Kipler is a 9-year-old broken-coated tri Jack. He is 15 inches tall, and he weighed a hefty 30 pounds when he arrived in rescue. He now weighs 26 pounds, and continued weight loss is a must. The goal is to end up at 20 to 22 pounds max. Kippy is house-trained and house-safe. He gets along very well … with most other dogs. This is a typical terrier – he has strong prey drive and can be pushy unless firm boundaries are set from the gitgo. Kipler loves to go for car rides and long walks, and he loves to play ball or Frisbee and wrestle with his owner. He has had some basic obedience training and he walks fairly well on leash. This can be an extremely vocal boy, so no apartments or condos or townhouses or grumpy neighbours! Kipler was recently tested as hypothyroid (he really needs to lose some weight!), and he will be on very inexpensive thyroid meds until he is re-tested in 6 months (see special needs note field). His vaccinations are all up to date. We are looking for active adopters who will hike or walk some of that extra weight off this super busy terrier. No cats, no small furries, no goats, and no corn or chicken!!! Kipler is located in the Tacoma area. His adoption fee is $100.

Loving, playful, very active, busy, typical Jack
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Kipler is hypothyroid. He will need daily (inexpensive) thyroid supplement (roughly $8. a month) and annual bloodwork to monitor thyroid levels. It is vital for Kipler to continue to lose weight and maintain weight loss through regular exercise. The vet is very pleased with his latest blood panel and feels that Kipler may not need continued thyroid medication if he tests as well again in 6 months as he just did in May 2021. Kipler has also had untreated yeast infections in the past, resulting in some residual hearing loss.
