Is the Jack Russell Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

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 Jack Russell Terrier is a bouncy, high-energy breed developed during the 19th century to work with human hunters and be relentless in its pursuit of game-- often foxes that had to be dug out of their dens. As a result, this breed is high-energy, needs a great deal of exercise, expects to spend hours roaming the countryside with its people, and loves to dig. If your mixed-breed dog is predominantly Jack Russell Terrier, you should ask yourself if you'll spend enough time outdoors with your pet to do it justice.

Appearance / health:
Although every mixed breed dog is an individual, if your dog appears to be predominantly a Jack Russell Terrier, it should have a rather easy-care coat that doesn't require much more than regular brushing.

Behavior / temperament:
The playful, energetic Jack Russell Terrier mix makes an exceptional companion for an equally playful, energetic family.
