|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-28-00626Lance (male)|
Lance - Arriving Soon - Taking Applications Now! Lance - Beagle/Jack Russel mix, about 30 lbs. Is said to be sweet and loving and gets along great with other dogs! He is available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets him when he arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay his head until he finds his forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take him to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a foster application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-27-00788Henry (male)|
My name is Henry and I am a 9 month old puppy. I have a lot of energy and need to be trained. I love cuddling, long walks, and playing hide and go seek. I am looking for a family with a back yard who is willing to train me and walk me daily. I am a really good cuddler and I sleep through the night. I am potty trained but still have a few accidents when I want to mark my territory. I just can't help it; I need to be neutered. I have a silky coat like a papillon and I love vertical high jumps like a jack Russell. I am currently eating purina puppy chow. My owner is moving and can't keep me anymore but wants to find me the best home. I am very lovable, playful, and loyal. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-24-00226Theo (male)|
Theo is an active, happy, friendly and bouncy, eight-month-old, 14-pound, male purebred rough coat Jack Russell Terrier Puppy looking for a loving guardian. This boy is utterly adorable. People stop us on our walks to admire and play with him. He is all love and kisses, has a larger-than-life personality and energy to spare. Sadly, Theo lost his home when his mom was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Theo had been found wandering stray multiple times during his puppyhood, but this last time his guardian signed relinquishment papers realizing she couldn't properly care for him. The neighborhood rejoiced because they feared something bad would happen to him on his joy runs. Theo is a super smart puppy who already knows the command sit (at least a quick touch down) and takes treats gently from your fingers. He loves to learn new tricks and loves to play fetch or chew on his bones and toys! He also loves walks and runs and greats everyone he meets with a happy roll, jump and kiss. He does take breaks on his walks (for about three seconds) and relaxes with his legs straight out in a frog-like manner. And, then he bounces back! Theo has been doing fantastic with his housebreaking and is crate-trained. Due to his terrier nature, I don't think I'd recommend him for homes with small pets like cats, rabbits, etc. But he loves other dogs but they don't appear to understand his energetic and sometimes noisy greeting! Theo is neutered, vaccinated, on monthly heartworm preventative and treated with de-wormer and flea preventative. He is looking for someone who has the time to invest in Theo's daily exercise, training and love. To meet and possibly adopt Theo, please contact me directly at email@example.com or 773-777-2891. His adoption fee of $350 benefits rescued pets. He's currently living with me in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-16-00433Skip (male)|
Skip is 11 and loves to walk on a leash, play ball, and take naps on his ottoman. He's in excellent health - just had his teeth cleaned - but is slowing down from his high-energy days. Puts himself to bed in his kennel and has never had an accident in the house. Is a runner so he needs a fenced yard. Lives w/3 cats and tolerates them well. Can be wary of young children. Needs a home before August 7th when his owners are moving to a smaller residence w/no pets allowed.

He is gentle, follows you around, sits in your lap, sleeps in your bed, does not run away and barks very little. I work so many hours he does pee in the house. He growls when I wake him up in the morning.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-05-00296Riley (male)|
Riley would do best in a home with adults and he is fine with older children (~16 and up). He would prefer a fenced in yard because he loves to run and explore. He also would do best with someone who loves to go on walks. He really enjoys affection and belly rubs. He would do best in a home without other dogs.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-06-15-00070Patches (male)|
Very energetic and sweet Jack Russell. Good with kids. Will mark his territory if there are other animals. Jumps, but can be managed within seconds. Loves to cuddle. Loves to play tug of war. Loves running in the backyard. Home with a fence is preferable. Doesn't do well on a leash, but with a little practice he can be. He will pretty much do anything for a treat. Very smart. Can be a flight risk, but he's so smart he knows where he lives and will come back. Needs a home where he can live out his years in a calm environment. He growls a lot, but it's his way of communicating...You just have to listen. Needs a home ASAP due to personal reasons. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-06-12-00409Murphy (male)|
Hello! My name is Murphy and I have been a loyal family member for 8 years! I get alone with most everyone but can be shy whenI first meet people. But once I get to know you I have no problem showing you just how much I love you. I am even known for my hugs! I get alone with children and other dogs, though older children and dogs would be best. I do need a family that can devote time to me and can be sensitive to my imperfections. If you think you would be interested in adopting me, please call my current mommy! Love, Murphy

|Rescue Me ID: 15-02-28-00410Dottie (female)|
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 and loves to cuddle but needs some training, time and commitment due to years of lack of structure and discipline. Seeking a better, appropriate life for this sweetheart.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-11-09-00427Eddie (male)|
Eddie is an adorable, energetic and very active 9 year old JRT. He has a loving personality and loves to be cuddled and sleep with you under the covers. He also will give you hugs and kisses to show you his love for you. He is good with kids and other dogs. He is house trained and crate trained. He needs to go to a home that has a fenced in yard. We also have papers for Eddie. The only reason Eddie is looking for a new home is that our family is under going some medical issues that have caused us not to have the time or energy to give to our friend. It is with a sad heart that we have to look for a new home for our beloved family member. Please give Eddie a chance to be the loving dog he is to you and your family. (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.
