Bo's Story...
Bo was recently surrendered to the Bucks County SPCA by his owner. She had been his third owner and had been having on-going problems with Bo’s behavior for the 2 months that she had owned him. Bo would snap or growl at her often: one time when she picked him up to put him in the crate, another time when she was closing the crate door behind him, and often if she raised her voice when verbally correcting him for having pee accidents in the house. The incident that pre-empted his surrender was when he got his toe nail caught and she and her son were helping to unhook the nail-he bit her son which resulted in bite marks but no broken skin, and he also bit her which did break skin and draw blood. She quarantined Bo for 10 days in home and then surrendered him to the shelter. Bo got along great with the owner’s adult son outside of the toe nail incident. He also got along great with her small dachshund and has been calm and appropriate on dog tests with other dogs at the shelter.
Bo has also snapped and growled at shelter staff once he staff tried to remove his collar and then also when attempting to trim nails. Staff and volunteers are able to leash him up for daily walks and training sessions. Due to Bo’s behavior concerns, we are looking for a Jack Russell savvy rescue to pull Bo. If interested, please contact Karen Owens, Director of Animal Behavior at Bucks County SPCA in PA at kowens@bcspca.org or 267-347-4674.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bo, a Blue Bell 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 Blue Bell, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Blue Bell.

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