My husband and I recently rescued a JRT from a local JRT Rescue. Yogi is our only pet, and we have only had him about 2 weeks. In our research prior to bringing Yogi home, we knew JRTs to be very active. Yogi does not seem to be interested in playing with toys or with us. He only seems interested in sleeping and looking out windows and doors. Our vet believes him to be between 12 and 16 months old. Is this behavior normal?
