My name is Rupert.I was adopted from one of the most crowded shelters in California. Someone actually picked me out,took me home,and then brought me back to that miserable place before I found my REAL family. I really tried to act like a ham so they would take me home.I jumped all over that lady. You should have seen me. I love my 2 brothers (boys 7&9).I love to play rough and make them actually think that I am going to eat them. I sound so fierce. Not sure what I am really, but maybe part Wheaton Terrier. I have some markings like a Irish Wolfhound though and wiry hair on my legs though I'm only 55 pounds. If you have any clues as to what I might be, please e-mail my mom. I walk fine on the leash, but let me off and I run like the wind. Here is a question from my mom: I am having problems with Rupert with other dogs. At first I thought it was on leash aggression, but that proved not to be (the only)case. He is very obnoxious and at the dog park he will run up,growl, jump on them and bite them lightly. It seems he is trying to get them to play because after the initial 30 seconds or so he is just fine as long as they start playing with him. Also when I am walking up to the gate of the dog park he actually starts snarling and going out of control, but again, 0nce inside (after 30 seconds or so) he's fine. Little dogs have even come up to him and jumped up at him and bitten him and doesn't do anything. He just wants to chase them (never catch them). I also have a cat which he does the same thing to. Someone told me he has a "dominance problem". Not sure how to fix this if it is indeed a problem. Seems he's just acting like a puppy. He got in a scuffle at dog park the other day but could that have possibly been because my 2 boys were by him? Maybe he was being protective? (it was unprovoked) Thanks for sharing any info you think would help! Love & kisses, Rupert
