Rescue Me ID: 16-05-17-00159Sparky (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello. I'm Sparky. I'm still a little confused and scared about why I'm here, but they assure me I'll get over that quickly and get feisty at JRT-U. My heart was recently broken when my family moved and decided they couldn't take me with them. They dropped me off at the kill shelter with 'my child' watching everything. I'm sure they are as sad and lost as me. But it 'is what it is,' I guess, and now I must move on. I really love Mama Donna and the vols I've met so far and am looking forward to a new life. I'm 5 years old, around 18 lbs., heartworm negative, UTD on shots, and get along fine with other dogs, children, cats, etc. I'm even ... (Read More)housebroken. I'm very laid-back and submissive. I love to be loved on and will easily roll over for belly rubs. (Less)

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Hello, big world. Baby girl here. Am I cute or what? Yes, I was definitely somebody's baby girl. I lived with a person who loved me very much, but, unfortunately, went to the human Rainbow Bridge. I didn't have anyone else to take care of me, so now I am searching for a new person or family to call my own and return the love I have to give. I'm an adorable, 16-lb. Terrier/Beagle mix, about 4 years old and very sweet, smart, easygoing and fun-loving. I mostly enjoy being with people, belly scratches, cuddling and treats. I'm leash trained and I do well with all people (tall and small) and, yes, even cats! Some dogs are OK, some aren't, so I ... (Read More)will need to meet yours. I will sometimes do a little 'tap-dance' and howl when I first see you that makes me even more adorable. I do, however, have a health issue that makes me extra special. Because of what was probably damage from a prior kidney infection, I can't 'concentrate' my urine. This leads me to wanting to drink obsessively (which, of course, can lead to bloat and additional damage). Fortunately, they have found me a very affordable diabetic medication that is helping me control this. Yay! I have to take it three times a day, but it's only $30/month and it's working wonders. The rescue says they will even help with my medications for a few months, if someone will give me the home I deserve. Other than that small issue, I am nothing short of awesome! Can I be your Baby Girl? (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-12-00578Turner (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Hip Dysplasia 

    Hello, two legged-peeps, I'm Turner. I was at rescue for a few months in the summer of 2015, but you didn't hear much about me because I had some troubles going on. I know, hard to believe looking at me - I'm freakin' gorgeous! I was hit by a truck-yes, a truck-when I was younger. My family could not afford to help me, and my back hips did not heal well like they should have. I was only 2-3, but I had dealt with pain for most of my life. I was very stiff legged and could barely lift my leg to pee '| although, trust me, I tried to about 200x a day. After all, I'm a Jack and I'm a boy! Must. Claim. Everything. Because I was uncomfortable, ... (Read More)I could be snippy sometimes and I snapped at people and other dogs on more than one occasion. That, however, is all behind me now, thanks to some therapy and medication! I've been in a temporary foster home and am doing great. I don't mind being touched and loved on and get along fine with the other dogs. I thought I had a home a couple of months ago, but things haven't quite worked out. We're still working with our sister rescue to place me in a northern home, but they are listing me again here to let you know I'm still available. Some of you had expressed an interest in me way back when. Overall, I'm a wonderful, smart boy who just wants to have fun. I am (again) all Jack and would do best in a home with someone who is Jack-savvy and understands that, even though my hip will have some permanent weakness, I am still gung-ho when it comes to playing and running! Thanks to living in foster care, I am fully house- and crate-trained and get along great with other dogs and all humans now. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, everyone! You may remember me from 2013 when I first arrived at rescue. I was adopted a couple of years ago and had a great life, but then we had to move. I ended up in an apartment, which just wasn't right for me. If you recall, I'm a very active boy. I like to be engaged, learning new things and constantly staying active or I can get a little anxious. Mom and the rescue both decided it would be best to bring me back here, where I can play in the field with the others every day until I can find a new home that it better suited to my needs. So, here I am. I know some of you had fallen in love with me originally, so guess what - ... (Read More)here's your chance to adopt me again! I love to play ball, run and am very curious about everything. I'm also very smart and picked up on agility right away. That said, I will need an active owner/family and some guidance from a very experienced JRT parent. I am a young boy (around 4 years old), am UTD on shots and am heartworm free. I love people and am fine with other dogs. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-12-00567Peanut (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Hey, there. Peanut here. I'm a 12-year-old boy who belonged to a family for many years. I was aging more quickly than most JRTs '| probably because I had 11 rotting teeth in my mouth! I am also blind and have some lingering back/hip issues. My former family took me to the vet to have 'some things' done and to board me as they prepared to move. I ended up racking up a huge vet bill '| so my family never came back to get me. Someone heard about me, though, and knew that this place is a sanctuary with a wonderful satellite 'senior center' for blind dogs like Floyd and me, so I ended up here. Since I arrived in early February, I have had ... (Read More)all of my nasty teeth removed '| although I have an adorable snaggletooth they like to 'awe' over. That made me feel 100% better - the dental, not the 'awe' stuff. I am now settling in and finding my way around the rescue ranch and my kennel. (See my video) I just received a Muffin's Halo Vest, which has been awesome with helping me get around without bumping into things. There's a picture of me here using it, but we'll upload a video soon. I love all the attention I am getting here, but would definitely be better off in a foster or, of course, forever home. If you or someone you know understands that older, physically-challenged Jacks like me are just as special, if not more special, than a Jack without challenges, please consider me. I will bring you plenty of smiles and lots of love (I love to be held). (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-12-00564Wrangler (male)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello, there. Wrangler here. I arrived at rescue in late February from the kill shelter. They don't really know much about my history, just that I am adorable and needed help. A couple of our adopted parents (aka Einstein's and Vela's parents) saw me and stepped up to sponsor me. Some fella named Eli had just passed at the rescue the day before, and they thought the perfect thing to do would be to save another shelter dog to honor him. So %BD'%BD| here I am! And so is Jake, who was at the shelter with me. I'm still settling in and learning the ropes. I can be a little food aggressive and sometimes even a little 'assertive' (not ... (Read More)aggressive) around other dogs. I sure love people, though, especially men. I would probably do best as an only dog, but if you have another dog, please bring them out to meet me and see how we do. I'm all vetted up, up-to-date on my shots, and hearworm negative. I'm about 16 lbs., handsome as can be and around 2 years old. (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, everyone. L'il Lily Rae here. I just arrived from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina, where I was surrendered with my younger brother, Oliver. I'm still checking out everything and settling in, but I really enjoyed spring vol day. It was nice to sit on everyone's laps and learn some agility moves with this thing called the 'magic spoon.' Someone even took me for a walk at the park! I'm 8 years old, around 13 lbs., UTD on shots and heartworm negative. They noticed that I am limping on my back leg, so they're getting that checked out, but I'm a Jack - it hasn't slowed me down. I like to be the boss, but I'm fine with other dogs. I ... (Read More)even get along good with children, horses and (gasp) cats! (Less)

