Default Hi from Ontario

Hi everyone. I was browsing around another forum I am on for cats and I happened to find someone recommended this site for dogs.

I have an almost 6 month old basenji jack russell cross named Dexter. My husband and I got him when he was only 5 weeks old. He was taken away from his mom too soon, but when I saw him I fell in love and had to have him.

So far, he is learning stuff pretty well. He knows sit, stay, off, high five and go to bed. He goes right into his crate and lays down (most of the time) when we say go to bed. We are currently teaching him how to walk calm on his leash since he loves outside and gets excited by everything.

This is Dexter.




Until he was about 3 months old, he had a jet black stripe down his back. One day, it was gone.




This is the day we got him. He was only 2-3 pounds. He is now 24 pounds.

He is a handful. He chases my cats around constantly trying to play but they are not interested in him. He got the basenji howl and the jack russell bark. He is very hyper a lot, but he is also a very cuddly dog and loves to snuggle up on the couch with me or my husband. He is currently laying here beside me on the couch.

I found him very hard to handle at first since I had never had a puppy before, but now I can't imagine not having Dexter.
