Featured Rescue - Boo the Jack Russell Terrier

Today I've chosen a Jack Russell Terrier (JRT) to be featured for the rescue spotlight. JRTs are often found in rescue - I'd say it's likely because of the high energy requirements of the breed, though I'm not really sure. I know that most we see come through rescue are in dire need for obedience training but that doesn't really offer much insight.

Why is it that so many people with small dogs think they're less work than big dogs? I have found that it's usually the opposite (though there are always exceptions to every rule!) - big dogs are usually less work than small ones.

Boo is the JRT of the day. They don't have much info yet about him, though he looks young from his pictures. Maybe 2 years? Hard to say. Anyway, he's pretty cute looking. He was found in the snow - they figure the result of a dumping, though it doesn't say why they stated that.

There are currently 2,033 JRTs available on Petfinder.
