Melvin's Info...

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

Melvin's Story...
It is suspected that Melvin sustained trauma to his right eye some time ago. It was never treated. As a result, Melvin has been living with no vision in that eye and possible discomfort. After close examination, it was concluded the eye had to come out to stop any possible complications as he ages. Melvin has gotten very used to vision in one eye only! He runs around happily, just as well as any dog! His special need does NOT slow him down!


Melvin is about 5 years old. He is a sturdy, small jack russell, but all muscle. Melvin is a social boy and likes people and other dogs 'ok'...he will tolerate living with them, but we think he'd prefer not to, and just have some doggie play dates. Melvin has met several male dogs and gets along fine. It is unknown how he is with cats. Melvin is not a barker, not overly high energy. He loves squeaky toys and will play with them for long periods! He likes to walk on a leash and except for constant sniffing...he is great out on walks.


Melvin has been neutered, vaccinated and heart worm tested. He is ready to find a wonderful forever home. Please dont' over look him due to his deformity...he would like a home just as much as any dog! His adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in adopting him, please send an introduction to teddyacres@yahoo.com and we'll send you a screening form.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melvin, a London 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 London, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in London.

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