Meet the Junction Jazz
SWESR rescued 17 English Setters seized by Animal Control in Junction TX from a hoarding situation. Their ages range from 1-6 years old. These dogs have lived their lives in deplorable conditions, crammed together in small pens without vetting or proper daily care and nutrition. Their resilience is one of the most amazing things we have ever witnessed. Most of them are timid and all of them will need gentle and patient homes to decompress and learn to trust and that the world is much bigger than a small, dirty pen full of dogs.

Their fosters and foster to adopt homes need to be prepared to work on basic things like leash walks, house training, learning not to be scared by car rides and not to worry about what might happen to them next. We are not confident that any of them will be candidates for hunting with such a rough start on life and no training before rescue. Their lives should be one without expectations other than being a happy family member. All of the JJ dogs need homes with secure physical fences and should be considered high flight risks with no “worldly” skills and not likely to return if they escape, not car/street/traffic wise.  
Melba - Just Rescued
Melba from the Junction Jazz rescue is estimated to be about 1.5 years old. She is very sweet and is one of the more timid JJ dogs and will benefit from another active dog in her home. She is in boarding near San Antonio and in need of a foster or foster-to-adopt home asap. Melba is good with other dogs and has not been tested with cats yet but all the JJ dogs require slow intros to homes with cats and should not be considered cat safe until they have lived successfully with cats in a home environment. Check back for updates!



Gillespie - Just Rescued
Gillespie from the Junction Jazz rescue is estimated to be about 1.5 years old. Likely Davis’ brother he is more confident and ready for this new and exciting life. He is in a foster home in San Antonio, TX. Gillespie is good with other dogs and has not been tested with cats yet but all the JJ dogs require slow intros to homes with cats and should not be considered cat safe until they have lived successfully with cats in a home environment. Check back for updates!

She is in boarding near San Antonio and in need of a foster or foster-to-adopt home asap. Mary Lou is good with other dogs, but cats not so much, she is way to interested in setting and chasing. Check back for updates!



Peggy - Just Rescued
Peggy from the Junction Jazz rescue is estimated to be about 1 year old. She is on the timid side and needs to have another active dog in her new home to help her learn and settle.
