Bonnie is a sweet JRT mix who is currently living in a foster home in rural SC with her side kick Baby Girl. Bonnie loves to cuddle and gets along great with kids and other dogs. She really enjoys children, and is especially good with the 2.5 year old toddler in ther foster home. She loves story time, so when the kids are getting ready for story time, she'll rush over and sit at their feet to listen as well. She's a nurturer and loves to care for other dogs and her foster family.
Bonnie has a medium amount of energy. She loves to run in the yard with the other dogs, but isn't quite as energetic as some jack russells are. She's both house and crate trained, and walks OK on leash. She's still learning.
Since Bonnie is part of a bonded pair with Baby Girl, we will only adopt them out as a pair. If you are looking for built in pup companions who will bring joy to your home, do great with your kids and keep each other company while you are at work, Bonnie and Baby Girl are an ideal fit.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.
