I recently adopted a Jack Russel Terrier. I had him about a month before my roommate moved in. Now he only shows "love" for my roommate...What should I do?

Chill out for now. My dachsie prefers men to women although she's "owned" by a single woman. Funny, she gets over it every single time a guy stays over for an extended period. It is kinda like she gets sick of them and realizes who "mommy" is (and of course, who feeds her).

Reminds me of my nextdoor neighbor's cat. He won't let her love all over him but I can hold him and love on him for hours. He also looks in my windows looking for me when I am not outside when he comes to visit :)

Don't feed him and keep a pork chop tied around your neck!

Just kidding but I couldn't help but say that. Really it's quite common for dogs to take a likeing toward one person more than another but don't worry about it. Just go about your business and treat the dog nice, show it lot's of affection and sooner or later he or she will come around. Good Luck! Lloyd (Mn. Fly Boy)
