Shetland is one of the sweetest Jack Russell's you will ever get the chance to meet. he wasn't always disabled. he was healthy active and could do anything he put his mind to, up till about eight years ago. he lost use of his back half of his body. With the help of my step dad, him and I worked with Shetland teaching him how to use his back legs again, He still has trouble with his body functions and is slowly going blind, I believe he'll be leaving us soon and a piece of me will die with him. but I love him. him and his sister have been with us for 16 years.
That Eric from True Blood is such yummy eye candy, mama! Meowww. I mean, WOOF!
Sophie is a four-year-old Jack who acts like a toddler child. Seriously, everything is about Sophie, Sophie, Sophie. I had a Jack Russell before her (Bella) who tragically got hit by a car, and I immediately had to get another jack russell to keep my mind occupied. Sophie has been nothing short of amazing, and I tell her all the time that she saved me from being so depressed about the loss of Bella.
She follows me everywhere I go, and if I leave her sight, she cries and squeaks.If I have my laptop out, she has to be in my lap also. Some people would get annoyed and irritated by this clingyness, but I find it adorable, and wouldn't her trade her in for anything(despite her shortcomings, like not wanting to be outside in the winter without me. High maintenance much?).
She has brought so much joy to this family, and I truly think that every dog-lover should at least borrow a Jack for a week; she would cheer up even the most depressed person.
Picolla was given to us from my son's ex-g/f when she had to move out from her parents home & no longer care for her... I wasn't sure about what kind of dog she was since I was never interested for her breed, "Jack Russell"... I didn't know anything about it except I heard that it's very energic... Well, she sure got full of energy & thank goodness that we have a very large fenced in back yard !!! She runs around all day chasing birds & stuff !!! But when her down time, she's so cuddly & sweet !!! She gets along w/my other dogs from the beginning & sure is a delight to have her !!! I feel really lucky that she was given to me otherwise I've never known how great "Jack Russell" was !!!
Buddy is a one and a half year old Jack Russell Terrier who has come a long way since we've had him. He was 6 months old when we got him and scared to death of men. Shortly after we brought Buddy into our family, my husband and I found out we were going to be having a baby. With some hard work and love, our little Buddy now loves EVERYONE and he has been wonderful with our little boy since his birth. I think our son and our JRT Buddy are going to be just that... best buddies!
Harvey or Harv as we call him will be 5 years old in January, we always wanted a wire-haired jack russell and we had gone to see as many as 10 jack russell puppies but as much as i would love to of had them all, Harvey captured my heart.
He is a very cheeky but extremely clever little boy, he doesn't have a bed as he chews and rips up every single one we have buy him. So instead, he gets to sleep on a double bed and when attempting to make it in the morning, he insists on staying put! - he is absolutely ruined! He will bark for England, and a very good guard dog. If he can hear somebody coming or the doorbell goes, he will bark till his hearts content.. you need ear muffs!
Besides his cheekiness, he is soft as a brush with a kind heart and will always come for cuddles. If you are upset or cry, he will come up to you and nussle his head in your arms and give you a lick or two.. even three! to see if you are ok.
He is a truly amazing dog who is short of a voice box!
