Phoebe is a two-year-old tri-color, smooth coat female Jack Russell mix, weighing a muscular 17 pounds. Phoebe came to us from our rescue partner who pulled her off craigslist. This delightful girl was living in an apartment and not getting much exercise, and the person who had gotten her as a puppy did not have any time for her.
This young Jack cross is extremely athletic, and really enjoys long walks starting quickly but then meandering at a lovely pace. You will not find the intensity of a purebred Jack Russell but a mellower dog who loves snuggle time with her humans. However, she also loves to partake in outdoor activities with a robust 3-mile hike in the morning and enjoys some ball tossing as well.
She seems to do quite well with other dogs, she is very well house trained and she is perfectly happy riding in a crate. In the car, Phoebe is quiet and curious on the road. A star at the vet, everyone loved her.
Phoebe is very difficult to photograph and the pictures do not do her justice, her delicate beauty does not shine through. She has warm, curious, kind eyes, and an adorable little “soft” face.
One needs to meet her to appreciate this mix, a gem of a dog waiting for that special someone to keep her active and loved.
