    Lucy is a stray that followed our daughter home from a walk back in July. We have nursed her back to health, taken her to the vet to be scanned for microchip (she didn't have one), and had her treated for pancreatitis. We tried to home her with a family but they could not keep her because SHE IS AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS CATS. She is NOT aggressive towards children and is very docile, snuggly, and loving but we CANNOT keep her. I am in the dog-house in my marriage for taking her in. Please help this sweet girl find a good home. I will have her Spayed/vaccinated prior to her adoption and I insist on delivering her to her adoptive home.

What can I say, I'm a young, friendly, fun girl who is full of puppy energy and likes to give kisses. I am spayed, house trained, up-to-date on all of my shots and get along great with children. What's not to love?! Just one thing, unfortunately %BD'%BD| I am heartworm positive and will need to be treated. Like my kennel mates in the same situation (Zeus and Duke), I would do best in a foster home to heal and get ready for my forever ... (Read More)home. I really love being with people and get so excited when I see you. I really don't like it here in the kennels and would love to be a foster/forever home instead of rescue. (Less)

    Hi, folks! Let me introduce myself '| My name is Duke, and I am about the sweetest thing you'll ever meet. I arrived from the kill shelter in July 2014 and, like many dogs who first land at rescue, was in need of some TLC. I'm about 5-6 years old and short, but was a hefty 20+ lbs, so we had to take off some weight '| while we put my fur back on! I had quite a bit of hair loss (due to fleas and/or allergies) on my back and tail. In fact, they were calling me a 'little lion' because I only had a tuft of hair at the end of my long tail when I arrived. Some fabulous ointment and a new diet have helped take care of all of that, and I look ... (Read More)positively adorable now! I am now in a wonderful foster home with my foster brother Murray and sister Sophie. I love being with people again and can't wait to find my forever home. My foster mom Ava has been giving me lots of love and taking me on trips to PetSmart and other places to share my handsome availability. I'm now neutered, up-to-date on all of my shots and ready to roll home with you. As you can see, I'm fine with other dogs. I just love to be me. (Less)

    Hello, world! I'm Floyd. If you follow Dekalb Rescue's page, you may have seen the 'heartbreaking' photo of me in July of 2014. I ended up at the shelter at 12 years old with cataracts and a heart murmur and lots of fine folks set out to share and plea for a rescue for me. One of those pleas made it to these folks and, well, you know the soft spot they have for older guys and gals like me. I have been in foster care since being saved and am doing great. My foster mom has 'forever fostered' several seniors and special-needs dogs like myself over the years for rescue, including Jerry Lee. She said she's willing to do it again for me. Yippee! ... (Read More)But we know there are plenty of other big-hearted people out there who have a soft spot for guys like me, so we're sharing my story in hopes that maybe I'll find a forever home and/or a sponsor. My foster mom says I'm a great little dog. I've already learned my way around the house, inside and out. I can follow voices, am house-trained and well-behaved. I get along great with all of the people and other dogs here. Doc says I'm in pretty good health. I definitely needed a dental, which I just had (see my pic of me comforting my foster brother, who had bladder stone surgery). I could possibly be a candidate for cataracts surgery, if someone was willing to help me with it. I know that's a lot to ask, but I believe in miracles. After all, I'm here! (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

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

    Hi, there! I woke up at the Fayette County Shelter known as Dodger in late July. My listing said I was not able to relax or trust people and I was 'not showing well.' That lasted until about 11 o'clock when two lovely ladies from Georgia Jack Russell Rescue showed up to meet me and see what I am really like. They did all kinds of 'tests' and, apparently, I passed them with flying colors because they 'sprung' me from that place within an hour. They renamed me Eddie because, well, we already have a gorgeous Dodger at rescue now and they thought I needed a 'handsome name' that accentuated my 'Jack Russelll'ness.' After they sprung me, they ... (Read More)took me to 'the vets' and did more tests on me. Once again, I passed this thing known as the 'heartworm test' with flying colors. They were really excited about that. I guess a lot of dogs from the shelter like me don't pass that one, but I did. Woohoo! I'm now at this place they call 'the ranch' and ready for a new home. They are pretty certain I had a house at one point because I'm 'kind of' housebroken and I can sit like a pro for treat. My focus is pretty incredible, even with distractions like other dogs around me. I'm very smart and could possibly learn agility or other sports. The vet says I'm about 6 years old, not hyper but not lazy - I am the (dare I say it?) perfect Jack! I even get along well with other dogs '| especially the girls. ;) (Less)

