Our pet pick of the week is Henry, a 3-year-old, tri-colored Jack Russell Terrier mix. He certainly is adorable, but he can also be a handful. Typical of terriers, he wants to rule the roost. He needs a family who will love him with both kindness and a firm hand. Henry loves to go on car rides, play outside and go for an occasional swim. If you are willing to set boundaries for this little firecracker of a dog and won't be a pushover when he gives you the look, he'll make a wonderful, fun and entertaining pet.
