Finn – Happy Tails!

You may remember this cute guy!  This is Finn.  He came to us this summer and was fostered in Houston, Texas.  Finn was adopted and is having the time of his life in his forever home!  Here’s what his mom had to say about him:

“He’s doing really well, I can tell he feels very comfortable in our house now.  Initially he was more quiet but now he’s gotten pretty vocal and is making all kinds of sounds at us if he wants pets or food.  He’s very sassy!  We are also investing in more childproofing latches and probably soon a dog proof trash can; at first he only got into some things (sock drawer) but now he gets into EVERYTHING.  Clever boy! He is my most stubborn dog ever, training is coming along very slowly but we are making slow and steady progress.  He is so sweet and loving, just the best boy.”

Finn loves to help his mom work during the day…you can see from the pics that he’s laying down on the job!  You can also see a pic of him pouting when he was denied access to his favorite thing…the trash can!  Finn enjoys the beach also.  Right after this photo was taken he dove in and caught a baby hammerhead!  Only a JRT!  Happy Tails Finn!  Try to stay out of trouble! 


Lucy – Happy Tails!

This fuzzy wuzzy is Lucy!  Her owner could no longer care for her, so she joined the Russell Rescue, Inc. family in June of this year.  Lucy was a popular girl!  No one can resist that fuzzy face!  She found a wonderful home and was adopted in July.  Lucy has settled in well and is loving life!!  Happy Tails Lucy! 


Happy Halloween from the Jack Pack!

The Jack Pack wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween!  From left to right in the first photo, we have Rosie (pink), Woody (that hair!), Indy 500 (red bow) and Moose.  Rosie, Woody and Moose were adopted from Russell Rescue, Inc.  These guys like to stay busy!  Rosie, Woody and Indy 500 are registered Pet Partners therapy dogs.  Moose is in training for his evaluation next year.  These JRT’s got a second chance because someone fostered them and then someone adopted them.  They hit the jackpot when they found their forever home!  

Mulligan Moose is the newest addition to the Jack Pack.  His mom doesn’t know his actual birthday (since he was rescued from a shelter), but she gave him National Mulligan Day as his birthday to celebrate not only him, but second chances.  His mom says that “life is full of chances and second chances do not come by so often.  However, if you are playing golf then you have more chances of getting a second chance of playing your stroke.  While National Mulligan Day is a celebration of the Mulligan, related more to the game of golf, it is a celebration of the second chances that people deserve (and animals too).”

We think it’s pretty awesome that all these guys got their second chance!  Consider fostering with Russell Rescue, Inc. and give a JRT a second chance at life.  We cover all the expenses and you provide the TLC.  Apply to foster here.  

Happy Halloween from the Jack Pack! 



Jacklyn – Happy Tails!

Jacklyn joined the Russell Rescue, Inc. family in June of this summer.  She came to us when her owner could no longer care for her.  Jacklyn was quickly adopted and is loving her forever home.  She absolutely loves squirrel duty from her favorite window.  And Amazon will never sneak up on her house!  Happy Tails Jacklyn! 


Shadow – Happy Tails!

You will probably remember this senior girl.  Her name is Shadow.  She came to Russell Rescue this summer when her owner passed away.  Shadow had been loved on and cared for her entire life.  Shadow was understandably confused and sad when she came to Russell Rescue.  But she is doing amazing in her forever home now!  Shadow found a great home recently and her mom shared some pics and updates on how she’s doing.  She is loved and spoiled and has settled in very well.  She even has a buddy to keep her company.  Happy Tails Shadow!   


Hutch (aka Monty) – Happy Tails Update!

Hutch (now known as Monty) – Happy Tails Update!  Monty loves the pool!  As Erica (his human Mom stated) he swims like a seal.  He is a great swimmer.  Everything is fun and games for Monty.  Monty jumps in the pool with the family.  He gets the ball or toy and swims over to Tula (his sister/best friend) and brings her the ball.  Tula does not like getting into the pool.  Monty then gets out and does it again or sits on the step.  He is very busy this summer.  His humans have had multiple visitors and he has loved the attention…from long walks to extra cuddles.  He cannot wait until his big human brother Neil gets home from work so they can play chase.  Tula and Monty have another game.  She drops the ball from the landing, he gets it and brings it up the stairs and goes back down and they start all over again!

Happy Tails Monty!    


Hutch – Happy Tails!

This handsome boy sporting the yellow life jacket is Hutch.  He is now called Monty.  Monty came to Russell Rescue in March of this year and found his home around May.  He hit the jackpot with his new family!  He has a best buddy/sister named Tula.  As you can see, they are having an awesome summer!  Happy Tails Monty!  You and Tula don’t get into too much trouble!  

Tex – Happy Tails!

Check out this amazing Happy Tails story written by Julie (loving Mom of Tex!)  We couldn’t be more thrilled for Tex!  He hit the jackpot!  Happy Tails Tex!

“It’s Official – we have a new Devlin!  Welcome to the family Tex!  We felt the Fourth of July was the perfect “Gotcha Day”.  Tex (13) arrived January 2, 2022, as a foster for Russell Rescue Inc..  He had severe dental disease.  He was unsure how to trust and love.  

Well, that’s all changed! 

Tex, fondly known as Mundo and Gumby, is now toothless with an appetite that rivals his senior brother Chip’s.  He shares a bed with his brother Bruno.  He and his sister Olive hang out.  He found his voice and joins in on the barking fests.  He displays frequent “Wilburisms”.  Most of all, he knows what love, security and trust mean. 

❤️ HE IS HOME ❤️

Happy Gotcha Day sweet Tex. We love you! (7/4/22) Thank you,  Russell Rescue for bringing him into our lives.

If you are unsure about adopting a senior, don’t be! They are amazing and love with their whole heart! ❤️”

Rosie – Happy Tails Update!

We got this update last week on little Miss Rosie! Her mom says this about her:
“Rosie is living her best life. She’s taking agility classes now. She’s amazing!”
Happy Tails Rosie! Have a fantastic summer!

Roscoe aka Moose – Happy Tails!

Roscoe was rescued from a shelter in Oklahoma recently.  He found a wonderful forever home with a previous adopter.  Here’s what his new mom has to say about him!  

“I have renamed Roscoe to Moose, his official title is “Second Chance Mulligan Moose”.  He is fitting in nicely with the pack, even had a meeting with the rat at barn hunt practice.  Moose is a busy boy and has started basic obedience classes.  Thanks for giving us a second chance, I have given him the birthday of October 17th, National Mulligan Day.”

Happy Tails Moose!
