Spike's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.

Spike's Story...
Howdy, everyone! Spike here. My older sister, Molly, and I lived in a home with our dad, but he didn’t always get along with our mom and was sometimes not as nice as he should have been to her. It wasn’t good for anyone, especially us, so when things got really scary with red and blue lights, we had to be surrendered to the shelter. We’ll just leave it at that.

The awesome folks at Jacks Galore Russell Rescue saw our story—and the fact that we were about to be “put down,” whatever that means—and they couldn’t let that happen. They had us pulled, and one of the vols here at Georgia Jack Russell Rescue came to get us because they were closer and could make a last-minute run to get us.

Molly had tumors on her belly, horrible teeth, and really bad skin issues, so she went straight to the vet. I only had a few skin issues, so I came here to wait for transport.

But then the folks here had this thing called Spring Vol Day. I met a ton of people, who gave me a ton of love, attention and treats and even took my pictures. Some even said, “If we didn’t already have so many dogs …” I don’t know exactly what that means; I guess they wanted to take me home but couldn’t. They just kept telling me how incredibly adorable I am while I went for walks and melted into their arms … something about my “adorable head” on my Jack body.

Eventually, Kennedy’s family did take me home to foster me, and I have been staying with him and his pack since.

Even though I’ve been through a lot, I totally trust people — men and women. I like children, but my foster family recently discovered that I have some nerve issues around my legs and back hips. Anti-anxiety meds (which also help with nerve pain) have been helping greatly, but I could nip a child, if handled or picked up wrong. We wouldn’t want to risk that.

I am UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm negative and around 6-7 years old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a Conyers 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 Conyers, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Conyers.

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