Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Weighs 31.5 lbs. I am currently looking to rehome her to a family with a fenced in yard that she will have access to. She adores being outside. I currently do not have this option for her and I want her to flourish. She is very well behaved and house trained. Having another dog in the family would be great as long as they are not dominate. She loves and wants to play with other dogs. She is submissive so I just want to make sure that she gets along well. She has never shown any type of aggression whatsoever. She is a very loving...sweet little lady. She enjoys sitting next to you and being with you is enough for her. Not very needy at all. ... (Read More)NOTE: Bella is fully vetted. She is now covered under a Wellness plan thru Banfield Vet with Petsmart until June 2015 (this is provided by me - nothing you will pay for) and this will follow her. I will provide all details for her plan and vet records to her new mom. 2nd NOTE: PLEASE do not hesitate to inquire no matter where you are located. I will bring her to the right home. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack Russell/Bulldog Mix, 11 months old, Male. Davy Jones is quite the character. He is so energetic and playful but does sleep well in his kennel at night after a little whimpering. He loves to play with his foster brother, chasing each other like little children in the yard. He loves water and plays in the pool. He is so funny when he drinks water straight out of the sprayer in a stream out of the hose. He is quickly learning about treats and seems to know the commands 'sit' and he will shake your hand with some coaxing. We are working on his potty training. He has the cutest little ears the face forward and lay down so neatly. He is ... (Read More)starting training classes with his foster mom. He has some beautiful brindle patches on his otherwise white coat. Sweet, sweet little boy. In Foster Care (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Tyson loves all kinds of people and other animals. He is sweet and gets around really well. His back legs are paralyzed, but he is able to walk pretty well. He has gained strength in his front legs and he almost looks normal at first glance when you're watching him walk. It's quite remarkable. I am a widow with three children and I am no longer able to care for him. We are looking for a loving home to place him in.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Buddy, he is a very cute Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix that needs his forever home! He has had a very hard life for the little bit that he has been here.. Buddy was bred and born in a home of a hoarder (a pet hoarder), he shared a back yard chained up with 13 other dogs, not including the animals inside this home! He had NO human contact of any kind until they were all turned into the local kill shelter. Because Buddy had no contact with humans before he was scared and would nip at the volunteers at the shelter. Know one wanted poor Buddy and he became on the shelter's 'urgent' list to be PUT TO SLEEP!! He finally started coming and ... (Read More)connecting with one of the female shelter workers, she was the only one that he would allow to pick him up, play with him, etc. I went to the shelter to volunteer and heard his story, he only had one day left in the shelter before put to sleep day :( I sat in a room, just me and him for 2 hours. I sat in the middle of the room while he would cower in a corner. I knew that all he needed was confidence and encouragement. So I adopted him that day to save him and once he is ready, find him his forever home. When we got home I then sat on the floor with treats in my hand to coach him out, finally after sitting there for about 30 minutes he came out and took the treats from my hand, a couple of times he would retreat back to the kennel but soon he started to gain my trust :) The very next day I opened the kennel door and went to my living room to watch tv, he came running out of the kennel, jumped on the back of the couch and started wagging his tail and giving doggy kisses! He has been my shadow everyday since then! I have had him for over 3 months now. He will bond to someone but you need to understand that he is still scared and he will need your patience. Once he bonds to you he will NEVER leave your side, he will follow you everywhere you go (literally lol)! He is a one person dog and will do great in a home with an older person/couple or someone WITHOUT children under the age of 10. You must also know that if you come to meet with Buddy you need to know that he is going to be scared of you, it will not be a perfect meeting because he is not a perfect dog until he gets to trust you and you get to know him. Buddy is about 2 years old, he is very healthy, he LOVES to fetch tennis balls and stuffed toys, he is the perfect lap dog! He does not like to be left alone in the house, he likes to be with his person every minute of every day! He is about 95% potty trained, he has a bit of separation anxiety and that is the only time I have a problem with him having accidents in the house, but when I am home he has no problems. He does fine with riding in the car and does good with walking on a leash once he knows you. He is up to date on his shots and he is not neutered. His adoption fee is $55 and that covers his FREE neuter to participating vets. Once Buddy knows you he is the best dog you can ask for with his own little quirks :) He is funny, lazy and very loving! He is a very good companion! He is great with other dogs, big & small. Not sure about his compatibility with cats.. If you are interested in devoting your time and love to Buddy then please contact me. You must give me a description on the family he will have and you must give vet references to insure that he goes to a good home. If you do not give the information asked then you will not be considered to adopt Buddy. He must not go to a home with children under the age of 10. Hope to hear from you soon! (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Half Pint is a wonderful animal. She is sweet, cute and smart. Unfortunately I am unable to give her the time and attention she deserves. Ideally she would be in a home with kids and/or other dogs so she could have fun, play, and get the affection and training she needs. She has no aggression or other issues at all - in fact she is very loving and well behaved.

