    We Have A Jack Russell And A Mutt Of Some Kind

    We love our rescued dogs. I think this is the best way to find a new furry friend. Many puppies from stores can come from "puppy mills" which have terrible conditions and can result in inbred dogs. Rescued dogs will always rescue you right back ;)
