Fred – Jack Russell Terrier
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier cross
More information about this dog
Fred is a Jack Russell Terrier & one of our mature models. He is 14″ to the shoulder & liver & tan colouring with a white face. Fred’s main asset is his good looks – he really is the classic ‘silver fox’ – but he also has a cheeky personality that charms everyone he works with – he is the master of the head tilt.
Pet Acting / Modelling Ability
As befits his age, Fred’s wild youth is behind him & while he still has lots of enthusiasm for acting and modelling, taking things steady is the name of the game for Fred.
Fred is suitable to model with other species as he does not chase. He takes direction well, from actors & the director as well as his handler. This little dog prefers out-door work but can work in studios. As well as being a trick dog he will model clothing & accessories as well as carry items in his mouth. He is an obedient worker that aims to please & while he prefers a clear brief he can be flexible with the right motivation. As a clicker trained dog he will work for food, toys & the love of the camera.
Fred can work with other adults, older children & other well-trained dogs.
