Zico's Information:

Little Zico is a 4 yr old 22 lb Jack Russel Terrier mix and just about the sweetest boy you've ever met. He was found as a stray in Tennessee, full of ticks, fleas, and cuts, about to be put to sleep. He has known little, if any, love in his past. Thanks to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, Zico is now up to date on all his shots and living at a foster home in Philadelphia - but is looking for a forever home. He is not motivated by food or toys, he simply just wants a pet, a kiss, and an occasional hug. Zico sheds very little, is fully housebroken (ZERO accidents!), knows his name and can maneuver stairs like any seeing dog, he just needs to familiarize himself with the space first. In fact, he ascends & descends the 15 stairs to the 2nd floor just for fun. He trots in the park grass & when people stop to pet him, he puts on his charm and they ask, "Are you sure he has NO sight?!" in disbelief. He's a low-key guy that likes to sleep, isn't fazed by fireworks, thunder, door knocking/bell, mailman, etc. Great with cats, dogs and people of all ages. Anyone that meets him falls in love with this little guy immediately. Zico would be an amazing and fulfilling addition to any family. Thanks to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, Zico has received a second chance to change his luck.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zico, a Madison 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 Madison, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Madison.

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