This rough and ready character is a fully-grown Jack Russell terrier, believed to be about two years old.

He weighs approximately 12 pounds and is just the right size for lap-sitting.

He can also run and play when the occasion calls for it.

He will make a wonderful addition to any family and can be rescued and adopted at Newton County Animal Shelter.
