Pet of the Week 6/3 - Tobie

Georgetown, SC - By Paula Caruso

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - Jack Russell Terriers are known to be high energy dogs that like to hunt small animals and Tobie is what they call a "Teddy Roosevelt" Jack Russell.

He is short and stocky with logs of energy, but adorable to be around! Jack Russell Terriers are very intelligent and catch on quickly to commands, but you do have to spend time training them.

Tobie doesn't like being on a leash, but if you work with him we think he'll be a great dog to take out for walks!

Adoption specialists at the St. Frances Animal Center say Tobie is about 3 years old and weighs 14 pounds. They say he does bark when he is left alone, so he might do well in a family that already has a dog.

If you would like more information on Tobie, or any of the other animals available at St. Frances, visit their web site or give them a call at (843) 546-0780.
