This section is for people looking to rehome their dog(s). All arrangements are made between the two parties and Jack Russell Rescue is not involved and gives no guarantees regarding these dog(s).
Pocket is a 5yo male Jack Russell terrier. His birth date is the 3rd of Feb 2012, so he’ll be 6 soon.
We got him from a breeder in Texas, QLD. He is microchipped and desexed and has his vaccinations up to date. He weighs 8.5kg.
When Pocket was young he was an escape artist, and when he was 9months old he was hit by a car. He fractured his R) hip joint which was fixed with a pin and plate. He has decreased range of movement at the joint and early onset arthritis because of the injury. We have pain relief that we give him occasionally when he looks sore, but usually it doesn’t hold him back too much.
Pocket is very social and loves going to the dog park. After his accident we did obedience training with him which he really enjoys. He is great at agility games like jumping through hoops and over bars. His loose lead walking needs a lot of work.
Although we have to surrender Pocket because he has been snapping at our young toddler, I think he would be a great dog for a family with older kids and families with another dog.
We love him very much and it’s with great sadness that we have to make this decision. We have had animal behavioural specialists advise us and have tried increasing his pain meds to try and fix the issue with the toddler but to no avail.
