My story

Like a challenge? Upsie is an extremely frightened 2yo. Takes time to warm up. Does not lead or want to be picked up but will give kisses from your lap. Great with other dogs. Upsie needs someone to take him into their home and work one on one with him and let him learn to trust. He needs someone who will not expect fast results, but be thrilled with the tiny steps he will make. Upsie has been with one of our experienced fosters for a few weeks after spending too much time in boarding. He is quite the comedian. He likes to roll into your lap to get pets. He also likes to hear how good of a boy he is! 

Available dogs are met by pre-approved adopters ONLY after a match is made.

More about this rescue

Russell Rescue is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization. It was started in 2008 by Mary Ruth Rogers of Columbia, TN. Our mission is to save and re-home unloved, abandoned and abused dogs, especially the Jack Russell terrier. Most of our dogs come from high kill shelters in Tennessee, and other nearby states.
