Rescue Me ID: 15-02-28-00410Dottie (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    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 but needs lots of training, time and commitment due to years of lack of structure and discipline. Seeking a better, appropriate life for this sweetheart.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Gunther is an adorable 10 year old Jack Russell terrier mix with a hilarious underbite! Gunther came to ACL as a matted mess who was running stray, but he's blossomed with the love of a great foster home. Gunther is good with other dogs, loves to cuddle up next to you to sleep, and loves squeaky toys! He's a mellow older man who's completely housebroken and comfortable in a home environment. Because he's older, he probably wouldn't love a house with young, active children, but he would do well in a home with older children and a laidback attitude. Gunther is happy and healthy, and he still has several great years of life! Can you offer him a ... (Read More)loving retirement home? Give Animal Care League a call to set up an introduction.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This has been the toughest decision my husband and I have ever had to make together. Tyson came into our lives mid-september. He is simply the cutest, smartest little boy. He was a rescue, and we could not have been happier to have brought him home with us. We have another female Jack Russell that has been the queen of the household since the day we got her (she is now 4, almost 5). Everything was great for the first month, but as Tyson has gotten older, they have been pushing eachothers buttons, and it has become clear that neither of them are compatible with other dogs. He is honestly the greatest dog when our other one is not around (for ... (Read More)the time being, she is staying at our parents). Tears roll down my face as I post this, because we did not want it to come down to this. We are very very serious about finding him the right home, and we will do whatever it takes to do so. (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.

lnteresting Jack Russell Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The dog Eddie on the T.V. show Frasier is a Jack Russell Terrier. A Jack Russell Terrier saved five New Zealand children from being attacked by two pit bulls in 2007. Jack Russell Terriers are descended from fox terriers bred by Rev. John Russell in England in the early 1800s. Rev. Russell's Terrier, Trump, was depicted in a painting commissioned by Edward VII, Prince of Wales, who was a friend of the parson.
