There's a bit of a dog emergency today. Ray's foster mother, Amber, in Columbia, contacted me yesterday to ask if I would post a blog that might be read by dog lovers in S.C. For the past few months she has been fostering a Jack Russell Terrier (ironically named Jack), that she absolutely looovvves. Unfortunately, Amber has three other dogs, two that live with her permanently and a third, Josie, that had been residing with Amber's ex husband while he hunted with the dog. Josie is being retired and has returned home to be with Amber permanently. Even more unfortunately, Jack has taken a severe dislike to the returning hunter. The rescue is full of dogs and can't take Jack back right now but is planning on sending him to Martha's Vineyard along with several other dogs in an attempt to find him a home. Amber has made temporary arrangements for her dog while she is desperately trying to find a foster home or a permanent home for Jack in Columbia. She would love to keep him but as she told me "Jean, I just can't have four dogs," especially since she can't trust two of them home alone together.
SO, if anyone in Columbia can take a Jack Russell Terrier that Amber says is cute as a button, full of personality, and loving as heck, (and, as she told me "a fine example of the breed") let me know. We have a week to find Jack a home.
Here are some photos of Jack and Amber's email address for anyone thats wants more information. I also have her phone number, so if you want to call her, just leave a comment for me and I can send it to you. firstname.lastname@example.org
