Pet of the Week

Dexter, a good-natured Jack Russell terrier mix, arrived in the shelter when his owner died. At 9 years old, he must compete for attention with younger dogs. Still, he dreams of a new home, and his sturdy body has many years left. His breed is generally smart, inquisitive and happiest with a "job." In younger Jack Russells, these qualities can be quite a handful, but with Dexter, you'll find a more mature approach to life. Yes, he enjoys his walks and his food, but he is also content to hang out quietly. Dexter, who is not a barker and is courteous with other dogs, can also be independent in a positive way — he doesn't crave constant activity and affection. He is neutered and healthy, aside from a medicinally treatable heart condition. Dexter's adoption fees are discounted 25% all week when you mention this announcement.
