He also requires a family that will work with him and be patient and understanding of his separation anxiety. When he is comfortable with someone, Dudley is a happy, loving boy who snuggles as close as possible and gives sweet kisses.
Like a typical Jack Russell, he has a lot of energy and would love a home that takes him on long, daily walks. Dudley is very smart and needs mental stimulation with training and playing. He was known to dig out of his previous home's fence and can easily clear a shorter fence and baby gate, which is why he requires a privacy fence. Dudley is very skittish of new people and sounds and is an extreme flight risk, darting through a door faster than you can blink.
He needs a secure harness and/or collar when on walks or in an unfenced area because he will suddenly back up or try to run if he's startled by a person or sound.
When let out consistently, Dudley has excellent potty habits.
Like most Italian greyhounds, however, he does not like bad weather, so needs extra encouragement to go on those days. Dudley loves to eat and loves to eat other dogs' food if given the chance, so he needs to be fed separately.
After a couple weeks with his foster family, Dudley now sleeps quietly in his crate through the night, as long as the crate is in the room with the family.
However, Dudley cannot be crated when his foster family has to leave for work or errands, as he will panic and destroy the crate, even risking his safety.
Dudley is a loving, friendly, active dog who needs a special home to help him thrive. An adopter with Jack Russell Terrier and Italian Greyhound breed experience is preferred. He cannot go to a home that will be gone long hours, and especially a home that will be transitioning from working at home to working at the office as a result of the pandemic, as this would be extremely stressful for him.
Dudley has been neutered and is up-to-date on his immunizations.
Out-of-state applications are not being considered at this time.
