Tips for Selecting a Jack Russell Terrier Breeder

Breeders need to be reputable and put the health and safety of the dogs ahead of any monetary gain.  Don't be surprised if the breeder asks questions to make sure that you are capable of raising a Jack Russell or any dog for that matter. A breeder may also ask for references.

Visit theJack Russell breeder or rescue group., Tour the facilities to make sure they are clean.  Ask to meet at least one of  the  parents of your puppy. Usually only the female is on premis, so ask to see records regarding the father.  If the dog you are adopting is an adult, ask as much background information as possible such as child friendliness, how the dog acts around other pets etc.  

Note the Behavior of the Breeders own Dogs: Observe how other dogs react to the breeder, is their a friendly supportive atmospherre?

Tip: If the breeder's dogs look nervous or anxious, it is a sign that all might not be right.

Check Health Records: Ask questions such as potential health problems, full grown size, temperment, training methods.   Ask for vaccination records and if the puppies were screened by a veterinarian and were any potential health problems indicated. Note that smooth coat Jack Russells will shed more than those with a Rough or Smooth Coat.

The good news is that in general Jack Russells are a healthy breed. There is an above average incidence of some diseases such as:

  1. Eye problems such as Cataracts and Lens Luxation (dislocation of the eye lenses from their normal location, causing the lens to become painful and the eye red. Seen in older Jack Russells.
  2. Cerebellar Ataxia: nervous system disorder that is being bred out of the breed
  3. Congestive Heart Failure
  4. Cruciate Ligament Ruptures: injury in athletic breeds where the knee ligament tears causing the thigh and shin bone to rub together
  5. High and Short Toes (only a problem in show dogs)
  6. Legg-Calve Perthes Disease - lameness in the rear leg due to high bone degeneration
  7. Check Breeding Frequency: Ask how often the female dog has been bred since breeding should only take place every other time a dog is in heat, with rest every third season.  The male dog is optimally between the age of 2 and 10. 

    Tip: Breeders that breed to often are more focused on making money than in breeding healthy Jack Russells.
  8. Age of Puppy: Puppies are usually bred after a breeder makes the sale and and are then sold between age 7 to 12 weeks.  Puppies that are older may have trouble with people and pups taken earlier than 6 weeks are taken too early
  9. Request Documentation: If you are seeing Jack Russell Terrier breeders about a pure bred pup ask for pedigree, documentation which is a family tree diagram (goes back 3 generations). You will also receive paperwork that transfers ownership of the puppy to you.
  10. Get a Contract: Contracts for purebred dog can make demands that may surprise you. This includes:
  11. Return policies such as in the case of health problems or if you decide you can no longer keep the puppy 
  12. Neutering or spaying requirements
  13. Co-ownership in case you decide to breed your dog.  Contracts may also prevent breeding.
  14. Guarantee or refunds and circumstances that need to exist

An alternative to Jack Russell Terrier breeders are rescue groups. Check our list of rescue groups
