Zalie's Story...
*UPDATE : Zalie has now found a foster home and is no longer at the vet clinic! Please email if you would like to give this little girl a chance to have a forever home!

Meet Zalie! Her situation is a sad one and one that is too often encountered in our society on a daily basis. She was an owner surrender, because of lack of time from her family at only 3.5.

We found her a wonderful foster home, who took great care of her and exercised her daily, but Zalie ended up "fear-nipping", and since the family did not have much experience with dogs, they did not find themselves equipped to deal with such a situation. She is now boarded at the vet in a cage in a new and unknown environment until we find a solution for her. We have contacted her former family once more and they can not take her back until we find an appropriate foster again, do not want her back and have no interest in what will happen to her, even suggesting euthanasia. We are a no-kill rescue and have seen many dogs make such progress in the right hands and have so much hope for Zalie that she can one day find out that not everyone is out to "get her".

Zalie is a girl who likes to come to you herself. She can be anxious and show fear until she can fully trust you. She needs someone to take care of her, lead her in an appropriate way, and who has the expertise with such temperaments. On the plus side, she is very disciplined - knows tons of commands, is crate-trained, can be home alone for long periods of time, loves to be active with people, and loves toys and playing fetch!

If you think you are this family or person to help, or if you know someone who would be capable of helping her, if they could please contact us at We would be forever grateful for her to leave her cage and have a new chance at life once again!

Don't let them down. End the vicious cycle. Save a life. Foster or adopt today, gain a beautiful soul forever.


Ne les laissez pas tomber. Mettez fin à ce cercle vicieux. Sauvez une vie. Adoptez ou devenez famille d’accueil aujourd’hui, embellissez votre âme pour toujours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zalie, a Montreal 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 Montreal, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Montreal.

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