Is the Jack Russell Terrier / Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Cav-a-Jack

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Cav-a-Jack is a cross between a pure Jack Russell Terrier and a pure Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an apartment-sized companion that's more relaxed than the purebred JRT.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, many Cav-a-Jacks look more like the JRT than the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, some owners have reported that this mix can make a fine family pet who is much more of a chill lapdog than you might expect from the JRT parent.
