Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (short coat). Jay is a 10 year old, affectionate, 18 pound neutered male. He is a little on the shorter side who is mostly white with a little brown on his head and ears. Since coming into Rescue, he has met several other dogs, and has greeted them appropriately. He has been friendly with everyone he has met thus far, and although he is affectionate, he is not clingy in any way. He is currently in a foster home with 2 other senior Jack Russells, and enjoys their company, but is past the point in his life that he desires a playmate. He still has plenty of energy, and enjoys a mile or two walk everyday. Jay appears to be completely housebroken, and readily jumps in the car to go for a ride. Some care must be given a feeding time, especially if other dogs are around, as he has no interest in sharing his food bowl. He likely would not be a fan of sharing his toys either. He is food motivated, so training with treats would likely be an easy way to get his attention. Jay has had some training, but could use a brush-up on basic commands. He walks fairly nicely on a leash, just pulling a little. He is very responsive to correction, and will be a great companion dog for a mature home. He is looking for a home without cats, birds, or other small furry critters. Adoption fee: $200 If you would like to know more about Jay or meet him, please contact Lynn at lynnbonham1@gmail.com or go to our website www.russellrescueca.com to fill out an adoption application.

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: Jack Russell Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Moorpark, CA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (short coat). Ginger is a beautiful, happy girl! A smile and a tail wag from this pretty little girl can win your heart! She is 6 years old and 16 pounds. Ginger is house trained, loves to go for hikes, has been ok around small children, knows some basic commands, and is crate trained. She’s a little bit bossy around other dogs, so we’re thinking she will be better with a boy fur brother. She really loves spending time with her humans. Kicking back on the couch is a favorite pleasure. This little one is all Jack Russell with a strong prey drive, so the best family for her would be one with no cats. A family who will let her live in the house with them and be part of their everyday life will make her a very happy Jack! If you would like to meet Ginger or know more about her, please contact Lynn at lynnbonham1@gmail.com

He loves to play with his ball, loves to ride in the car and go for walks and hikes. He knows his basic commands and is house trained. Also, can live with cats and has been around 4-H livestock and horses. Tippy is a little hard of hearing. He was tested at 40%, but the good news is he knows hand signals so no worries! He doesn’t mind small children, but his home would be better not to have them because they startle him. He has had his teeth polished – bonus! The best family for this medium energy little guy is one who wants a happy loyal companion who will keep them thin and healthy with long walks, who will love them and be their forever friend. And he'll always be close by in case you’re in the mood to throw his ball!
