I'm contemplating on buying a lil Jack Russell for my son (he really wants a pet!). But I'm worried about it tearing down my house, including my leather sofa's - not to mention the smell that comes with them!
I've seen lil cage type things, that you can keep the dog in and let it out as an when, but they look abit cruel :(.
I have a back garden to keep it outside also, but with the winter coming that doesn't seem like such a good idea. I've never had a pet before, therefore am looking for some advice, opinions and tips on keeping the dog in the house.
