Jack and Daniels are 4 years old Maltese x Terriers that are described as two loveable rogues. They are extremely bonded to one another. They eat, sleep and do everything together and whilst Daniels is quite happy to come for an under the chin tickle and fuss, Jack is very fearful of humans in general and will need gentle and calm handling along with patience and a lot of treats! Having said that he is slowly becoming more trusting and will now take treats from my hand.
They can both be very playful and will play chase along with the other dogs in the home. Jack has started to take an interest in toys and steals them into the kitchen to play with which is lovely to see. They are a pleasure to have and make their foster mum smile as they gain more confidence every day.
Both boys chewed their feet when they were first fostered, Jack has now stopped however Daniels still has a tendency to chew but I’m sure this is now a habit rather than caused by a health issue. Jack gets very dirty ears so he will need them cleaned on a regular basis to prevent a build up of wax. Both will require regular baths and trims to maintain their white coats.
Daniels loves everyone and craves to be picked up for cuddles. First job in the morning is to give him a good tickle under his chin which he loves. He is a dear little dog and is very happy to be handled. He is fine in the bath and being dried with a hair dryer. He has started to follow his foster mum around the house and garden with Jack a few paces behind him.
Jack is very hand shy and nervous around humans, if scared he will run in fright so a very secure garden is a must. He will need patience, kindness and lots of treats to continue to show him that all humans are not unkind! He does want to interact with us and watches Daniels and the other dogs have a fuss at a safe distance whilst slowly coming forward for a treat.
Both boys react the same to children as to all humans so a home with older sensible children is needed. When settled they are very playful.
Jack and Daniels are living with several other dogs of all sizes at the moment without any problems at all. They also come to foster mums grooming salon and welcome all the dogs entering with waggy tails. Neither boy has reacted to any dog they have met either in the home, salon or out and about. They are very friendly little chaps when in the company of other dogs.
They have not cat tested and can’t be trusted with small animals.
Jack and Daniels are a pleasure to have in the home, they are both almost housetrained with having just the odd accident inside. They sleep together in a pen where there is a crate left open. They snuggle up together in a cosy bed, however Jack does like to chew and suck the bed which reminds me of a child having a comfort blanket! Apart from the bed neither boy has been destructive and can be left quite happily for a few hours.
Both boys eat together and have good appetites, neither have shown any aggression towards food, toys or anything else for that matter. I haven’t even heard them bark! I’m sure in time they will be fabulous little dogs with huge characters.
Whilst Daniels walks very well now on a harness and lead Jack is still very nervous and will look to Daniels for security. Jack will therefore need more gradual and treat based reward work on lead walking. Both boys travel extremely well particularly in a crate and will just fall asleep. Both are a little nervous at the vets but show absolutely no aggression at all.
Jack and Daniels will need a home where you have time to carry on the training of Daniels and slowly bringing Jack out of his shell showing him kindness, patience, love and treats. Everything at the moment is scary and new to both boys so a home that isn’t too noisy and or busy would be best.
