My story

**BASIL HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** We would like to introduce our newest rescues, a fun-loving and feisty litter of 4 sweet Terrier mix pups. Pal's Place rescued these adorable little guys from an overburdened animal control facility in eastern Kentucky. Their breed is unknown, but they may have some Jack Russell and Beagle in their background. They are about 14 weeks old (8/3) and weigh around 10 pounds. Given their current age/weight, we estimate they will be in the 20-30 pound range when fully mature. Three females (Berkely, Beatrix, Basil) and one male (Binx) are in the litter. Terriers are known for their courageous, independent, intelligent, and mischievous personalities, and these guys are no exception. The pups in this litter are all spirited, outgoing, energetic, and confident and will thrive in active households that can keep them busy! They get along well with other dogs and are working on their crate training and housebreaking in their foster home. Berkely, Basil, Beatrix, and Bink are spayed/neutered, up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and started on flea and heartworm prevention. They are ready and anxious to meet their new families!

• Basil's adoption fee to the rescue is $475. She is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines. Basil and her siblings can be visited by appointment once an adoption application is submitted and approved by the rescue. To complete an adoption application online, visit or email for an application or more information. We cannot place holds on our dogs for any reason. Please do not apply unless you are ready to welcome a new member into the home within three days of applying.

• Pal's Place adoption fees start at $475 for puppies and $375 for dogs aged six months or older. This fee helps to cover medical expenses needed to prepare dogs for adoption (vaccines, microchips, spay/neuter surgeries, etc.), feeding, transportation, and general care for the dogs. Pal's Place is 100% reliant on donations to care for our rescued dogs.

Why adoption is a great option

Basil (ADOPTED!), a Chicago Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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