JR stands for Jack Russell. These days, JR is not a happy camper. JR used to be a star on the streets of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. He used to do tricks. Vancouver Downtown Eastside, BC

He would run up walls and do the flip, always landing on his feet. He’s been included in a few murals of the Downtown Eastside.

But, like so many of us, he’s becoming old and he seems to forget. He forgets where he is, where he’s going… Not too long ago, he got lost and it took 3 days to find him back. So now he has to wear a leash at all times when he’s outside. He’s not a happy camper…