Jack Russell    Age: Young Adult

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

    Howdy, folks! Little Oliver here. I just arrived from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina with my sister, Lily Rae. I'm still checking out everything and settling in, but I met a lot of people at spring vol day weekend and had a great time taking my glamour shots. Okay, I admit '| at first, I was a little scared of all the new faces and energies. I cowered a little and didn't want to walk on a leash. But I'm a sucker for a treat! After some goodies and a lot of reassurance, I knew everything was going to be all right. I was walking like a pro - and posing like one, too - within no time! I'm 4 years old, around 15 lbs. and UTD on shots. ... (Read More)I tested positive for heartworm, so they treated me. I'm still in my 'taking it easy' mode to let the worms die off and leave my system, but I should be just fine. I'm more submissive than my older sister and, like her, I get along with other dogs, children, horses and, yes, kitties, too. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-12-00555Spike (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Howdy, everyone! Spike here. My older sister, Molly, and I lived in a home with our dad, but he didn't always get along with our mom and was sometimes not as nice as he should have been to her. It wasn't good for anyone, especially us, so when things got really scary with red and blue lights, we had to be surrendered to the shelter. We'll just leave it at that. The awesome folks at Jacks Galore Russell Rescue saw our story-and the fact that we were about to be 'put down,' whatever that means-and they couldn't let that happen. They had us pulled, and one of the vols here at Georgia Jack Russell Rescue came to get us because they were closer ... (Read More)and could make a last-minute run to get us. Molly had tumors on her belly, horrible teeth, and really bad skin issues, so she went straight to the vet. I only had a few skin issues, so I came here to wait for transport. But then the folks here had this thing called Spring Vol Day. I met a ton of people, who gave me a ton of love, attention and treats and even took my pictures. Some even said, 'If we didn't already have so many dogs '|' I don't know exactly what that means; I guess they wanted to take me home but couldn't. They just kept telling me how incredibly adorable I am while I went for walks and melted into their arms '| something about my 'adorable head' on my Jack body. I'm still scheduled to go to JG, but while I wait, they thought they would share me. If I could get adopted locally, that would be awesome for everyone. Although I arrived with my sister, I've been a little 'curious' about the 'strange' dogs here. After all, it was Molly 'n me against the world for some time. So, if you have other dogs in your house, I will definitely need to meet them and see how we hit it off. If you want an only boy, we should have no problem. Even though I've been through a lot, I totally trust people - men and women. I haven't met the little ones they call 'kids' here yet, so we would need to figure that out (safely), too. I am UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm negative and around 5-6 years old. And, for those wondering, Molly is doing great! The tumors were benign, her teeths are cleanz, and she's feeling good for the first time in a long time! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-12-00545Sophie (female)

