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, 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.

      Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Husky / Mixed (long coat). Lou was rescued from a North Carolina shelter. He is a friendly, affectionate,playful dog, However being chow he has his quirks, does not like to be pushed, and when he sets his mind he does not easily back down. He has a history of serious biting in a previous foster home (turkey on kitchen table..) hile here never anything more than a mild polite rumble when handled a little rough. On the other hand he is a loyal dog, even if he does not always listen promptly, he has no plan to run away (like huskies often must). With smaller dogs, up to 25 lbs, he can be too in-your-face. Would not place into home with small kids or neighborhood kids. HW negative, neutered. About 5 y/o For application please mail

    • Mutt Dog For Adoption in NORWICH, NY



      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: NORWICH, NY
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Another year, cannot believe but I am growing old here. Not that I feel any older than one year. Slender and agile, life is a game! I still cannot be trusted off leash indoors, too many iresistable objects to investigate and often thoroughly examine. Little dogs still fascinate me, that must a trait I was born with, coming from original Upstate NY farm stock! Sheep? Goats? Small cows? I am still cautious, if not leery of strangers, even can become nippy when approached too fast by a stranger. So it looks like I am to be fixture here in this fosterhome. Ok with me. But then, dogs have been found and adopted from this fosterhome after 2-3 years here. I would set a record. Zak speaking: "Seems I have become what they call a "foster failure" - meaning they just cannot find a home that I would fit in..Or maybe they just don't want to let me go, worry that I might not adjust , end up in a shelter, on a chain, or in a stable with cows.All those things that foster parents worry about. Also, I have become very attached to this home, and while I do not mingle well with small dogs, especially fesity small dogs, I do get along. Still jumping in trhe air for fun, but I walk ok on leash. Not so sure about strangers, and that makes it difficult to "show" me to potential adopters. I love the open space here and the freedom to run and explore my territory. And also watch for unusual activities. But mostly I am a affectionate indoor dog. Love my crate, good food, and watching the outdoors from my deck perch. Will post some new photos, although I really have not changed much. Read more at: Zack is 3 1/2 years old, just left puppyhood behind. Still he is an exuberant dog, always ready for rough playing, especially jumping into the air. He thinks he is agility material, although he likely comes from farm/herding stock. He has what is needed to keep order among a moving congregation, but only in a safe family environment. He was purchased from a local farm, but went through 2 homes before coming to this foster home at age 6 months. Most likely due to his exuberance which is intimidating to smaller dogs. Exceptions are courageous equally playful dogs of any size (not under 15 lbs though). He does not have a mean bone in him, just so darn much energy. His passion is chasing water from a garden hose. With strangers he is shy, even protective/aggressive. Very alert, watchful. Basically he is still a fearful pup. He walks well on leash, but he is easily distracted by neighborhood dogs and even little goats. Although he is a high energy dog when free to run and play outdoors, he loves the indoors. He is mischievous and very curious and cannot be to be given free run indoors without close supervision. He spends short periods of time outside, but always returns quickly to his post on the deck to survey activities in the neighborhood. He does not mind rain and snow, but is not happy in cold,raw weather. Zack has been visited by several potential adopters, but each time he was just a bit to 'in their face' to be a comfortable match. If you would like to meet him please email us, please include basic information and we will send an application. Email:

    • American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in NORWICH, NY



      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: NORWICH, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I acquired a dog from someone who could no longer foster her. She came from a neglectful situation where she was tied outside to a pole and drastically underfed. The person who fostered her worked many hours and left her crated for 10 hours a day. She was in the home for 2 months with cats. This woman reached out to me for help. I took the dog in but I have several other fosters and I run a home based dog grooming and boarding business. She is not good with other dogs and I cannot keep her here much longer. She LOVES people. She's very sweet, playful, active, loves walks & knows basic commands. She is fully vetted and microchipped. Can you help find a foster or adopter for her? She's 45lbs. Spayed. Her name is Brenda.