She is about 35 pounds and has a happy personality when she is out among people and dogs. She is very saddened to be returned to her kennel as she loves companionship.

    Collin was brought in by one of our lovely customers. She kept watching this poor dog being abused by his owner almost daily.

He deserves so much what it means to have a real home....

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I'm Oliver. I'm an older guy, but don't let that bother you - we small dogs usually live a lot longer than big dogs. I'm a Jack Russell Terrier, but since I'm older, I've mellowed out and don't have the energy level of a young JRT. I'm house trained and mostly like to lounge around the house and maybe take short walks a few times a week. I currently live with several dogs of all sizes and ages and I get along with everyone fine, but I don't play or wrestle with the other dogs. I never chew things or get into any trouble when my foster parents leave me to have free roam of the house. I'd love a human companion or two that stays home ... (Read More)most of the time so I can just be in the same room and get petted every once in a while. I don't like to be separated from my people or stay in a crate all day, but I'm not an in-your-face dog. I'm happy to stay at the foot of the bed or on the other side of the sofa while my foster mom sleeps or works on her laptop. My dream home would be with someone who is retired or works from home so I have constant companionship. I bark sometimes when left alone, so I don't think I would do best in an apartment where my people would be gone all day. I have some hair loss on my back and little stub tail - the vet says it's probably due to allergies. My foster mom is feeding me salmon oil to see if my hair will grow back some more, but a little hair loss doesn't bother me if it doesn't bother you! My foster mom doesn't know if I'm friendly with kids or cats, but I get along with dogs of all sizes, so cats shouldn't bother me. I can get a little testy when I'm picked up suddenly, though, so maybe a home without kids would be best for me. I'm neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, including rabies, and microchipped. If you are looking for a little companion who is no trouble at all, please contact adoptions@fultonanimalservices.com to fill out an adoption application and meet me! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This sweet adorable girl needs a new forever home. We are moving to a location that does not allow pets. She is 6 years old, and lived with us for the past 5 years. She is very playful, but is happiest when she is snuggled up on the couch next to her family. She enjoys walk, and is a good guard dog but not a constant barker. She came from a shelter when she was a puppy. We have worked with her and she has truly blossomed, she is shy at first but quick to warm up. She follows basic commands and can be walked off leash. She has been well cared for and deserves a home that can provide her with love.

Franco will need a fence to keep him safely contained during outdoor play but will also demand snuggle time with his new person as well. Come meet Franco today!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished 

    Brooklyn here! If you're a JRT rescue advocate on social media, you might have seen me before. It's not often that a northern dog makes a southern trip; quite the opposite with the kill shelter ratio in the South, but you know Mama Donna's heart for those seniors who have lost everything '| My human was too old to take care of me and was sent to a rest home. The family didn't want to care for me, so off I went to the kill shelter. The volunteers the the shelter could not fathom me being put down after all of that loss and they knew I would be, given my health issues. Despite those challenges, I am full of spirit and life and I want to ... (Read More)carry on the legacy of love I knew all of those years. I arrived here in April 2014, but have spent a good portion of it at the vet. I have heart issues, am uncomfortably overweight, have an ongoing respiratory infection and (zoiks!!) I have kidney stones. My heart is too weak to have them removed surgically, so I am now on a special Science Diet s/d to help dissolve the stones. I've passed one, but have more. Despite all of this, I'm still happy and smiling. I love exploring the field and being held. Once I get over this initial hurdle, I am going to make someone else a wonderful senior dog. If you love older, special-needs sweethearts, I'm your man! (Less)

