Jack Russell Terrier

Overview: A strong, active, little working Terrier of great character with flexible body of medium length. His smart movement matches his keen expression. Tail docking is optional and the coat may be smooth, rough or broken.
Breed Group: Terrier
Weight (lbs): 14-18
Height (in): 10-12
Colors: White should predominate (i.e., must be more than 51% white) with tan, black, or brown markings. Brindle markings are unacceptable.
Coat: Smooth, without being so sparse as not to provide a certain amount of protection from the elements and undergrowth. Rough or broken coated, without being woolly.
Character: The terrier must present a lively, active and alert appearance. It should impress with its fearless and happy disposition. It should be remembered that the Jack Russell is a working terrier and should retain these instincts. Nervousness, cowardice or over-aggressiveness should be discouraged and it should always appear confident.
Temperament: The Jack Russell Terrier is a perky, merry, devoted, and loving dog. Spirited and obedient, yet absolutely fearless. Careful and amusing, he enjoys games and playing with toys. Friendly and generally kind to children who have been taught not to tease or strike the dog. They are intelligent, yet willful and determined. They can be slightly difficult to train and need a firm, experienced trainer. The Jack Russell can be aggressive with other dogs if not well trained and socialized.
Care: All coat types are easy to groom. Comb and brush regularly with a firm bristle brush, and bathe only when necessary. To show, owners must strip the coat. Like the rough coat, the broken coated Jack needs to be stripped out also.
Activity: The Jack Russell terrier is very adaptable and will exercise itself in a small yard, but it will be in its glory with space to run, hunt and play.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Health Issue: Some are prone to dislocation of the kneecaps, inherited eye diseases, deafness, Legg Perthes-a disease of the hip joints of small breeds of dogs.
Life Expectancy: About 15 or more years.

More About Jack Russell 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: Pomeranian-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chandler, AZ
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). ~~Nike cannot be much sweeter…she was taken in by a lady that found her running, and posted her for 2 months, hoping someone would be missing her. Even though she was pretty knotted up, she thought that someone MUST be missing her. Sad part was, no one called for her. She appears to be a Pomeranian / Cairn Terrier mix. Approx. 6 lb. so a little girl. Approx. 2 year old She is working on mastering the doggy door and does very well with other small dogs. She was chasing the cat in the fosters home, so no cats would be best. Loves affection and takes her about 15 minute to warm up and then she’s all about you. If you are wanting a great little dog to be part of your family, Please check her out. She will be fixed, rabies shot, micro-chipped and all her immunization shots will be done through RAIN Rescue.

Many shiver and shake with the unknown. #2) People adopt on impulse when they see a particularly cute dog/puppy. When they are adopted on impulse, reality sets in with in the 1st month of adopting it. Oh, this puppy ate the leg off my chair, I can’t have that!, or You said this dog was house trained and it pees all over;. . . and then in many cases they are returned to rescue. #3) When people have to fill out a form 1st, and read all the questions about the care of a dog/puppy, they see that there are many aspects to adopting a family member, that they may not of thought of. They also realize that it is a life time commitment. The application Is done prior to adopting, so the family understands the seriousness and responsibilities of ownership.

      rescue
      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Chandler, AZ
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). ***The 1st step to adopting any of our dogs is to fill out an application by going to our website. www.azrain.org. Click on the ADOPT tab, then DOG INTEREST FORM. OH MY....this little 9 month boy named Danny cannot possibly get any cuter!! He is the apple of many eyes. Danny is a owner surrender. He was VERY much loved, but the owner is in a wheel chair and purchased Danny from a breeder, thinking he was going to be able to run beside her and her other shih Tzu. However, this wasn't how it was. Danny has a birth defect, not allowing him to run or jump with out risking his front left knee cap to pop out of the socket. The owner took him to her vet letting him know that after a lot of walking she noticed some valgus (deformities) of both front legs. She was told and I was told by the vet that IF DANNY didn't go for walks/running around a lot/ jumping up & down on furniture and was a LAP dog, he may never have any further problems with his leg. I was also told by the vet that when he seen Danny, Danny was very excited and wagging his tail, and the average person wouldn't notice anything was wrong with him. As he ages, and if his activity increases, the worse case scenario would be that Danny would have to have his front left leg amputated. The knee cap is deformed, and he said he felt it wouldn't be fair to the dog to go through the pain of reconstructing it, then if he was just not active and more a lap dog. He is also on a baby asprin a day regiment. He seems happy and loves people. He is affectionate and is shy to visitors but warms up quickly. A very sweet disposition. ***HE WILL NOT GO TO A HOME WHERE THERE ARE SMALL KIDS OR A LOT OF ACTIVITY AND SOMEONE COMMITTED TO CARE FOR THIS SWEET LITTLE BOY FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE*** What we are HOPING & wanting for Danny is someone who will want a lap dog, a bed partner and a couch partner. Perhaps you are a walker, DANNY WOULD LOVE A STROLLER WALK WITH YOU, loves car rides too!! He is good with other small dogs, and loves all humans. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and micro-chipped. Danny has a gorgeous coat of fur and will require daily brushing and regular grooming trips. He weighs approx. 10 lbs. He will whine to let you know its potty time. Dannys adoption fee is set at $300.00 If you are interested in meeting him, Go to the ADOPT tab, and click on Dog Interest Form.
