Raven has typical Terrier instincts when it comes to prey drive (retrieving, chasing balls & squirrels & trailing scents). Her pack drive is very high making her a wonderful little terrier who enjoys people. Defensive drives (fight or flight) are low - She is sound in this area. A nice, friendly, playful little dog who loves people and gets on well with other dogs.

Likes:
  • Chew toys
  • She enjoys playing and running outside with her father Tadhg
  • She loves to go walking on the trails near our home in the woods

Ethel has average terrier instincts when it comes to prey drive (mice) and ball drive (retrieving & chasing). Very social - She enjoys other dogs and is quite people oriented too. She is a sensible dog and not an over-reactive dog, meaning she uses her head to think a situation through. Defensive drives; Ethel is not a bully in any way, never causes trouble and always gets on well with other dogs. She is always happy, in a playful mood and looking for a good time with anyone willing to play with her.

Likes:

  • To play play play…
  • Chewing on a fresh bone
  • Jumping into our arms when we call her
  • Swimming 
 
Dislikes:
  • Being alone. She loves to interact with any dog or person
  • Sleeping alone. She needs someone to cuddle with at night.
