jack russell terrier rescue dog


Meet happy little Willow! Willow is very social and is great with children and other dogs. She loves to play with toys, tug-o-war specially. She is food orientated so that helps with her training, we are currently working on sit and stay.

Willow is very bouncy and is lacking in some basic manners. She gets a bit too excited and jumps up at people. She also needs ongong lead training.

Editors notes: This girl is a Jack Russell puppy still under 12 months old. Jack Russell puppies are not for the faint-hearted. They are exuberant, happy, high energy, affectionate and mischievous small dogs that need owners with plenty of patience, leadership qualities, time and space on the couch to share.

You will need good fences that she canโ€™t dig under or climb over and someone home a lot and/or another friendly dog for company. We walk our Jack Russells in harnesses, this protects their necks from damage and gives us more control.

If you think you have a Jack Russell friendly home and have the patience and love for this sweet girl, please submit an expression of interest by email to Lorraine.
