JRT ignores mouse

Question:

Hi, Our JRT Fritzie (5 yr female) has shown great tenacity with a rat this summer. So, when mice started invading our house due to a hole from the garage to the den, I was disappointed by Fritzie's reaction! The mouse walked right by her - not once, but twice this happened. Fritzie did not bat an eyelash. She sat on the sofa next to me - as if the mouse wasn't there! Our Beagle Peppi at least smells where the mouse had been after the fact and sniffs and scratches but Peppi usually is crated. She also ignored the mouse at one time when sitting on the sofa!I have installed Riddex - maybe this keeps the mice from inside the walls - but they sure travel along the baseboards at night! I have stuffed the openings where they come in with aluminum foil and put out spring traps - catching approximately a mouse a day. Is it that Fritzie cannot dig holes in the house? Before I installed the Riddex, there was some rodent in the walls and Fritzie sure went wild. Is it the noise of the rodent that excites them and not the sight of them and their smell?
