Alphonse's Story...
Wahoo! Heya friends! I'm just so excited to meet you. I'm an active young man seeking someone who can keep up with my athleticism and drive. So if you've been looking for a running buddy, or even an agility dog, let's talk. When I first came into the SPCA as a stray, I hadn't really been introduced to this whole concept of "manners", but now I'm picking the idea up. I know sit, have learned to fetch, and am starting to figure out this "house-training" idea. Now all I need is a dedicated owner to take me the rest of the way. With my smarts and will to please, I'm sure to make someone an incredible pet. Just know that I'm aware of how smart (and awesome) I am, so might be the kind to test my boundaries a bit. But redirect that energy into constructive play and you will have one happy hound! Please note that as I am still working on manners, and can be a little protective of my food, I am recommended for homes with older kids only (12 and up). If you have other dogs, please talk to the staff about arranging a meet-and-greet. I like other dogs, but am still learning appropriate play so will need a canine sibling that understands that. So if I sound like the high-flying, loving, champ for you, stop by today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alphonse, a Harrisonburg Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Harrisonburg, or seeking a Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Harrisonburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Harrisonburg 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 Harrisonburg 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 Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Harrisonburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
