Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I need to re-home my 7 year old jack russell mix. I've had her since she was a few months old, but I am leaving the country and I can't take her with me. Sara is very affectionate, well behaved and a little spoiled. She gets along well with other dogs but she loves human company best and will gladly endure cuddles, smooches and fingernail painting as long as she can be near you. A house full of children is her heaven. Sara is spayed and current on her shots. She has no health issues. If interested, I would require a small re-homing fee, refrences and information regarding your living situation. I am moving end of August and if she is not ...

    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.
