What do you think. Is This A Jack Russell?
So whadda ya think? Is this a Jack Russell?
I received an email from Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee wanting to know if I knew if this little cutie is a Jack Russell.
They needed to know so they could know what breed category to put him in. I wasn't sure. What do you think? After looking at the pictures, you can post your comments in the easy form below.
Any experts out there?
They say, at this fine rescue group, that he is definitely a little spitfire.
Case in point, he chases a 120 pound Great Pyre mix they have there! (Napoleon complex)
That definitely sounds Jack Russell.
His fore-arms, front paws and chest really have the JRT look to me.
But all I know for sure is that this little dog is adorable looking!
