Mark's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mark's Story...
Mark is an funny, goofy, loving little chihuahua mix who came into rescue with his brother Matthew. We'd love to find Mark and Matthew a forever home together but would consider separating them for the right family. Mark is about 8 months old and we are estimating his birthday as March 1, 2016. He is less than 10 pounds right now and we expect that he will get no larger than 12 pound when full grown. He is full of love and energy, and gets along great with all dogs, cats and people that he meets. He is paper trained but will need an adopter who is willing to be patient with him as he learns about going outside to do his business. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations (rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parvo, parainfluenza and bodetella), and microchipped. He is heartworm negative and ready for a forever family. For a family that would consider keeping Mark and Matthew together, we would accept a discounted adoption fee on the pair. If you think Mark might be the right dog for your family, email today for an adoption application!

Please, you MUST visit the following link BEFORE emailing for further information. If you'd like to find out more information about our adoption procedure or to apply for this dog visit http://www.poochesonthemove.net/dixie-pet-underground.html

Or e-mail adoptions@dixiepetunderground.org to request an adoption application, or visit our website at www.dixiepetunderground.org. 

Once we receive your complete application, an adoption counselor will call you within 48 hours of receipt of the application. During the adoption interview, the adoption counselor will tell you more about the puppy and our adoption processes, as well as answer any questions you have.

Dogs and puppies are up-to-date on their vaccinations, spayed/neutered, de-wormed, treated for fleas/ticks and heartworm negative before leaving rescue. You will receive complete medical records for your dog or puppy at the time of adoption.

The adoption fee is $500 and covers the cost of all veterinary care and transportation to your area.

Our dogs and puppies are delivered via a USDA-certified van transport and receive an Interstate Health Certificate -- issue by a licensed, accredited veterinarian -- no more than 10 days before the dog or puppy leaves rescue.

All of our dogs and puppies come into rescue from the "death row" of animal shelters in the south, or are owner surrenders or strays who were "pound bound" before coming into rescue. Adopting a dog or puppy from the Dixie Pet Underground Railroad means you are truly part of a partnership to save the life of the dog or puppy that you welcome into your family.

Our dogs and puppies are fostered at our rescue in Tennessee, meaning that it isn't possible to meet the dog or puppy before adoption. Our adoption counselor works with you to do everything possible to ensure that there is a good match between the family and the dog. We have had several hundred dogs adopted using this process and most of the time, it results in happy puppies and happy people.

If for any reason an adoption is not successful, the Dixie Pet Underground Railroad will work with the adopter to find the best possible solution for the dog and the adopting family.

We can provide contact information for adopters in your area who can tell you about their experience partnering with the Underground Railroad to save the life of a dog and make the animal a part of their family. 

We look forward to hearing from you and working with you to find the right dog for your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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