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

Species group:

Other name(s): Rustralian, Australian Jack Russell Terrier

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 Rustralian is a cross between a pure Australian Terrier and a pure JRT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter an individual in a rescue or a breeder who wanted to create a good rat-catching dog for a farm.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Rustralian can often resemble a shaggy black and tan or solid colored JRT.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the reality is that the one-two punch of crossing these two energetic terrier breeds is likely to create a dog that loves to chase and may even dig in pursue of rats or other small animals. They may be a fine choice for the farm or barn-- and a poor choice for a small apartment with other small pets in the home.