    Millie here! What a year I had in 2013! I was in the 'bad room' at Clayton County Animal Control in late January, facing the Rainbow Bridge, when someone swooped in at the last minute to save me. I had been listed as a 'small JRT boy with a stab wound.' Imagine my angel's surprise when I turned out to a '40-lb Terrier mix girl with a flesh wound.' It didn't matter; she was already in love with me '| and I was out of there. They didn't really have a good kennel for me here. Most of their guys and gals are 10-15 lbs. They tried to find me a 'bigger' rescue to go to, then the found out I was heartworm positive and needed some TLC. They ... (Read More)didn't want to let me go to anyone else for that, so I went through the treatments. (I had no idea anything was going on; I just didn't like having to stay inside and be calm.) All that stuff is now behind me. I'm a happy, energetic girl about 2 or 3 years old and sweet as can be. If you love bigger dogs, you are going to love me! I am currently living in a foster home with one of our former rescues (Baxter) and loving it! I can't wait to find my forever one. (Less)

    Hello, everyone! Zeus is my name '| or at least that's what my tags said when I was picked up while roaming. Several attempts were made to contact my family, but no one ever called back. We were able to get ahold of my paperwork, but it said I was 10 and deaf. Hm, no, not quite. I can hear a treat bag from a mile away and I am full of puppy energy with pearly white teeth. I'm probably actually around 2-3 years old. My only 'issue?' I am currently heartworm positive '| but that's nothing new around here. We'll beat it. I have been living with Carson (a former GA JRT rescue) and his parents in foster care the past couple of weeks while I ... (Read More)went through intake and got 'tutored.' It's been a great experience. According to my foster parents, I'm 'completely crate trained, housebroken and wonderfully behaved.' Oh, sure, I jump occasionally, but what Terrier doesn't? I co-exist great with Carson and should adapt fine in a multi-dog household. I'm a little bigger than your regular Jack and am definitely a Terrier mix. But I'm just as handsome as they come and ready to find my forever home once again. (Less)

    Hunter here! My brother, Parker, and I were scheduled to be put down within hours a few weeks ago at Walton County when their story made its way to this rescue. We were both young boys and were running - no tags, no collars, no one to claim us. One of our volunteers noticed they were redlined, but very young and sweet and it just seemed wrong to let us leave this life so soon. We spent some time in boarding until they had room for us, but now we're here and ready to roll. I am definitely the alpha and would need to be re-homed with no other or very submissive dogs. I'm a typical JRT mix with a tail that wags me. I just want to have fun, ... (Read More)hunt stuff and play - but I also love to just sit on your lap for hours and watch the world go by. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, there! I'm Dixie and I just landed here in the 'heart of the south' rescue. Yeah, I know, I'm a little more Rat than Jack, but you know these people '| I came from a place that was busted for cruelty and hoarding. (Yes, the same one as Sam, Bailey, Sadie, Pebbles, Rocky and Hannah.) I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! I have been staying in foster care, but my time ran out. I needed to go somewhere '| quickly. They had to do some shuffling, but they found a space for me. Not sure how they do this all the time for dogs like me'| I just know it takes them a long time to scoop, feed and ... (Read More)clean all of us everyday '| and they all have jobs '| I am such a sweet, gentle girl; a little skittish with strange new objects (took me awhile to warm up to the camera), but very loving and willing to trust. I have a couple of swollen nipples they are concerned about, so I need to see the vet. I've apparently had babies recently, so that may be why. Like Bailey and Sadie, fleas have sadly attributed to some hair loss on my tail and, unfortunately, like Sam, I am heartworm positive. I will need to go through slow-kill treatments before I will be available for adoption; however, we are open to a foster home for me in which to heal during the time I need to stay calm and let the treatments do their work.

