Meet Jake and Scully!

My sister C has adopted two Jack Russell-Fox Terrier-cross puppies and her two-and-a-half year old son, L, named them after one of his favourite TV shows!
Scully has mostly black markings and one blue eye, and Jake has fewer markings and a brown patch over one eye. Jake is a little quicker to catch onto instructions than Scully is, and Scully is the vocal one, even squeaking when he yawns!

As my sister works full day, Jake and Scully are going to be coming to me a few times a week so I can help her house train them and get a start on obedience work. I’ll be working on the usual “sit” and “stay” as well as behavioural things that have no command as such – not biting people as part of play, no growling during play, no kitty chasing, recall,

Being terriers they’re very clever, so it took only a day for them to start responding to “sit” and sitting when its meal time.

Puppies on puppy missions:





Puppies playing with Penny and Riddick! Penny is very keen to play and follows them around the room – they run under the bed where she can’t reach them and then come bounding out around her. Riddick isn’t quite sure what to do with such tiny puppy dogs, but he is so sweet and so patient with them.
