Chico

Chico is a 7-year-old Bull Terrier/JRT mix who has been in foster care for some time now.  He is a very healthy, strong and energetic dog.  Chico is neutered and up to date on all shots.  He is a very lovable and loyal dog towards his foster family.   His favorite activity is playing ball which he will do for hours if you let him!  Chico gets along with other stable, well-mannered dogs.  He can be a bit food aggressive so we feed him in his crate.  We do not allow him to share toys or balls with the other dogs in the home. 

His personality at play is best described as a linebacker in a dog suit!  Chico is not good around cats and he will require a fully fenced in yard when outside.  He can’t use a radio collar electronic fence since he has already been trained to use an e-collar.  Chico requires at least 30 minutes of exercise daily but he will certainly play for longer periods of time if you let him!  He sleeps well in his crate at night.  Due to his physical strength, we don’t recommend him for a home with young children.  He can be very protective of his family when strangers are around.  He does take time to warm up to new people.  If you would like to make Chico the newest member of your family, please contact MAJR and complete an application at www.majr .org.   

Princeton Pee Wee

Princeton and Pee Wee

Princeton and Pee Wee are a bonded pair who were surrendered to ACCT in Philly in February 2016.  These sweet boys are Jack Russell/Chinese Crested mix (which accounts for what was thought to have been hair loss) and they are currently being fostered in the suburbs of Philly.

They are neutered, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on vaccinations. This bonded pair gets along with cats and dogs and they love to go on walks (they are great on leash).  They are love bugs and enjoy playing and giving kisses and snuggling with humans or each other.  In fact, when you see one of them, the other is bound to be very close by! 

Princeton is 8 years old and is the smaller/shorter of the two. He has more body hair than Pee Wee, with black and white markings on his back.  Princeton weighs about 20 pounds and takes phenobarbital for seizure disorder (with medication, he has been seizure free without any issue).  Pee Wee is 9 years old and weighs about 21 pounds.  He is the taller of the two and has much less body hair than Princeton.  These boys have lived their entire lives together so we want them to stay together. There will be a discounted rate for the adoption fee.  

Please consider adding this dynamic duo to your family!  You won't regret it.

Please contact MAJR at majrinc@gmail.com for more information.

Patches

Patches

Please meet Patches. He is about 2 years old and was an owner surrender from Maryland. He was surrendered because he wasn't behaving or listening. Funny thing is he probably couldn't hear to obey. Although we haven't done a BAER test on Patches, we think he can hear a little bit but not a lot.

Patches lives happily with 7 other dogs of different sizes and ages (including an intact male) and one old cat. He sleeps in the bed (and under the covers). He will play with other dogs for brief periods and his foster every once in a while but he tends to a loner. 

Patches likes to be around people but he has not shown himself to be a very affectionate dog. He likes to be petted and to cuddle but there are times when he would prefer to just be close without being touched and will let his people know which he prefers. Because Patches has strong bite inhibition, he has not broken skin but he will look scary and he will nip if you don't listen. 

Patches loves to go for walks but he does not to well in crowds and with strangers. He doesn't do well in situations where there is a lot of movement around him and situations he doesn't understand. He would not be good with children or senior citizens.  Patches is also a tail chaser . We have been working to resolve this habit and he is much better . He can also be crate aggressive. He will growl and lunge at the crate door . Since he is housebroken, there is not much need to crate.

Patches needs a special owner who understands the challenges presented to deaf dogs and one who is willing to support him without enabling with fear. He will do best with a quiet private person looking for a companion to go for walks and just have another being in the house. Because he is not good with strangers , whoever adopts Patches will need to be willing to give him several weeks for him to find his way and adjust to his new home and new schedules. He will also need someone familiar with alternative medicine to help with his tail chasing and fears. Patches has not done well with conventional medicine but is reacting really well to homeopathy, herbs and a mostly raw diet. 

I know Patches doesn't sound perfect but he is a great little dog now that he is better balanced mentally and we understand his body language. If you are willing to give him a chance and time, he will be a great companion. 

If you'd like to offer Patches a forever home, please apply contact us.

 

Riley

Riley

Riley is a precious, lovable Jack Russell mix. He is neutered, up to date on his shots and in very good health. He is a playful 6-7 yr. old dog and full of a contagious joy!

