Rescue Me ID: 15-06-26-00279Moe (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Moe was rescued from the local AC, hours before he was set to be pts. As if that wasn't bad enough he was diagnosed with double pneumonia and almost died. After a week in the hospital Moe was brought home and began to recuperate and learn to live in a home with other animals. Moe plays well with dogs of his size, and gets along with larger dogs after proper introductions are made. Moe is a great alert dog, and let's you know when anyone is coming! He has learned verbal commands for no, back, and off, but still working on others. He loves to hide under the bed where he feels protected and safe. He is a sweet boy that needs someone that ...

Animal ID: 1539Abigail (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Abigail is a sweet 5-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who was impersonating a Rat Terrier at the shelter. Quite likely the shelter workers thought she wasn't hyper enough for a Jack Russell so called in Rat Terrier rescue. With her inquisitiveness and playfulness, she would be a great match for an active family. She absolutely adores humans and considers everyone her friend. She welcomes visitors to her home with a wagging tail and a happy dance. She likes to fetch (and return) a thrown ball, chew on squeaky toys, and 'destuff' stuffed toys. Abigail weighs about 14 lbs. and will jump up into your lap and roll over for tummy rubs. Ready for a ... (Read More)walk or a ride in the car? She is right there beside you, eager to go along for the fun. On leash she does best with a harness (she does tend to pull in her excitement). In the car she will go right into her travel crate and ride along quietly. In fact, she is not a very 'barky' dog. Abigail gets along very congenially with most other dogs after being properly introduced to them. Since she can be a bit bossy, and at times try to do a little resource guarding, she would do best with a low-key, easy-going dog (or two) who won't mind living with a diva, or she would do fine as an only dog. She lived with cats for a short period and was a little too interested in them but not threatening. Abigail has mastered the doggie door and does great with her house training when she has regular outdoor access. On cold or rainy days, though, she needs to be escorted out to make sure she takes care of business because this princess is a warm weather gal. Abigail is crate trained and at night will sleep quietly either in her crate or on a doggie bed, as you wish. To see more photos of Abigail and learn more about her, please visit her online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/abigail . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Abigail, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

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

    John John here '| and I am applicably named: I'm handsome as can be. Wink, wink. I was running stray (no collar, no chip) for some time until I wandered up to a nice man's house. They tried for some time to find my family and even took me to have my shots and tests (heartworm negative, thank goodness). Unfortunately, their daughter was allergic to me, and they didn't have a yard for me, so they had to tether me outside. A lovely lady couldn't fathom the thought of me being out there by myself or coyotes in the area getting me, so she tried to take me home '| but she had cats and, well, even though I'm a sweetheart, I'm still a Jack. ... (Read More)Sorry, not a fan of cats. So here I am with other Terriers like myself, waiting for the next phase in my life. I just went to the vet this week to get 'tutored,' but have a little cold, so they're working on curing me of that first. I'm an older boy (vet says 9 or 10 years old) and a pretty mellow kind of guy. I didn't even mind it when they bathed me '| several times '| 'cause, well, I do like to get dirty. I'm a Jack; it's what I do. But I'm a wonderful boy who enjoys all of the good things in life, from cuddling with you to taking walks on the beach. (I just added the beach part since there's not one around here '| but it sure sounds fun.) As soon as they help me beat this crud and get me neutered, I'll be ready to roll on out of here. You can go ahead and fill out a foster or adoption form in the interim. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Puppy

