Your Next Best Friend: Jay

I’m Jay, a Lakeland/Jack Russell terrier mix. My breeds originated in mid-18th-century Great Britain. Cool, huh? I’m 7 years old, about 16 pounds, a male and, typical of my breeds, affectionate and easy to train. Surprisingly, as terriers go, I am fairly low-energy; however, true to terriers, I do have a bit of a prey drive. I like dogs but prefer them to be around my size. One requirement for my new home is “adults only.” If you’re an adult, hurry down!

This past week, none 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
