Rescue Me ID: 14-04-14-00194Tigger (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tigger is a 5 year old male JRT whose family has had him since he was a baby, and is in great health. He really needs to be in a home where he is the only dog. He is currently living with 4 other dogs and it's not working out. In fact, it's becoming a worse situation by the day. He has started to attack my sister's other dog (who is much larger). Tigger is the one who starts it and we do our best to keep on eye on him or keep him separated, however that's becoming more and more difficult as time goes on. It's certainly no life for him or for us. He's not out and out aggressive, he's just unpredictable. He is a wonderful dog when he's by ... (Read More)himself. He's very loving, a real lap dog. He loves to go for walks and just cuddle with his person. He is house-trained, walks well on a leash and knows his basic commands. He would make a GREAT companion for a single person who is looking for a true best friend. Tigger gets very attached to his person and is loyal to a fault. He's absolutely adorable and unique looking. My sister gets stopped all the time when she takes him out. I know someone will absolutely fall head over heels for him. As you know, my passion is dog rescue and I would never in a million years let a dog in my family or even a dog of a friend end up any where near a shelter. Even if I had lived in misery I wouldn't let that happen. We are committed to Tigger for the rest of his life. However, we know that he is miserable living life the way he is now, and to be honest so are we. The tension is always high and it's just not pleasant for anyone. We can never relax. Take him for meet n' greets, whatever is necessary to find him the right placement. We need their help in finding a good home. He really is a good boy and we love him (especially my sister) but we know this isn't the right situation. Not to mention they are about to start fostering children for the state and Tigger has been very unpredictable with children in the past. Sometimes he's good, sometimes he's not. He'd really do best with a couple who has no kids and isn't planning on them, or a single person, or even a senior citizen. Having said all that, I'll say again that we are committed to him and if the right home is not found we will figure out how to make it work, whatever that means. I just want him to have a happy life and to stop being miserable. Contacts: Beth Burt 571-331-3237 bethjburt@gmail.com Julie Vallies and her email is Julie.burt@gmail.com (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive 

    Bandit is needing a new place to run freely! My husband and I recently moved from within the county to the city and he needs to be able to run crazy without any restrictions. Bandit is about 9-10, we've had him since he was a puppy. He is a sweet heart, but doesn't get along with other dogs so that's where his aggression comes out. He can jump certain fences as well. Bandit just needs someone who can love, and play with him. I believe kids would do him good, that way he can easily be tired.

    Howdy, big peoples! I'm Damon and I'm a little angel. I was rescued from an out-of-state puppy mill bust in February. My parents unfortunately knew the horrors, but I was lucky enough to have escaped them. I'm approximately 7 months old, neutered and heartworm negative. I love my littermates, am easygoing and live to give kisses to humans, so I should do great with other dogs and kids. What can I say, I'm kind of perfect!

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    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)

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 

    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)

    Tugg is a Jack Russell - Beagle male dog who is healthy, strong and responsive. He is housebroken and loves to run (like the wind)with my bike or walk with my wife. He is kept in a Pak-N-Play pen overnight in downstairs hallway. While he enjoys the out of doors, he also will stay in my office with me while I am working. Plays with granddaughter and friends when she comes over. On several occasions recently, neighborhood boys threw stones at Tugg (neighbors saw this) which has caused him to become somewhat distrustful of people, so have to be careful to let him know visitors are welcome so he won't growl at them or become aggressive. ...

    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)

I adore everyone I meet and don't mind the other dogs here. They keep teasing me that my Mom may have been a Jack Russell, but my Daddy was a coyote. Why, what's up with my ears? I'm a young boy - only a year or two old. I was just tutored and vetted and, unfortunately, they discovered I am heartworm positive.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
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.

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, young folks! I'm Octavia '| not the younger, but the older. I arrived here about a month ago, but was under wraps until they decided my best future. Now they have '| I arrived here with my younger sister, Cricket. We were both abandoned at the kill shelter by our parents and pulled by another rescue. We were just supposed to have a 'layover' here. Cricket was a pure brown-and-white JRT, healthy and happy, and went up north to a new home. I was older, not so healthy but just as happy, and so '| I was destined for another rescue instead of a home. Mama Donna didn't think I was up for the journey and thought I would end up on ... (Read More)cold concrete instead of a cushy bed. I get around just fine and always have a smile on my face, but my hearing and my sight are starting to weaken as I move into my 8th or 9th year. I also have a water cyst developing on my chest. She couldn't imagine putting me on a van and letting me go, so she decided I would stay here and they would help me find my forever home. I am so submissively sweet; I just go with the flow. I love hanging out indoors or being in the sunshine. I love other dogs. I would prefer older dogs like myself, but I put up with young Cricket, so I'm OK with that, too. Actually, I'm pretty OK with everything. If you want an older lady to hug and kiss on who is house-trained and won't give you puppy grief, I'm your girl. Right now, however, I am dealing with a couple of health issues that much be addressed before I'm available for adoption. I have a respiratory infection and need to have some teeth removed (once my bloodwork is cleared). I also have a lump on my chest that needs to be removed and tested. We are hoping it is benign.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-12-00215Ernie (male)

