Jack is a wonderful purebred Jack Russell Terrier who is only 5 years old and weighs 12 pounds.  This loving boy is the most loyal and gentle dog ever.  Jack is very good with children, great with other dogs and even cats too.  This little guy lost his home and loving mom because of a foreclosure on her house and her moving to a no-dog rental property.  Jack’s world has been turned upside down but we know that love and a forever promise of a new home and family would make him happy once more.  He is housetrained, crate trained and just a joy to be around.  He is a great snuggle bug and loves to sleep right by your side.  Jack is a kisser, a hugger and a dog that is not hyper but amazingly calm for his breed.  Please help us find him the best home ever!   PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- DC

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?

Our Adoption Process...

Most all our dogs are fostered in Tennessee and transport up to the Northeast or New England. Our fees start at $500 and can be higher depending on the dog and circumstances for their vetting. All fees cover the health certificate, transportation up to designated places for families to pick up their pre-adopted dog, spay/neuter, rabies, all shots, fecal and dewormings, microchip, complete vet check up and 4 way heartworm test if dogs are older than 8 months.
