Dalton's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Dalton's Story...
(Yes, Orie and Dalton are just as handsome as their Patrick Swayze "North & South" and "Roadhouse" namesakes!)

Senior, Beagle, 12 year old Orie AND Senior, JRT, 12 year old Dalton, arrived to RRR after they were left behind in an apartment building. Their previous owner was evicted and he did not take him along. Animal control in OH took them to a shelter where they spent a month waiting to be adopted without anyone considering him because of their age.
Orie & Dalton, are ready to relax TOGETHER in a forever home after all of this non-sense they has been put through at their old age. Orie is very independent and likes to meander around the yard, sleep on the couch, and take treats gently. Orie is fully vetted, received a dental surgery to remove 15 teeth and clean his remaining teeth, neutered, and micro chipped. Dalton lacks confidence without Orie and becomes scared in new situations when Orie is not around to comfort him or show him how to be brave. Dalton has tremors which requires him to take Xanax to help minimize them. Dalton really enjoys sleeping and cuddling on the couch. He is fully vetted, neutered, and micro chipped.
Orie & Dalton like other dogs, enjoys human company and we believe they will be happy without any children in the home due to their old age and Dalton's tendency to become bonded with his caregivers. We do not know if Orie & Dalton like cats, but we are able to make a home visit to meet and greet with any human or animal that would like to be introduced to this pair.

We stepped up to help these TWO seniors find a retirement home that will be loving and caring for the remainder of their days. Please consider adopting Orie & Dalton ! You can apply for him here: http://www.rutherfordrescueranch.org/adoption-application.html.
We know it is a tall order to adopt out two seniors together, so please share with your friends and groups to get the word out about our senior "Patrick Swayze" duo !

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dalton, a Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Pittsburgh.

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