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

Species group:

Other name(s): Jack Chi

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 Jack Chi is a cross-breed between the Jack Russell and the Chihuahua. Although cute, they are not a true pure breed. Study the personality of both parents to get an idea of what you might expect.

Appearance / health:
As a cross-breed, the Jack Chi can vary in appearance, but expect a small dog with a rather active spirit.

Behavior / temperament:
With any cross-breed, you have to approach the dog as an individual. However, many owners are enthusiastic about the Jack Russell / Chihuaha mix and report that their pet is an energetic, right-sized family dog that isn't quite as yippy as a pure Chihuahua.