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)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    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)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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. My infection was so bad and untreated, their experienced transport could barely stand the smell - but she knew we were special. I have now healed and am doing great in my foster home. 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. My heart still aches for her, but I'm ready for a new start. You will just need to be patient with me because I've very scared of everything at first, especially men. I am about 4-5 years old and heartworm negative, but we just recently discovered that I have a heart murmur. I will need additional vet visits and medication and could really use a sponsor to help me with my cardiology visits. I am currently living in my second foster home and getting lots of guidance, TLC and one-on-one attention to prepare me for my new life. And, as you can see, I don't mind cats! I really like my fur brother JRT, Piper, too. He has been teaching me so much about being a good, confident boy. (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. ...

Rescue Me ID: 13-09-27-00465Sasha (female)

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.

    Hello, young folks! I'm Octavia ... not the younger, but the older. I arrived here about a month ago, but was under wraps until they decided my best future. Now they have ... I arrived here with my younger sister, Cricket. We were both abandoned at the kill shelter by our parents and pulled by another rescue. We were just supposed to have a 'layover' here. Cricket was a pure brown-and-white JRT, healthy and happy, and went up north to a new home. I was older, not so healthy but just as happy, and so ... I was destined for another rescue instead of a home. Mama Donna didn't think I was up for the journey and thought I would end up on cold ... (Read More)concrete instead of a cushy bed. I get around just fine and always have a smile on my face, but my hearing and my sight are starting to weaken as I move into my 8th or 9th year. I also have a water cyst developing on my chest. She couldn't imagine putting me on a van and letting me go, so she decided I would stay here and they would help me find my forever home. I am so submissively sweet; I just go with the flow. I love hanging out indoors or being in the sunshine. I love other dogs. I would prefer older dogs like myself, but I put up with young Cricket, so I'm OK with that, too. Actually, I'm pretty OK with everything. If you want an older lady to hug and kiss on who is house-trained and won't give you puppy grief, I'm your girl. (Less)

    Hel-lo, Seattle ... er, Atlanta! Frazier here. I've been here for several years because, like several of my rescued roomies, I have some medical issues. They aren't quite sure what's wrong with me. They only know that I have some skin issues and I've tested negative for Cushing's Disease. Whatever it is, it has never slowed me down. Quite the opposite! The people who take care of me also believe I had a negative experience with some little people because I don't respond well with kids. And, yes, I can stir up trouble with other dogs on occasion, dig up the yard and just be a muddy, little mess. But if you're an adult and understand that I am ...

    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 are calling me Kennedy and they say I am a little joy. It took me a little while to get over my flea infection and a respiratory infection, but I'm feeling much better now and ready to find my forever home! I am a young, sweet-natured, low-key kind of boy. I enjoy the regular Terrier things in life, but am pretty mellow ... (Read More)for my breed.

    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 submissive dogs. I'm a typical JRT mix with a tail that wags me. I just want to have fun, hunt stuff and play.

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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)

    Howdy! Cobb here. I just arrived at the ranch. I was picked up as a stray by the shelter. I was somebody's baby at one point, but they never chipped or gave me tags to let anyone know how important I was to them, so they never found my humans. I'm an older boy (6-7 years old) and have clear signs of cataracts, so the shelter knew I wouldn't get adopted ... and decided not to network or save me. I'm a great little guy, but I was immediately redlined because of those things ... until Mama Donna found out about me and decided that wasn't going to happen. I deserve a second chance with someone who deserves me more. I had kennel cough and had to ... (Read More)wait a little while to recoup in foster care and until this place had room for me, but here I am! Ready to roll to a great home! Despite my age and cloudy eyes, I still see, smell and love full-heartedly like a little boy. I have some anxiety issues over what I've been through and have licked the fur off of my front legs. I'll get over this, the more comfortable I get here and, especially, when I get back into a comfortable home. I am heartworm negative, neutered, walk very well on a leash, love people and seem to do fairly well around other dogs. (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 ... (Read More)meet you, but once I do - game on! Unfortunately, it takes so long for me to warm up that I will probably spend the rest of my Golden Years here. (Less)

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: 12-10-22-00125Eli (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)

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.
