Posted Breed: Beagle / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). VOLUNTEERS : We need transport drivers who can do legs between WV and New England! Driver Application: More Info: Please submit an adoption application if you would like to adopt me! Contact us: Rudy and his brother Willie came to ARF as brothers who were bonded. They have been together since they were puppies, and they are now 7 1/2 years old, so naturally they are used to each other's company. But since they have been with ARF for a while, they are learning to be more independent. Their entire world changed when they were relinquished by an owner whose own world had fallen apart, so it took some time for Rudy and Willie to adjust. But they shouldn't have to spend the rest of their lives without homes, and we believe now that they could go to separate homes. They have been altered and had their shots and seem very healthy. They love to go for walks when volunteers can take them. They like children but don't prefer to be picked up. Willie and Rudy have become a little chubby, to put it mildly, and could use some weight-control food. They probably weigh 25 pounds now! Rudy and Willie have attended adoptathons and birthday parties for children, and though they did fine and gave their best "give me a second chance" look, they didn't get adopted. And they wait. Will someone get these small dogs into a loving home? ------------------------------------- Animal Rights Fur-Ever is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all-volunteer animal rescue located in Ripley, West Virginia.

More About Jack-A-Bee Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
