Posted Breed: Border Terrier (short coat). Grandview/Belton, Missouri LOOKING FOR A GREAT HOME!!!!!! Freddy is a Border Terrier (black and cream colored). He is 10 years old and had all of his shots in February of this year. He was originally adopted from Wayside Waif s by a friend of mine's aunt, and after she passed away, he had spent the past year with another friend of mine that just passed away. He has a microchip and weighs about 36 pounds. Great personality, and attaches himself to his owner very quickly. He does need a place with a fence, and due to his age would be best to have limited number of stairs in the house. He is good with other dogs of all sizes (standard Pomeranian that he grew up with, 3 bulldogs, a Brittany and a maltese). I don't think he has been around cats. Please message me (https://www.facebook.com/trish.blegen?fref=photo) or plblegen@yahoo.com if you are interested in giving Freddy the home he deserves - he's very confused right now. Thanks!

More About Border Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Drexel, MO
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Oliver is hyper active and I mean HYPER ACTIVE! He is sometimes puppy-like playful but that is not the norm. His normal is bonkers, running and playing and growling and knocking Buddy over, zooming across the yard, running around the dumpster and the cars and the wood pile. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but he doesn't have a calm one either. When he goes into full on crazy mode, we take him outside and let him run some of it off (it doesn't work) and if he is still crazy or sometimes worse, then we put him in his kennel and he immediately calms down and is asleep shortly thereafter. Once rested, he's ready to go again. He is absolutely sweet, but he has LOTS of energy. Oliver would not be good around small children because he will knock them down and it will hurt. End of story. He is good with other dogs, but again, small ones or old ones would not hold up well. He wants to play with cats and will chase them. The cats do not appreciate his exuberance. Most of them run into hiding. Oliver is hard on a leash, even with the new, fancy side clipping leash. For a while he was fantastic with it but quickly learned how that one works and now he throws his shoulders into it and will muscle his way through so we have to switch it up to try to keep him off of his game. He is unbelievably strong for his size and I loop my end of his long plastic covered steel rope leash around my belt to make sure I can hang on to him. The Missus weighs little to nothing and he gives her a quite a workout. Oliver likes to jump and he is very good at it. I am not sure the average four foot chain link fence would contain him. He also LOVES to dig and will go under that fence in two minutes or less. The hot wire fence for cattle didn't even phase him. He made four passes through it. Out in out in. Zap! Zap! Zap! Zap! with nary a yelp or whimper. Given the chance, he'd go through it again without thinking twice. I won't even touch that fence with a stick. He can squeeze through a cat door with ease so don't think that will deter him. [shaking head] Not even. We have a metal gate up to section him off and when it's closed, he hurls himself against it and knocks it open. BAM! "Hi there, it's me!" So, if this is the kind of dog you think you might be interested in adopting, let us know. Let us know your experience in dealing with Jack Russell Terriers and how you think Oliver would fit into your family or zoo or asylum. Adopting Oliver is a long term commitment because he is young. Provided he doesn't get away and get hit by a car or eaten by a bear, he will be around for a very long time. We love this little critter bunches and gobs but he does have some special needs. Can you meet those needs? Imagine managing a day care for a dozen three year olds for the next ten to fifteen years and that might give you an idea.
