Jerry's Story...
There's just something mesmerizing about this sweet and adoring face! It takes only a nano-second to be hooked on this charismatic little guy. Jerry is a love, long on energy and exuberance and so very easy-going. Just over a year old, he has a ton of puppy playfulness yet is maturing and calming down nicely. This boy is smart as a whip and eager to learn and please. Jerry recently completed an 8 week training session in the Puppies 4 Parole program and has his basic commands down well. He's a great dog to walk, no crazy pulling, especially when he is wearing his Easy Walk harness. Jerry is in a foster home with a camp counselor currently and is having a great opportunity to interact with a ton of kids and experience the great outdoors. His foster dad reports that Jerry is so good and quiet in his cabin, he does not even need to be crated. If you are looking for a delightful companion please don't overlook this amazing little dog.

Jerry's adoption fee is $175; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact Helping Strays at 618-282-7387 to arrange a meeting. We would love to show him off!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jerry, a Columbia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Columbia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Columbia.

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