Porkchop's Story...
Hi, I'm in need of some help. Unfortunately, my boyfriend was driving and witnessed this poor little Jack Russell being ditched on the side of the road by a van that then sped off 😔. He is very sweet, well behaved and healthy. We nicknamed him "Porkchop" for now. He's been staying with me for a couple days and he doesn't make much noise, is potty trained and doesn't chew or dig from what I can tell. He is only 20 lbs, but plays well with my 90 lb Weimaraner. I believe he is full grown about 3-4 yrs old. I wish I could keep him myself, but I'm moving to California in a couple months and I let my own house go already, so I'm currently staying with family until we move and they are not dog people. Do you have any available fosters for him until he can be adopted out? Thanks in advance. Please contact

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Porkchop, a Austin Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Austin, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Austin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
