I live in town and have a small lot. I had a 14yr old Jack Russel and we loved each other to death sadly I had to put him to sleep. I've had 4 back surgeries and can't walk far or fast. I would like to get another jack russel. But not sure I can take care of another the way a Jack Russel puppy should be treated. What do you suggest?

Getting a Jack Russell NEW
by: Frank

I am so sorry to hear about losing your Jack. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet. Been in your shoes and it's wretched.
Because of your surgeries I think getting a Jack puppy might be hard on your back. Have you thought about getting a middle aged Jack from a shelter? A middle aged Jack may be a bit calmer, especially if you found a Jack mix. If you did get another dog, would you have someone who can help you walk or could you hire a dog walker or an enterprising teen to do longer walks?
