Very Loving Foster Home Needed For 1 YR For Sweet Jack Russell Mix in Sacramento – Supplies, Stipend Offered
Rexie is a sweet and spunky 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, healthy and crate trained. Rexie is good with cats, and also with older children. He is not always great with other dogs, so he would be best suited for a home without other dogs. He has been known to get along with some dogs, but not all dogs.
Rexie’s owner loves him so much. She has to be away from him for a year, until June 2018, and is looking for a very loving home where he will be cherished and well cared for during the next year. All supplies will be included, and the owner is willing to offer the foster home a monthly gratuity in thanks for their efforts in caring for him.
Rexie is a rescue dog. He has a few quirks, but they just make him all the more special. He is a loving, loyal, funny and smart companion who always makes life enjoyable. Rexie is housetrained, so long as he has a doggie door with access to a securely fenced back yard. He needs to be crated at night, which is his normal routine.
Like most terriers, Rexie can be somewhat vocal at times, but he has a bark collar which helps keep him quiet. Rexie is used to spending some time alone while his owner is at work, and she has a very good routine in place for him which includes a doggie door, pen and dog house.
Rexie’s owner is dearly hoping to find a foster home where he will be treated like family. He is a dear little dog and she wants to ensure he is well cared for, happy and healthy in her absence. She would like to keep in touch with the foster family, and will provide all supplies he will need, and also a monthly stipend for your efforts in caring for him.
Please offer this sweet little guy the loving foster home he needs and deserves today. He can’t wait to meet you!

Rexie’s Current Home
I live in a small house with a small backyard. I have a dog door with a pen around it where Rexie stays while I am gone. This is the best arrangement for him since he is not housebroken — he will go outside to go to the bathroom if has a door. He has a small doghouse outside. He sleeps in a crate at night. He is used to being alone during the day when I work. I got Rexie when my daughter was 10 and he was a good companion for her.
Rexie’s favorite toys, foods, activities?
Walking, Greenies, chew toys with food in the center
Cute Rexie Story:
He pulled my daughter on her skateboard when she was 10 and 11.
Why Foster Care Needed?
This is a temporary one year placement. I am retiring and relocating to a place where I can’t have dogs. I will be able to take Rexie back in June 2017.
Looking for loving people who understand dogs and treat them like family.
A crate, blankets/pillows, supply of chew toys. doghouse for outside, bark collar. I am open to discussing a small monthly stipend.
