ADOPTED ON 08-26-15 - Tintin is a 6 year old, 15 pound Jack Russell Terrier who lived a happy and contented life with his beloved human mom. He enjoyed walks, playing ball, sitting in her lap, and watching the birds and squirrels through the window. He was spoiled with treats and slept in her bed with her every night. Quite a life, and one all pets deserve. Sadly, the only life he has known ended when tragedy occurred and his “mom” passed away.
Toward the end, Tintin became stressed due to so many nursing staff coming in and out of his home and the attention once lavished on him was now gone. Imagine how confusing that is for a dog? He is currently on medication for stress, both of which developed due to the illness. We are confident he will be able to go off it as soon as he finds a new stable and loving home.
Tintin is good with cats and older children, and has no health issues. He behaves well on a leash, and it is unknown whether he can be crated, as he was never in one, but we are told he is a quick learner. Please open your heart and home to this little guy so he can return to being the happy, loving companion that he once was.
Jack Russell Terriers get along fine with the whole family, but young children should be taught not to tease or hurt them. With the proper focus and training—excellent members of the family: loyal, loving and fun.

ABOUT THE BREED
A Jack Russell can fill your days with laughter and love, but only if you can provide him with the attention, training, supervision, and structure he needs. They may be small, but what the Jack Russell Terrier lacks in size, he more than makes up for in energy and love. The Jack Russell is now a treasured companion to many households around the world. But if you’re planning on bringing one of these dogs home, you had better love to give belly rubs. Full of energy and exuberance, the Jack Russell Terrier is lively, busy, and enjoys mental challenges. Once trained, you’ll find that the Jack Russell Terrier is a delight and is always up for amusement.
Friendliness toward dogs and friendliness toward humans are two completely different things. Some dogs may attack or try to dominate other dogs even if they're love-bugs with people; others would rather play than fight; and some will turn tail and run. Breed isn't the only factor; dogs who lived with their littermates and mother until at least 6 to 8 weeks of age, and who spent lots of time playing with other dogs during puppyhood, are more likely to have good canine social skills.
Being gentle with children, sturdy enough to handle the heavy-handed pets and hugs they can dish out, and having a blasé attitude toward running, screaming children are all traits that make a kid-friendly dog. All dogs are individuals however they're not a guarantee of how any breed or individual dog will behave. Dogs from any breed can be good with children based on their past experiences, training on how to get along with kids, and personality. No matter what the breed or breed type, all dogs have strong jaws, sharp pointy teeth, and may bite in stressful circumstances. Young children and dogs of any breed should always be supervised by an adult and never left alone together, period
If you have the time and patience to devote to him, the Jack Russell has many qualities that make him an ideal family dog. He's devoted to his people and loves being with them. His heritage makes him an excellent jogging companion once he's full grown. Active older children will find him to be a happy and affectionate playmate.
The Jack Russell Terrier is a small, compact agile, brave terrier, who is good at hunting small animals like mice. Jack Russell Terriers are a tough little dog who is clean and a convenient size for a companion. These friendly dogs are bold, athletic and clever. They are courageous at work, and at home they are playful, exuberant and overwhelmingly affectionate. This breed is an independent and energetic terrier and loves attention.
