Please complete our application at: http://www.russellrescuetn.com/application-for-adoption/ “I’m a naturally playful, curious and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.” Leon is an absolute delight to be around! He is a little dynamo who is so active and loves to be on the go! Leon is six years old and is a great choice if you are looking for a small dog (11 lbs). He adores going for long walks and will lick your hand when you leash him up! Leon is housebroken, too.Leon is such fun to watch in the play yard, where he races around and has such a good time! We think this little guy is poetry in motion! Leon also enjoys being held and petted and carried around. Leon has some separation anxiety and the best situation for him would be where someone is home most of the time. Leon does well with other dogs, but does need a home without cats. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

LOVES to play for days and days! Noodle is a 5 year old female Jack Russell Mix! A ball of energy; she is 28lbs, spayed, UTD, potty and crate trained, and knows basic commands. Noodle is a total lap dog and you'll never lack for kisses! She is great with adults and children alike, however she would do better as an only dog. Definitely no kitties or small creatures as the high prey drive is strong in this one! Please complete our application at: http://www.russellrescuetn.com/application-for-adoption/ 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Tiny 6 lb JRT who needs a secure fence. Here is what her current family says about her: We adopted our sweet Jack Russell mix (named Locket) in December from a high kill shelter. She is about 2 years old and has the BEST temperament is perfect with our other dog and a dream with our 3 small children. The issue is, we can not contain her- she gets out of our fence in every way - over, under. we have tried adding height, barricading, wrapping additional fencing around the existing fencing. We at first tried kennel training but she apparently has had some sort of high anxiety issue with kennels or small spaces. We cannot keep her safely in our yard we when are away from the home. (When we are home she is in the house with us and is very much part of the family) but both adults work so day time she is outside. She is a chewer! She is a beautiful sweet and loving dog.

  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie

  • Prefers home without dogsPrefers home without small kidsPrefers home without cats
Millie's Story: Millie is a great little (about 10 pound) Yorkie probably about 7 years old full of spunk and love. We rescued Millie back in October 2013 from a family who was very cruel to her, especially by the children in the family. With that being said Millie does have a special kind of personality. She is sweet and loves to be loved on, she is a dog that will lay by you on the couch or sit in your lap all day if you let her. She likes to ride in the car and she likes being outside if you are with her otherwise she just wants to go out do her business and come back in. Millie is a great little girl however because of her troubled past she does have issues. She has a stubborn streak and if she doesn't want to do something she can be a little monster. She at times has a mind of her own and if she doesn't want to give you what she may have collected and claimed as her's (usually socks or shoes) or doesn't want to be moved when she is comfy she will growl and snap. Millie is not for someone who is not a TRUE ANIMAL LOVER THROUGH AND THROUGH!!! Millie needs to be with a couple or individual who does not have children. She has lots of love to give and would make a great addition to someone's life but she is special and needs a calm and loving home where she is the only fur-baby in the family. The only reason I am considering finding her a new family is because we have an 18 month old granddaughter (Lily) and when she comes over we have to keep Millie locked up because I am afraid she will bite her. Lily does not understand if she drops a toy or something and Millie gets it she can't just reach for it. My husband and I understand Millie's warning signs but a baby does not and as much as I love Millie I can't have her bite my granddaughter. Potential Millie adopters must have a fenced yard, no other pets and no small children. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Sweet Jack is your typical Jack Russell. He has all the good and not so good traits of the breed. He does great with all his four legged doggie buddies, but would not trust him with other types such as cats. Crate and house trained but would be best out 24-7 to enjoy his family He should be with adults or supervised with children. His patience is short when his space is invaded and does like to be smothered with attention.

Sweet Madison needs a home. She is 12 years old, and we all know that jacks live long lives, with the senior years being the sweetest! She has a great personality, protective, and a cuddler. She would do great with a retired family that is looking for a low maintenance dog. She does her own thing, sleeps a lot and just wants to cuddle. She is an inside dog. She likes to be where she can see you but doesn't need to be right next to you. She likes to be outside when you are, or to relax in the sun.

