Hi, My name is Max!
Jack Russell Terrier For Adoption San Francisco
I am a very sweet Jack Russell Terrier. At age 14, I am very healthy and have many years of love and companionship left to offer. I weigh 20 pounds and have been neutered and am up to date on my vaccinations. I still have plenty of zip, and love to play fetch and go for walks with my humans.
I’m quite healthy, really. I have a slight limp at times as a result of a ligament injury that I sustained about 4 years ago. I had surgery to repair the problem. I also have some age-related hearing loss, but it doesn’t hold me back at all. For a 14 year old pooch – I am really in good shape.
I live in San Francisco with my owners, who love me so much. They recently welcomed a child, who is now two. I have never really adjusted to the little one. He makes me nervous, and as a result, my owners are concerned about the two of us in the home together.
They see that I have not been myself since the little one arrived. They want what is best for me, and are dearly hoping to find me a home with people who will cherish me, an where there are no babies or small children.
I would love to have some older kids to play with, and people who have lots of time and energy for me. I am not a whirling dervish, but I do like to be active and have plenty of energy.
I would love to have a fenced back yard, but that is not a deal-breaker, so long as you have the time to take me for walks. I’m a really special, devoted little guy, and I can’t wait to charm my way into your heart and home.
I will bring all my toys and belongings with me to my new home, including my tophat and tie, which I love to wear when entertaining your guests! (Yes, I am a real “party animal”!)
Please offer me the loving, forever home that I need and very much deserve!
