  1. i was just wondering how many of you have jack russells weve heard about the more popular breeds (frencies, boxers, yorkshire terriers)
    i love my little man hes a sweetheart so loving and such a strong personality!
    hes cuddled up with me on the sofa as i write this!!!

    jacks are very popular in the u.k i was wondering if there are many in other parts of the world.

  2. my bf's father has 4..personally not a fan of them..
     
  3. my brother rescued a JR girl and named her Casey. I don't think Casey is a typical JR though. She is so mellow and loves to couch-potato and snuggle under blankets. She's a real sweet heart! I will go grab a picture to post.

  11. I have one! He is a wild man! Cute as he can be, though.
     
  12. In a former neighborhood, someone had 3. They barked like crazy when anyone walked by the house and if they were outside on leashes with the owner they barked and pulled/jumped at people like they wanted to bite their heads off. It turned me off of them, which probably isn't fair. Maybe 1 or 2 would be better, or really good training.

    I think the tv show with Wishbone made the breed more popular.
     
  13. I'm thinking my next dog will be a rough coat JRT- we have three cow dogs, but the terriers are dear-some are rotten, but I see many, many great ones. They do need a firm hand!
     
  14. I've had 3 JRTs over the years. My father's folks, in N. Ireland, bred them. They are a very smart little dog (sometimes too smart) but not the easiest. They come in two catagories...under 10"/over 10" height, rough or smooth coat. I notice more under 10" in the US. My little "Jimmy Cagney" is the lemon/white color and the nastiest little dog. The only nasty dog I've ever owned (and I've owned/bred many breeds of dogs). Can't trust him, all my friends are afraid of him. He growls at everything, and has been known to nip. The other two were wonderful, so it may be inbreeding. He has tormented my horses and the other dogs. He sleeps with my husband and will growl/nip, if you move your leggs too quickly. Now that's a rotten dog! But we love him, warts and all...no one else would put up with him. He's 8 years old now...always hoping he'll get better.
