ADOPTION PENDING – Please say hello to Peaches.  A perfect little Peach is just what this girl is! She is a female Jack Russell/Parson Terrier mix, about 2 years old weighing in at 15 pounds. This girl is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations.

Peaches came from a very sad situation, the woman who had Peaches had been in jail and moved out of town.  She was living in her crate all day and night now.  The woman’s son was living in the house with her, but he works all day.  Sadly, since she is not in there with him, he forgets to feed her.  The woman’s daughter was going by to let her out to potty, but she hasn’t been available for a few days.

When Peaches was rescued by her southern foster she was very dirty and her nails were very long.  Another terrible case of a dog being neglected.  Brighter days are ahead for our southern PEACH her and her southern mom just loves little Peaches!  She played with her other dogs and with her grandchildren.  She took correction well and she never caused any problems.

On her first day in her northern foster care Peaches was very shy and nervous. Well, that has all changed now! Peaches is very friendly and loves to be with people and other dogs. Peaches is a very active little girl and always on the go. She loves her toys and blanket. Peaches foster Mom says there is never a tough day with Peaches, because she is so sweet and aims to please. Peaches loves her crate and eats and sleeps in it. She will often go in by herself when she needs a little nap from playing with her other doggie friends. Peaches is great in the car, and is crated when in the vehicle for her safety. This little girl is great on leash, and loves to walk and explore. Peaches does very well with house training as long as she is on a schedule. Her behavior with cats is unknown.

The ideal home for Peaches would be a younger active family. She has a very high activity level and we feel this would be too much for an elderly couple. Peaches loves to play with other dogs big and small, and would love one or many canine companions in her new home. Jack Russell’s/Parson Terriers are extremely intelligent and enjoy learning new things. Peaches is very sweet by nature and aims to please, this should make training very enjoyable. She is not recommended for a home with cats, as terriers were bred to chase rodents, and a cat may be a little too enticing for little Ms. Peaches.  Her foster mom Zara says “Peaches is an angel and anyone would be lucky to have her in their life” If you are looking for a little peace of heaven please fill out an adoption application for this little girl.


 Pet Compatibility

Daily activities should include both walking and time to run in the yard. Parsons love to chase balls more than anything else. Playing with another dog will help satisfy some of that energy. They will retrieve the ball as often as you are willing to throw it, and when you’re done, he’ll still want more.


Stable Parson’s are friendly and generally kind to children. They are very loving toward their family’s children, but other children should be properly introduced. They should be supervised with children and children should be taught not to tease or hit the dog.


Parson’s are clean animals that don’t like to soil their space. During the housebreaking phase, it is recommended to feed your dog on a regular schedule. The biggest problem is once a dog has had one accident in the house, there is a urine smell the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If you keep the house clean and pour some urine outside where you want him to go and then praise him when he marks there you will find house-breaking goes very easily.


Full of zest and life, Parson Russell Terriers are athletic, friendly and bursting with energy. Not only are they perky and outgoing, Parson Russell Terriers make excellent members of the family: loyal, loving and fun. is a cheerful, merry, devoted, and loving dog. Spirited and obedient, yet absolutely fearless. Careful and amusing, he enjoys games and playing with toys.


Parson Russell Terriers are big dogs trapped in a tiny package. They can run all day, all night and keep coming back for more. There is no fooling a Parson Russell, as he is highly intelligent, quick witted and an excellent problem solver. They are spirited terriers, fearless and sassy with minds of their own and aren’t above causing mischief to get a laugh. Parsons are highly trainable and are famous for their high-jumping antics.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
