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

Species group:

Other name(s): Jacairn

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

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the cross between two spirited terriers will give you a terrier type animal, although whether it resembles the Cairn or the JRT will be a matter of chance.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, some owners have reported that you can expect a high-energy dog who loves to be on the go with you. A neglected Jacairn could make trouble.
