Feeling very refreshed on a hot summer day while caring for Mylo, Buster and Macy, all Jack Russell Terriers.
The Jack Russell Terrier is a favorite among horse owners, dog sports enthusiasts, animal trainers for film and television, and people who simply appreciate his fearless personality, boundless energy, entertaining antics, and small size.
But beware! The trained Jack Russell that you see in movies doesn’t come that way. Teaching a Jack Russell to become a civilized companion is no easy task. It requires lots of time and patience as well as a strong sense of humor. He’s highly trainable, but has a mind of his own and won’t stand for boredom. If you don’t keep him entertained, he’ll find his own amusements, and you probably won’t be happy with the results.
If you have the time and patience to devote to him, he’s devoted to his people and loves being with them. On the downside, he’s an escape artist who’s best suited to a home with a yard and a secure fence that can’t be climbed, dug under, or jumped over.
