Rescue Me ID: 14-12-14-00288Saki (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Saki just turned 9 years old in December 2014. We have had Saki since he was 8 weeks old. Unfortunately with our growing family, living in the city, and both parents working, Saki is not getting the attention he deserves. Our absence from home M-F has been causing some anxiety. Saki is great with kids and a very good dog, just in need of more attention. At this point we just want to find him a good home outside of a shelter.

He is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He has been in a kennel for awhile waiting to be a part of a family. He had used piddle pads when in the house. He is crate trained and very quiet. He sometimes thinks he's a big dog when meeting other dogs but soon as he is use to them he loves to play and plays great with both ... (Read More)male and female dogs who are also playful. He is very happy to see children. He really doesn't know any commands but would love someone who would like to teach him some fun tricks. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

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)

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.

Jack Russell
lnteresting Jack Russell Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The dog Eddie on the T.V. show Frasier is a Jack Russell Terrier. A Jack Russell Terrier saved five New Zealand children from being attacked by two pit bulls in 2007. 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.