    Hello, world! Gorgeous Sasha here. In May of 2014, several members of Team Russell (our volunteer group) saw me in a shelter photo and it broke their hearts. I was with my one surviving puppy (I had already lost two). I was terrified, scared of the fate of my puppy and me. The look on my face was so hopeless. The rescue was in no position to take on another dog at the time, much less a mama/puppy, but they couldn't stand the thought of us perishing at the shelter. Some phone calls were made between all the right people, and we both were pulled and taken to temporary foster care. My baby grew up and has gone on to a forever home '| and ... (Read More)now I am here, looking for mine. I am still settling in and am a little shy with people and protective around dogs. That comes from taking care of my babies. I'm sure I will adjust just fine, though, in the hands of anyone who has had a Terrier mama. They are spending a little time, getting to know me better and making sure I'm healthy and ready to go, but we wanted everyone to know that I'm safe and sound. I'm a beautiful, young girl (probably only about a year or two and the average 14-15 Jack lbs.) and I can't wait for the next chapter in my life. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Hello, big world. Hannah here. My profile is new to the website, but I'm not. I have been with the rescue since April of 2013 when several of my kennel mates and I were saved from a rescue that had neglected us. We saw many of our friends lose their lives before we were saved, but we were the lucky ones '| or so I was told. I sure didn't feel so lucky back then. My kennel mate, whom I really trusted, was taken from me during the seizure, and I ended up at the rescue, alone and terrified. For three months, Mama Donna and the volunteers tried to get me to trust them, but I spent most of my time running in circles in my kennel, wondering ... (Read More)what was going to happen. I had been betrayed twice before and expected it to happen again. Finally, in July, they were able to calm me down and I started learning to trust. It took several more months, but I finally stopped running from the folks I grew to know the most. When people would come see us, though, it was right back to frantic circles. I was definitely not ready for adoption. I had also been (incorrectly) diagnosed with heartworm, so we had to do something soon to treat me. In early 2014, a couple of wonderful supporters and volunteers (Pam and Bonnie) stepped up to help me. They took me into their home with their awesome pack of three and a cat (whom I have never glanced twice at). Slowly but surely, they helped me gain trust, taught me things I needed to know (table manners, how to walk on a leash, playtime and toys), and helped me grow my confidence. I became Hannah v2.0. As it turned out, my growth and confidence began to lead to some challenges with my foster sister, who is pretty confident herself. So, it's time for me to move on to another foster home or (praying for a miracle) a forever one, so I'll never had to adjust or learn to trust again. I am temporarily staying with Chad, who has his own special needs. I am doing well here, but need to move to something more permanent ASAP. We all agree I should not go back to rescue. Although I will be loved there, I will not receive the one-on-one attention I deserve. I've come too far to take any steps backwards. I would really thrive in a new foster/forever home without other dogs or with submissive male dogs. I've been doing fine with Isis and Chad, but trust people a lot more than other dogs right now. I can be a little insecure when another dog gets too close to my crate. Outside of my crate, I'm fine and don't mind sharing toys or space with other dogs. We just all need a strong human to keep everyone secure and relaxed. I would also do best with a human who understands dogs like me and can continue to help me grow and thrive. I have come so far in just nine months; I can't imagine who I will be in another nine. It's just important that I have stability in my life and, as you know, the kennels are no place for that.

    Jack is an amazing little guy! He wondered into our backyard skinny and covered in grease. He can be a little timid around brooms and loud noises. He loves to go out for long walks or to the dog park. He is super healthy! Our schedules have changed since we first adopted Jack and his 'brother' Phill and now the boys are left alone, locked in a room, 12 hrs a day. Its not fair to them. We would love to find them a great home, preferably together but possibly separate.

    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)

    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)

    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.

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.

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)

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.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 13-08-20-00157Hunter (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    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)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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)

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)

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.

lnteresting Jack Russell Trivia Low-Cost Georgia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The dog Eddie on the T.V. show Frasier is a Jack Russell Terrier. A Jack Russell Terrier saved five New Zealand children from being attacked by two pit bulls in 2007. Jack Russell Terriers are descended from fox terriers bred by Rev. John Russell in England in the early 1800s.
