Jack Russell TerrierAdopted or Rescued?
YesPet personality / Story of adoption / Why is your pet special?
Here is a picture of Maggie on the porch swing waiting for daddy to come home from work. Some say the the Russell Terrier looks like a plush toy come to life.
The traits of the Jack Russell according to the American Kennel Association are: upbeat, lively, inquisitive, curious, and friendly. They describe the breed as a cheerful and confident dog developed in England for use in foxhunts.
These are all great descriptors of our Maggie who we adopted 11 years ago. She is a gem, a loving member of our fur family, and we cannot imagine our home without her.
