Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00541Teddy (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Teddy is a new rescue. He was sitting at animal control terrified, no one claimed him, tagged him, and he was too scared for them to adopt out to someone so he was most likely going to be euthanized. We thought he was about a 30 pound dog from the photo we seen. I love scruffy terriers and we rescued him. When we arrived he was a tiny 10 pound dog shivering in the corner on cold concrete, most of his coat gone from fleas. He was terrified, but by the time we got home he was nudging my hand to keep petting him. He will be neutered before adoption, is about 1 to 2 years old, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and has been treated for ... (Read More)fleas. He's a happy little guy and gets along great with the other dogs and cats. He has wanted to mark in the house, but neutering, housebreaking, and not having female dogs around will help that. We have him wear a belly band while he is learning, which is a simple solution and he is crated when not being watched. He is a great little guy and his personality is really starting to show. He is built like a poodle with long legs and a thin build, but has scruffy coat. Not sure of his breed. May be part yorkie too. We required a vet clinic phone number you use currently, or if no current pets your last vets number to call for a reference prior to adopting. (Less)

    Malcom is a really nice, friendly Boy! He gets along great with a wide variety of dogs at his foster home, and seems to be good with his cat buddies too!

Children 5 and over would be best as he will try to play with hands and fingers. He is crate trained and will sleep all night in one, but would really like to be in his peoples room. ...

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack is an adorable, energetic and very active, six-year-old, 20-pound, male tri-color Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle-mix looking for a loving guardian. Poor Jack was given up to Chicago Animal Care and Control when his family was moving. Lucky for him, Underdog Rescue was able to find him a loving foster home rather than a shelter cage. Jack has proven to be housebroken and crate-trained, and knows the commands sit, sit pretty and is gentle taking treats. Jack is great with people and with other dogs. He is doing beautifully with three dogs of varying sizes and shapes in his foster home! Jack loves to chase and fetch tennis balls and other ... (Read More)toys, and enjoys frolicking in the yard with the other dogs. He also relaxes in the home and loves to snuggle with his humans. He would love a home with a yard in which to run and play! To meet and possibly adopt Jack, please contact anna@Underdog-Rescue.com or 847-529-5959. His adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued dogs of Underdog Rescue. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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.

    The dog Eddie on the T.V. show Frasier is a Jack Russell Terrier. 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.
