Texas Russell Rescue is the Texas group of Russell Rescue, Inc. We are a network of volunteers located throughout Texas who are dedicated to rescuing and rehoming homeless Jack Russell Terriers. We foster them in our homes until we find them their perfect forever home.

Name: Dandie
Location: Texas
Sex: Female

Russell Rescue, Inc. first became aware of Dandie in May of 2017.  She was living with an elderly woman in Louisiana.  The woman was not able to care for a 7 month old, energetic puppy like Dandie and was considering dumping her at the canal.  Thankfully for Dandie, her hero named Natalie came along.  Natalie was helping care for the elderly woman and offered to take Dandie to live with her.  She contacted Russell Rescue for help finding Dandie a loving, forever home.  Amy, a volunteer with Russell Rescue, offered to foster Dandie.  Amy lives in Austin, Texas so the arrangements for transporting Dandie to her began.  After many phone calls and emails, we had a plan!

On June, 3rd the fun began!  Several awesome volunteers all agreed to drive legs of the trip to get little Dandie to her foster home.  The journey began early in the morning in Louisiana with Michael and Natalie meeting.  Natalie said a bittersweet goodbye to Dandie, and Michael headed to meet up with the next volunteer.  Michael arrived and met Patti a little East of Houston, Texas.  Little Dandie headed off to the next stop.  Traffic through Houston was awful, but Dandie was snuggled down in her crate with no worries!  Onward West to Columbus, Texas!  Patti met Janet in Columbus and handed off Dandie to her.  After some puppy hugs and kisses, Janet loaded up Dandie in her crate and headed off to Bastrop, Texas.  Almost there!  Of course, no trip is complete without a stop at Buc-ee’s!  The lines were terrible!  Dandie arrived in Bastop to meet her foster mom Amy.  They were ready to make the last leg of the trip.  Amy and Dandie headed home to Austin where they arrived safe and sound!  Dandie was glad to be out of the crate!  She settled in and met her new JRT buddy Austin.  It sure does feel good to be home!  You can tell by the smile on Dandie’s face! 

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this possible for Dandie!  It takes a village to save these little Jack Russell’s.  We have a great village!
