Sparrow is a 13-year-old male Jack Russell terrier (ID No. A474688). This energetic guy doesn’t act his age. He loves meeting new people and going for walks. He can be a bit noisy when he wants attention, so he would do best in a house rather than an apartment.

Sparrow knows how to sit on command and takes treats very gently. Sparrow would do best in a home with children 16 years or older, who will know to make sure he doesn’t overexert himself. The veterinarians at the shelter have diagnosed Sparrow with a heart murmur and he may need special care in the future, and will need regular visits with a veterinarian to keep an eye on it.

Sparrow is neutered, current on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. You can find out more about Sparrow on his Pet Finder profile at

Meet Sparrow, and other additional animals available for adoption, at Regional Animal Services of King County’s Pet Adoption Center in Kent, 21615 64th Ave. S. For information, email or call 206-296-PETS.
