Carl is a lovely tan and white, smooth-haired Jack Russell whose dark eyes will melt your heart.
Who says big personalities don’t come in small bodies? Meet Carl, master Velcro boy, who loves to be with his humans and foster brothers. A bit reserved when he first meets new people, the Carl charm quickly goes into full gear! He is house-trained, crate-trained, rides well in the car, and gently accepts treats (low-fat, of course). Carl walks well on a leash--and is learning he doesn’t have to stop and sniff every 3 feet! He recently found his hiking paws--and loves investigating all the new sights, sounds, and smells of the woods. He is ready for more hiking and may be a good jogging partner as well. Carl will thrive best in an active household where he will get plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation. He will need to maintain his weight-reduction plan to achieve his goal.<p>Carl is all about belly rubs and snuggling, so be prepared for this little bundle of love to bring some delightful joy to that special household!
Carl is up-to-date on his vaccinations, neutered, and heartworm negative. Other than a benign granuloma healing on his lower right leg, he is in perfect health! He is on the chubby side and is diligently working on losing weight.
Carl was abandoned at a local veterinary practice.
