Your Pet's Breed
Jack Russell

How and when did you get your pet?
I got Shinook from a coworker where I'm a dog groomer at a veterinary animal hospital.

What does your pet like to do for fun?
Shinook loves to swim, play fetch, hunt rodents, go fishing in the boat with us, he walks along when I'm horse back riding, and play with his human daddy.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
He is having his 12 th birthday Sept 25th 2016. I would like to win him a prize. He goes to work with me everyday and is a great protector. He is an amazing dog and a part of our family in every way.

Duke is a seven year old Jack Russell. There was an ad in the paper, and my Mom and I went to look at the puppies. The lady said that Duke had not been sold, and she was asking less for him because he did not look as good as the other puppies.

Sadie has been one of my best friends since I was 11 years old. She is a specialist at scaring away monsters, and waking me from bad dreams. Though she has never had any pups, she is a full blown momma. She loves children and will nag you if there are any crying.

I lost my Hayley Girl 11/30/2010, and I'm still missing her! She had been fine at Thanksgiving and five days later, I lost her. We had been for a long walk just the day before, which she so loved, and had missed, since my Mother has been so sick.

Sproetjies is a 1 year old Jack Russell. I bought Sproetjies from a pet store in November 2011. I often go to pet shops to cuddle the small cats and dogs, and when I saw those two big eyes, I just couldn't resist. Sproetjies likes sneaking into the house. Whenever you are looking for her, you can just go and look ~ you'll probably find her curled up on my bed. She also likes chasing birds, eating plants, and running after bugs. She is a very busy dog and has enough energy for three dogs! Sproetjies likes to be the center of attention. She does not like it one bit if one shows affection to the other dogs.

Buddy is one year old. He is a Jack Russell Terrier. We got Buddy as a puppy after we saw an ad in the paper for Jack Russell puppies. Our daughter has been wanting one since she was 2, so we called and the lady had 1 puppy left.

Sproetjies is a 5 month old Jack Russell. I bought Sproetjies at our local pet shop. I like going to the pet shop to cuddle some of the puppies and kittens, but when I saw her face, I immediately knew that she had won me over.

Buster is a three year old Jack Russell Terrier. He was being abused, and ran away from his owner. He was very skinny, and cowered a lot. He also had a rope tied very tight around his neck when I found him. I took him in, fed and loved him. He has been with me ever since.

He loves to chase squirrels. Thank God, he doesn't catch them. He's a real talker and runs like a gazelle. I have a very large fenced yard, so no chains, leashes or collars. I am very blessed, finding him and all my others.

Dicey came from the preacher's house, where a litter of puppies were born next door. My son named her Dicey because she had 3 dice shaped markings on her when she was born. She has been a faithful pet over the years. I can't think of not having her.
