Hi! My name is DIETRICH. I am a neutered male, white and tricolor Jack (Parson) Russell Terrier mix. The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 2 months old. I have been at the shelter since Oct 17, 2020.

I LOVE TO: hang out with my favorite people. I am a really loving dog once I get to know you.

I HAVE: a very active personality. I love to run around and play in the yard!

I GET ALONG WELL WITH: most other dogs.

I WOULD RATHER NOT: live with children. I am a quiet dog and would be scared in a very active household.

I NEED: a dog experienced family.

I AM: a sweet dog and would be a great addition to a calm household, possibly with other dogs as well!
