Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cali is a 3 year old JRT from a breeder in California. We had a JRT before her who was attacked and killed by another dog, so we knew what we were getting, personality wise. Sadly, even though we got her at 8 weeks, she has always shown signs of fear/aggression- and as she got older, it was mostly directed at my children, and they have always been kind to her. We have tried extensive postive reinforcement clicker/treat training and medication, and she is extremely smart and very trainable. In fact she could be a superstar in nose work-we took several classes. But it didn't help her fearfulness. Cali needs a quiet home without children. ... (Read More)She is super cute and sweet to adult people she likes. Barks at strangers but then settles down. Please help our family find her a suitable home. We are very sad because we love her!

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-25-00173Callee (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Callee is an affectionate, silly girl full of love!! Upon first meeting, she may be shy, but given some time and love, she will come running right into your arms! She loves to snuggle and enjoys playing with her foster brother. She may be tiny,but she is tough! She has fun keeping up with his running and wrestling skills. It would be great if she could live in a home with another small-medium sized dog who loves to play. Callee has mastered some basic commands such as sit, (lay) down, and come when called. Her leash walking skills have improved tremendously. She has proven to be an angel, when not crated, and has the run of the house. ... (Read More)Currently, she doesn't have any accidents in the house and can be left alone for up to 5 hrs. When meeting new dogs, she is cautious and timid, especially the bigger dogs. When given time to adjust, she begins to relax and while she will not play with the big dogs, she will slowly interact with them. She has not had much exposure to her feline friends, but when she has been around them, she let them go about their business and just watched them. Since she loves to play and explore outside, a fenced in yard is highly recommended. Since she is a happy little girl, Callee can get overly excited and will jump. Her foster mom is working on this, but for this reason, it would be recommended that Callee goes into a home without young children. If you are interested in meeting Callee, please go to our website www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com to learn about our adoption process and fill out an application. (Less)

    Hello, this is Mazzy, my two year old beautiful Jack Russell terrier. She is needing to find a new forever home...my health has deteriorated to the point that I cannot meet her exercise needs, and hospital stays for myself and having to board her are adding up.

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.
