ADOPTED ON 11-12-14 – Basil will be traveling to his foster home in the north soon.  His southern foster mom tells Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. that he is a wonderful dog that is good with children and dogs. She said that he is extremely cheerful, devoted and loving dog. He has an exceptional happy spirit, does all that you ask him to do and can be fearless. He loves any game you want to play with him—his new family will have a true companion and forever friend. He is HW negative, up-to-date on all vaccinations and neutered. He will not need any vaccinations for a year. His northern foster mom will update us on how he is doing when he gets up north.

Basil has a wonderful loving soul. If you are looking for an exceptional chance to help a loving and deserving dog, a dog that will return far more than you can ever give. His forever family is out there and will find him soon!  Basil can’t wait to be their best buddy.

 PERSONALITY

Jack Russell Terriers are the biggest dogs you’ll ever meet in such a tiny package. They can run all day and keep coming back for more. They are sharply intelligent and absolutely nothing gets past them. There is no fooling a Jack Russell. They are spirited, fearless and sassy with minds of their own and aren’t above causing mischief to get a laugh. They are highly trainable and are famous for their high-jumping antics. When raised alongside children, Jack Russells make fine family dogs. They are exceptional athletes who excel in the competitive arena.

 ACTIVITY

Their size may make them appealing to apartment dwellers, but Jack Russells are not apartment dogs. You can think of them as large dogs trapped in small bodies. They would do well if they had lots of wide open space to run however an active family can full fill his needs and go everywhere with them. Fenced in yards would be great, Jack Russells love to chase squirrels, rabbits, bikes, and even cars. They should always be supervised when outdoors because these little guys love to dig and not only will the make quick work of a flower bed, but they will dig under fences to get out and seek new adventure. A sandbox with a cover would give him a place to dig and stop him from wanting to dig under a fence; watching him play in his sandbox is sheer entertainment.

Daily activities should include both walking and time to run in the yard. Jack Russells love, love, love to chase balls. They love it so much, in fact, that many owners believe their dogs are obsessed with playing ball. They will retrieve the ball as often as you are willing to throw it, and when you’re done, he’ll still want more.

Jack Russell Terriers are highly intelligent dogs and need as much mental stimulation as they do physical activity. These dogs excel in agility activities and there are entire competitions set up around Jack Russell Terriers that include sprinting, flyball, obstacle course and retrieving.
