Rescue Me ID: 15-01-31-00158Andrea/Happy (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, peeps! My name is Andrea %BD'%BD| although they have been calling me 'Happy' after a funny misunderstanding on my Facebook shelter thread %BD'%BD| and 'Snowball' because, look at me! You can refer to me as any of those. I was scheduled to be put down after being at Macon-Bibb County Animal Welfare since early December. My Beagle sister, Gin Gin, and I losts our human in November %BD'%BD| then Gin Gin got adopted and I losts her, too. Lots of people rallied together, posted pledges and, on a Tuesday and Wednesday when no one really had time, stitched together an escape plan for me to come here. Somehow, someway, everyone ... (Read More)made it happen (during a time when they really can't take any more dogs here) and now I'm safe, sound and getting ready for my new life. I even had time to stop by the vet. He says I'm about 2 years old, I look great overall, he gave me all of my shots, and found me to be heartworm negative (woo-hoo!). I can be a little nervous around people at first, but am easily won over by a treat. I'm part Doxie, so you knows I gots moxie! I miss my sister and am very interested in the other dogs here. It would be great if we could get me back into a home with another canine companion to call my own. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-30-00047Joey (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    'How YOU doin'?' Joey here. I was at the kill shelter when one of our rescue's adopted parents and supporters saw me and could not imagine me being put down. She shared my story and pic with Mama Donna. We had just had a couple of adoptions and the timing was just right for me to join the gang here. I'm a happy, healthy, young guy (maybe only a couple of years old). I have plenty of energy, but am also loving and laid-back, too. I love people '| and I especially love giving kisses '| and amusing everyone by crawling on my belly. But I only like the tall humans. I was around some small ones in a temporary situation and I did not react ... (Read More)well. They scares me. I'm good with other dogs, but I will need to go to a home where there are no children or one in which I can be crated and feel safe when they are visiting. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00272Sparky the Fire Dog (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, folks! 'Sparky the Fire Dog' here. I was adopted from the kill shelter with my scruffy Jack Russell sister Roxy (who has already been adopted), then returned for a reason the people here don't know why. They just knew what that meant for me: I would be redlined and put down immediately. I was so sweet and gentle and wonderful and '| hey '| how could I not go on to touch everyone's hearts? Nope, I couldn't. I'm a very young (only about a year or two) boy who is very submissive. So submissive that I really didn't want to stand up for photos. I was much more comfortable being in Mama Donna's arms and/or rolling over for belly ... (Read More)scratches. I also like to dig. We're going to work on my insecurities and turn me into a confident, young man. If you're interested in doing so for or with us, we would love that, too! I'm neutered and have had all my shots, but my previous family didn't think heartworm testing was important. Yeah, don't get us started on that. I still need to be tested for that, but am ready to go otherwise. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00260Hannah (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Hello, big world. Hannah here. My profile is new to the website, but I'm not. I have been with the rescue since April of 2013 when several of my kennel mates and I were saved from a rescue that had neglected us. We saw many of our friends lose their lives before we were saved, but we were the lucky ones '| or so I was told. I sure didn't feel so lucky back then. My kennel mate, whom I really trusted, was taken from me during the seizure, and I ended up at the rescue, alone and terrified. For three months, Mama Donna and the volunteers tried to get me to trust them, but I spent most of my time running in circles in my kennel, wondering ... (Read More)what was going to happen. I had been betrayed twice before and expected it to happen again. Finally, in July, they were able to calm me down and I started learning to trust. It took several more months, but I finally stopped running from the folks I grew to know the most. When people would come see us, though, it was right back to frantic circles. I was definitely not ready for adoption. I had also been (incorrectly) diagnosed with heartworm, so we had to do something soon to treat me. In early 2014, a couple of wonderful supporters and volunteers (Pam and Bonnie) stepped up to help me. They took me into their home with their awesome pack of three and a cat (whom I have never glanced twice at). Slowly but surely, they helped me gain trust, taught me things I needed to know (table manners, how to walk on a leash, playtime and toys), and helped me grow my confidence. I became Hannah v2.0. As it turned out, my growth and confidence began to lead to some challenges with my foster sister, who is pretty confident herself. So, it's time for me to move on to another foster home or (praying for a miracle) a forever one, so I'll never had to adjust or learn to trust again. I am temporarily staying with Chad, who has his own special needs. I am doing well here, but