Chester's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Chester's Story...
This is Chester. He is a 9 year old, neutered male, rough coat, purebred Jack Russell Terrier.

This little guy was taken to the vet by his owner to be euthanized. She said he had lost all control of his bodily functions. Thankfully, my vet decided that rather than euthanize the dog on her word, he would keep Chester in a kennel and watch him for a few days. While the dog was confined, the vet caught a urine sample. When tested, he found Chester had struvite crytsals in his urine thus causing the poor little fella to have to urinate frequently.

Now Chester is on a special Prescription food specifically formulated to dissolve the urinary crystals. Now he is happy, healthy, and whole! The only restriction being that he will need to stay on a special diet of Prescription c/d food for the rest of his life. (This food is not terribly expensive and is available at any vet's office. Chester eats about 1/2 a cup twice a day).

In the Meantime, Chester needed a place to go so that he would be "Out if Harm's Way." So we have taken this little jewel into foster care.

Chester is about 17 lbs. He is impeccably housetrained. This little guy loves everyone and never meets a stranger. According to the vet tech who helped me get him to safety, Chester loves to play ball, he especially loves men, and was in a home with three small boys. He also gets along with all 11 of his inside foster siblings.

As a 9 year old, Chester is still spunky and energetic but not hyper or mischievious in the least. He is a sweet lapdog who is simply a joy to be around. Chester doesn't chew on things or bother anything around the house. He does love to eat, so whoever adopts him will have to be careful not to overfeed him.

If you are interested in Chester, please contact Melinda McMillion at heart4rescue@wmconnect.com. You will be asked to complete and return a Potential Home Questionnaire and provide 2 personal references. A vet reference will also be required.

This dog is located in Spartanburg, SC. You must be able to drive here to pick her up in person. No transport or shipping can or will be arranged.

His adoption fee is $175.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chester, a Inman 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 Inman, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Inman.

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