Prior to living with his professional trainer, Riley got along great with the small dogs and cat in his previous foster home. Riley is very polite when company comes and is good with children. He loves everyone he meets! His basic obedience skills are strong and he learned very fast in his foster home. For the last six weeks, Riley has been with a professional trainer every day and has proved to be an excellent student. Riley's trainer is his current foster and he will provide support for an adopter so that all of Riley's accomplishments can be appreciated and enjoyed every day. His first foster is also available to give support and talk about Riley’s preferences and activities that he loves.

Riley likes to take walks and rides in the car, he loves his stuffies and thrives in a fenced yard to play and chase whatever moves. He is a very special dog with so much love and joy in his heart. If you think you could give Riley the love and home that he needs, please fill out an adoption application. Riley's trainer has done an excellent job of teaching Riley to handle stress. Below are a few important words from his trainer.

“The handler, owner or foster I would like to have for him has to be structured, be willing to exercise a clear form of communication for him, a clear non-threatening leadership and above all else give him a happy non-stressed environment. I think Riley placed with a well versed handler that knows what to do in preventative maintenance will not have a problem handling him. I will be willing to give this person clear advice.”

Chicko

Chicko

Hi, my name is Chicko and I’m a year old JRT/Chi mix. I’m a super fun and active puppy. I like to play fetch and can run all day. I get along with other dogs as long as they don’t mind me being the boss. I don’t seem to mind cats. I was scared when I first went to my foster family’s house, where I did bite an adult and child. I have been doing much better and my behavior is more trusting, so I haven’t shown any aggression recently. I’m still leery of strangers, so it takes me time to warm up to people. I would do best in a family without young children because they are more unpredictable which makes me scared. I’m super smart and have been working on my obedience. I’m house trained and don’t mind being in a kennel when my family is at work. I need to stay in a safe area when I’m unsupervised because, being a puppy, I like to chew things.

Prior to coming into MAJR, I did have surgery in November of 2016 for swallowing something I shouldn’t have and it had to be removed from my stomach. I’m neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on shots so if you'd like to make me part of your family, please contact MAJR majrinc@gmail.com for more information.

Spot

Spot

Hi...my name is Spot. I am 8 years old. I would really like to find my furever home. I get along with other dogs but I really have no interest in them. I prefer to be with people. I need a home with no children. I love to go on long car rides and play with my toys. I am crate trained but I really don't need one cause I'm such a good boy. I'm trustworthy when left alone in the house. I love to snuggle and sleep under the blankets. I do have a heart murmur so though I love to go on walks, I'm not the kind of guy who will be able to go on long hikes with you. So if anyone out there is looking for a special friend I'm your boy. I just want my very own person to love and spend time with me.

Lucy Bean

Lucy Bean

Lucy Bean is a 13 year old Jack Russell mix. She is a petite girl only weighing 11 pounds. Lucy Bean lost her home when her only owner went into a nursing home. She ended up in a high kill shelter in Williamsburg Virginia. Lucy Bean gets along well with other dogs and cats. She loves everyone including children. Lucy is deaf and almost blind so I don't recommend young children around her. She requires eyedrops daily for chronic dry eye. She is up-to-date on all of her shots, microchipped and on heartworm prevention. 

Lucy suffers from separation anxiety. She sleeps in bed with her foster mom, and sleeps through the night. There is nothing she loves more than being with her person. Because of her age, she needs to go out more often then a younger dog. The ideal home for Lucy would be a stay at home mom, someone who works from home, or a retired person. Lucy loves to go on car rides. She walks great on a leash. She loves to go shopping when the stores allow her to go in. She's just a wonderful little dog that is full of love. 

Lucy Bean does not like to be crated at all, she has panic attacks when put into the crate. She is the perfect lapdog that would love a forever home. If you think Lucy Bean is the right dog for you, please fill out MAJR's Adoption form.

