9 year old female Jack Russell Terrier available for adoption

Squeak is a 9 year old female Jack Russell Terrier. She is with a host family in Kingston upon Hull. She came to the rescue due to a dangerous situation at her previous home.

It only took a few days for Squeak to settle in with his foster family. From the beginning, she was eating and drinking normally and also playing.

However, she became very anxious when left alone in a room, even for a few minutes, and she would bark until her foster family came into the room. She’s still like that to some extent, but not as much, because she now knows her foster family is coming back.

Squeak would like a house with people around most of the time. She was left for short periods in foster care and although she was quiet when she returned from foster care, she barked at first and didn’t seem happy to be left behind.

Squeak thrives on attention, playtime and cuddles. Maybe she could live with someone who works from home. Squeak is OK with dogs outside, unless they are too pushy, and then she will tell them to back off.

“I took her to my grandson’s house and someone else brought a very bouncy dog. Squeak sat on my knee and got a little agitated and nervous and peed all over my knee. Squeak seems to accept the cats she sees on the street, but she has never lived with cats before, so we are going to find her a cat-free home.

Squeak doesn’t seem to be bothered by children. Her foster family’s only slight concern is that Squeak previously had a herniated disc in her back and therefore needs to be lifted in a certain way.

So we think she would be better off in a home where all the children are sweet, sensible teenagers who will understand this special consideration for Squeak’s well-being.

Squeak is very good at walks and enjoys them. She does not walk but is on an extendable leash and does not pull. She has not been released since arriving in foster care, so we do not know her recall.

Squeak likes to go for walks twice a day and has the energy to walk for an hour, but this should be done primarily on a soft surface.

Due to her previous back injury, she has a wobbly gait and traps her back feet while walking, so walking on a hard surface for too long causes her feet to hurt, unless she is wearing some sort of protective boots. If she walked on grass, however, it’s not a problem.

Additionally, when she jumps over a doorstep, she sometimes gets her hind legs stuck. Her adopter placed a folded towel on the step to make the surface softer. Squeak is very good in the car and lies down and falls asleep.

What a dream! Her previous owner told us that Squeak loved to chew on stuffed animals – she would just tear them to pieces. Her favorite treat is pig ears, but she doesn’t seem to like dog treats or chew sticks. Plus, it’s post-shader, so you need to get there first! After her tea, she likes to play for a little while then settles down on the sofa.

Squeak is a cuddler and as long as she is near you, she falls asleep. She should be allowed to sleep on your bed because that’s all she’s used to. She is quiet all night once installed. She can go upstairs alone but it seems difficult and she has to be brought back downstairs.

When transporting, you must hold her with both hands under her stomach, as advised by her previous owner’s veterinarian. Her adoptive person carries her up the stairs. She’s afraid of fireworks.

Someone let some slip recently and Squeak couldn’t help but shiver. Her adopter wrapped her in a blanket and hugged her tightly. Apart from fireworks, she doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything. Her ideal home will be with a reasonably fit retired couple so she can have someone with her all the time.

Ideally, her new home would be a bungalow with a garden so she doesn’t need to be carried up and down stairs. You must be happy to leave Squeak on the furniture and sleep on your bed every night. You will need to lift and lower it carefully.

Squeak is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and treated for fleas. She takes no medication and is full of beans. As previously mentioned, her back injury has left her with a slightly odd gait and this means she needs to be lifted carefully.
