Jack Russel
Good day

I wonder if you can help me.

I've got 2 Jack Russel's one that's 2 years and 6 months and the other one is a year old.

The bigger one is all of the sudden a bit strange. He has the nicest temper. But all of the sudden he is growling at me when I stroke him. I only stroke on his head, but usually I can stroke him anywhere and will love it.

I don't know if it's maybe that he is getting older that he's getting a temper, or maybe there is something wrong.

He doesn't want to eat. He is kotching as well. Maybe I am getting angry unreasonably, maybe there is something wrong. I can pick him up and he won't growl, and it's not the whole time it's just all of the sudden.

Do you prefer me taking him to a vet.

Your help is highly appreciated. He is such a fun loving dog and want to help him soonest.

He is not "old" so that should not be an issue. If he is getting sick he may have something wrong with him and a visit to your vet will help. Has he been eating bones recently?
