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)

Jack Russell    Age: Adult

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

    Fiona is a lovable, energetic, well-trained and playful, nine-year-old, 22-pound, female wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier looking for a loving guardian. Fiona gives plenty of kisses and tail wags. It might take her a couple days to warm up to new people, but once she does - she is your very best friend. She is perfectly housebroken, great on walks and lovely in the car. Sadly, Fiona was brought to the vet to be euthanized when her human mom was admitted to a nursing home. When the vet tech shaved her leg in preparation for the euthanasia, Fiona gave her kisses and wagged her tail. So, the vet tech stopped '| and asked the woman who ... (Read More)brought her what was wrong with the dog. When she was told the woman just didn't want to deal with her when she had to bring her mom to a nursing home, she asked if she could help find her a new home instead. And, that is the way it should be! Fiona is a very healthy senior; full of energy, loves to play fetch with a squeaky ball, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly heartworm prevention. She even had a recent dental and exam with a veterinarian cardiologist. She is an all-around healthy senior. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued dogs of Famous Fido. To meet and possibly adopt Fiona, please contact Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305. (Less)

    Hello, this is Mazzy, my two year old beautiful Jack Russell terrier.

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.
