Missy is back and ready for adoption. She had been adopted out, but was returned only a week later after she didn’t get along with a friends dog. Prior to her adoption it seemed as though she had allergies starting, and we finally have them under control (knock on wood)! Poor Missy has been through a lot and really needs to find a permanent, loving home.
 >Missy {Jack Russell Terrier}   ADOPTED
Missy is 6 years old and has been with Windy City for seven months! Isn’t that crazy? She is a fantastic dog and no one is sure why she hasn’t been snatched up yet. She is great in the house- often found curled up under the blanket on the couch, or napping in sun patch. She is not demanding at all and is content to lay at your feet while you read, work, or watch TV. At the word “walk” she is up and ready though- she will walk for as long as you will! She is pretty good on leash and does her own Happy Dance at the sight of it. She loves to run in the coulees aswell, and will chase a ball for as long as you will throw it.
The only thing Missy loves more than a walk is a ball. She is ball crazy and would love nothing more than to carry one around all day. She likes to lie with it, and will actually curl up with it. It is very cute. She can catch it just about anyway you can throw it, and it is the quickest way to tire her out. She also likes to run beside the bike- she knows to stay away from the tires, and doesn’t pull at all. She like to swim, and would make a great camping/hiking partner.
As I type this I realise that it sounds like Missy needs a ton of exercise- this isn’t so!!! She is actually quite lazy, and is happy with her two walks a day. Often I am too busy for that even so we settle for a quick game of fetch after work. Although Jack Russells are well known for their hyperness Missy is definitely not that!

Missy loves all people and is very friendly. She is outgoing and happy. Dogs on the other hand are a different story. She is not comfortable around them, and will react badly on leash. We have been working very hard at this and she is now able to walk past a dog as long as you have her attention. This will continue to be a work in a progress. It is highly reccomended that Missy’s adoptive family take Obedience classes right away. Missy is very obedient otherwise and can sit, down, stay, and comes when called. She knows what leave it means, and will run to her kennel on command. She is a smart girl this one!
Missy would do best as a single pet. She has learned self restraint around cats, but is not 100% trustworthy with them. She also has lived with dogs (is currently living with four others!) but really needs to be managed in that situation. She would be much happier as an only child. icon smile >Missy {Jack Russell Terrier}   ADOPTED All she really needs though is a place to call home. She has been through a lot of changes in the past 7 months and is really in need of some stability. If you are interested in meeting this great girl please contact us!

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.).  If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation.  Thank you.
