How does one begin to describe the relationship between a JRT and the people he owns? I love all dogs, and have had several different breeds in my lifetime. NONE compare to this. Not just anyone is suited for this breed and I STRONGLY recommend thorough research and a lot of consideration before adopting one of these sweeties. Little known fact about JRT's...THEY HATE CATS! Unless they are raised as a pup with felines, you may want to warn the neighboring cat owners. My "Major" (major dog/minor body) has put 5 cats to their demise in HIS 9 lives (years) with us.

As I Said...

NONE (no other breed) can compare to the JRT!!! "POSITIVELY"! I am merely looking out for the best interest of the breed when I say people need to do their research. Too many JRT's wind up in shelters because of the ignorance of the people who didn't know what they were getting into. The JRT is not "naturally" fond of small children or cats. They ARE better suited for older children but because of their extreme intelligence...are easily trained to accomodate most situations. Quite frankly, I don't see a lot of "Negative" publicity about them, just proud owners of the breed who don't want to see them abused or neglected because of their nature.

Best little dogs in the world!
by: Tara

I got my first little shorty JRt from a small and reputable breeder two years ago. Now, I wouldn't even think of getting another breed! I have never had any of the negative things that are so often written about jacks happen with my little girl.

She gets along well with both cats and children. Her best play friend is another female jack. She has never destroyed anything except her toys which I replace frequently. Lara is an absolute delight to have around. We bonded very quickly and I take her with me everywhere that I possibly can. She's as well behaved as can be expected for a terrier!

I feel that this breed is getting a bad rap from the very people who should be promoting these dogs for the wonderful companions they are. With so many negative things written in the FAQ's I wonder how many potential JRT parents are simply being put off by what they read. I'd like to see the positive characteristics of these truly amazing little dogs emphasised. It's only fair...

Same Here
by: Anonymous

My JRT, Penny, likes cats too but she scares them before she can get too close. One time, we had a neighbors cat in the house and we were holding her. Penny came up to the cat wagging her tail frantically and started licking the cat all over the face. That was OK but then she started to paw at her stomach (like she does to me if I don't pay attention to her) and the cat got mad.

My other dog, Jackson, a rat terrier mix, he really hates cats. The same cat snuck into our home and Jackson chased him up the wall. He might have killed her if I hadn't help her escape.

A Different JRT
by: Anonymous

My dog, she loves cats, she wants to run and play with them all the time. But as shes full speed running at them, they look at her and disappear over the nearest fence in fear. My little JRT can't understand why the wont play, but then, she was raised with a cat.
