Rescue Me ID: 15-07-28-00626Lance (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Lance - Arriving Soon - Taking Applications Now! Lance - Beagle/Jack Russel mix, about 30 lbs. Is said to be sweet and loving and gets along great with other dogs! He is available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets him when he arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay his head until he finds his forever home. We ... (Read More)also require that you have the ability to take him to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for a foster application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Henry and I am a 9 month old puppy. I have a lot of energy and need to be trained. I love cuddling, long walks, and playing hide and go seek. I am looking for a family with a back yard who is willing to train me and walk me daily. I am a really good cuddler and I sleep through the night. I am potty trained but still have a few accidents when I want to mark my territory. I just can't help it; I need to be neutered. I have a silky coat like a papillon and I love vertical high jumps like a jack Russell. I am currently eating purina puppy chow. My owner is moving and can't keep me anymore but wants to find me the best home. I am very ... (Read More)lovable, playful, and loyal. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-24-00226Theo (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Puppy

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

    Theo is an active, happy, friendly and bouncy, eight-month-old, 14-pound, male purebred rough coat Jack Russell Terrier Puppy looking for a loving guardian. This boy is utterly adorable. People stop us on our walks to admire and play with him. He is all love and kisses, has a larger-than-life personality and energy to spare. Sadly, Theo lost his home when his mom was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Theo had been found wandering stray multiple times during his puppyhood, but this last time his guardian signed relinquishment papers realizing she couldn't properly care for him. The neighborhood rejoiced because they feared something bad ... (Read More)would happen to him on his joy runs. Theo is a super smart puppy who already knows the command sit (at least a quick touch down) and takes treats gently from your fingers. He loves to learn new tricks and loves to play fetch or chew on his bones and toys! He also loves walks and runs and greats everyone he meets with a happy roll, jump and kiss. He does take breaks on his walks (for about three seconds) and relaxes with his legs straight out in a frog-like manner. And, then he bounces back! Theo has been doing fantastic with his housebreaking and is crate-trained. Due to his terrier nature, I don't think I'd recommend him for homes with small pets like cats, rabbits, etc. But he loves other dogs but they don't appear to understand his energetic and sometimes noisy greeting! Theo is neutered, vaccinated, on monthly heartworm preventative and treated with de-wormer and flea preventative. He is looking for someone who has the time to invest in Theo's daily exercise, training and love. To meet and possibly adopt Theo, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. His adoption fee of $350 benefits rescued pets. He's currently living with me in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hello! My name is Murphy and I have been a loyal family member for 8 years! I get alone with most everyone but can be shy whenI first meet people. But once I get to know you I have no problem showing you just how much I love you. I am even known for my hugs! I get alone with children and other dogs, though older children and dogs would be best. I do need a family that can devote time to me and can be sensitive to my imperfections. If you think you would be interested in adopting me, please call my current mommy! Love, Murphy

    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.
