what you think you want (I love them!!), is to contact the schnauzer breeders and look for a mature / retired breeding female. OR my breeder has a clause in her agreement, beside spay/neuter being a MUST, that if you cannot care for their dog, that you return it to the same breeder to find a new home for it. So you might just find a mature fully trained dog sitting in the home of a local breeder. And the breeders all know each other, so one will know if a home is needed for another's dog. Just a thought!!
He's a cute dog. :)
Too many of these dogs and cats are over breed and some developed health problems. I rather adopt a pet from a shelter like you said and getting them spayed or neutered.
LOL, cute videos! Dillon is adorable! What a face. :-)
