- Izzy (Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier & Mixed) 10 years, 6 months old in Murrieta, CA
We adopted Izzy a few months ago and do not know much about his past. We were told that he is a 2 year old Jack Russell mix and that he is deaf. We have gotten input from Vets and others about his age and what breed he may be. Our Vet said that he is for sure around 10 years old, which is way older than what we were told. Even so, we love him just the same. Izzy is deaf, but we taught him some basic hand signals! He loves going on walks,playing with his toys and snuggling. He is very friendly toward people. Izzy can get aggressive around a lot of other dogs but for the most part he is fine when we walk past other dogs on our walks. Izzy is a great companion and a great addition to our family!

Gets along with other dogs: No
Izzy can be friendly to other dogs but I have seen him be aggressive when there is more then 1 dog. When we walk him he is usually friendly to other dogs when we pass, but when he is loose in the dog park he seems to get into a lot of scuffles.

He does seem to want to chase cats, but he has gotten used to the ones in our neighborhood and now just walk right by them with no issues. There is one kitten that comes up to him and he just smells him.
Izzy is deaf.
