I was getting my hair cut this morning when my stylist mentioned that she has a friend that needs a foster home for a JRT. The dog was living with the family (children and two other dogs), but they moved to a place where they were only allowed to keep two dogs. They found an empty barn and have been keeping the dog there for 2 months and they visit to give it food, etc. It's getting colder in Illinois now (dropped below freezing the past two nights) so the situation isn't good for this little dog. Apparently there is a guy that keeps horses nearby and occasionally shows up to whip the horses and the dog. In sum: The dog has been neglected and abused and hasn't lived in a house in a few months. Should I rescue it? We would have to crate him while our lovebug Herschel roams the house until we develop a better idea of his personality. We don't have a fenced yard (which is absolutely necessary for a JRT), and the dog would be alone for 3 hour periods during the day. Some sort of home is better than no home, but are we the right people for this job?
