Taffy’s Story
Taffy, a little Jack Russell terrier*, was turned in to a local shelter, where intake photos showed an overweight, scared, subdued little couch potato. She tested positive for heartworms and was on her way to euthanasia.

But little Taffy was just suffering from some bad neglect. She was rescued by Friends of Rescue and welcomed into a foster home, where her real problem was discovered: She wasn’t obese at all, she was extremely wormy! The intestinal parasites were treated thoroughly and she was spayed, then she began her heartworm treatment.

What a makeover! Once Taffy began feeling better, she turned into a healthy, sparkling little terrier! She trimmed down and regained her zippy love of life. No couch potato here! She is a typical Jack Russell about 3 years old, weighing about 18-20 lbs., and she loves sniffing in the backyard for squirrels and chipmunks. She’s alert and ready to investigate anything, but is not very barky. She gets along great with other dogs and manages to ignore the cats (most of the time). She is super friendly and people are her favorite thing!

If you’re looking for a small, bright, lively little girl who can go with you on walks or snuggle with you on the sofa, Taffy may be your girl!

Taffy is still in the final stages of her heartworm treatment. While she’s waiting to be retested, she can be with your family as a foster-to-adopt – sort of like “lease-to-own.” FOR will continue to supervise the treatment and pay Taffy’s veterinary costs while she settles in with her new fostering family. At the end of the heartworm treatment period, she will be retested at FOR’s expense and when confirmed negative, the adoption can be completed and she’ll be yours forever!

Taffy is spayed and current on rabies, distemper, parvo and bordetella vaccinations. She’s been microchipped and is ready to meet her new family! If you’re interested in meeting sweet little Taffy, email and ask about her. She is fostered in Huntsville, Alabama, and until the final testing for the heartworm treatment, will only be fostered/adopted within the greater Huntsville-Madison County area.

*We do not know if she’s purebred, but she certainly could be! Maybe when she’s YOUR dog, you can get her DNA tested!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Taffy, a Huntsville Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) 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, Medium) for sale in Huntsville, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Huntsville.

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