Skipper's Story...
Meet Skipper. Our rescue team snagged him and his sister, Ginger, from an overcrowded shelter. He is NOT SHY, very independent and loves to explore. He likes other dogs if they are his size but not bigger dogs and may bark at them on his walks. He loves company and is is very affectionate. He does not acclimate well to strangers in the house and may bark or become agitated if they move around too much, so he is a little territorial. He is housetrained if given access to the outdoors, otherwise - puppy pads. He hasn’t quite figured out the concept of the leash and needs a little more work to be able to walk nicely at heel without dashing off looking for adventures. Skipper likes to chase and retrieve balls. He sleeps comfortably in his crate at night. He is a fast learner and eager to please. He gets along with everybody he meets including his sister, Ginger, who shares his foster home. He is a terrier/wire-haired Jack Russell mix, weighs 8 lbs and is about one year old. Because he is still a kid he likes to jump around excitedly. He can be trained not to do this but, right now, we are thinking that a home without small children would be best for him. Won’t you open up your heart and your home to him?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino 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 Encino 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
