A Quick Tip by webstyler

A good companion for a family or an individual, these smart little dogs are full of energy and attitude. This dog breed is capable of feeling/understanding your mood and wants to snap you out of it when you're feeling down or bored.
My little Wednesday, knows she can get out of trouble with her cuteness and she gives me dirty looks when she's annoyed with me. She loves to snuggle, but thinks she is better than 'fetch the ball'. My Jack Russell is half Rat Terrier, which calms her down a bit from a full breed Jack Russell. Dog breeders are trying to turn this mix into a more official breed and it is recommended, because my dog likes to sleep as much as she likes to run circles around me, and the couch, and the bed, etc.
Like every breed, they calm down with age, but are always very excitable. Sometimes they get too excited causing the brain to not work so well and selective hearing to come into play. It's not uncommon that this dog will run off to play with anyone or anything and bringing them back to reality might take a minute.
This dog is easy to train and teach tricks to, but also has moments of defiance because they think they are smarter than you!

Jada the Jack Russell Terrier
We have a Jack Russell and her name is Jada. She has a lot of energy and loves to run and play. If you're the lazy sit-on-the-couch-all-day kind of person then this breed may not be great for you because these dogs need lots of exercise. We love to take Jada to our local dog park because it helps her develop socialization and because, though she's usually the smallest, she is always the fastest beating out every other dog in retrieval. It definitely makes her stand out despite her size. On that …

Jack Russels are a hoot. But you'd sure better love getting LOTS of exercise! They'll definitely keep you running 'cause they just never stop.

Probably the only type of dog I would get. They're smart, fast and star in old prime time shows such as Frasier.

I have an obsession with creating the things that I see when I close my eyes.   I have been drawing all of my life. What once was a hobby has become a passion and it is time to share my visions. … more
About this topic


The Jack Russell Terrier is a small, principally white-bodied, smooth or rough-coated terrier that has its origins in fox hunting. The name "Jack Russell" has been used over the years to describe a wide array of small white terriers, but now after a drawn out legal battle the JRTCA (Jack Russell Terrier Club of America) and its affiliates have won the exclusive rights to use the name Jack Russell Terrier to describe their particular variant of the dog).  Commonly confused with the Parson Russell Terrier, the AKC and affiliate variant, and the Russell Terrier, a shorter legged, stockier variety, the working Jack Russell Terrier is a unique terrier which has been preserved in working ability as well as appearance much as it existed over 200 years ago.

Jack Russells are sturdy and tough, measuring between 10" and 15" at the shoulder. The body length must be in proportion to the height, and the dog should present a compact, balanced image. Predominantly white in coloration (more than 51%) with black and/or tan markings, they exhibit a smooth, broken or rough coat. The skin can sometimes show a pattern of small black or brown spots, referred to as "ticking", that do not carry through to the outer coat. All coat types should be dense double coats that are neither silky (in the case of smooth coats) nor woolly (in the case of rough coats). The head should be of moderate width at the ears, narrowing to the eyes, and slightly flat between the ears. ...
