About Grant/Jack

He is an amazing puppy and so very loyal to myself, just as I am to him. The love I have for him and he has for me is something that absolutely remarkable. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful boy.

  • Sex: Male
  • Age: 10 years, 3 mo. old
  • Weight: 12 lbs
  • Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
  • Tracking Chip: No
  • Neutered: No
  • House Trained: Yes
    He always goes to the door and lets us know when he needs to go outside. If o one is near the door he will come and find us and use his paw to tap us multiple times to let us know that he needs to go outside. He is also very quick to let us know when he is done with his business and ready to go back inside, especially when it is cold or rainy outside.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    We were brought together my sophomore year in high school, and there were never any children younger than 12 years old (my brother) in the house; so I'm not entirely sure how to answer that question. He has a good temperament. If he didn't feel comfortable around the child, I believe he would just ignore the younger person and walk to the other room or sit beside me.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    He has lived on a farm his whole life, so the only other dogs he really knows are the dogs that he grew up with, and they get along very well and love each other immensely.
  • Gets along with cats: No
    I don't know of any Jack Russell's that get along with cats.

Special Requirements

Sometimes he gets allergies in the springtime and needs the medication prednisone, I believe.

About Zena/Zebra

Zebra is the kindest dog that I have ever had the pleasure to know. She loves everyone. While she acts a bit ditzy, that is what make her unique and quite simply, her. She is sweet, loving, forgiving, rambunctious, obedient, loyal- any trait you want in a dog, or a human for that matter, Zena has that. She is remarkable and I am so lucky to have a dog as outstanding as her.

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 12 years, 8 mo. old
  • Weight: 25 lbs
  • Breed: Golden Retriever
  • Tracking Chip: No
  • Spayed: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
    She can actually open the door on her own when she needs to let herself out to go to the bathroom, as well as let herself back in.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    As with Grant, she grew up on the farm and wasn't around many children, however I was in 6th grade, so about 11 or 12 years old, when we brought her into the family as my little girl (which would mean my brother was 7 or 8 years old) and she was wonderful with us at those ages. I have no doubt that she would be wonderful with any other child if she came in contact with one.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    While just like Grant, Zena has grown up on the farm, she is very social and there have been times that she has snuck to our neighbors yards and has been playing with the other dogs, so I think it is safe to say that she is rather friendly with other dogs.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    Zebra will go out to the barn and snuggle with the cats. It doesn't matter if they are kittens, mama kitties, or full grown tomcats, she will make sure they all are near her, and oddly enough, they all comply. I believe that she thinks that she is the mother of the felines, and in a way, I think the cats believe it themselves.

Special Requirements

Zena is afraid of loud noises and storms and needs to be taken care of accordingly; see care instructions.
