Long-haired Jack & Short-haired Jade! (Oldies Club, fostered Berkshire)

Jack on the left and Jade on the right

Jack and Jade are the cutest Jack Russell Terriers who came into the Oldies Club rescue due to their owner’s ill health. They are in a foster home in Bracknell, Berkshire, waiting for someone to offer them a permanent home.

Jack is the long-haired darling, aged 10, and Jade is the short-haired beauty, aged 9. It goes without saying that they are a devoted pair and we will only rehome them together.

Doing well in foster care: Jack and Jade have been really good from Day 1. They were just slightly worried at first but were easily reassured. By Week 5, they knew they were ‘home’.

Can be left occasionally: It took a week or two for them to settle into being left, but now they are OK to be left for up to 4 hours with no problem. That being said, they would be happier in a home where someone is at home most of the time.

Good with dogs: There is a resident dog at their foster home and they have been good with him. They have also been been lovely with any other dog they have met out and about.

Likely to chase cats: They have not been specifically cat tested, but being typical terriers they do like to chase anything that runs, though they have never been a real problem with this. As they have no experience of living with cats, we’ll be looking for a cat-free home for them.

Like a quiet life: These two sweethearts are not used to living with children and they enjoy a quiet life. Jade can be quite anxious when things get noisy, so we are looking for a home for them without children, though calm, visiting teenage children should be fine.

Enjoy walks on lead: They are very good dogs on the lead and are always sociable. Their foster carer hasn’t tried them off lead as they are very interested in chasing squirrels etc. They have two walks per day of about 30 minutes each, but they can manage being out for a bit longer at a gentle, slow pace.

Very good in the car: They are excellent in their foster carer’s hatchback car and are happy to sit or lie down. They have done journeys of up to 20 minutes so far and have travelled perfectly.

Jack and Jade’s favourite pastimes: Sitting with you being fussed, and following you wherever you go. They are easy to have.

Dislikes: Jade will worry if you drop anything noisy, or move too fast towards her, but she is easily reassured.

Jack & Jade’s ideal home: A quiet, adult-only home with people who are retired or work from home.

Health notes: They are both neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have been wormed and flea treated. Jack has a heart murmur and is on daily medication (Cardisure). Their foster carer tries to not let them get too excited, just to be on the safe side bearing in mind Jack’s condition, but they can still have fun and Jack has never seemed to have ill-effects from his condition.

More from their foster carer:Adorable Jack and Jade are easy to look after and fall in love with. They are sweet natured and loving. A gorgeous bonded pair, they deserve a loving home that will understand they are a little worried when they first join you but once they are confident in you they will steal your heart and you will see their gorgeous, sometimes cheeky, characters. A great addition to the right home.

If you would like to offer Jack & Jade a permanent home, please read our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Email: rehome@oldies.org.uk
Telephone: 0844 586 8656

They can be rehomed anywhere on the UK mainland – the closer to their foster home the better though, subject to a satisfactory home visit. Note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to collect them.

If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
