Questions on "Jack" Russell Terriers pertaining to their health, well being, general questions on breed, types, size, shape, health, personalities, behavior problems, genetics, so called standard, what to look for when purchasing, and if you would be a good match with this wonderful and unique dog. Too many times, people buy jack puppies because they are absolutely adorable, and then a few months down the road they own this dog that they know nothing about and haven't prepared or trained for. I love the breed and everything about them and hope to provide some help, education and advice to current and prospective owners. I am a veterinary technician, dog trainer and breeder of Jack Russells.
I own four Jack Russells and I have been working with dogs for 30 years. My personal interest is in helping educate people about the very special qualities of this breed. I advocate education and research of the breed before you buy one, they are wonderful pets if suited with the right person/family. Do your homework first! I can help you determine if you are a good match with this breed. I want people to know also that there are two types of Jack Russells, the Parson hunter with long legs and the Shortie or Russell Terrier and their very distinct differences. I also hope to allay fears about their CRAZY reputations - which is not always the case. ~*~*~*IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ*~*~*~ PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT ENDORSE THE SALE OF ANY JACK RUSSELLS OR JACK RUSSELL PUPPIES THAT MAY BE ADVERTISED ON THIS PAGE.

I LOVE the Jack Russell Terrier breed and all it's glory and history! They are loyal and loving and wonderful companions as well as hysterically funny and smart. Contrary to popular belief, they are NOT all crazy and bouncing off the walls!

There are actually types of "jack" Russell Terriers. There is a diverse history of the breed. There are some pretty extreme differences.
Nothing can be further from the truth about the BAD REPUTATION that Jack Russells have been labeled with. Do your research, ask questions and get the facts before you judge ANY dog. 99.9% of the time it's the OWNERS of "bad" dogs that are at fault, most of the time unintentionally.

Hi Ed, I am SO sorry about Isabella. Your daughter, and your family must be devastated. It is unbelievable the way things happen sometimes. Dogs can die from depression, although it is pretty rare.

Hi Jenny, You said you've tried changing food? Wheat seems to be the biggest culprit out there and most foods use it in their recipe's - Hoping your pup is on a grain free diet. Newest product

Hello Sally, It sounds like he does not want to be disturbed from his nice warm bed! Perhaps he is having some arthritic pain somewhere that makes it uncomfortable to get up from a lying down position
