Anger management

I had to share this email chain; I am just floored at the screaming response I received. Not sure why I am because well I get stuff similar to this all the time but just thought I would share....

Subj: JRT female under 6 months

Hello. I realize that you are a rescue and your add said you have mostly older JRTs i am looking for a small female JRT or JRT mix that is younger than 6mths old. i would like her to not be fixed if at all possible. if you have any young puppies like this please let me know or if you know anyone that may have female JRT's (orJRT mixes with Rat terriers or Chi's) please let me know. i am unable to keep any pet over 25lbs full grown in accordance with my condo association rules so i am looking for a playmate for my 2 year old JRT. Please let me know i am looking to adopt a puppy in the near future. thank you

Why do you want a dog that isn't fixed?

i do not think that a female should be fixed until after they have their first heat, people try to fix their dogs too soon, i feel that it can really effect the temperment and demenor of the pet. It is just a personal preference. the JRT i have will be 2 in october and i plan to have my JRT fixed at age 2. If you know anyone that has small female JRTs i am very interested. thanks!

Hi Devin -

Did you know that studies show that spaying a female early is actually much easier on them and they have less risk of developing mammary cancer (see attached pictures) It is actually considered "old school" way of thinking that having a dog go into heat is a good / healthy idea.

Anyone who is a legitimate rescue adopts and any legitimate breeder will ALWAYS fix their dogs prior to them being adopted or require a contract to be signed stating you will have the dog fixed by 6 months of age.

You are putting your dog at SERIOUS risk by not having her fixed.

Also, as a side note you NEVER want to put a female terrier with another female dog. Female terriers are very dominate and you will live the rest of your life splitting up fights. TRUST ME ON THIS! Been there, lived with it. It is not fun.

I am sorry but I am not able to find you a puppy that is not fixed. ALL and I mean ALL dogs that leave my care are fixed before they go to their new homes. I also do not allow someone to adopt from me who has a pet that is not fixed.

I urge you to do some research on spaying your female. The longer you wait the more at risk your pet.


Her response:

Well to bad you are wrong, i guess i dont want to adopt from someone who tries to set rules. once a dog is sold it is then the other persons property and anyone who make you sign a contract has alterior motives. I know what i am looking for and if you cant help me someone will!!!!!! I hate people who scream they are looking for good homes for animals and then try to controll the situation after the animal is no longer ANY OF THEIR CONCERN. By the way there is nothing wrong with not fixing an animal, and your full of shit my parents have two female jack russell terriers and i lived with them for over a year while having my JRT as well. Nice try but i would not adopt from you after seeing the type of person you are anyway. Have fun trying to find homes for these JRTs with that attitude. Poor animals i feel sorry that they are under your care!!!!

No need to respond. you have already been blocked and reported!


All I have to say is WOW! Anger issues or maybe a little upset that someone called you out on your bull shit?? I love the line "you have already been blocked and reported"
Reported to who the email police? Yea, ok? Crazy much?

It is sad how many people refuse to be educated. Any rescue person out there so that you know Devin is a 27 year old female in Campbell Ohio. I have her phone number and address if you would like to contact me for that information.

I found it sadly amusing how her grammar and spelling completely disintegrated once she knew you would not help her find an intact puppy. A colleague of mine at work asked me to let her know if I came across any intact female Min. Schnauzers as she wanted to breed her male. I told her I wouldn't. She thought I meant I wouldn't adopt one to her - "Oh, no, just let me know." I didn't pursue any more but have no intention of passing on any intact female; and this colleague cares very much for her dogs :(. Back yard breeding is still "those other people." I hope to God this woman never finds her puppy. Lord, what a turnaround in attitude.

Your original post said she is 27 years old. Just a heads-up, but her Facebook profile says she graduated from HS in 2005 & is 22 years old. So not only was she wrong & a TOTAL jerk to you, but she also lied on her application. Just a "cherry on top" of your experience with her.

I have two spayed JRT and both are female, they fight all the time.I will never do that again. I think you just got lucky if you found two females that do get along,but you might not be so lucky next time around.The one thing Amy does know is Jack Russell Terriers so I would listen to her if I were you.

It's so hard to stay positive when you see so many people out there with this kind of attitude. No longer your concern? No longer your PROPERTY? PROPERTY? Argggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!
