Skipper's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Skipper's Story...
Skipper is a nearly one year old neutered male Jack Russell/Maltese mix. He came from the county shelter where he and 6 other dogs had been abandoned. They appear to have all come from a puppy mill and most were filthy and completely matted. Skipper was better than most of the others. He was terrified at first and avoided any human contact. Within a week of staying in our grooming shop/vet clinic and taking him out on a harness, he has become nearly housetrained and seeks attention from people now. He is very playful and loves toys. He tosses them in the air to play by himself. He is great with Gilligan, who has been his kennel buddy since we got them.

Skipper is heartworm negative and current on his vaccinations. He has been dewormed and neutered. Now he just needs a new home to realize what a dog's life really should be! (AE)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Albany 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 Albany 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/Maltese breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Albany paves the way for another one to be saved.
