Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    TinkerBell 15 lbs Terrier Lab Mix 12-14 weeks old. TinkerBell is a sweet pup once she gets to know you. She does shy away from new people at first but soon warms up to everybody she meets. She came from Tennessee with 3 other siblings and has been fostered with 2 of them. Her brother was adopted a week ago and she now shares a dog pen with just one sibling in the foster home. The foster home has 2 other dogs and Tink gets along with all of them. She does try to place herself as head of the pack something we are trying to break her if but as an only dog she would probably cater to her humans for affection. When she's done playing she ... (Read More)likes to snuggle with her people. Housebreaking is ongoing and and we are learning to watch her signals to go out. Sometimes we miss it and she has an accident but they are happening less often during the second week at the foster. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

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

    Hello! I'm recently separated, and between my work schedule and now my children's sports schedules, unfortunately I don't have enough time for Cody. At least not as much as he deserves. He needs a big fenced in yard to run around in to finish the rest of his days. He obviously has a lot of energy, but will also calm down and cuddle with you when he winds down. I really don't want to let him go, but I think it will be the best thing for him

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-08-00316Gussie (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Delightful Gussie is the absolute definition of 'mutt' - all the best qualities from many different breeds mixed together in one adorable package! This little muscly dynamo is clearly Jack Russell or Rat Terrier, and she likely has some mix of Staffordshire Terrier in her to give her that cute stocky body. She only weighs 25 pounds, but she has the personality of a dog 4 times her size! Gussie is about 18 months old, and she came to ACL from a local animal control. She's clearly been used for puppies in the past, and at her young age this is just so unfair! Luckily Gussie doesn't let anything get her down - she's a high energy, happy go ... (Read More)lucky, wiggly jigglebutt who just wants to party all day every day! Gussie is a little unmannered, and she responds best to firm, confident, calm leadership. With a more laissez-faire owner, she can get pushy and bossy. She needs an experienced owner willing to help her work through some of her teenaged nuttiness and relax into the sweet girl she's meant to be! Gussie loves other dogs and would do great with another rough and tumble canine companion. Because of Gussie's high energy, interested adopters should email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to set up a time to meet her and discuss adoption! (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. 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. Jack Russell Terriers are considered by some to be the most intelligent dog breed.
