Those jacks are so fun! IMO they're one of the greatest breeds. Loving, friendly, agile, Hunters, and they'll sound the alarm if somethings amiss, can and will viciously attack any intruder, and can be trusted with almost any but the most obnoxious child.

They're a great all around dog. Better than most in my opinion.

All breeds have their strengths and weaknesses. But I've yet to find one with the jack Russell and rat terriers, probably the most similar breed in terms of temperament, size, and workability.

Some can be very temperamental though. Just like people, all animals have their own personality that may fall well outside the norm.

This is Reba. She was our first J.R. We bred her to a Rough Coat sire and kept this one (named B.T.) out of her first litter.
They are great dogs but don't put up with a lot of nonsense. Kids poking at Reba through her cage at horse shows turned her against children of all kinds for the rest of her life. Both she and B.T. have a memorial spot in our front yard.

These are Peanut and Jasper, Peanut is a rather large Pomeranian I acquired with the the acquisition of my wife, Jasper is just a little pup in this photo, he's a Teddy Bear (****zhu/Bichon cross). The other mongrel is my pride and joy, Jinx the german wirehaired pointer. The one pick is of her first pheasant kill

I got out of that obsession a few years back when I started working on the road and didn't want to have anyone else responsible for takin care of the hounds. Now I find it much more fun to go along with my friend's dogs and go home without having to feed, house, and listen to the stinkin things bark

Saved from a kill-shelter the night before his date for extermination. Been with me now for five years. One of the best friends (and burglary alarms) ever! Thank you God!