Witherspoon

Witherspoon

Miss Witherspoon ("Reece") is a ten year old JRT who found herself without a home over the holidays when her family discovered she has diabetes. Reece's diabetic needs are very simple and inexpensive. She is now on 3 units of insulin twice daily and doing extremely well! She is super good for her shots! We have her eating 4 Health lower carb canned food from Tractor Supply 2x daily (1/2 can 2x daily) and her weight is now perfect. She loves pieces of fruit and veggies as occasional healthy treats. Reece is such a sweet sweet girl! She prefers to be near us at all times and either lays quietly at our feet or follows us from room to room as we go about our day. She has a funny playful side and will go from a quiet snuggle to bounding around the room with a ball. She barked at our cats when she first arrived as if she had never seen one before but never aggressively. Now they all hang out with no issues. She plays outside with the kids, following them around. She loves to ride in the car but hates to be kenneled, preferring to be buckled in like one of the kids! She would be a fabulous girl for someone who is home a lot as she loves to be near us and tries to go out to the car when we are preparing to leave for the day. She wants to go too! Reece is available for adoption through Mid Atlantic Jack Rescue

Bingo

Bingo

Bingo is a 10-12 year old neutered male Jack Russell who lost his home due to personality issues with a new family member. He is up to date on shots, housebroken and crate trained. After some initial growing pains, Bingo is getting along with the other dogs in his foster home. He has no food or toy aggression. Bingo is very friendly with anyone he meets and enjoys being scratched and stroked and is beginning to want to play a bit. He has some lumps on his body but they have been biopsied and found not to be cancerous. Bingo does not jump up like most Jacks nor does he get on furniture or beds. Though he would probably be happiest in a home as an only dog, he would be able to cohabitate with another small dog.

If you’d like to make Bingo your newest family member, please contact MAJR.

Petey

Petey

Hi, my name is Petey (Peter if I’m feeling fancy) and I’m a 9 year old Jack Russel Terrier mix. My foster family thinks it’s funny to say I look like I’m 9 going on 90, but don’t let that fool you, I don’t act like a 9 year old: I’m quite the spunky little fellow! I love to trick people into thinking I’m a rickety old man, so they don’t have high expectations of me—but I can still jump up onto the couch, chase the cats onto counters, and I play a mean game of tug-of-war. I even jumped over a large suitcase, onto a shelf to chase one of those pesky cats. In other words: don’t be fooled by my “little old-man” shtick, it’s all for show.

I would probably do best in a home without cats, as I LOVE to chase, bark, and harass them; however, I’m fine with other dogs as long as they’re nice to me. I currently live with a 7-year-old Beagle/Spaniel mix and she and I ignore each other mostly; she likes to steal my bones, but I don’t seem to mind. My foster mom thinks I would do best in a home without young children as I don’t like for my muzzle to be touched (I had surgery there), and I definitely don’t like being picked up—but once you know my likes and dislikes, I’m pretty easy to manage and A LOT of fun to play with.

I love to be pet and scratched and spend most of my day sleeping (chasing cats really takes it out of me). I am currently taking Cosequin for my joints, but have no issue navigating stairs or hardwood floors. My hearing isn’t the best (at least we think, it’s possible I have selective hearing), but if you clap and wave to let me know where you are I will come running. I did have a few accidents when I first came home with my foster mom and wasn’t sure of the routine. Now that I have settled into my home and regular routine, I very rarely have any accidents. It’s best if I can go out every 6-8 hours, and once I know you—I have no shame in barking at you to let you know I need to go out. With a little patience, understanding—and a love of Jack Russell Terriers—I will make the right owner very happy as I have a funny and silly personality. My foster mom thinks I’m the bees knees (aside from chasing the cats) and she can’t wait to tell you more about me!

Smitty

Smitty

Hi, my name is Smitty! I am a ten year-young purebred Jack Russell. I am an athletic shortie with the softest hair. I am up to date with shots, microchipped, and neutered. I need an owner who understands how much my breed loves their people and who can promise to allow me to be the only dog. I love playing with other dogs but I get very upset and possessive when the other dogs are in my home being held or loved on. I don’t mean any harm, I just want to feel secure and know that I am just as special. I am a total Frisbee addict and I’ll play for hours but I also now how to settle down and snuggle. I also love lawnmower surfing!! I am house trained and quiet in my crate. I love taking walks and am a great loose-leash walker. I’m great with older kids but not with cats or horses. I have worked with a professional trainer and would love someone who can continue with my marker training. I am located in VA and am available for adoption through Mid-Atlantic Jack Rescue, Inc. My ideal forever home would be a retired person who understands my breed and is willing to continue my training.

