Virtue: Peace

Jack Russell Terrier
2 years old - Short coat - Male

Peace is a 2 year old tiny JRT mix who is smallest of the Seven Virtue Dogs. He weighs 9lbs. He's a pretty chill guy. He just kind of takes everything in and assesses everything going on around him. He is the one in the whole group who seemed to just be ok with all the chaos around him. Peace is very loving and he's a snuggler and a cuddler. He has not proven to be a big barker.

The Seven Virtues are seven sweet dogs who we rescued from a terrible hoarding situation, one of the worst we’ve seen in our almost twenty years of rescue. The hoarders reached out to us and begged us to come take their dogs. When we arrived, we realized we didn’t have the capacity to take all 30-40 of them into our rescue and we called Animal Control to contact other rescues to come help with the rest. These poor babies were being kept in a home with countless other dogs and cats. They weren’t fed regularly and were forced to live in their own filth much of the time. Our rescuers thought about putting on face masks just to go into the home because the odors were so unbelievably bad.

Peace gets along great with other dogs. He is living in a fabulous foster home and his past life is long gone. He is loving living inside the home. He loves to snuggle on the bed and he can't believe that there are an endless supply of dog beds he can choose from all over the house. He has learned how to use the doggy door. He's just doing so well. He will come into a new permanent home and settle right in...

We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are children in the home they need to be at least 8 years old.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