    Diamond here! I was on the redline list when many people rallied to have me pulled from the kill shelter. They had to scramble to put together another kennel with panel scraps, but they got it done '| They knew, of course, that I was way too beautiful to not have not ended up at the shelter without there being underlying issues. Sure enough, I had kennel cough; fleas had done a job on my rear end; my teeth were worn down and chipped; and '| yes, I'm heartworm positive. It appears I may have been used as a breeding dog as well. Fortunately, I only have adult worms and was healthy enough to be spayed. No more breeding for me. I get to be ... (Read More)the baby now. I recently had my heartworm treatments and am currently recovering, staying calm and waiting for those nasty worms to work through my system. I will be up and at 'em soon, though. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Hello, you fine folks! Ernie here. I was dumped at the kill shelter a few days before Christmas. My teeth were rotting/jagged, my mouth was swelling from infection, and my fur was eaten up by fleas. The folks here were full (as usual), but have a huge spot in their hearts for mistreated old JRT seniors like me, and Mama Donna decided to give me a special Christmas gift: The gift of life. Little did she or the volunteer who picked me up know that I wasn't alone. I was dumped with my brother, Bert, a big 'ole lovable black Chow mix. The last thing they had room for was another large dog (we're a small dog rescue who has been searching avidly ... (Read More)for homes for Sassy and Millie), but they couldn't fathom breaking us up '| and so they didn't. We have been here for a couple of weeks and are already feeling and doing much better. My hair is starting to grow back and, thanks to antibiotics, the swelling around my mouth has gone now. I'm feeling feisty and every bit a JRT! Let me outta here; let's go play! The vet thinkis I am around 7-8 years old (it's hard to tell with these teeth) and, unfortunately, I'm heartworm positive and am going to need an extensive dental. We have set up an online fundraiser to help cover these unexpected costs. Every penny goes to us. I need to do a little healing before I'm ready for my forever home, but would certainly not mind a foster home during these cold months. Ideally, I would love to spend the rest of my life with my brother, but we are OK without one another. (Less)

    I'm Dodger. Guess how I got my name? Yup! I was dodging in and out of traffic one day. Some good samaritans stopped the cars around me and took me to our rescue's vet to find my owner. But I didn't have a collar and I wasn't chipped. They looked for my parents, but no one showed up for me. So '| here I am! I'm a young boy; another 'Teagle' (mix of a terrier and Beagle) that these folks have become infamous for. I love people, but I'm not crazy about other dogs, probably because my previous humans didn't socialize me much. But, that's OK - I'm young and have much to learn. Unfortunately, I must overcome the fact that I am heartworm ... (Read More)positive first. Then we can talk more about adoption. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Saved from being put down in Murray County, this sweet-natured little boy has a lovely wirehaired coat and gets along well with other dogs. A bit cat-aggressive, and most JRTs aren't fond of them. Sweet and playful but can be nervous about meeting new people and sometimes shows submissive urination. About a yr old and 15lbs. Needs a terrier-experienced home willing to work on improving house-training using proven crate-training methods and lots of walks/exercise. He improved tremendously in just the first week once he felt loved and reassured. Nearly all JRTs are excellent climbers and diggers who were bred to ferret out and follow prey to ... (Read More)great lengths, so MUST NOT BE LEFT OUTSIDE UNSUPERVISED. Pet is neutered, vaxed, wormed, deflea'd, unfortunately tested heartworm-positive (mild); pet will continue to need careful supervision and committed administration of preventative monthly on the same day; may need anti-inflamatories and/or antibiotics w/vet visits depending on whether he has any reaction during the process of the heartworms dying off, and should be leash-walked during recovery until he converts to negative. Eventually, he'd love to have a dog playmate to interact with. Heidi (rat terrier mix, sep. listing) is very attached to him if adopter is interested in the pair. Please call/Text 678-MEOW-NAP or email adoptanewpet@gmail.com for more info. Adoption donation $165 against vet bills, no checks. (Less)

    Loving but highly timid, this very pretty, sweet girl needs someone to show her gentle compassion, lots of time and reassurance, who also has a securely fenced yard where she can race her heart out. She has bonded to the JRT Gunther as sort of her 'security blanket,' so we'd love to see them go home together, but she is available separately as well. Would like another gentle dog in household to keep her company, show her the ropes, and help reassure her about human kindness after she's obviously experienced less than the ideal. Around other dogs, she perks right up, starts wagging & frolicking around the yard w/them. About 3yrs old & 25lbs. ...

