    Monkey is an adorable, smart and playful, two-year-old, 15-pound, male Boston Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Little Monkey was rescued off the streets of Kentucky, and was transferred to a foster home in Chicago. He is learning all about city and family-living. He loves cuddling on couches and playing ball.

Spinks does not do well with other dogs or children, but is very loyal and loving toward mature family members. He loves playing in the yard and going for walks, except in incliment or cold weather. Great watchdog, as he barks when people come over, but not in an aggressive fashion. Spinks loves to burrow under ... (Read More)blankets and sleep with you and loves stuffed animals. Up to date on all shots & has all crates & accessories, just needs a loving home. My senior mother is suffering health issues and can no longer care for him. (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.
