The Jack Russell Terrier was developed in southern England during the mid-1800s by Parson John Russell, from whom the breed took its name.

Russell aimed to create a working terrier who would hunt with hounds, bolting foxes from their dens so the hounds could chase them.

Description. The Jug is not a purebred dog.

It is a cross between the Jack Russell Terrier and the Pug.The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of thecharacteristics found in either breed.


Use A Loose Leash to Train Your Jack Russell.

The command to stay and the command to come when called are often combined in obedience training lessons, and they do go naturally together.

Start with the Jack Russell on a loose leash, ask your Jack Russell to sit and then slowly back away.

Jack Russell or Parson Russell… The most striking difference between a Jack Russell terrier and a Parson Russell terrier is their size. Jack Russells are slightly smaller. The breed should measure 10-15″ on their shoulders (withers) whereas a Parson Russell is taller at 12-14″ on the withers.
They are of the Terrier class, and like many other Terriers they have a high prey drive and a prevalent hunting instinct which inclines aggression towards small animals due to their history as a hunting dog. These dogs can be dangerous around small children, if the correct precautions are not taken.

Same-sex aggression and aggression towards other breeds of dogs is well documented with this breed.

It is strongly recommended that no more than two Jack Russells (of opposite sex only) ever be permitted to stay together unattended.

A Jack Russell Terrier that bites can be a big problem.


Are Jack Russell's hypoallergenic dogs? Although there are many experts that will disagree with the term "hypoallergenic dog" there are some breeds that do well with those that suffer from mild allergies.

Depending on the type of allergy the person is burdened with, the Jack Russell Terrier may be a good choice.


Personality: Loves To Work (And Lives To Play) Jack Russell Terriers are hunting dogs by nature, so they enjoy running and chasing.

This smart little dog is not afraid to nip or bite back when it feels it is threatened.

Otherwise, they're a happy breed and thrive when respected.