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sasha is about 4yrs old, a little 27lb cutie in need of a JRT-savvy home. Her original parents did her a disservice by never introducing her to anyone outside the family as she grew up, so her foster mom needed 3 visits to get her used enough to her presence to come home w/her, then her foster dad one day had to just pick her up and take her outside in spite of her growling for her to realize suddenly that he was in charge & all was okay with the world. So, she needs a dog-experienced adopter who speaks kindly to her (this makes her roll on her back for a tummy rub & permit petting) but also assertive in a positive way, so she doesn't feel ... (Read More)that she needs to try to assume leadership status, which terrifies her. She's up in the air w/kids; in her past life, she belonged to a very sweet 8yr old girl whom she worshipped & daily waited for her return from school; but she seems very upset by little boys who race around the aisles at the petstore during adoptions. Therefore we'd recommend older (teen) kids if any in the home. Now she adores her foster dad & follows him everywhere. She needs a deep bond w/one or two adult family members that'll last the rest of her life. She would probably prefer to be in her safe spot (roomy crate) in a bedroom while guests are over so she doesn't stress out over strangers intruding. Like any terrier or hound, she'll need LOTS of daily activity, toys & puzzles to challenge her in her crate while you're away, and long, interesting walks to get sufficient exercise & outdoorsy time--always on a leash or she'll run away! Cannot be full-time outside as she needs her humans & a safe, indoor environment. Please take her home so she can get out of foster care & have more personal attention & time on your lap during TV-watching, too. She's a HUGE snuggler once she knows she can trust you. Spayed, wormed, deflea'd, vaxed, microchipped, heartworm-negative, on monthly HW and flea/tick preventative. Adoption donation $125 against vet bills, no checks.

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

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

    Hello, everyone! I was found alongside the road in the country (in an area where people like to dump dogs) by one of our volunteers - no chip/no collar or tag, starving, dehydrated and covered in fleas. She scooped me up and brought me here to heal. It took a couple of baths, but they finally got all the fleas off me. They named me Kennedy, and they say I am a little joy. Unfortunately, we have discovered in recent months that I have some medical issues. I developed a hump on my back and some instability and stiffness in my hind quarters. They put me through lots of tests and x-rays and found that I have multiple collapsed discs and slight ... (Read More)hip dysplasia in my right rear hip joint. They diagnosed me with something called degenerative arthritis of the spine ...| and they say it's chronic. That means it is likely to progress, but we don't know how quickly or if it even will occur. Doc says I'm not in any pain, though, and it definitely hasn't slowed me down, but ... Kennel life is also making me a little stir crazy. I was a free-roaming country boy at tone time and life in a 10x10 space has given me some obsessive behaviors, like digging ... and not just your normal Jack Russell digging. I mean, nonstop (can't stop) digging! This repetitive action, of course, is not helping my back any. With all that said (sorry to lay so much on you), my rescue folks realize that finding a forever home for me is going to be difficult. Only a few special (and they are definitely special) people ever step up to take on a dog like me, financially and for the long run, but I've heard there are lots of people who like to do this thing called 'foster.' It means you put me in a stable environment with daily direction and the TLC I need, while the rescue helps cover my medical expenses and we all work to find me a forever home. If that sounds like something you might be willing to do, we would love to hear from you. You can find a link to the foster form in the right column. I should let you know that, even though I may have some health issues, I am all boy and very active. I am definitely a Jack Russell! Cats are prey, and I like my space, so I would do best as an only dog or with another dog who is more submissive. I have been in a foster home before and did very well. (Less)

    Chad here. My beloved and belated wife, Clarisse, and I were left behind at an abandoned house by our family; they moved out and left us with several other big dogs to fend for ourselves. The bigger dogs went after me and left me with a nasty wound on my leg, then someone aware of our situation picked us up and took us to Clayton County Animal Shelter. Our sad story made its way to people who care and we were pulled from the kill shelter.

Unfortunately, I lost ... (Read More)Clarisse while she was going through her heartworm treatment. It was too advanced, and she was too weak from everything we had been through to fight it.

I have been through a lot and will need a patient owner who understands JRTs like me. (Less)

    Hello, there. Rocky here. The place I previously lived was busted for cruelty and hoarding. I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! Now I'm here and have been told many times that life is about to get really good. I arrived looking pretty good (for our situation). I had a growth on my chest and, like all the other dogs, my teeth were in rough shape. But it didn't take long until they realized that I was losing weight - rapidly. I was a sick boy. The growth turned out to be just a fatty tumor, which we had removed. I also received a dental. (Doc said my teeth were ground down from chewing on the ... (Read More)crate after we were abandoned in our last location.) They treated me for parasites and gave me these yummy satin balls to gain weight. I have improved significantly and am feeling really good now. I could use another pound or two, but Mama Donna says I am ready for happiness. I am probably around 5 years old; it's hard to know for certain. I'm incredibly smart and learn quickly. As you can see from my photos, I can even do some agility and would make a great running companion. I can be a little food aggressive, though, so I would be best as an only dog or in a home where someone understands this and knows how to handle it. (Less)

    Hey, tall peoples! I'm Slick and I came here from the same breeder with Eli and Elanor who 'had no use' for me anymore. Actually, I don't think he had a 'use' for me, period - my head is as big as my little body, so I was most likely a 'reject.' Try and tell that to the peoples who take care of me now, though. They call me a 'football with legs' and just adore me. I may be small with a big ole head, but I'm too darn cute for words. Despite these little legs, I love to run and jump. I'm not really a fan of other dogs, though, so I would do best in a one-dog family. I also have a lot of trust issues and can be very shy and scared when I first ...

