Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Butch is white with red spots. 15-20 lbs. as he is mixed with a Jack Russel. Loves to cuddle and expects to sleep with his human. Can be territorial in his own home. Outside potty trained as well as paper trained. Has been raised with children and cats. He has been raised with his son and the mother of his son. Very sweet, loves to sit with and sleep with his human. Would be preferable if he could stay with his son Desmond who is 7 years old. My only reason for seeking a new home is the fact that our home is in foreclosure and I am unable to take him with me.

    Jack Russell/Black Labrador Mix Male dog 8.5 years old. He weighs around 25-30 pounds. My husband and I got Cooper when he was 6 months old and since then, we've started a family. Cooper is not a mean dog at all, but we feel he is not happy like he used to be since we started having kids 4 years ago. We had another baby in November. He likes to interact when other people come over, but it seems that with us he feels like he was replaced and favors to be around my husband more than anyone. We feel he would like to interact more with adults or older kids. We want someone to give him the love and attention he needs and deserves. He is a ... (Read More)trained dog and has no accidents in the house. He likes when he does receive attention from adults and loves to relax. This has been a tough decision for us, but we really feel that it is the best decision. Please contact me with serious inquiries. (Less)

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.
