Mr. Parker would like to say hi!

Hi, I am Parker! Not Peter, but athletic enough. I am an 9 month old, male neutered Terrier mix, weighing just about 17 lbs. I was rescued from TJ by TAP and have been at a wonderful foster home since then. I am fully bathroom trained(with breaks as I am still a pup) and crate trained, sleeping in there at nights. I am still working on the leash walking and some leash reactivity.

I am still young and am pretty energetic! I can be barky in new places and get over stimulated by new people and kids who are active. I am reactive to seeing other dogs and am a little scared of men, and will need a patient owner to help me gain my confidence. I come in a little hot with other doggos. I have gotten much better at that, but I need to brush up social skills when around dogs. I will do best in adult only home and no kids please.

All in all, I am a simple puppy boy who wants to play hard and snuggle harder when I feel comfortable with you! I will make a fabulous companion and keep you smiling. I am well-behaved, but be patient with me please. I’ll do well in a home with structure to set me up for success. I am very smart and thrive off of positive reinforcement training and redirection, and have made great strides in my foster home and am looking for “my people” who will continue to support my growth and training. I will do best in an adults only home without sudden movements.

My adoption fee is $500 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