Jack Russell    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, everybody! How are you?! How's life?! What's going on?! Am I excited?! Of course, I am! I'm an 9-month-old Jack Russell puppy! Everything is new(!), exciting(!), overwhelming(!) '| well, you get the gist. I was purchased from a breeder by a mature couple, who very much loved me. Unfortunately, my mother got very sick, and my father had to focus on taking care of her. I'm a bit high-maintenance (as all puppies are, especially Terriers), so they gave me to their daughter's family, hoping I would fit in. Unfortunately, again '| they already had a couple of older dogs who weren't 'thrilled' with my puppy energy and needs. Their ... (Read More)parents also worked full-time and knew I needed a lot of guidance and TLC, so they made the decision to surrender me to the rescue. I have been here a couple of weeks, have met a lot of new people at Spring Vol Day (all of whom I loved) and have learned a lot of new things. That said, I still need to learn a lot more new things '| like how to get along with other dogs. I've already met a couple of prospective families, but I had 'words' with their furkids. So '| with all that said '| as adorable as I am, I am not a puppy for the first-time Jack Russell parent. I am exploding with energy and excitement and I need a lot of focus, guidance and positive reinforcement. I could be OK with other dogs, if you and/or your dog is willing to teach me socialization skills. I probably wouldn't be good with kids as I'm very much a baby myself and need to learn some manners around the little ones. But one thing is for sure - I am one smart girl! I sit beautifully, am treat-motivated, and love to learn new things. This whole ball and agility thing has been awesome for me. With the right parent(s), I am going to be a rock star! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-21-00077Jazzy (female)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jazzy here and I know what you're thinking '| 'That ain't no Jack!' But you know these folks - they've never met a dog they didn't love, especially when that dog needs help. And that was me. I needed help. I won't go into details, but I'll just say that my family didn't want me and they let me run lose a lot, i.e. I was a 'country dog.' The neighbors were scared of me (they said cuss words and 'pit' something or other). Long story short, I ended up here. For those who have been to rescue, you may know that Mama Donna has a beautiful 'pit' something or other named Baby who is, well, a big ole baby. She wouldn't hurt a fly and neither would ... (Read More)I. These folks aren't experts in my breed, so they are referring to me as an American Bulldog/Terrier mix. I also have a little hound in me. What they DO know is that I'm about two years old, around 45 lbs., heartworm negative, UTD on my shots, in great health and, most importantly, about as sweet as I can be. I sit nicely at my gate when it's time to go for a walk and I walk beautifully on a leash. (I don't, however, like my indoor crate at night, so they have a 'special' heated doghouse for me right now.) I even like children. Other dogs are OK, as long as they don't challenge me. I'm not dominant at all. I've just been a mom, and protection is second nature. I would need to meet your dog(s) to see if we're a fit. I love the people at the ranch, but it's set up for smaller dogs. I want more room to roam and a human to call my own. If you or someone you know understands that I am just as special as a Jack, please consider me and/or share me. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, everybody! L'il Abby here. I was a 'surprise' from my dad to my mom as a gift and, well, you know how that goes. It rarely ends up well. My parents are truck drivers and always on the go. I didn't like being on the go at all. The road was no place for me. So, they had to give me up. But that's OK. I am getting lots of attention and playtime here at rescue. I can only imagine how great my next real home will be! I am a little skittish at first around strangers, but I warm up quickly with a treat and reassurance. I will even delight you with my adorable belly walk! Give me a couple more weeks here around all these peeps who love and ... (Read More)want to help me, and I will probably be over that. I just didn't have a lot of socialization before, so the world can be a scary place. I like other dogs and want to play with them, but I still need to learn how to properly approach them. I am a Jack/Chi baby about six months old and around 11-12 lbs. I'm heartworm-negative, UTD on all of my shots, healthy, playful and happy. I'll just need to be spayed before I can leave. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy! Nubbin here. I came to rescue from an out-of-state puppy mill bust in 2015. When I went to get neutered, the vet noticed some damage to my tail that was most likely due to trauma. Most of it had to be removed, but I still have a little nubbin, thus my adorable name. I'm a sweet, fun, feisty and active little man who lives to play with other dogs. I just entered foster care with a couple of fabulous girls, Cammie and Lady, who are showing me how great this life-in-a-home thing can be. My foster mom, Lindsey, says I've been nothing short of perfect - no accidents, marking, other trouble a young guy my age who has never lived in a home ... (Read More)might bring. How great is that?! I'm about a year old, around 15-16 lbs, and cute as can be. I'm looking for a family who has other dogs (I get along great with boys and girls) and a big, fenced-in yard where we can all play all day '| literally! I can be a little 'mouthy' sometimes, but we're working on that. If you have children, they must be dog-smart and know how to handle me. (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Hey, people. Skeety here. My older brother, Odie, and I were dropped off at the kill shelter. Our family moved and they couldn't take us with them, so '| Yeah, let's not dwell on it. It is what it is. Odie was a little protective of me, and I'm a little outgoing, which lead to a little argument after we arrived. They separated us, and we're both doing OK now. It could be cool if they adopted us together, but it's not a two-fer, like Eli and Elanor. We will learn to move on, if needed. I'm an outgoing, silly boy around 4-5 years old who is, unfortunately, heartworm positive. I'll need to be treated and won't be available for a few weeks, ... (Read More)but we wanted to let you know I'm here and I'll be adoptable. I'm UTD on shots, neutered, sweet and want to have FUN. Bring it on! (Less)
