I’ve been in Australia 6 years now and knew as soon as I got permanent residency I wanted a dog. I had fallen in love with my housemates’ mini foxie and was keen for a terrier of my own. It was really challenging to find a jack russell/small terrier that would be suitable for our household but after a month and a half of applying and several rejections I was matched with Max. I’m not sure what Max’s previous life was like but he had dental neglect bad enough to develop a high grade murmur. He’s filled my life with a lot of joy. I’m his favourite person and he follows me around and loves to snuggle. I get a great happy dance when I wake up. His health has improved/his murmur is being managed and he’s blossomed into a cheeky, cuddly, strong boy. Looking forward to spoiling him for the time that he has left.