***update*** Last week we posted about Lad as we kicked off a fundraiser to pay for his medical care. We are extremely excited to get to post some new photos showing his progress! 'One vet said he should be put to sleep, that his chances were slim and would be a long hard recovery. Dr. Anderson said let's give him a chance! ......Lad has come from completely paralyzed from the neck down to these pictures today! Standing and taking some wobbly steps!' Thank you to those that have donated. Lad is ready for foster or adoption. We were asked to help sweet Lad after his family no longer felt like he was needed in their lives. He was not mobile and could not even keep himself upright. After his vet exam it was discovered that his vertebra is bone on bone. Under our vet's care and advice, we attempted to improve his quality of life. He is currently undergoing physical and drug therapy to see if we can improve his quality of life. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Sally is a 5 year old girl that is a bundle of sunshine! She's so happy to be out of the shelter, and ready to shower her new owner with tons of love and kisses. Sally has wonderful house manners, and has gotten along with all of the other dogs she's met, and she has absolutely no interest in pets of the feline persuasion. She's met two since being sprung from puppy prison, and has ignored them both completely (much to the chagrin of Watson the kitten who's used to taunting the household dogs). Miss Sally really, really needs a foster home since she thrives on human attention and love. If you would like to share your home with this happy girl, you can fill out our foster form at our web page, russellrescuetn.com or contact us at russellrescuetn@gmail.com. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Hello! I am a Jack Russell Terrier-Beagle mixed breed. I was born in 2006 and, although that was a long time ago, I do remember growing up on a farm as a young pup. For some reason, my family then relocated to the Williamson County Animal Shelter. First things first…I LOVE playing with my tennis ball! If I had the chance, I would watch and play with the squirrels, bunny rabbits, and chipmunks all day long…but have I mentioned that I really love my tennis ball?! Next to the ball, a good belly rub completely makes my day! I have lived in both Tennessee and Florida—I enjoy going for car rides, and I have even been on many boat rides with my family in Georgia. I’ve stayed at the beach twice—the waves are so fun! I love giving kisses, nudging in close with friendly people, laying in the sunshine (I really love this!), and sleeping in the bed—but I’m also very comfortable sleeping in my own doggie bed in my kennel. Bath time is okay, but it’s always best at the end when I get pampered with the towels…and of course, the yummy treats for being good afterward! I love to eat my food (and don’t like anyone else to eat it!), and I stay around 20 lbs. I can be pretty nervous and anxious, and the older I get this seems to increase. But, I always say that the best medicine for this is lots of freedom, lots of love, and a very stress-free and relaxed atmosphere. I love really well and enjoy pleasing others…but I also love the attention, and give as much love in return as given to me! Love, Kali 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Lupin was found on the street and a family graciously stepped up to care for him over the summer. Unfortunately they are not in a position to offer Lupin a forever home and have reached.out to us for help. Notes from the family that found Lupin: 'He came to us very bony with no hair on his back paws. The husband of my oldest daughter's biology teacher saw him and two litter mates wandering the streets for a couple of days. He took them home and the girls went quickly to homes. No one wanted Lupin because he looked so puny. They could not keep him, so we agreed to take him in to try to get him healthy. He gobbled the food down so fast at first, he would throw up. He has now learned that he will be fed daily and will stop eating when he is full. He has learned to sit, lay down, roll over, and shake hands. My girls have been working on teaching him to pray, but he looks more like he is doing a yoga pose than praying. He prefers not to be in a crate, but he handles it well when we leave or at night. His crate is next to the schnauzers' crate which helps. He is in the puppy chewing stage. He has only destroyed one shoe and a pillow. He cannot have any pillow, blanket, or towel in the crate because he tries to ingest them. He gets along well with our cat as well. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Reno is an 11 year old female. She was abandoned at her vet by her owner about a month ago. The vet staff has taken her in and cared for her but no dog needs to live full time in a vet clinic. We have agreed to help her find a new and improved family! Reno is current on vaccines and just had her spay done so she has just a little recovery time and then she will be good to go! Reno is described as a typical Jack, she loves to chase things that run. As you can see she is petite in size and is said to be a sweet dog. She does have a bit of a quirk: She likes to crate herself and walk in. If you try to place her in the crate apparently she can be crate aggressive. Supposedly if you say 'kennel' she will go in on her own. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

He will need someone with patience because he takes a little while to warm up to strangers especially men. We are thinking small children would not be a good fit for this boy because he is fearful of sudden moves and loud noises. However he is good with other doggies so a multiple dog home would not be an issue. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Very sweet, good with other dogs, cats and kids. She is one in a million. Abby has medical needs. She had heart worms which have been treated. The Heartworms caused her to have a heart mumor and she is on medication for congestive heart failure. Abby is feeling fine and has no symptoms at this time. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Looking for a fun, playful and very loving new friend? Then Graham would be perfect! He’s such a sweet, good hearted and smart boy. He’s still a bit of a puppy at only 2 years old, fully vetted and in excellent health. He loves to play and would be great for an active person, couple or family. He loves everyone – adults, children and all kinds of dogs. At approximately 55 pounds, he might be a little big for playing with cats and probably would be best with children who are bigger than he is (probably at least 8 years old). Graham’s breed is a little hard to identify – some say English Bulldog mix, others say Boston Terrier/Lab mix. He’s currently in a foster home with a fenced in yard, doggy door, and several doggy friends. He’s living in Nashville, TN and you can find out more about this precious darling by calling Melissa at 615 298 5429. He is such an amazing boy who will be a blessing to whoever adopts him! 10/21/17 6:39 PM

Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix and weighs about nine pounds. He is 1 1/2 years old and was found abandoned and never claimed. He is great on a leash and loves to run and play in the shelter yard. He has such fun with the toys and especially enjoys the tennis balls. He likes to be petted and cuddled and carried around and is such a friendly, good-natured little dog. He looks so adorable curled up on his bed in his kennel. He would do best in a home without young children- he is protective of his food and treats. He would do great in a quiet home where he can be king of the castle. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

This sweet, affectionate boy is perfect in almost every way. He is crate-trained, walks great on a leash, and gets along well with other dogs. He needs a wonderful forever home with a family who doesn’t mind him staying at their feet or giving lots of doggie kisses. Rock loves to curl up under a soft blanket when he naps. We’re sure he must bark but we’ve not heard him. Rock has been with RR for a while now and just gets overlooked because he’s so quiet and unassuming. It takes a little extra time for Rock to become comfortable around men. He is a great companion and ready for his new best friend. 10/21/17 6:39 PM

My name is Smiley and I’m a darling male Jack Russell mix.. I came from a criminal abuse case so I’m a little timid and shy. However, I'm a very gentle, happy little boy with a fabulous smile. I’ll feel safer in a calm, quiet home. I'm around five years old, weigh around 25 pounds and will be a loving companion to someone. I have an adorable under bite which is why I guess the shelter where I came from named me Smiley. I also have a “second sense” to know when my foster mom wakes up in the morning and I run to greet her with a warm smile and pats on her arm. I can prance like a little horse and wave my paws in the air while continuing to beamingly smile.
