Roxy's Story...
I would hold you in my arms, Chase away your fears. Tell you how much I love you, Throughout the Golden Years (From Golden Years by Robin Murphy)

If ever a piece of poetry mirrored what a sweet older girl needs, these few words are what Roxy needs more than anything. This gentle soul has a sad story to share that tells of the total disregard for life that some people have and thankfully the heroes who step in and see a life to be saved. Roxy is a nine year old Rat Terrier mix who was thrown away at the shelter the day before Thanksgiving. We do not know the reason and her foster mom is unable to find one. These things usually happen because some see pups as disposable due to age. This is what we do know about Roxy. Initially she was traumatized. She was literally pulled into rescue moments before being put down and that too is a story all it's own. Once she was settled into a safe loving foster home, she shined! Roxy loves to go for walks, get dressed up, snuggle and cuddle, and mingle with her foster siblings (older girls don't 'hang out'). She has many more years of love to offer, nine really isn't that old in the Rat Terrier world, it just means she's more mellow. Roxy deserves to be placed in a quiet home by herself or with another senior where she can bask in the glory of her golden years, she has earned it. This little lady has impeccable house manners. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and current on all preventatives. We promised Roxy a loving forever family. We know you are out there somewhere and she's waiting patiently for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxy, a Ocean Springs 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 Ocean Springs, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Ocean Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ocean Springs 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 Ocean Springs 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 Ocean Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
