Tony's Info...

I am good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tony's Story...
Tony is about 5-6 years old. He is believed to be a Jack Russell terrier mix. He is a little overweight and currently working on loosing some excess pounds! As you can see Tony is missing all his black hair. When he arrived in our program he was seen by the vet who believes that Tony has Canine Black Hair Follicular Dysplasia. This is a genetic disorder that causes him to loose only his black hair. Most likely it will never grow back but doesn't affect him at all! He likes to wear a sweater to keep warm and he may need some sunscreen put on in the summer to help protect his skin. When visiting the vet a complete blood panel was run and all his bloodwork looked great! He had two nasty teeth removed as well. Tony is a sweet boy, loves to ride in the car and hang out with his people. He is crate trained and doing really well on house training! (most days he doesn't have accidents) He does well with all the other dogs in his foster home and likes the kids too!

$175.00 adoption donation ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases (if old enough) , microchipped and vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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