About Dante

Adoption Fee: 0
Jack Russell
Age: Senior
Sex: Male

Dante, which in Latin means 'everlasting,' will be the loyal dog you've been searching forČ'Ř|because his love for you, in turn, will be just that, everlasting. This handsome nine-year-old, 19 lb. Jack Russel Terrier came to Connecticut from Puerto Rico after his owner tragically passed away. He is currently staying with a family friend as he awaits his new furever home and is in immediate need of a foster or adopter. Like most Jack Russell Terriers, this guy loves to explore and play. Even at nine years old, he enjoys a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, romp in the yard, or drive through town. Dante is a big fan of toys and will proudly stroll around with one in his mouth. As demonstrated with his past owner, he's devoted to his person and enjoys being next to you. Listening to calming music is his favorite as he soaks in all the cuddles and pets you have to offer. With a curious, affectionate, and playful personality, Dante will make a wonderful companion. Losing his best friend was very traumatic for Dante so he needs someone who is going to be patient with him as he builds trust with you. While in Puerto Rico, he lived a very sheltered life. He was rarely let outdoors so he is only just learning housetraining and leash walking skills now but is doing very well. His ideal home would be one with adults only. Finding an adopter that understands decompression, has a fenced yard, and can put in the time to dedicate to training Dante would be very beneficial. JRT breed experience is also highly preferred. Let's make his next chapter in life his best one yet! Dante is vaccinated, heartworm negative, and neutered. His adoption fee has also been WAIVED.
