  Linus, ~ 3 years Male Silky / Australian Terrier  Mix
Linus Linus

Linus is a 3 year old Silky / Australian Terrier mix who weighs 16 lbs. He was thought to be five when he was first adopted, but it appears he is much younger. He has lots of energy. He would be a lot of fun for another small dog and a female pal would be a no-brainer, someone with equal energy level. He also LOVES to be out doors and would do best with a fenced in yard as he will bolt out your door and loves to have you chase him. He will let you get within a foot of him and then take off. This is why he is still up for adoption. He would be great in a house or apartment with multiple barriers to the outdoors, either a breeze way or porch, but also he needs obedience training to stay back when doors are opened. Why adopt this little boy? He is beyond cute and adorable! He cocks his head when you speak to him, as if he is listening intently and understands the words; he stands on his hind legs, as if he is dancing; jumps and leaps in your lap, as if he has springs; begs for an ice cube from the ice maker. He's taller than a typical Australian Terrier, like a Schnauzer height, but looks more like a Silky than a Yorkie. He walks well on a leash, but needs some work as he will bark at other dogs if he's allowed to pull ahead (he's good when walking beside you). He chases cats when given the chance, so no cats. He's great in the car. If you're interested in Linus, please complete an application now. He is in a foster home and can be seen by private appointment, or we can bring him to the Meet and Greet if we know you are coming.
