Paco's Info...

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

Paco's Story...
My name is Paco Rabanne, but my friends just call me “Paco,” and I am 2 years old.

About a month ago, my owner decided he no longer wanted me. No reason, just dropped me off at the pound without even a second thought. I really don’t take up too much room; I’m small and barely weigh 20 pounds. I am not going to get any bigger and I’m not sure what I did wrong to make him hate me so much as to take me to doggy jail.

Apparently my previous owners told the shelter that I bit a teenager, I don’t remember doing that and if I did, I’m sure it was because I was either “play biting” or being taunted and defending myself. I would never bite unless provoked. Get to know me and you’ll realize that I was probably playing, I love to play!

I was in jail with no bail for about two weeks and then I was put on the “risk list” scheduled for euthanization. I’ve been told that I’m actually pretty lucky, most “Owner Turn-Ins” as my “type” are called, are usually kept alive for no more than three days. Must have been my cuddly cute fur and my good disposition.

Ken-Mar Rescue got the call that I needed help and they said they’d do all they could to get me networked and sourced to a great, new, “fur-ever” home. They promised (and I believe them) that they will do whatever it takes so that I will end up in a home where they’ll love me REALLY “fur-ever” and never, ever even think of giving me up!

So here I am!

A little more about me . . .

I love walks and really thrive when I have them so that I can release all of my puppy energy and sleep well at night.

I really look forward to those walks!

My owner worked 8 hours a day, 5 days a week so I am used to the work schedule of most people and can be by myself but I LOVE to be with people once they are home.

I get along with humans and need a true “pack leader” to show me the ropes in life. I get along great with dogs equal to my size and compatible with my energy because I love to "rough house" to let off energy. I’m not sure how I feel about cats since I’ve never had them as siblings.

I am up to date with all my shots and I am neutered, micro chipped and all ready to go. Please complete the Adoption Questionnaire so that we can meet soon.

PLEASE NOTE: Paco has a very strong hunting instinct (squirrels, lizards, rabbits, etc.) and is a very athletic Jack Russell, meaning he will need to have walks or runs daily to let off all of his energy.

The ideal home for Paco would be one with a huge yard to play in where he would be the only child to a very active family with no children or would be a sibling dog to a similar-sized canine so that he could "rough house" and let off energy.

Paco is a very good candidate for training because his social skills need development, especially when it comes to interacting with small animals. Paco is a great guardian and watchdog. He will thrive with a strong pack leader that will show him the ropes in life and that will reassure him that he will never be abandoned again.

True to his breed, Paco is a pure bred, Jack Russell "Pudding." This version of Jack Russell includes a rough coat and shorter legs. More on the breed here:

BREED: Jack Russell Terrier "Pudding," approx 20 lbs, 2 years, neutered male, golden rust & white

OBSESSIONS: Rawhide Chicken Treats

NAUGHTIEST DEED: Turn into a raving lunatic if I don’t get my daily walks!

SPECIAL TALENT: If there's a job to do, like hunting for a bird or small animal, I'm your guy!

FAVORITE JOB: Running with you alongside your bike if you don't go too fast so I can keep up.

KNOWN ACHIEVEMENTS: Being a constant companion no matter what.. I also like to "chill" after a long day of exercise, I really look forward to those "cozy" times when I can just relax and focus on the activities for tomorrow.

You too can help save a dog's life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Paco, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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