I want to get a JRT, but i'm 17 years old and I still go to school for 8 hours of the day, should I still get one if i'm not home for that long.. Also, my parents work, so no one would be home for 8 hours

Yes it will be ok. I do the same thing and my parents work, too. Just make sure your Jack Russell Terrier has water, food and can run around. Preferably in a fenced area.

You should not get any puppy if you are not home that long. It takes time and is a huge responsibility so it would be unfair for the animal to purchase it because it is cute but leave them alone the rest of the day. Having a backyard is still not sufficient because Jack Russells need stimulation and someone that will spend time with them. I know it is tempting but please don't! Wait until you have enough time to dedicate to the animal and you will definitely have a positive experience.
