Jack Russell Terrier

Molly and Toffee

Ten-year-old crossbreed Molly and nine-year-old Jack Russell terrier Toffee have lots of energy and are looking for an adult-only home together. Molly is in good health and Toffee has epilepsy which requires medication. Poor Molly can be a little unsure around new people so is hoping for a calm, patient owner who can take things slow. She loves to play ball and would like a secure garden to play in. Toffee loves to be with you (preferably on your lap!) and adores cuddles and fuss but does, therefore, find it difficult being left home alone.

The world-famous charity released new statistics today showing they took in 404 dogs that were originally bought online in 2018 – up from 355 in 2017.
