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

Species group:

Other name(s): Jacktese

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 Jacktese is a cross between a pure Jack Russell Terrier and a pure Maltese, 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 toy that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Jack Russell Terrier / Maltese Mix will tend to be a small toy that's all kinds of cute.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Jacktese can be an excellent pet for the calm, consistent owner who can handle the occasional episodes of acting-out. They can be lapdogs and portable pets who love to go places with you, but sometimes they may also be a tad hyper.
