Before coming to RAWL, I’d been out wanderin’ the county for a while. My name’s Wilbur, my breed, Jack Russell – named after Rev. Jack Russell, a 19th-century Englishman. We were originally hunting dogs but gave that up a while ago – too much work. We remain smart, tenacious, tough, affectionate and loyal. Like to boss around bigger dogs and chase cats. Love my humans – when they call me, I smile. I’m crate-trained and probably housebroken. You come see me here at RAWL, I’ll smile at you, too – deal?
This past week, two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit www.rawldogs.org.
