Story Name: New puppies maturing
From: Anita & Gary Larsen
My Jack Russell Story:
We purchased two JRT littermates, one male and one female without researching the breed. The first year was very trying and many times we considered contacting the JRT Rescue because these puppies were wild and unmanageable.
At six months they were neutered and enrolled in obedience class. They flunked obedience class. We enrolled in obedience class again at ten months of age.
At one year and one month of age a miracle happened and they began responding to commands and acting civilized.
They passed their obedience exam last night and they have become well behaved dogs that are an absolute delight to have in the home. I guess it sometimes just takes time.
