Penny- snuggly, affectionate and loves cats.

Jack Russell Terrier
Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Woodbury, NJ

  • Young
  • Medium
  • Female

Shy, Sweet, and submissive describes Penny. She was given up by her family to a crowded shelter with her sister. WJVA rescued her a couple days later, she was petrified there.
Penny is about a year old. She is very shy at first, but warms up to who ever is caring for her. She gives kisses and is very snuggly. We think she may be part Jack Russel, but she will be about 30-35 lb when full grown.
Even though Penny lived with another dog, we feel she would do best as the only dog because she doesn't like to share her food and toys with her dog siblings. She is more comfortable with her people than dogs. But she is better with bigger male dogs than small ones. She is very smart and with a good introduction, and time she can learn to live with a dog. She loves to play with toys, is crate trained. She is being fostered with cats, and loves to play with them.
