Meet Gipsy

Gipsy is an approximately 7-year old Jack Russell Terrier mix with a wiggle bum. He is an affectionate and playful boy. He absolutely loves going for walks and playing with toys. He will often throw and chase his own toy until it goes under the couch when he will whine to let you know he can't reach it. His favourite game is "Keep Away".

He has been fostered in a multi-dog home and there have been no issues except he can get a little snippy with them when treats are being offered, he responds well to a "No" in that instance and hasn't taken it any further than that. He will play with the other dogs in the household. Toys have been involved in this play and he doesn't appear possessive in that situation.

Cats don't phase him unless they are running around the house, then he thinks they are fun to chase and bark at, but he has not been aggressive towards them. When the cats are relaxed, he will often use them as body pillows.

He likes to sleep on your pillow and is good with sleeping through the night.

There are no house-training issues. He does bark when someone comes to the door and when he sees a neighbour over the fence, but otherwise he is a pretty quiet boy.

Some toys will need to be monitored as Gipsy does feel it is well within his Jack Russell rights to kill stuffed toys and pull their insides out!

Gipsy had some bladder stones that were removed earlier this year. He is
now on a special veterinary diet to prevent their recurrence, and he
must be on this diet for the rest of his life. He has a grade 2-3 heart
murmur; he is asymptomatic and nothing needs to be done at this time. He
has three lipomas (fatty masses) that were tested and are benign, so it
is not necessary for these lumps to be removed. He has had his teeth
cleaned and has seen a professional groomer; he is as handsome as ever!