need to move to something more permanent ASAP. We all agree I should not go back to rescue. Although I will be loved there, I will not receive the one-on-one attention I deserve. I've come too far to take any steps backwards. I would really thrive in a new foster/forever home without other dogs or with submissive male dogs. I've been doing fine with Isis and Chad, but trust people a lot more than other dogs right now. I can be a little insecure when another dog gets too close to my crate. Outside of my crate, I'm fine and don't mind sharing toys or space with other dogs. We just all need a strong human to keep everyone secure and relaxed. I would also do best with a human who understands dogs like me and can continue to help me grow and thrive. I have come so far in just nine months; I can't imagine who I will be in another nine. It's just important that I have stability in my life and, as you know, the kennels are no place for that.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-13-00135Brooklyn (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished 

    Brooklyn here! If you're a JRT rescue advocate on social media, you might have seen me before. It's not often that a northern dog makes a southern trip; quite the opposite with the kill shelter ratio in the South, but you know Mama Donna's heart for those seniors who have lost everything '| My human was too old to take care of me and was sent to a rest home. The family didn't want to care for me, so off I went to the kill shelter. The volunteers the the shelter could not fathom me being put down after all of that loss and they knew I would be, given my health issues. Despite those challenges, I am full of spirit and life and I want to ... (Read More)carry on the legacy of love I knew all of those years. I arrived here in April 2014, but have spent a good portion of it at the vet. I have heart issues, am uncomfortably overweight, have an ongoing respiratory infection and (zoiks!!) I have kidney stones. My heart is too weak to have them removed surgically, so I am now on a special Science Diet s/d to help dissolve the stones. I've passed one, but have more. Despite all of this, I'm still happy and smiling. I love exploring the field and being held. Once I get over this initial hurdle, I am going to make someone else a wonderful senior dog. If you love older, special-needs sweethearts, I'm your man! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-12-00248Hunter (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hunter here! My brother, Parker, and I were scheduled to be put down within hours a few weeks ago at Walton County when their story made its way to this rescue. We were both young boys and were running - no tags, no collars, no one to claim us. One of our volunteers noticed they were redlined, but very young and sweet and it just seemed wrong to let us leave this life so soon. We spent some time in boarding until they had room for us, but now we're here and ready to roll. I am definitely the alpha and would need to be re-homed with no other or very submissive dogs. I'm a typical JRT mix with a tail that wags me. I just want to have fun, ... (Read More)hunt stuff and play - but I also love to just sit on your lap for hours and watch the world go by. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-12-00240Dixie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, there! I'm Dixie and I just landed here in the 'heart of the south' rescue. Yeah, I know, I'm a little more Rat than Jack, but you know these people '| I came from a place that was busted for cruelty and hoarding. (Yes, the same one as Sam, Bailey, Sadie, Pebbles, Rocky and Hannah.) I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! I have been staying in foster care, but my time ran out. I needed to go somewhere '| quickly. They had to do some shuffling, but they found a space for me. Not sure how they do this all the time for dogs like me'| I just know it takes them a long time to scoop, feed and ... (Read More)clean all of us everyday '| and they all have jobs '| I am such a sweet, gentle girl; a little skittish with strange new objects (took me awhile to warm up to the camera), but very loving and willing to trust. I have a couple of swollen nipples they are concerned about, so I need to see the vet. I've apparently had babies recently, so that may be why. Like Bailey and Sadie, fleas have sadly attributed to some hair loss on my tail and, unfortunately, like Sam, I am heartworm positive. I will need to go through slow-kill treatments before I will be available for adoption; however, we are open to a foster home for me in which to heal during the time I need to stay calm and let the treatments do their work.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-12-00235Diamond (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Diamond here! I was on the redline list when many people rallied to have me pulled from the kill shelter. They had to scramble to put together another kennel with panel scraps, but they got it done '| They knew, of course, that I was way too beautiful to not have not ended up at the shelter without there being underlying issues. Sure enough, I had kennel cough; fleas had done a job on my rear end; my teeth were worn down and chipped; and '| yes, I'm heartworm positive. It appears I may have been used as a breeding dog as well. Fortunately, I only have adult worms and was healthy enough to be spayed. No more breeding for me. I get to be ... (Read More)the baby now. I recently had my heartworm treatments and am currently recovering, staying calm and waiting for those nasty worms to work through my system. I will be up and at 'em soon, though. