DOLLY!'s Story...

This adorable little 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier lady is named Dolly! Dolly was surrendered to Philadelphia's animal control shelter because her previous family couldn't afford to care for her. Luckily, the team at Emeka's Fund, an organization dedicated to helping sick pets and their families heard that Dolly had been surrendered and stepped in to foster her! Dolly was immediately checked by a vet to make sure she wasn't ill. Besides a little arthritis and dirty teeth, Dolly was in great shape!

Dolly is now loving life in foster care, but is really hoping to land something a little more permanent like a forever home! Dolly is currently living with other dogs and gets along with them great! She also previously lived with cats and was appropriate with them as well. Dolly's foster family has nothing but great things to say about this little lady and really enjoys having her around. She's an excellent lab dog who loves to snuggle up on the couch, enjoys playing - especially fetch (she'll even bring the ball to you first to let her know she's ready to play), and is an excellent pillow fort-maker! She loves to make little nests in her crate and will even jump into the laundry hamper to rearrange the towels to be more comfy! What can we say? She likes the finer things in life! Dolly is the perfect combination of sweetness, spunk, and laziness. She enjoys walks around the block, but doesn't like to go much further than that, is always up for a good car ride, and is totally fine with bingo watching Netflix at night. Dolly is also housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go outside. She's also crate trained and not a barker! She'll happily snooze in her crate while you're at work and greet you with a smile as soon as you get home! Dolly would make a great addition to most families, especially those looking for a low-maintenance, sweet and petite dog!

Dolly is currently on a daily anti-inflammatory to help with her stiff joints and thanks to them, has absolutely no trouble jumping up on the bed or climbing her doggy steps onto the couch. She also recently had her teeth cleaned and a couple painful, no-good teeth removed. Dolly has some age-related cloudiness in her eyes which causes her no trouble whatsoever. She's likely feeling better now than she has in a long time!

Dolly is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. She is also negative for heartworm and lymes disease. Interested in meeting her? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DOLLY!, a Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
