Rescue Me ID: 17-12-11-00094Alice (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Whenever a sweet and engaging Terrier mix gets into an urgent situation, Farfel's rescuers like to help. We find that dogs of this breed mix are engaging, super-smart and make excellent family companions. They are a great fit for most active households and are extremely loyal companions for most age groups as well as other dogs. Alice is one of these cuddly, kind and very sweet Terriers. The New Mexico vets believe Alice to be a Cairn Terrier mixed with a bit of Jack Russell (this assessment was based on body structure and personality). Once comfortable in her surroundings, Alice is a playful and very silly/entertaining girl..very true to ... (Read More)typical Terrier traits. Alice is so puppyish in her enthusiasm for all people that are kind to her. As you can see in her photo, Alice was very worried in the shelter environment (who wouldn't be?), but once she was removed from the overwhelming noise of the harsh environment of a high kill shelter and in the care of a foster ..she started to heal. And soon, Alice's face began to lose the worried look she wore while waiting for rescue. Her love of life has started to return and a hesitant waggy tail shows her devotion to her new foster. Most rescue dogs are initially a bit shy (rehoming can be confusing and a bit overwhelming). Once they're responsibly placed in a home with a loving family that provides frequent socialization, nurturing, love and belly rubs.. and they will begin to shine. Alice is one of these pups...she's a blank slate that's just waiting for the commitment of a great family. Her love will know no bounds as she becomes a best friend and the greatest lap dog ever. We're searching for a family that spends lots of time at home...or loves to take a small, sweet dog along with them. Dog-loving and active retirees would be perfect. Alice would be a loyal best friend...overjoyed with the time spent together and the loving attention she would receive. A younger family that works from home would be great as well. Alice will be a great home-office well as an excellent foot warmer on winter days. Alice is such a great age and size... at just about 2 - 2.5 years old (a perfect age - young enough to be open to new and wonderful possibilities in her life yet old enough to have left most babyish behaviors behind) and weighs about 15 lbs...perfect size to accompany her people anywhere a sweet pup is welcome. We'll update when we receive Alice's exact age and weight. Alice has the potential for a beautiful coat with shades of silver, black and the whitest of white running through it. Her coat looks shelter-tired right now. With a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition, Alice's hair will return to the classic beauty of a scruffy Terrier coat. We've requested that Alice be spayed prior to her arrival in Colorado. Since New Mexico shelters have very limited access to vets and funding...this isn't always possible. Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs for Alice's spay and microchip after her arrival if our Denver vet is used. Alice will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 12/16/17. Applications are currently being accepted for this sweet and devoted best friend and can be found at If interested, please fill out and return to or fax to 303-443-7730. PLEASE NOTE: If you're truly interested in adopting Alice, please be sure to fill out our adoption application. It's the only initial tool that we have to determine a great match for this very deserving dog. We're sorry, but in most circumstances, we're unable to get back to those that don't submit an adoption application. Thanks so much for choosing rescue. (Less)

Animal ID: 12-04-00463Toby (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    No, Toby is no Dalmatian, but Toby needs a home just the same. He appears to be a cross between a beagle and a wired haired breed, maybe Jack Russell? In the fall of 2016, Toby's mom's health began to fail severely and he could no longer stay with her. In early January, his mom passed away and one of her last requests was that Toby find a fabulous forever home and we want very much to fulfill that final wish. Toby had been a great companion for his mom and did live with cats and dogs in the past. Today, Toby is in Centennial where he goes to the dog park most days and romps with a cute little Dalmatian in his foster home. He loves attention, ... (Read More)is good in the house, uses the dog door and will sleep in a crate but he doesn't figure he needs to. And he likes car rides too. Toby has been adopted before but it was not a good fit for him. He needs patience and understanding or he can become defensive. For more information, contact Tori at Adoption $100. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-03-00233Louie (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    With his pinto-patched coat and soft green eyes, Louie loves curling up in his doggy bed to watch his bright new world. Sweet and shy at 16 pounds, he's still quite feral, having missed out on his early life lessons in human interaction and socialization. And yet, paw step by paw step, he's progressing daily with the patience guidance and encouragement of his foster mom. He gets along well with cats, is gradually growing more comfortable around the other dogs, large and small, and is slowly giving into his natural curiosity as he explores his environment under his foster mom's watchful eye. To increase his trust in and comfort around people, ... (Read More)she tempts him with the biscuits he likes, and pets him and talks to him, gently and softly. Now, to fully flower, what Louie truly needs are patient and loving adopters in tranquil surroundings with a securely fenced yard to keep him safe and happily at home fur-ever. (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.
