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.