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

    Hey! Howdy! Whassup, world? Xena-the Warrior Princess-here! Bring. It. On. I am all Jack '| no, really, all Jack. I'm not a cuddle-on-the-couch kinda girl who likes to watch the world go by. I want to make history! I'm obsessed with playing ball (you can probably tell from my photos), am prey driven, love playing in the water and thought our latest JRT Fun Day (which includes racing, lure chasing, go-to-ground and barn hunting) was an absolute blast! Show me, show me, show me! I am also in my 'Terrier Twos,' which means I am full-throttle and lack some leash manners, gentleness, and focus for basic commands and structure. But, that's OK, ... (Read More)because I'm incredibly smart, treat-driven and want to learn new things that keep me active and happy. Once I find just the right Jack-savvy parent who knows how to harness all of this energy and keep me focused on events or activities, I am going to be the dream Jack Russell. I'm about 1 or 2 years old, heartworm negative, spayed and ready to go home with just the right individual or family, i.e. I am not for the a first-timer. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This little guy has been in the shelter for 7 months. He is only 1.5 yrs old, fully grown and meets weight requirements for the majority of communities/properties with weight restrictions for dogs. He is at or under 25 lbs. Saved from euthanasia at Animal Control in Nov 2014. Despite a constant stream of adopters looking for a small dog, no one wants Joey. The hopeful expectation in his eyes is forever changing to one of downcast disappointment as he is rejected every day by visitors.Big male dogs can scare him as can a large amount of strangers trying to simultaneously to interact with him. Well mannered, cat friendly, leash trained, ... (Read More)bouncing with joy at being among people and dogs. When he is 'checked out' by volunteers taking him for a hike or to be seen at an event he is in heaven. Then he is returned to his world of concrete and his little cot. That brief time of joy becomes part of his dreams in which being happy and being loved has no end.

    Abby and Angel are the cutest little babies ever. Their mama was a Jack Russel mix who showed up as a stray at someone's house. Since they didn't believe in spay and neutering their Pitbull... guess what happened??? And here they are now.. in need of a great home. They don't need to be rehomed together. They are very sweet and playful, great with other dogs, cats, kids and people. They had already their first round of puppy shots and will be spayed and micro chipped before they leave our rescue. Please e mail us if you would to fill out an application and potentially give one of those beautiful girls a home.

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey, folks! Decker here, and I'm not going to beat around the bush '| although I may pee on it! He-he. I'm a bit of a wild child! Getting me to sit still for photos was a challenge. I was much more interested in exploring and chasing after critters and passersby than focusing on treats and manners. That's not to say I didn't eventually give in, so there's a chance I could make a good agility, racing or flyball dog. I'm about 3-4 years old, but have the leash and social skills of a pup '| not to mention the energy of one! It's probably the reason my family moved and left me behind at the house to fend for my own. I ended up in a South ... (Read More)Carolina kill shelter, then at another rescue, who reached out to us for help in re-homing me. Mama Donna and the team are going to help me find the right Jack-savvy family to help me harness my energy and focus it on great things. I will need a new parent/family who has plenty of Jack experience and some training under their belts. In short, I am not for a first-time adopter. I absolutely love people, but can be a little assertive around other dogs. I am not aggressive; I just need some positive correction and direction in how to approach them. (Less)

    Howdy, folks! Sweetie Petey here. I've been here since the spring of 2015. I was at another rescue and came here to stay for a little while. They fell in love with me so much, they wanted to keep me. I love being loved on, so '| all righty, then! I'll stay until you find me a new place to play.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-19-00131JR (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Puppy

