Our Jack Russells are family raised, born in our home, and handled and socialized from the day they are born. All puppies are guaranteed to be healthy and free from congenital defects, and have had their first shots and deworming. Our dogs are excellent family companions and love children.
Jack Russell Terriers are very loyal, friendly little dogs with a huge heart and lots of courage. They are truly a big dog in a little body! They are very protective of their territory and their people. They love children and get along well with most other house pets, if introduced at a young age. They are, however, rodent hunters, so keeping them in the same room with your favorite hamster or guinea pig is not recommended!
Because they are so brave, Jacks have no concept of their size and may take on a larger opponent, say the neighbor’s Rottweiler. Be aware of what dogs are in the vicinity of your property, and keep an eye out for potential conflicts when out for a walk. Jacks are not necessarily aggressive and may not start a fight, but you can bet they will not give up if one should begin. Jacks are most happy exploring the yard, looking for mice, gophers or moles. They usually do not dig without a reason, and a good supply of toys should prevent any unwanted excavation. Rawhide chews are especially good during teething periods, and as occasional treats. Old socks or short lengths of rope tied in a knot make great tug of war toys.
Jacks love to come indoors and sit on a lap, and especially sleep in your bed! They do not consider themselves dogs, and do not think they should be put out with the dogs! They do get cold in temperatures below 45-50 degrees if left out in a kennel. Some manage to keep their body temperature up if allowed to run and play, but it depends on their age, weight, and how acclimated they are to the cold weather. You can tell if your dog is cold by feeling his ears; if they are cold, he is cold.
Jacks also love to go for rides in the car, and do not think they should be left behind. They like to look out the front window and navigate. They are great traveling companions, and most hotels/motels will allow small dogs for a minimal deposit. Jacks also love to assist in the yard, killing the rake, broom or shovel. Some people may be intimidated by the ferocious growl (such as your gardener), but they are just playing and can usually be stopped by a good “NO!”.
If you have any questions about your puppy or Jack Russells, please give us a call. We would appreciate photos from time to time, to see how your puppy matures. If for any reason you are unable to keep your puppy in the future, give us a call, and we may be able to help you find another home. Enjoy your new “master”!!
