Rescue Me ID: 15-04-27-00141Fritz (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    FRITZ is a 1.5 year old male terrier mix. This handsome man is a total love and a super sweet guy. Fritz loves the company of other dogs, loves to cuddle, plays fetch, knows basic commands, is being crate trained and polishing up his house training. Fritz would make a great family addition. Because Fritz is a playful terrier, we feel he has yet to learn his boundaries with cats. He is in a foster home with a cat now and he is learning not all cats want to play! If you are interested in Fritz please email bowwowrevolution@gmail.com!

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Quasar came to us from a high kill shelter in Kentucky. He is an amazing young boy that is fitting in well at his foster home. Here is what they have to say bout him: Quasar is a very sweet dog, he would be a happy addition to any family. He has made friends with our dog and enjoys being around children. He is very affectionate and playful. He is crate trained and enjoys resting there when he wants a nap. His previous owners must have housebroken him and he will only have an accident if you miss him waiting by the door!! We are practicing the 'sit command' but he prefers to stand on his hind legs!!! Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash ... (Read More)or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Dottie has had quite a sad life, she was given to a shelter early in life, and at age 3 was adopted by a nice couple. Unfortunately 3 yrs ago she lost her male owner and 1 yr. ago lost her female owner. We took her in but it's not the appropriate fit for our house. She's sweet and loves to cuddle but needs some training, time and commitment due to years of lack of structure and discipline. Seeking a better, appropriate life for this sweetheart.

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