Jackson Stewart

Jackson Stewart

Hello everyone! My name is Jackson Stewart but my foster mom calls me Stewie! I don't care what you call me as long as it's not late for dinner! BOL! I'm 11 years old but no one believes that, up to date on my shots, on heartworm and flea/tick treatment. I live in a townhouse right now with 3 other jacks - two girls and a boy! We get along fine - I like to play with Zuzu too! I'm housebroken, good on the leash (most of the time!) I try not to bark at other dogs but.....sometimes I slip up! I hang out with 2 boys that are 13 and 10 but have met little kids too and like them! Everyone says they could just look in my eyes for hours 'cause they're so sweet! I love sleeping on the bed - my foster mom says she wishes all the dogs were as good as me - I get in bed and don't move! I'm looking for my own furever family that likes to go outside and do stuff, go for walks and play ball! Please check me out - I'm real sweet guy that just loves to give kisses and get love in return!!

Bubbles

Bubbles

Bubbles is a sweet 14 year old JRT who found herself at a shelter when her owner moved out of the country. She is healthy and has great house manners. She currently lives in harmony with 7 other dogs but would like a family of her own. She would be best in a home with no small children as she needs the space that a grand older lady deserves. If you'd like to adopt Bubbles, please contact us.

Nexxus

Nexxus

Nexxus is a 10-12 year old female Jack Russell, housebroken. She is an adorable older gal with plenty of energy. She reminds us of a cartoon dog—the way she moves and runs about when excited. She loves being outside, going for leash walks, swimming and sitting in the sun. She has even started doing some agility – enjoying small jumps and the A Frame. Nexxus loves to sit with you while watching TV and at night all you have to do is cover her with a blanket and she is fast asleep. She is cautious when meeting new people but once she is comfortable with someone and they scratch her stomach she will be your friend for life. She will tolerate being in a crate as long as she has a kong! She's been around older children with no issues but I think at her age would prefer a quieter life. Nexxus can be a little toy aggressive if around other dogs so though she lives with other dogs now, this is something to keep in mind. Won't you consider adding Nexxus to your family?

Weston

Murphy

Meet Murphy a/k/a Murphy’s Law!  He is a JRT from Ireland and is 10 years old.  Murphy is still intact and the vet says that he is too old to have the neuter surgery at this point.  He is a very loyal dog who loves to go for long walks and play catch with his squeaky toys.  Don’t let the number fool you as Murphy certainly doesn’t act his age!  Murphy also enjoys car rides where he loves to wear his seatbelt!  At this time, Murphy is in need of a loving family who will give him the unconditional love and attention he needs and deserves.  Murphy is micro chipped and up to date on shots.  He would do best as the only dog.  If you would like to make him part of your family, please call Lois at 908-638-8344.

Bandit

Bandit

Meet Bandit. He is a 12 year old pure bred Jack Russell in need of a home. He is currently located in Howard County, MD. 

Unfortunately, his home life is not conducive to his needs. He owners have tried to make adjustments, but it has become a bit challenging with toddlers/young children in the home. 

He can be possessive or guarded about his bed, toys and food, so he would probably be best suited for a home with older children or no children at all. He has been know to be selective about dogs and cats, but has been good with some after proper introduction. He is very sweet and full of love. He has a lot of terrier energy, so don't let his age fool you. He is neutered and UTD on his shots. He is house broken. 

If you have additional questions or are interested in adopting him, please contact Karen at 443-289-0027.

Spice

Spice

Spice is looking for a new home due to a change in her current family’s living situation.  She is a 3-year-old Jack Russell/Australian Cattle Dog mix weighing about 26 lbs.  She is very sweet and needs someone who can give her the time and attention she deserves! 

Spice loves to go for walks, loves the dog park and has even gone on bike rides so she’d be ideal for someone who is active!  She is spayed, up to date on shots, housebroken and crate trained.  Spice gets along well with dogs her size or smaller but can be a bit intimidated by dogs much larger than her.  She even likes cats but she likes to play with them as if they were dogs too so she might be a little too rough for some felines.  Spice would do best in a home with older kids (10 and older) due to her energy level. 

If you’d like to make Spice the newest addition to your family, please contact Cathy at cathyL65@aol.com or you can call/text at 347-803-9044.  Spice is located in Metuchen, NJ.

