Thank you! She has the most beautiful eyes! She is really shy, but her and Jack are snuggle-buddies, rarely do they sleep in different nesting boxes. I love it, she's slowly coming around with me though.

Thank you Joan! Have you ever seen one with that orangy-tint to their fur? I wonder if she's a hybrid northerner. She's a few weeks younger than Jack, but she's a little bigger.

She hasn't come out to me yet, she only bit me when I gave her a bath (she didn't like that), but she doesn't bite when I take her out of her pouch. She loves to stay in my shirt though, she won't run around and play.

You'll have to see what her adult color and size is. I haven't seen that ting before.

Well heck, I would too. Why on earth are you bathing her? Hasn't she started grooming herself yet?

Enjoy that while it last! She a a Jack Russell on caffeine before you know it. :twisted: They grow so fast.

I'm not sure what she was being fed, but she had diarrhea and it was all stuck to her butt! I think she gave up trying, poor babe :(

She's one lucky girl that you got her!

How old is she? Rowdy will sit with me for hours. He doesn't live up to his name unless he's in his habitat! Then... "a jack Russell on cafenine!". I'm glad he's a snuggler though! I've read so many posts that say they don't usually like to be held, so I feel especially blessed!
I'm glad she found you, Shannon! She's a lucky little one!

I am the lucky one! She only runs and jumps when she's scared. Her and Jack are polar opposites! Jack is like a pinball, bouncing from room to room, side to side. She lets me get her out of her pouch, but then she wants to go straight into my shirt. She can't stand to be out in the open.

She hasn't taken food from me, she won't even sniff or look at a nut, peanut butter, anything. I'm sure she gets out at night because she's eating and drinking (and gaining weight), but she doesn't play in her cage like Jack does. I'm hoping this passes (she did poke her head out of my shirt last night, which I think was improvement), but if not, I'll still love her just the same!

Patti, she's 6 months old, I checked it out and her and Jack are about the same age.

I think she's either a northerner or a hybrid, because the hairs on her belly are white at the tips and black at the roots (either that or she needs a trip to the salon!) :D

Thank you, she's still a little shy, but getting better every day! She loves to play hide n seek, I almost gave up on her last night, but found her in hubby's pants pocket hanging in the closet! The only way I saw her was her tail was hanging out! :)

She looks like a Northern to me! Here is a pic of a wild male Northern that comes to our bird feeders. I'd love to get ahold of the breeder that you got yours from as we are on the search for a couple pets. Let me know!
