Say hello to Rusty. Rusty is smart, sweet & spunky; a classic Jack Russell terrier! Unfortunately, Rusty found himself being shuffled around after he lived in his first home for 8 years. The reason - all the children went off to college and the parents had no time anymore. Although he was confused when he found himself homeless and with a foster family, he quickly warmed up and fit right in with his new surroundings.

Upon his arrival, we found that Rusty is a happy- go - lucky little guy. He is extremely loveable. He is friendly and affectionate with people and other dogs and he especially loves children. He has typical Jack Russell energy but also loves to cuddle with you while you are watching television or reading on the couch. His favorite activities are chewing on his toys and he loves kisses and belly rubs. Rusty has a great personality and is eager to learn and also to make you smile.

Rusty is completely housebroken, neutered and up to date on all shots. He also walks nicely on a leash and will sit on command.

If you think you are the right family for Rusty, he would love to make your house his new home so fill out an application today. Or, come to one of our adoption days at Petco.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Raritan 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 Raritan, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Raritan.

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