Jack's Info...

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

Jack's Story...
Jack is a super sweet, happy, affectionate old guy who transferred into our Sammi Fund for Seniors program. He is almost completely blind - we think he may see some shadows, and are planning to measure him for a blind dog halo so he won't bump his nose as frequently. He has some limited hearing, higher sounds are easier for him, but he mostly does a great job navigating his surroundings using his nose. He weighs less than 20 pounds, doesn't care much for being carried but enjoys exploring on leash or on his own, and is an easy keeper. He would be great in pretty much any family, though would prefer not to have toddlers only because he can't see them coming, and toddlers don't always understand the needs of a blind senior non-stuffed animal (grin). He is about 10 years old.

Jack had 14 teeth extracted shortly after arriving at Forget Me Not, and is pretty much toothless now. He eats canned food (he prefers pate style rather than chunks) well, with a little fish oil for his only current supplement, and he loves soft, small treats. His senior blood panel looks great, with no areas of concern. He is housetrained, though needs to go out fairly frequently, so will enjoy having a dog door to his fenced yard, or a person home with him who can take him outside regularly. Jack does well on leash, and has been good with other dogs and non-reactive to the kitties he has met.

Jack does well even on stairs - he has a little set of stairs to get up to his shelter kennel, and has learned where they are and how to use them - but since he can't see, you will need to keep him on leash for several weeks and teach him the layout of your home so he will know where stairs and other obstacles are located. He doesn't let his lack of vision bring him down - he enjoys everything in his day, from pets and cuddles from the volunteers, to exploring new areas of the dog yards, to meals and treats. Jack always greets us with a smile! He has lots of life left to share his joy with you and your family, and deserves a great home that will have fun showing him all sorts of new adventures. Let's find Jack that home where he can have new experiences that make the last years of his life the best years! Even just setting up a "treat scavenger hunt" in your own backyard would be a wonderful gift for Jack... and while giving a blind senior these moments of joy, you just may find yourself filled with unexpected joy of your own.

Jack comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $50, or SENIOR for SENIOR - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee); more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jack, a Republic Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Republic, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Republic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Republic 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 Republic 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
