Overview
The Jack Russell Terrier or Parson Jack Russell Terrier originated in England in the 19th century. Their name derived from the Reverend John Russell, a hunting enthusiast, who was the first person to breed them for fox hunting. The Jack Russell Terrier is exceedingly adept at digging and burrowing into foxholes and dens.
Character
The Jack Russell Terrier is sturdy, hardy, and robust in appearance. They are outgoing with a keen expression. They have an inquisitive nature. This compact breed is very vocal but is never "yappy". They are fearless and are completely unaware of their small stature.

Does your Jack Russell Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Jack Russell Terrier is a loving and devoted breed. They are spirited, lively, amusing, and energetic. They get along with older, well-behaved, considerate children. They are not recommended for children under eight years of age. They do not get along with other pets. Their natural hunting instinct brings out their aggressive nature. They are highly intelligent and bold. Their courage often leads them into dangerous situations that may lead to fatal results. The Jack Russell Terrier requires an extraordinary amount of human attention. They are not well suited for a two career family.
Care
The Jack Russell Terrier requires minimal grooming. They need regular brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing should only be done when necessary. It is important to keep their nails trimmed regularly to prevent problems. They are easily over-fed and have a tendency to become overweight. The health issues that affect this breed include deafness, glaucoma, epilepsy, allergies, and skin problems.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Jack Russell Terrier has a dense double-coat that comes in three varieties: smooth, rough, and broken. The smooth coat has an outer-coat that is short and stiff. In the rough coat the outer-coat is longer. The broken variety is used to describe both dogs with outer-coats of different lengths or dogs that have longer hair on specific parts of the body. The Jack Russell Terrier is primarily white with black, tan, or tri-color markings. They shed constantly.
Training
The Jack Russell Terrier can be difficult, determined, and willful. They require firm and consistent guidance, as they are easily distracted. It is important for them to know whom their master is or they will take charge. Early socialization may moderately temper their aggressiveness. Obedience training is highly recommended. The Jack Russell displays talents in such areas as hunting, tracking, and agility. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Jack Russell Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Jack Russell Terrier thrives on exercise. They are very active indoors and require constant stimulation. They have the ability to adapt to apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, but do best with an average size yard that is securely fenced. They will become destructive if they become bored. They enjoy long walks and vigorous play sessions. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

We have a Jack Russell Terrier mix, given to us at age 5 by someone who couldn't keep her. She was almost 45 lbs when we got her. We found out she was hypothyroid, and after being on medication, she is now 35 lbs. She looks exactly like a JRT, but is twice as big and she is mellow, instead of being hyper. She will be 12 years old on 1/1/16. What other breeds could have produced a dog that looks exactly like a Jack Russell, but is twice as big and mellow? I know you can only guess, but I'd appreciate any guessing.

I have an 8-month-old Jack Russell Terrier. She is a purebred pup that I purchased from a reputable breeder. At about 3 months old her ears went straight up. Will they ever come back down?

If the puppy is registered as a purebred, then I would be very concerned. Jack Russell's are supposed to have the adorable little triangle flop to their ears. While some lines of Jack's have been known to have ears that stand up, normally stand up ears is known to be because of mixed breeding further back in the dog's pedigree. Contacting your breeder and taking your dog to your vet will be your best bet. Your breeder should be able to tell you if any of the other pups or dogs that he/she has bred have straight up ears. And your vet should be able to check your dog's DNA to see if she is purebred or not.

Do Jack Russells shed ?

Yes, the Jack Russell is an average of a 3 out of 5 on the shedding scale. A brushing once a week and a high quality diet will keep the hair down in your home.

I would love to buy a lemon colored Jack Russell Terrier male with ears that stand up and tilt forward, medium legs and smooth coat, tail maybe 2''. How do I go about finding a puppy that matches this criteria?

The true Jack Russell does not have stand-up ears. Their ears flop forward, it is mainly mixes that have their ears standing up. So most likely you will not find a pure-bred dog of that criteria. What you can do though is contact a couple of registered, reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeders about what you are looking for and if they have any puppies that are close to that. Or if they have ever had a puppy close to that.

I have a six year old Jack Russell. How do I introduce her to another Jack Russell puppy?

Does your dog enjoy the company of other dogs? Does your dog seek out other dogs when on a walk? Does your dog get territorial when another dog is on her property? Has your dog been the only dog in the home for its entire life? If the answers are yes, yes, no and no -- then make sure the first meet and greet is off your property and on a walk, so that the dogs bond by going somewhere together. But if the answers are anything but that, especially if the dog as been the only dog her entire life, then I would not suggest getting another dog. Your dog has lived on her own with her family for too long by herself and it is not fair to bring a puppy into an environment where the other dog is aggressive towards it. The puppy will learn that behavior is okay.

Excellent points; we attempted to introduce a second JRT puppy into our home when our first JRT was approximately 3 years old, and it did not work out well. Our first JRT started to exhibit signs of aggression toward the puppy, and he also started misbehaving - going to the bathroom in the house, defiant behavior - that sort of thing. Wouldn't recommend it, as the results could be disastrous, and it's really not fair to either dog. We'd have ten of the little rapscallions rummaging through our house if we could.
