Rescue Me ID: 17-06-08-00053Cedar-ADOPTION PENDING (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    It's difficult to imagine this truly beautiful Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier mix in a high-kill shelter in Texas. A compassionate Farfel's rescuer saved Cedar's life..she saw he was so loving with a perfect temperament to be a wonderful family dog that she pulled him from the high-kill shelter.. and nursed his body and spirit back to joy and well-being. It's now getting to the time when Cedar is ready to be transported to his new life in Colorado. Although it will be terribly hard for Cedar's foster mom to say goodbye...she knows that he will have a great life. The following is a description of Cedar by his rescuer: --Cedar is such a ... (Read More)sweet guy just waiting to blossom. I've enjoyed watching him learn that the world can be a loving and positive place. Cedar had a hard start - but now he's learning about treats, belly rubs and that he's a very valuable pup! He may very well be initially shy or frightened, but just give him a bit of time and you'll have a new best friend. Cedar loves to run and play outside...he has the perfect amount of energy for a 3 - 3.5 year old, 15 lb healthy pup. Cedar would do well with a family who is home alot to hike and play with and run freely at the park - he would love that! After he's had exercise and stimulation, he's ready to chill on the couch..or chilling on his favorite person's lap is awesome! Cedar loves to snuggle, be petted and I've never seen him get overly grumpy about much of anything. Cedar had a bit of dermatitis when he came to us (common shelter dog challenge caused by extreme stress and fleas). We've been working hard on it with medicated baths and an antibiotic, and it's really coming along. Cedar's potentially gorgeous coat (with the cutest marking ever!) will require care...a periodic grooming and great nutrition would be perfect to keep his coat as gorgeous and cottony-soft as it can be. Cedar appears to be fine with other dogs but appreciates those that are respectful of his smaller size. He has been great with my 12 and 16 year old daughters, although I haven't seen him around smaller kids, so that's an unknown. He's excellent with my mom and has been a great companion for her during the day. Cedar is a truly smart pup - true to his breeds!! What a gem of a best friend for a family who wants to include a very cute and sweet dog in their life. He has the potential to be a truly loving and fun.. and very loyal companion. Farfel's is very excited to participate in finding this special Terrier mix his forever family. Cedar will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 6/16/17. If interested in this very sweet and loyal guy who is full of love and personality, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-04-00132Max (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max is a 1 year old, 15lb, JRT terrier mix. We are not too sure what he is mixed with, but he is bigger than a standard JRT and his fur is a little fluffier. Max was abandoned in a home when he was only 9 months old. His family moved out and left him. A few days after, some of our rescue partners found him and were able to get him to safety. Because of this, Max is pretty traumatized. He is the SWEETEST dog in the whole world, but you can tell that unkind people have left their mark on this poor baby. Max is in a foster home with 2 other dogs and just adores them. He is learning and following them around. At first, Max was ... (Read More)paralyzed with fear, he wouldn't leave his bed, not even to eat or potty. Now he follows the other dogs outside, jumps around to play with them, and wags his tail! He now plays with toys and LOVES to snuggle with his foster Momma's. Max does not have an aggressive bone in his body, he has a heart of gold through and through. Max is potty trained and a very, very well mannered dog. We have figured out what activities make make feel super comfortable and happy, and which activities make him a little more nervous. For now, Max is not a fan of walks. He LOVES the backyard and is great at going in and out to go potty, but for some reason, going on walks really stressed Max out. Again, he is not aggressive, but his tail goes under his butt, and you can just tell he is not enjoying it. He is a home body, and his fosters love that about him because it means more snuggle time and playtime in the back yard. Max is a completely 'normal' dog now that he is in a great foster home, we just want to continue that, so he will have to be in a home with other dogs to help him learn the way of the new home, and a home with a backyard so he is not forced to go on walks. If Max has both of those things he will be one happy camper and make a family incredibly happy. Max would be great for a family with less chaos in the house, and a family who loves snuggles and love, because Max LOVES snuggles! Each day, we are beyond impressed with what Max is learning and how quickly he is growing. We know there is a perfect home out there for him who has the patience and tons of love to give to a rescue dog. If you are interested in adopting Max, please email us at (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Jack Russell in Colorado
    Jack Russell Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Jack Russell Terrier is a witty, highly intelligent and trainable working dog. Jack Russells are cheeky, entertaining pets. Jack Russells do well with considerate children but do not like to be teased. Jack Russells need a dominant owner experienced in firm obedience training. The Jack Russell Terrier has strong hunting instincts and should not be trusted with small animals. This scrappy Terrier may fight with dogs with which he is not socialized from an early age. Jack Russells can live in an apartment but need plenty of exercise and do best with a yard. Jack Russells can climb and dig under fences, and need to be kept on a leash when walking.

    The dog Eddie on the T.V. show Frasier is a Jack Russell Terrier. Jack Russell Terriers are descended from fox terriers bred by Rev. John Russell in England in the early 1800s. Rev. Russell's Terrier, Trump, was depicted in a painting commissioned by Edward VII, Prince of Wales, who was a friend of the parson.