Camden

Camden aka "Cam"

Camden aka "Cam" is a 15-month-old JRT who is very energetic, with lots of love and loyalty to give. He is neutered and up to date on all shots and he is crate trained. His favorite things are chewing on bones for hours and laying on top of his human’s chest all snuggled up. Last summer, Camden began to show a little aggression towards other animals and some guests that came to our home. He is great with our two children and other dog but has become very overprotective of our home and us. Camden also has had some submissive urination issues. Due to his aggressiveness and submissive urination issues, we enrolled him in 12 weeks of obedience classes. He knows basic commands, however his aggressive behavior and episodes of submissive urination continue and we are not in a position to enroll him in more specialized training at this time. Rehoming Cam is a very hard decision for our family to make, but because we do not have a fence, we are worried that Camden will accidentally get out and harm someone or another animal. Cam deserves a family who can give him the training and attention he needs. He should also have a fenced in yard where he does not have to be tied up, so he can run and expel his energy. Cam is located in Shrewsbury PA and if you’d like to offer him a forever home, please contact Erica Bettleyon at 410-982-1767 or ebettleyon@gmail.com.

Dibbs

Dibbs

This handsome boy is in need of an experienced JRT owner who can give him the guidance and direction he needs to thrive in a home! strong>Dibbs is a young, nearly 2 years old Jack Russell mix (possibly Beagle) who weighs just over 25 pounds. He is as cute as can be, is friendly, and quite playful. strong>Dibbs simply needs an owner with resource guarding experience. He loves his tennis ball and he won’t guard that but he will guard some toys and stuffed animals.  He does well with consistent training and is eager to please. He does well with limited, supervised playtime with other dogs, as long as no toys are present. This smart boy will be a wonderful companion and is so loving.  He just needs appropriate and consistent training. strong>Dibbs graduated from the BARK Behind Bars prison training program at Lawrenceville Correctional Center in late October. As a prison program graduate, he is crate trained, has great manners, and knows basic commands. Dibbs also learned more tricks than any other graduate in his class!  Now he's ready for the next chapter in life - a forever home of his own. Dibbs is up to date on shots, neutered and is approved for a home with children 16 and older. Please contact Shawn Riester, 804-690-5815 for additional information.  strong>Dibbs is currently with Bandit’s Adoption and Rescue of K9’s in Ashland, VA.

Zoe

Zoe

Zoe is a 13-year-old, full bred Jack Russell Terrier, born from the pedigree of Kettle Creek Terriers, near Westfield, PA. She is in excellent health, all her shots are up to date, and she is spayed. She is also micro-chipped. Zoe is quite energetic for her age, very loyal, and works hard. She loves to get outside and go for walks and hikes, and is very good on a leash. Zoe also loves to just sleep by the fire. She has always been the guardian of our house, and alerts us of any intruders outside. Like many JRTs, she can at times be temperamental. Thus, she would not be an ideal match with other pets or small children, though she has gotten along fine with our son of 6 years, as long as he respects her space, and she was one of two Jacks we had for more than 10 years. Zoe would be an excellent companion for an experienced JRT owner. Perhaps a senior person or couple whose children have grown, and who are in need of a four-legged friend to go walking with? Zoe has lived with a rural family near Leesburg, VA all her life, but because we are now running a home daycare, we must find a new home for her where she does not have to be held in a pen or cage every day as many of our daycare clients are not comfortable with a dog on the premises. If you can provide a good home environment for this wonderful, beautiful dog, please contact Brena with Russell Rescue by email at pottsbrena@gmail.com.

Cashell

Cashell

Cashell is an all-white, broken coat, 5-year-old, purebred Jack Russell Terrier. She is spayed and up-to-date on all shots. Growing up on a small farm has afforded her a lot of outdoor freedom and activity. She is very energetic and loves to run and play : her favorite game is chasing a laser beam. She is the guardian of our property, and alerts us of any intruders. As active as Cashell is, she also loves to snuggle on a lap, watch movies with you on the couch, and cuddle with you in bed at night. She grew up in a house with adults, children, cats, small livestock and poultry and is good with all. Cashell however, has become increasingly jealous of, and temperamental with the other three Jack Russell Terriers. She needs to be in a single doggy home where she gets ALL the attention and would be an excellent companion for an experienced JRT owner with a fenced yard. She would love to have an at-home-mom or dad, and if you can provide this sort of home for this wonderful, loving little dog, please contact emilygmacmillan@gmail.com.
