Rescue Me ID: 16-09-15-00367Margo (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    If you're ideal treat is a chocolate-covered pretzel, Margo is your perfect dog! She's sweet and salty in equal measure - in other words, she's a terrier! This little Jack Russell lady is loyal, super affectionate, and will stick to your side like glue. If you're reading a book, Margo will be right beside you. If you're going for a walk, Margo is coming along! She's a feisty little lady, too, who likes to tell you what's what from time to time - trust us, it's very charming! Margo is two years old, and she arrived at ACL as a stray. She lived happily in foster care for a couple of weeks, and her foster mom reports that she's a very sweet ... (Read More)lady who does very well in the house. She'd love a home where she can cuddle and snuggle with people all day, and then go for walks in the evening! Margo is a Jack Russell, through and through, so she can be a loudmouth. She'll need a freestanding home so that her barkiness doesn't bother the neighbors. She'll do well with children 10 and up, but her dream home has just a couple people who she can devote her whole heart to! (Less)

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)

Macy is shy with new people but once she trusts you, she will not leave your side. She loves to play with toys and run around the yard chasing balls and bringing them back to her foster mom for praise. If you would like to meet Macy, please ...

There is nothing wrong with her medically...she can be a little bit high energy, as Jack Russell's are and will be happy with as many walks as you can give her. She will come with all of her toys; she loves to chew, and a free kennell to keep her in when you're away. I am ...

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.
