Taz is a neutered
smooth coat Jack we adopted in April of 2000 as an 18 month old from a couple who could no
longer keep him. He was our first JRT, and provided a "paws on" introduction to
Jack Russells. Although we have had other breeds of dogs in earlier years, neither of us
has ever encountered a dog with Tazs combination of personality and intelligence.
Needless to say, he made JRT fans for life out of both of us.
We often refer to Taz as engaging, in that
it is almost impossible to ignore his playful antics and charm. Clearly, his mission in
life is to play as much as possible with as many playmates as possible,
both human and canine. He begins each day by stretching, then rolling on his
back and inviting anyone nearby to play with him.
His favorite pastimes are "rocking
it", hiking a round rock back between his rear legs like you would
hike a football, car rides, playing in the park, lure coursing, racing, and watching television.
Hes the only dog weve
ever known who can clearly distinguish shapes on TV, such as animals from humans, and will
react immediately to the image of any animal that appears on the tube. Hell even
bark at the still photo of a dog shown on a computer screen!
Taz has made us both laugh more times than
we can recall. This remarkable little comic is our pride and joy, and it would be hard to
imagine life without him.
