Tessa's Story...
Hello, everyone! Little Tessa here. You bet, I’m adorbs! I arrived at the rescue a few weeks ago, but was very scared of everything and everyone. You see, I’m not very old (maybe a year, if that) and everything is still new to me. Instead of embracing it like the little Terrier/Corgi I am, I was letting everything scare me.

So, off to “puppy camp” I went for a little while to learn from Isis Maria and former GA JRT rescue, Chad, of Heavenly Pet Photography. They’re (OK, their humans are) really good at fostering pups like me who need to learn a lot of things — everything from sharing toys to trusting people. I surprised everyone with how great I already was at house training! No help needed there. Yay! I also showed them how great I walk on a leash.

I had a great time while I was there and truly learned to be a puppy. I learned commands and tricks — and, of course, I tried to show them that I was smarter than them sometimes. Silly humans, I’m a Terrier! Most of all? I learned trust and that people I don’t know are OK. By the time I left, cuddling was one of my favorite things to do.

I’m now back at rescue and ready to roll to a new home. Although I’ve learned a lot of good stuff, I’m still a puppy and need a lot of positive reinforcement and training from someone who has raised puppies — especially JRT/Corgi puppies. We’re smarter than your average Jack, you know … or, at least, we think we are.

I still like to rush through doors, dig under fences, and treat human hands like toys — you know, all stuff that can easily be corrected with patience and consistence. I’m also always wound up, so it’s important I learn to take some time outs to relax — or that you’re high-energy like me. (Wink, wink) I did sleep well in my crate overnight, though.

As mentioned above, I will need to be fostered or adopted by an experienced “puppy raiser.” Because I can still be mouthy, no small children, please.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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