Elmo's Story...
Hi, I'm Elmo. I am a bouncy little Jack Russell around 5 years old. I am super friendly and outgoing but I can get a little afraid of being picked up and handled. If you take it slow and are patient I will learn to trust you but for now I just enjoy being petting instead of being held. I like to play with toys and I know how to sit for treats. Other dogs are just fine with me but I need a home without children. 5 years old-20lbs. My adoption fee is $150.00 and includes adoption supplies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elmo, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a 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 Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
