Successfully Re-homed Jim is a friendly and playful 9 year old Terrier. He didn't have a great start in life and due to this he would need to build up his confidence and trust with his new owners and he will need lots of TLC. Jim would need a quiet home and if there are children they would need to be sensible  - possibly 13+.  He is good with other dogs but not cats. Jim has been vaccinated and neutered.
