Rikki (Freshfields Animal Rescue, Liverpool)

Cute Rikki is an 8-year-old Jack Russell Terrier boy who is at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool. He needs a home within a reasonable travelling distance of Liverpool as you will need to visit him a few times to get to know him before adoption.

He is a fun and affectionate little dog who enjoys playing with toys and racing around Freshfields’ field. Lovely Rikki is full of character and will make you laugh every day!

Rikki needs a quiet, adult-only home where he is your only pet. He must have a home free from children, with no children visiting or planned for the future. He feels the need to guard his things at times so wouldn’t suit an inexperienced owner, but he has bags of potential and will truly flourish in the right home. If you have experience of terriers and their fun and feisty ways, you could be Rikki’s perfect new friend.

Rikki needs someone who has the time to devote to helping him feel more secure and overcomimg his issues. He likes to take his time to get to know and trust new people and can be reluctant to go on walks unless he is with a trusted friend with whom he feels safe.

He lives in one of Freshfields ‘home style’ rooms and he has proven to be clean and non-destructive in this area, sleeping on the sofa at night. Once he has settled in at his new home he may be okay to be left alone for a couple of hours.

Rikki has mild skin allergies but this is very easily managed with the right treatment.

This boy is such a character and Freshfields staff all love him dearly and are desperate to see him settled in a home. He will make such a fun and active friend.

If you are interested in adopting Rikki, you will need to make several visits to Freshfields to form a bond with him before adoption. This will then progress to home visits and a slow introduction into his new home, so you must have transport and ideally live quite locally.

Could you offer Rikki a terrier-experienced, adult home as your only pet?
