We are currently caring for Jenny, my son and daughter-in-law's dog. She has a gentle demeanor, is smart, athletic and interactive. She appears to be, however, in the colloquial speech of my upbringing: a dog put together by a committee. Her head and feet are clearly Jack Russell, her body shape is Italian Greyhound , her coat color, ears and tail are something else altogether. I've never seen a dog quite like her. We have offered to permanently adopt her but they won't hear of it, so we borrow her occasionally when they are out of town.
