Rescue Me ID: 16-10-03-00493Harley (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Harley is a 14 year young jack that my wife and I tried to find a home for. A woman on Facebook contacted my wife after seeing pictures of our Jacks on her Facebook and asked if we would take her. We already have 3 but knew her uncle wanted a Jack so we got her for him, but unfortunately after a few weeks it is not working out due to Harley being a little too aggressive with a chihuahua puppy that they have. The original owner said she could not take her back and would take her to the humane society for us, but knowing her age we know that they would put her down so we want to find her a home. She is very sweet and quite energetic and ... (Read More)athletic for her age, she doesn't seem like a senior dog at all! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-13-00153Lucky Doo (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Adoption fee is my way of determining if adopter is dedicated to adoption and not a person trying out dog ownership. Will negotiate depending on distance. If adopted would like updates from time to time. Lucky received his name for being lucky that he was rescued from a unwanted home and being dumped on a major roadway. Also, it was lucky that I was the one who received him because I had just gone through a serial assault and this tiny puppy gave me the ability to sleep and feel safe in my own skin. Lucky Doors is an exceptionally smart dog he has always went outside to use the restroom, learned other commands within days like sit, stay, ... (Read More)and lay using hand motions. At 7 1/2 year old he still gets puppy playful and will play ball (as long as they are green), actually giving it back without chase. But, will also lay on his bed as older dogs do when told. He loves all animals, including cats. If he knows that the other animals is ours, or accepted as a friendly he instantly has a friend. For lack of a better word he tolerates children, he instinctively knows easy for young children, and play for older ones. We taught him to not rough house so a child can pull tails, try to ride him, or grab his tongue and Lucky will not bite or be rough back. The only time he has growled or barred teeth at my 3yr old is when James stepped on his paw and broke a nail. Of which I'm sure we can all agree we would have done the same when inflicted with pain. Lucky Doors loves his people and all the people he meets. He somehow know property boundaries, loves to explore his space, run, more space is better for this lovable guy. Luckyso only downside is that if he thinks you have been gone too long he will flip his food bowl and hide the food. He has also on those times found a piece of mail or paper to shredHe has on occasion shown his Jack Russell side with amazing escapes of leaping a fence, or finding the smallest whole to squeeze thru. He also likes a variety in food, so once every so many months he will decide he no longer like the food and we have to switch flavors or brands being used. Season changes come with a slight skin irritation that cortisone spray or benadryl clears right up. He is my dog and he is very wanted but circumstances of black mold and other problems in my home have caused a need to move and we haven't been able to find a friend or family to keep him until we can find a home for our family. This is leaving Lucky staying an unsafe health wise home by himself and essentially homeless. We love our Lucky Doors but he deserves better than the situation we are in. I'd love to find temporary housing until we are settled but I don't know how long that could be. So a fur-ever home is great with the right family, or person. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00205Jasper (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jasper just turned 5 years old but has struggled for attention since twin toddlers came into the home. He is very loving and loyal, but is intimidated by small children and large dogs. Very smart when proper time is given to train him. He is up on all vaccines and neutered. Only getting rid of him because we do not have the time to devote to him like we used to. Looking for a loving family that can give him the attention he deserves.
