Cheeky is super energetic even at the age of seven. When we first got her, she was limping and needed to get a portion of one of her bones cut out, which is apparently not uncommon amongst terriers. She's fine now, and her leg has never stopped her from jumping!
She gets extremely excited at most things, which is really cute at times but can get a bit frustrating. She has really healthy teeth for a dog her age. We still think of her as a puppy, because that's how she acts.
She has a round body with a small head, which I think is only due to her being the runt of the litter. Her brother, who is owned by my cousins, has long fur which resembles an Australian Terrier, rather than Cheeky's fur which resembles Jack Russell fur.
Small terriers like this would be great for an active family. Cheeky will never get tired of going for walks and playing fetch!
She also likes a nice petting, and loves to be the center of attention.
