I collected this little star doggie from the pound yesterday and couldn't wait to post about her! Let me first say, I've never had or fostered a terrier so after I collected her (smart, I know) I did some research on jrt's temperament and training methods. It was all dominance, aggression, destructiveness, pack behaviour, etc. - basically a doggie horrorshow. With Yasmin, nothing could be further from the truth. She is the smartest most obedient little dog, very well socialised and confident, perfectly house trained, balanced, not barky, and simply the most enthusiastic and optimistic dog I've met so far. She made me laugh so much this morning when I came out of the bedroom as she was so happy to see me she threw herself on her back and started wriggling like a worm. :D I let her out in the garden immediately and she did her toilet instantly, then went back to her bed and kitchen and watched me to see what was next. So far she seems good with our (very bossy, very big) tomcat, although she can't help giving the occasional chase out in the garden. The neighbour's cat is bearing the brunt of it, not being part of the family and (to her mind) under no human's protection. We're just back from a long walk on the beach with her new friends Jack and Phibs, during which she chased and retrieved balls out of the sea and met loads of dogs that she greeted with friendliness and enthusiasm. Afterwards the humans went for breakfast at the beach café and the doggies were good as gold on their beds soaking up the sun. She slept like a log on the way back, and where Jack is flaked out at my feet, Yasmin is good as new and investigating the garden. She is a sweet heart, a small dog with a big personality and tons and tons of energy!

Oh my God, she's a laugh a minute! Prepare for a lot of posts from me! :D She just jumped into Jack's bed, just very matter of factly, as if she was saying, Move over there mate will ya. I think she would love the company of another dog in the house.

Little Yasmin has shown herself to be absolutely perfect in the house, there has not been a single accident. She is a little couch potato in the house, happy and content to sleep on couches, fluffy carpets, dog beds, and obviously in a human's lap in between her walks. Oh the walks, she does love her walks! She gets very very excited whenever the humans are near the front door, whether it's walk time or not. So excited that she throws herself on her back, rolls around, and generally clowns around to make the humans understand that she's ready to go!
Unfortunately, the humans are total spoilsports! In order to keep some kind of order, we insist that the dogs sit nicely at the door and not scratch or jump around, and the door does not open until everyone's calmed down. :D There is a lot of waiting at the door and everyone gets very bored, but it works. Yasmin has learned what we're expecting her to do (or not do) very quickly and once we remind her that she needs to sit, getting out the door is a calm orderly affair.
Outside, she is full of beans and very interested in her surroundings - so much so that we're having a hard time getting her attention. Humans are just so boring! :D She can be quite stubborn when it comes to who decides which way to go. She'll put her little feet down (literally) and refuse to walk until we come up with a very good reason to do so - usually a tasty treat or something even more interesting to investigate. She doesn't seem to be used to regular walks, but once she's understood that walks happen all the time and the novelty of being out and about has worn off a little, she'll be more willing to take direction and it will be easier to get her attention. As far as her lead walking is concerned, well... there is room for improvement. :D She can be quite strong for such a little dog, but again a nice walking routine will help. Once we're able to get her attention, we'll be able to focus her on us, and even though we'll never be as exciting as the next tree, she'll be more likely to stay closer.
A few words on her energy levels. I mentioned before that I am not used to Jack Russells and didn't know much about them. Wow, what a surprise I was in for! This little doggie can keep up with our crazy springer spaniel on any walk, and come back for more even when Jack's tongue is dragging on the ground. :D I am utterly impressed with this breed and Yasmin in particular, she's a little doggie power house, and yet so relaxed and snoozy inside - a perfect mix. :)

I noticed that Yasmin gets cold outside in this, ehem, wintery weather. If she doesn't get snapped up soon, crazy foster mum is going to get her a jacket. :D (Honestly I could never see the point of dog clothes but Yasmin seems very susceptible to the cold, wee skinny thing that she is. For now I just got her a super cute tiny harness. Adorable! <3 )

Yasmin, have you got that coat yet that your foster Mum has promised, or is a little sundress more like it these days :lol: ?

My apologies for the lack of updates on little Yasmin, despite my promise to post A LOT! :D I was traveling for work and my poor husband was left with 3(!!!) dogs – the big yellow fellow in the pics below is a friend’s dog staying with us for a while.

As you can see, Yasmin gets on great with everyone and anyone – canine or human. We have never seen her growl or snap at a person, although she may get a little feisty when you try to take her favourite toy OUT OF HER MOUTH – but who does that anyway except for silly old Jack. This is not resource guarding by any stretch of the imagination - everyone has their limits, right? The dogs all eat and sleep together and share the same couch and toys, without any issues.

We went for a meet and great with a prospective adopter, and even though it didn’t work out, we have learned a few valuable things about Yasmin:

1. She is generally not good with cats. Our tomcat showed his claws once and the matter was settled, however with a gentler/ shy cat, Yasmin will definitely chase.

2. She is also not good with rabbits and presumably any other small pets (that are not dogs).

3. She’s quite the escape artist! She escaped through an open (ground floor) window once to chase after neighbourhood cats, and made a good run at it in the prospective adopter’s very secure garden by trying to jump up on some bins and then off over the garden wall, again to chase a cat.

4. She did not challenge the prospective adopter’s older Jack Russell, who in turn hardly took note of Yasmin. I daresay they would’ve become friends, had there not been that small issue with Yasmin trying to eat the rabbits. ;) The rabbits were well secured so nobody was hurt in this little test.

She can also be quite pully on a short lead but is doing much better on a longer lead, and after a few minutes of walking once she’s got over the initial excitement.
She would be best suited to an active family with older kids (not toddlers) and with no cats, and would absolutely love a doggie companion. She is an amazing well socialised loving dog with a lot of energy and character. As I mentioned before, she is perfect in the house and loves lounging and playing with our dog. The big yellow fellow took her entire head in his mouth in the biggest face kiss I’ve ever seen and she didn’t mind at all, so she is very tolerant and trusting. She’s an absolute sweetheart and we love her to bits, but unfortunately cannot have a second dog – otherwise she would be ours in a heartbeat!
