Jack is a 10-year-old black and white smooth coat male jack Russell terrier who weighs too much!! He came in at 31, and now he weighs a thinning 22 pounds!!! Already slimmed down in just a few weeks. Jack’s human is quite elderly and no longer able to take care of him because she uses a walker and could not let him out without them getting tangled. His mom was very upset but knew she could no longer take care of him so we welcomed him into rescue.
This Jack Russell is a very very dear boy, extremely loving, and well house trained, there is no doubt that he has always been loved.
Jack gets along with all dogs and is currently in with the sanctuary with 14 other jacks because of lack of kennel space. He is enjoying all the exercise and running around with all the dogs. Jack has become much more active since he has lost quite some weight and enjoys running around with all his pals. He is also a very good nap taker! We find him curled up in one of the open crates in the bedroom in a quiet corner snoring away
This senior misses his person so much, and lets it be known that he loves to be snuggled on the sofa, preferably with just a few dogs and his humans. Jack is very good with the vet, is extremely healthy except for lots of senior lumps and bumps and had a dental where he lost a few teeth. Once he loses that final weight, he will be as fit as ever and ready to take on the world.
He rides well in the car, and does fine in a crate. A soft and warm spot once again for this delightful senior to know the love he misses, would be ideal. Jack deserves more out of his remaining years than being stuck in a kennel!!
