Is the Jack Russell Terrier / Dachshund Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Jackshund

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 Jackshund is a cross between a pure Dachshund and a Jack Russell Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
The Jackshund can be quite variable in its appearance, depending on what kind of coat it inheritances from the Dachshund side, as well as the exact proportion of Dachshund or JRT traits it inherits. Some of these mixes don't look quite as long and low as you might expect, but others do.

Behavior / temperament:
The personality of a mixed breed is never predictable, and you will simply have to approach each individual Jackshund as a true individual. Properly trained and socialized, you would expect a loyal dog that loves being included in the family, but the specific personality could vary widely. This mix may love to give chase if you don't watch out.
