Turner's Story...
Hello, two legged-peeps, I’m Turner. I was at rescue for a few months in the summer of 2015, but you didn’t hear much about me because I had some troubles going on. I know, hard to believe looking at me – I’m freakin’ gorgeous!

I was hit by a truck—yes, a truck—when I was younger. My family could not afford to help me, and my back hips did not heal well like they should have. I was only 2-3, but I had dealt with pain for most of my life. I was very stiff legged and could barely lift my leg to pee … although, trust me, I tried to about 200x a day. After all, I’m a Jack and I’m a boy! Must. Claim. Everything. Because I was uncomfortable, I could be snippy sometimes and I snapped at people and other dogs on more than one occasion.

That, however, is all behind me now, thanks to some therapy and medication! I’ve been in a temporary foster home and am doing great. I don’t mind being touched and loved on and get along fine with the other dogs. I thought I had a home a couple of months ago, but things haven’t quite worked out. We’re still working with our sister rescue to place me in a northern home, but they are listing me again here to let you know I’m still available. Some of you had expressed an interest in me way back when.

Overall, I’m a wonderful, smart boy who just wants to have fun. I am (again) all Jack and would do best in a home with someone who is Jack-savvy and understands that, even though my hip will have some permanent weakness, I am still gung-ho when it comes to playing and running! Thanks to living in foster care, I am fully house- and crate-trained and get along great with other dogs and all humans now.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Turner, 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.