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-07-14-00080Rocky (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, there. Rocky here. The place I previously lived was busted for cruelty and hoarding. I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! Now I'm here and have been told many times that life is about to get really good. I arrived looking pretty good (for our situation). I had a growth on my chest and, like all the other dogs, my teeth were in rough shape. But it didn't take long until they realized that I was losing weight - rapidly. I was a sick boy. The growth turned out to be just a fatty tumor, which we had removed. I also received a dental. (Doc said my teeth were ground down from chewing on the ... (Read More)crate after we were abandoned in our last location.) They treated me for parasites and gave me these yummy satin balls to gain weight. I have improved significantly and am feeling really good now. I could use another pound or two, but Mama Donna says I am ready for happiness. I am probably around 5 years old; it's hard to know for certain. I'm incredibly smart and learn quickly. As you can see from my photos, I can even do some agility and would make a great running companion. I can be a little food aggressive, though, so I would be best as an only dog or in a home where someone understands this and knows how to handle it. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00143Slick (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey, tall peoples! I'm Slick and I came here from the same breeder with Eli and Elanor who 'had no use' for me anymore. Actually, I don't think he had a 'use' for me, period - my head is as big as my little body, so I was most likely a 'reject.' Try and tell that to the peoples who take care of me now, though. They call me a 'football with legs' and just adore me. I may be small with a big ole head, but I'm too darn cute for words. Despite these little legs, I love to run and jump. I'm not really a fan of other dogs, though, so I would do best in a one-dog family. I also have a lot of trust issues and can be very shy and scared when I first ... (Read More)meet you, but once I do - game on! Unfortunately, it takes so long for me to warm up that I will probably spend the rest of my Golden Years here. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 12-10-22-00141Jackie (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi, everybody! I was in really neglected shape when I was brought here in the summer of 2011. The ends of my ears were gone. My nails were painfully long. My teeth were bad. I had skin issues and I was missing patches of hair, including my tail. My nails and teeth were taken care of, but it seems that I am allergic to almost everything and everything. Because of that, I am considered 'special needs' and require medication to help limit my scratching. Unfortunately, the medications work for a period of time, then stop working, and I'm back to scratching. You can tell by my pictures that those nasty old allergies are keeping me from being the ... (Read More)beauty queen I really am. I'm an older gal, so I may have to live out my golden years in my room unless someone is willing to give me the attention and vet care I need in a new home. If you are, please don't hesitate to call and come visit me! I'm a fun and spunky girl; I just can't play outdoors a lot right now. (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I was dropped off at JRT rescue several years ago with Eli, my hubby and partner in terrier crime. We were breeder dogs and, much to the dismay of the man who used us for profit, were deemed 'useless' because our babies were coming out 'too small.' He had worse plans for our fate, but fortunately decided to call Mama Donna to come and get us. We are so fortunate she did. I have not been forced to have babies since then and I get to spend every day here with Eli and lots of other funny dogs. I'm an older gal and I have a heart murmur that requires monthly medication. In addition, I am only adoptable as one-half of a pair with Eli, so most ... (Read More)people pass us by. That's OK, we really don't mind since we like it here, but we know that my medicine costs a lot, as does our food and other vet bills. We understand if you're not looking to adopt an aging couple in their golden years, but would definitely appreciate being sponsored. (Less)

    Eli here! I am a rock star and I know it. Front stage, center! I am positively gorgeous and funny and, as many visitors have learned over the years, if you can't adopt my wife with me, you can't adopt me. I tried it a couple of times. I ran away to get back to her both times. She and I are an extra-special, dynamic duo. We came here as a breeder drop-off; he said we were 'too old' and he 'had no use' for us anymore. Humans can be silly. We have plenty to offer, especially in the 'ooo-ahh' laugh department. In short, we are now happily 'fixed' and feistier and funnier than ever. We have been here for a long time and, due to aging and my ... (Read More)wife's heart murmur, will probably live out our Golden Years here. I don't mind because my rescue mama and volunteers treat me like gold, but Elanor and I wouldn't mind sitting on a couch for the rest of our lives, either. (Less)