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00141Jackie (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi, everybody! I was in really neglected shape when I was brought here in the summer of 2011. The ends of my ears were gone. My nails were painfully long. My teeth were bad. I had skin issues and I was missing patches of hair, including my tail. My nails and teeth were taken care of, but it seems that I am allergic to almost everything and everything. Because of that, I am considered 'special needs' and require medication to help limit my scratching. Unfortunately, the medications work for a period of time, then stop working, and I'm back to scratching. You can tell by my pictures that those nasty old allergies are keeping me from being the ... (Read More)beauty queen I really am. I'm an older gal, so I may have to live out my golden years in my room unless someone is willing to give me the attention and vet care I need in a new home. If you are, please don't hesitate to call and come visit me! I'm a fun and spunky girl; I just can't play outdoors a lot right now. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00132Elanor (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I was dropped off at JRT rescue several years ago with Eli, my hubby and partner in terrier crime. We were breeder dogs and, much to the dismay of the man who used us for profit, were deemed 'useless' because our babies were coming out 'too small.' He had worse plans for our fate, but fortunately decided to call Mama Donna to come and get us. We are so fortunate she did. I have not been forced to have babies since then and I get to spend every day here with Eli and lots of other funny dogs. I'm an older gal and I have a heart murmur that requires monthly medication. In addition, I am only adoptable as one-half of a pair with Eli, so most ... (Read More)people pass us by. That's OK, we really don't mind since we like it here, but we know that my medicine costs a lot, as does our food and other vet bills. We understand if you're not looking to adopt an aging couple in their golden years, but would definitely appreciate being sponsored. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00125Eli (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Eli here! I am a rock star and I know it. Front stage, center! I am positively gorgeous and funny and, as many visitors have learned over the years, if you can't adopt my wife with me, you can't adopt me. I tried it a couple of times. I ran away to get back to her both times. She and I are an extra-special, dynamic duo. We came here as a breeder drop-off; he said we were 'too old' and he 'had no use' for us anymore. Humans can be silly. We have plenty to offer, especially in the 'ooo-ahh' laugh department. In short, we are now happily 'fixed' and feistier and funnier than ever. We have been here for a long time and, due to aging and my ... (Read More)wife's heart murmur, will probably live out our Golden Years here. I don't mind because my rescue mama and volunteers treat me like gold, but Elanor and I wouldn't mind sitting on a couch for the rest of our lives, either. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    I was dropped off at the Warner Robins shelter in August with nails so long they were literally curling, an ear infection and a plethora of other ailments. Everyone who saw my heart-wrenching shelter photo could not fathom the thought of me ending my life in the shelter and now I won't. Thanks to more than 200 shares on Facebook and several people stepping up to pick me up, sponsor me and transport me here, I am saved! Thank you to everyone! I am still fighting some of my initial infections and I walk a little funny from injuries in early life that were never fixed, but am getting healthier by the day. I will soon be neutered. (Nope, my ... (Read More)owners didn't clip those, either.) After that, I'm all yours! If you like would like an older (I'm about 8 or 9), sweet guy who just likes to hang and be with people, I am your man. We can grow . 'wise' together. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 12-09-10-00214Harry (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Only I know about my past and I can't talk ... well, not in a language you humans fully understand, at least. I was on death row at animal control when they called to let this rescue know there was a super-cute 'n super-silly JRT looking for a second chance. They couldn't say no. Look at me - who can?! What they do know about me is that I'm 5-6 years old, am a purebred broken coat Jack, have a folded ear and I love to do tricks, especially rollover and turn around ... and, well, just rolling in the dirt (thus my Dirty Harry name). I'm not a big fan some people at first, but once I warm up to you, I will entertain and play with you for hours.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Jack Russell in Georgia
    Jack Russell Dogs can make good pets in Georgia 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.
