well, i'll go against the grain and say that i am more of a terrier person

i've met some really fun jacks, and i've met some really out of control jacks. it's so dependent on the owner. they are a LOT of dog in a small package, and i can appreciate that. i like dogs with minds of their owns and attitudes to match. unfortunately, a lot of people buy them because they're little and cute and don't train them and then the dogs are out of control.

but that's not a jack problem, that's a dumb owner problem.

Wow - seems alot of people having hormonal mood swings at the moment?

Just ignore threads you don't like....

Personally, I like Jack Russels. I like dogs, full stop.

Forum is for folks aged 13 and over for a reason I suppose.

Lacy, please re-size your signature, it is quite large and takes up quite a bit of space. If you need help doing so, please PM me. Thank you.


As far as JR's....I like them if they are well trained. I haven't met many in my life so I can't say that they are my favorite breed. But they have potential just as any other dog has also.

I LOVE Jack Russell Terriers!

Kona is 1/2 Jack Russell Terrier.

Yup, I was going to say the exact same thing. JRT's can be a wonderful dog if they are trained properly, given the proper amount of exercise, so on and so fourth. Kona has the high energy of a JRT, and it takes an insane amount of time to get that energy to burn off at night before bed (I usually have a long play session to get her worked out). Alot of JRT owners don't take measures like this to make sure their little Jack Russell Terrorist (LOL!) stays out of trouble!

Really...No I do not like them

But if some one here has one that I know...Virginia maybe...not sure if Lacy is part Jack? Yes I like hers but for the most part no!

I like soft furry animals!

Also did you see that she has a shock collar on !!! UGH!

We don't know if Lucy is part Jack. . .she's part some terrier, be it rat terrier, toy fox terrier, etc. and part chihuahua. I work very hard to occupy Lucy, it's a must if you have a terrier-type.
I like well-behaved Jacks.

I like them sometimes, some of them have a lot of hyperness problems. My grandpa had three jack russell terriers on his farm, he raises black and tan coon hounds and redbone coon hounds for raccoon hunting, and beagles for rabbit hunting. I'm not sure why he got the jacks, I think just on a whim because someone offered them. They were all very sweet and would follow me everywhere while I was out there, they loved to play and be petted. The male was wire-haired and he was SO cute... he was also a tough little booger! My grandma is very afraid of snakes and never did like dogs at all, despite grandpa having quite a few of them...but she liked the little male jack russell because he would kill snakes! They did have aggression problems with his other dogs though... one of his beagle pups somehow got out of its pen and the three jacks killed it After that he ended up selling them to a friend of his. But I did really like those three dogs anyway, jack russells aren't my favorite type of dog but they are very cute

I like the Parsons (I prefer to use that name, myself). I don't mind the hyper activity, because it's part of the dog. If you don't like that, then that's perfectly okay, just don't buy/adopt one.

I've had two Parsons, and adored them both. One was extremely hyper, and the other was extremely laid back, unless she had a tennis ball in her mouth.
