Ethan's Story...
The best (and preferred) method of contact for quick response is by way of e-mail ( Please read dog’s entire bio before contacting rescue.

SEE VIDEO ALSO ON THIS PAGE! (The video was taken when Ethan was brand new to the rescue; the bio reflects his current personality once he settled in and adjusted and his little personality finally came out).

Ethan is friendly, intelligent, and playful one-year-old Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix. He weighs about 8 lbs. He can be vocal when playing with other dogs, or letting me know where there is someone at the door, however, he is otherwise quiet. He can sometimes be a bit shy when meeting strangers, but soon warms up especially if you want to throw a ball or play tug of war with him! He is happy to greet you and receive one of his favorite things – belly rubs! Ethan loves to wrestle and play chase with the other dogs. He and his foster brother play for several hours in the morning when he first gets out of his crate (he sleeps quietly in a crate at night but tends to whine when he wants out in the morning). He is good with children but tends to chase the cats here. He just wants to play with them!

Ethan is potty-trained (though potty reinforcement is needed in any new environment), learned the doggy door in one day, and knows all his basic commands, sit, stay, lay down, and even “Go to bed.” He enjoys his walks and does well with a small harness. He is not destructive or a chewer though he does love his raw hide chews. At the end of the day, Ethan will snuggle on the couch next to me while I watch T.V. He would probably love to snuggle in a human bed as well; but is happy "to go to bed" for the night in his crate. Ethan is a very happy little guy!!!

Ethan would do best in a home with another dog who could play with him, snuggle with him, and be his friend and companion. But though he loves the company of another dog, he is also quite people-oriented, and likes to follow the humans all around the house. Cuddling with the humans for “cuddle time” is also a must! Ethan is not a dog who would like to be all alone, but if he is to be an only dog in the home, we would like to find a home where the humans are around more often than not, and who will enjoy setting up play dates or outings to the dog park.

Ethan is neutered, fully vaccinated, including rabies, de-wormed, and micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ethan, a Yorba Linda Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in Yorba Linda, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Yorba Linda.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Yorba Linda 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 Yorba Linda 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Yorba Linda paves the way for another one to be saved.
