"Cricket", a symbol of good luck, is the cutest little cuddle-bug. He is an approximately 5 years young, 7 pound, terrier mix. Cricket is currently living in a foster home where the foster parent works full-time, so he goes to his foster "Grandparents" during the day.
Cricket's ideal home would be where he can be indoors and with his people most of the day. For the short periods of time that he has been left alone, he does cry, but quiets down quickly.
Cricket has free range of the house. He is house-trained and knows "go potty" and will whine quietly at the door if you have not taken him out recently. He is a "free feeder", will eat a little of his breakfast and then leave the rest to eat in the late morning/early afternoon. In the evening he gets a tiny dollop of puréed pumpkin on his dinner along with skin/coat supplements. Cricket enjoys his walks on a harness and confidently prances ahead at a brisk pace. He does "zoomies" at night in the living room and races around play growling and barking. This sweetie loves to cuddle in your lap or right next to you on the sofa. He is the greatest TV and reading companion!
He rides quietly in his carrier during car rides, sleeps through the night on the bed under the covers, and wakes up happy with his tail wagging. Cricket may bark and growl when he feels strangers are approaching too closely and may take longer time to warm-up to men, but now enjoys the company of his foster " Grandpa". Cricket is tiny and can be a door dasher, so watch him closely so you don't step on him or let him out accidentally. Cricket would prefer a home with no young children but enjoys play-dates with other small dogs as long as they are not too pushy. Cricket is certainly quite content being the only doted upon dog in the house! He should continue on his high quality food diet to keep his skin and coat in good health and will need to remain on monthly topical flea treatments to keep his flea allergy in check.
Whoever adopts Cricket will be very lucky, indeed, as he has so much love to give and only asks for you to do the same!"
