Carol's Info...

I am housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Carol's Story...
Poor Carol was in a high-kill facility with no hope, dry eyes that needed drops but got none and a belly full of puppies just itching to be born. Talk about miserable. I can't imagine.

We rescued her, gave her a comfortable place to have her 6 puppies, cleaned off her eyes and got her on drops (which she may have to have indefinitely) and got to know one of the most gentle and loving little dogs we've ever met!

Carol is on the small side of medium and is around 3 years young. Her six tiny puppies have already been adopted - now it's mama's turn! Our volunteer who's fostering her says Carol is house and crate trained and likes to play with other dogs.

Carol has a case of heartworms which we'll see her through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from her. They're curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Carol is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows she's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carol, a Marietta Feist/Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Feist/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Feist/Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta 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 Marietta 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 Feist/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Feist/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
