Snowy, Jack Russell X Westie, DOB 2010 – Godstone, Surrey


Homing Requirements: Snowy needs a family that all really get terriers and know instinctively never to confront and how to build trust over time slowly, being respectful and to forgive when they make a mistake. Snowy is learning bite inhibition but is likely to make a mistake initially and probably in the first 2 months. Snowy is a 'special needs' terrier who needs to be assuaged into the pack where he can relax and be gently managed e.g. the fun of waiting his turn. Snowy must not go into kennels or be crated as he becomes fearful of restriction. Not for children or many visitors. Restricted exit management regime i.e. front door/side gate to ensure Snowy only leaves the house on a lead but he can come off lead in secure areas. Anyone interested in helping Snowy must read through his thread carefully.

His Story: Snowy was found stray and very fearful and couldn’t be managed in kennels. Fortunately the dog warden had seen his other side before in kennels. Snowy reverted to an amenable terrier in foster for 7 months living with another dog but needs sensitive management. Snowy has failed a few homes he needs very slowly to build his trust with strangers. We believe Snowy has had harsh treatment in his past. Neutered, chipped and vax'd. Currently held in a kennel area near Godstone, Surrey.

Advert: Snowy is a snow ball; a true darling! Snowy needs a respectful sensitive approach working with him and reassuring him as he develops his self-confidence. Snowy walks and runs well on an extender lead and delights in meeting other dogs and people outside. Snowy can manipulate, winning friends and will soon be eating out of their hand! Can be crated to travel and travels well in the car, but will guard the car, a crate in a house and a kennel. Once he makes friends he remembers them. Please don't apply to home him on the basis of looks alone - we are looking for someone who knows how to work in with terriers.

Snowy is a small rough coated short Queen Anne legged Jack Russell with Westie ancestry too. He is 2 years old and is ready to take command of any situation. Snowy relaxes down when he isn't in control and its our aim to home him in with a family who can keep him chilled as little snowballs should be. He delights in other dogs company.

Please note that this dog is currently in boarding kennels and is also available for foster until a 'forever' home is found.

Snowy has settled in his new accommodation at the kennels and was a happy little boy on Saturday when we caught up with him at the photoshoot. He was just coming back from his walk and as he had a cheeky air about him and a bounce in his step we decided to take some less formal pics ...

"Well Hello"!


"Tickles please"!










"Ah, I remember you ... you are the chick with the sausages ... interesting"!


Snowy is still available for foster until his forever home comes along!
