If you plan to get a Jack Russell puppy, just be warned that they can potentially tear up your entire house! Most young dogs are like that so do your best to eliminate and prevent the situation from happening. It happened to us before so just giving everyone a fair warning.
Our dog, Eddie, is medium-sized and yet could be a handful whenever we walk him. Squirrels usually set him off and if you're not alert, could pull you for a second or two before you realize where he wants to drag you to.
He needs a lot of activities to keep him entertained. Daily walks are necessary and if you have the energy to do it twice a day, I'd say go for it.
They are very need and constantly crave your touch and kisses. Would take every opportunity to sit on our laps or squeeze himself in our bed. Eddie used to be jealous of our son but eventually warmed up to him and now is always by his side.
