Poem for a British Jack

A friend sent me the following dog poems and is one of the best I've ever read.

And as an owner of a British Jack, I was overwhelmed with the author's ability to capture the true color and character of the dog.

If you have come to this site wondering just what a Jack Russell is like, then just read this poem and enjoy the fine art that accompanies it.

It will tell you everything you need to know.

Now, let us listen to this incredible little work of art...

Show me a Doberman,
I'll cut him to size.
I'll tear him to pieces
In front of your eyes.

I'm cocksure and bossy
The King of the Patch
Bring on your Alsations,
It won't be a match.

I'm a dirty street fighter,
My language is foul.
I'll fight to the death,
Never throw in the towel.

Don't step near my missus,
Don't push me too far,
Get right off my pavement
Take your hands off my car.

And when she's alone,
I'll sit on her knee,
She'll know she's quite safe,
Relying on me.

Don't walk by my lorry,
When I'm at a show.
When I'm guarding my ponies,
I'm lethal to know.

I'll follow a fox
To the depths of his lair,
But I like creature comforts...
Get out of my chair!

I won't walk or heel
Or sit when I'm told,
But I'm loving, protective,
Brave, loyal, and bold.

My life's full of moments,
Importance and bustle.
I know I'm the greatest...

I'm called a JACK RUSSELL!

Dog Poems for a Jack That is No Longer Here But Remembered

Gods Favorite by Susan Kinsey, West Point, MS

Dedicated to "Penny"

I wrote this poem when our first JRT "Penny" passed two years ago.  It was the only way I could express verbally what I felt we had lost.  We live in the country and she never missed one step we took, whether in a boat, on a baseball field, in the woods, or curled up with us nose to nose every night.  We bought her not knowing how much she would forever change our lives. I know how deep it hurts to lose a JRT, and how hard it is to love again, but I do know one thing, Life is harder still without a JRT.


A Jack Russell Terrier he would choose,
Living life without anything to lose,
Unending loyalty, most you’ve ever seen,
Born with smell so wildly keen.

Able to track an animal 500 yards away,
And yet never leave when told to stay.
And when the day has come to a close,
You’ll find it beside you, nose to nose.

Tireless kisses come your way,
At Every sunrise, every day.
Pausing for a cheerful bark, dancing in the way,
As if to say, C’mon, C’mon we gotta play.

Full of joy and love abounding,
Never still, with leaps so astounding.
Courage so bold and fear unabated,
Rushing right in and never waiting.

This pattern is woven all through your life.
Till the day comes, with final strife.
There are no answers, just the fact,
You were blessed to have a Jack.

Reflections Of The Terrier

A yip and a yop
Excited and bored
A slip and a slop
A growl and a snore.

The K9 world is full of words
For mailmen, cats, and flocks of birds
To announce the starting of the day
To scare the paperboy away.

Even though they are small
The dog within is what counts most of all.
Whether driving you crazy, barking all night,
Simply being lazy, as old dogs might.

Or being your friend, when you are blue,
Jack Russells are there, strong and true.
