Nicholas is a cuddly little male Jack Russell Terrier mix puppy, but you’d never guess his breed if you’d only seen his mother, Noel (also available for adoption through DogsOnly). We have no idea what breed Nicholas’ father might have been, and at only six to eight weeks old, he’s already looking like he’d going to be a big little boy – probably bigger that his mother. Best guess is that he will be 25 to 45 pounds, possibly even bigger.
Nicholas and his mother were found on Christmas Eve trotting along the side of a busy road in Hot Springs, Arkansas. When their rescuer stopped the car to pick them up, Nicholas’ mother almost ran away, but Nicholas had other ideas. He ran and tumbled his way straight to their rescuer. The momma dog wasn’t about to let her puppy get away from her, so she followed after him right into the arms of their rescuer.
Nicholas is will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion. However he is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Nicholas is at the moment, he will grow into an adult canine companion in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Nicholas’ new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, puppies grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
Nicholas' adoption fee is $125 and covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.

All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.

All of our foster
homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most
are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can
only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats.
We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
