Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier [Mix]

Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)

Date of Birth: 11/12/2009

Small • Baby • Male • Dog


DOB 11/12/09


This is Joplin, and he is one of the "Jazz Septet" puppies. His mom was a 15 - 20 lb terrier mix (not sure about the dad). Mom dog "Ella" had 7 puppies: 5 male and 2 female. Five of the puppies have no or stubby tails and 2 have long tails. They are all very cute! The puppies will need to be at least 9 weeks old before adoption and will need to be eating solid food. Please be patient with us if there is a delay in their eventual placement as we want to ensure they are healthy and ready. Also, please note, that puppies not sterilized prior to adoption *must be* sterilized for the adoption to be finalized. We will provide you with a sterilzation coupon and will follow up on the procedure.


**** The puppies will attend their first adoption event on 1/16/10. If you are intersted in one of our Jazz Septet Pups, either send in your application before attending the adoption event or fill it in and bring it with you. We expect a lot of applications on the pups ******


About Joplin:

Joplin is a happy little guy whose tail is always wagging-he prances, hops and high fives while playing and loves to fetch-no stick or toy is too big for Joplin to try and fetch. He will dance to be picked up and give you lots of sweet kisses. Joplin is always ready for fun and his joy is contagious.



Joplin is in a foster home and is not at the shelter. To find out more about Joplin including where you can meet him, contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