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

    Hey, there! Yep, you bet, I'm freakin' adorable! Two rescues in Oklahoma and Alabama told the folks here about me in the spring of 2015. I was surrendered to a shelter in Alabama because my owner couldn't keep me due to medical issues. The OK rescue was too far, and the AL rescue who pulled me has a hard time placing Jacks. We decided to tag-team and bring me here. Unfortunately, we all quickly realized that something was wrong with my back legs. X-rays were ran, and it appeared that I had been hit by a car and had a broken pelvis and knee socket issues. One of our awesome volunteers drove to our neighboring state and brought me to the ... (Read More)rescue (after a couple of fun foster days with Pumpkin, Susie and Chuckie!). Our vet prepared for surgery to help my legs, but first he ran some 'heavy-duty, uber-special' X-rays and noticed that I was already starting to heal on my own and, within just a couple of days, appeared to be walking and feeling much better. What can I say, I was healing myself! We decided that surgery would be more painful for me than doing this thing naturally. I may have a little arthritis later in life, but for now? I'm barely a year old, all puppy, and nothing can slow me down '| although they are having to make me do just that. I am on 10 weeks of mandatory rest and, as of today (May 18), I am a little more than halfway through. That would be an issue for most Jack Russells, but not for me. Why? I can literally rest in your arms or lie in your lap for hours. No, seriously - hours! Some of the volunteers just give up getting anything done on the weekends to rock with me on the porch '| and I love it! They want to make sure I go through my full recovery time and thoroughly heal before making me available for adoption. I also need to be 'tutored.' But I'm such a special boy, we wanted to give you a heads up that I'm here and I'll hopefully be ready for foster/adoption in early to mid-June. I am currently available for sponsorship, if you'd like to help pay for my vet bills. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-19-00116Lily Belle (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, humans. I'm Lily Belle and I'm probably one of the best-kept secrets at rescue. In fact, a lot of the volunteers don't even know about me. I arrived last year with several other dogs who were dumped outside the kill shelter by a backyard breeder. The other dogs were fairly socialized or adjusted to strange humans; I was not. I was terrified of everyone and hid in my doghouse every time anyone tried to come near me. I needed to be treated for heartworms, though, so I was lucky enough to land a place at the 'senior/foster center' with Floyd and the others while I adjusted and became more confident. It's taken me awhile to get used to ... (Read More)everything - and I mean everything, from walking on a leash to learning how to be a 'normal' dog. We were never given that opportunity at our puppy mill. I think I may be ready to meet the right person now, though. If you are willing to be patient and love me, I may/will be doing the same with you. We will just need to meet and see. Although I'm shy, I'm also very sweet, quiet and playful once you get to know me. My foster family says I'm no problem at all. I'm about 2 years old, around 13 lbs., crate-trained, housebroken, and get along with other dogs! Not all of those dogs at rescue can say that! (Less)

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

    This is a boy we rescued from animal control. He was going to be euthanized and we just didn't want that to happen. We have 4 dogs, so it's not possible to keep this guy. We also have cats and he wants to chase them. He is very gentle and sweet and loyal. He will stay in the yard and not wander off. He likes to get attention and follows us where ever we go in the yard. He is crate trained and likes his crate. What drew us to him was that he reminds us of a rescue we adopted with the same personality traits that turned out to be our sweet, loving, cuddly companion. This guy deserves a chance for a new start. He is very shy at first ... (Read More)but after the first week, he has turned into a happpy dog. When I sit on the ground, he crawls right into my lap. I don't think he has ever been in a car, as he was scared and crawled right into my lap on our first trip home. He is non aggressive and very quiet. The only time we've heard him bark is at our cats. I think he would do best in a non-cat home. He is 38 lbs with a sweet face and long skinny tail. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Georgia has been a member of our family most of her life, she recently lost her daddy and has been extremely depressed. We are hoping a perfect family would like to help us bring this girl's spirits back up. She isn't a kid hater but she has never been subject to children, she wouldn't care too much for young children, but older children we see her fitting in with just fine. She isn't a typical JRT as she does not spring board in place, though she is a champ catching Frisbees out of the air. She has hiked most of the Appalachian mountains when we lived in Greenville, SC and is excellent company for long walks.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, y'all! Little Penny here. I was at another rescue, but decided I wanted to chase some chickens and, well, that didn't work out very well. They decided it would be best to move me here, where I don't have so many irresistible opportunities to chase prey '| but, hey, I bet I'd be great at barn hunting! I really want to be in a house, though, so it would be great if we could quickly get me into a foster or forever home. I love people and am not crazy about this 1010 yard of mine. I'm a strong, healthy (could use a pound or two) young girl about 2-3 years old, am heartworm negative, spayed and ready to roll. I get along with most ...

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, peeps! My name is Andrea %BD'%BD| although they have been calling me 'Happy' after a funny misunderstanding on my Facebook shelter thread %BD'%BD| and 'Snowball' because, look at me! You can refer to me as any of those. I was scheduled to be put down after being at Macon-Bibb County Animal Welfare since early December. My Beagle sister, Gin Gin, and I losts our human in November %BD'%BD| then Gin Gin got adopted and I losts her, too. Lots of people rallied together, posted pledges and, on a Tuesday and Wednesday when no one really had time, stitched together an escape plan for me to come here. Somehow, someway, everyone ... (Read More)made it happen (during a time when they really can't take any more dogs here) and now I'm safe, sound and getting ready for my new life. I even had time to stop by the vet. He says I'm about 2 years old, I look great overall, he gave me all of my shots, and found me to be heartworm negative (woo-hoo!). I can be a little nervous around people at first, but am easily won over by a treat. I'm part Doxie, so you knows I gots moxie! I miss my sister and am very interested in the other dogs here. It would be great if we could get me back into a home with another canine companion to call my own. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, folks! Flash here, and I was a pleasant surprise. A couple of Team Russell members came to Clayton County A/C to evaluate another Jack for another rescue in early December. I hadn't been posted online or shared, so they weren't expecting to see me there. Sur-prise! They took photos and some video of me to network me, but they sent them to Mama Donna first. That was all the networking I needed. She took one look at me, fell in love with the 'kiss' on my forehead, and that was that. I was rescued! I have a little bit o'Whippet/Greyhound in me, so they called me 'Flash.' I am a food-motivated boy who enjoys some independent outdoor ... (Read More)time. (What Jack doesn't?) I live up to my name and am as fast as Flash. I'd love to find someone who is active and loves to run. I can be a little protective if other dogs come too close to my crate, but am fine with them otherwise. I'm young (about 1-2 years old) and up-to-date on all of my shots. I am slightly heartworm positive, but am on slow-kill and should be just fine. Please give me love! (Less)

I just arrived at rescue and still need to be properly vetted, but we wanted everyone to know I am safe and sound here '| and am an absolute joy.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
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.

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 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)

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: Young Adult

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 (mixed w/smooth, probably one parent of each), is 100% JRT, and gets along well with other dogs. A bit cat-aggressive, as most JRTs aren't fond of them, but still respects that some outweigh him! Sweet and playful but can be nervous about meeting new people and sometimes shows submissive urination. About 3yrs old and 17lbs. 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 ... (Read More)reassured. Adopter needs to recognize that Nearly all JRTs are EXCELLENT climbers and diggers who were bred to ferret out and follow prey to great lengths, so MUST NOT BE LEFT OUTSIDE UNSUPERVISED. He is neutered, chipped, current on shots, has converted to heartworm-negative, on monthly flea/tick & HW preventative, 90% crate-trained, needs LOTS of exercise/activity, both physical & mental. Knows how to sit, stay, & shake a paw. Eventually, he'd love to have a dog playmate to interact with. Heidi (fox terrier mix, now adopted) had been very attached to him, so he's open to another pairing, but still wants his space.

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

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Sasha is about 4-5yrs old, a little 28lb cutie w/big deep brown eyes, in need of a terrier-savvy home that also loves the beagle half's impressive 'voice.' Her original parents were kind & loving, but never socialized her with 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, in sum, she needs a dog-experienced adopter who speaks kindly to her (this makes her roll on her back ... (Read More)for a tummy rub & permit petting) but also fearlessly assertive in a positive way, so she doesn't feel that she needs to try to assume leadership status, which terrifies her. She's rather up in the air about kids; in her past life, she belonged to a very sweet 8yr old girl whom she worshiped & daily waited for her return from school, and she didn't trouble the family's newborn a bit; but she seems very upset by little boys who race around the aisles at the pet store during adoptions. Therefore we'd recommend older (teen) kids if any in the home. Now she ADORES her foster dad & follows him everywhere, but is still fearful of a few men. What she craves is a deep bond w/one or two adult family members that'll last the rest of her life, and to whom she can devote her absolute loyalty. When guests visit, she would definitely prefer to be in her safe spot (roomy crate) in a bedroom while they're around, 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 mentally while you're away, and long, interesting walks to get sufficient exercise & outdoorsy time--always on a leash or she'll run off! MUST NOT be full-time outside as she truly 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 SNUGGLEBUG once she knows she can trust you. Spayed, wormed, deflea'd, current on shots, microchipped, heartworm-negative, on monthly HW and flea/tick preventative. Requested adoption donation $125 against vet bills, no checks accepted. Please leave a message on VM, 678-MEOW-NAP, or email adoptanewpet@gmail.com for more info or an application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-07-14-00080Rocky (male)

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)

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00143Slick (male)

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)

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)

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.
