Is a jack Russell likely to get along with another jack Russell? I'm thinking of getting a second one.

I have a 10 year old Jack Russell and thought he was lonely because he began digging and seemed so bored. I bought a male puppy 8 weeks and the older dog is really upset. I may have to sell the puppy. Never mix two of the same breed. They both are too territorial.

we have 3
by: Anonymous

Originally we had an active 2 year old female who we thought needed a playmate. One day we received an email from the Humane Society that they had a 6 month old female come in for adoption. We went to meet her and found out her litter mate brother was also at the shelter. We did not want to separate the 2 so we adopted both. The boy gets along great with both girls. However, we have had problems with the girls fighting. At times they get along perfectly, but then out of nowhere a fight will erupt. I wouldn't recommend 2 girls.

I have 2
by: Crazy for JRT's

I have a 3 yr old female JRT and a 5 month old Male JRT (from different parents) so far they get along great, they are each other's best friends. It really helps me out because JRT's need alot of attention, Rory and Eli keep each other entertained. They chase each other outside and play tug of war inside, best decision ever to get another lil guy :).

Owning two JRT
by: Anonymous

I would not recommend two male JRT at all, especially if you do not plan to neuter them. We have one JRT male that is 3 years old and bought a puppy JRT from separate parents and all was fine until the puppy reached 8 months old and now they get into fights over nothing. They both are alpha males and they both want to be the boss of the block!! We are letting one of our friends take the 8 month old and give him a new loving home because we don't want our doggies fighting over anything, let alone some leftover green beans that we threw out that neither dog wanted, but when one decided to have a second look and sniff, the fight was on....even though neither were going to eat a green bean to begin with!! Crazy dogs, but we wanted them both kept safe as neither have shown signs of aggression towards anything or anyone else before until now. We also have a female JRT that is 2 years old and all dogs get along until she goes into heat, then you have to separate if you don't want little puppies yet, but other than that, the female and male get along great.

Thanks for your words of wisdom!! We have been considering this for quite some time and I have been in tears considering getting rid of him, because I love this dog and he can be so sweet, but I too believe that the situation won't get better! Thanks for your advice, I appreciate it very much!

YOU SHOULD HAVE NOT BREED THEM!
by: ScooterMama

Dear Sarah,
Thanks for sharing your situation, BUT...
All would have been fine, but your breed them. GrandMa and the YoungOne. This never works. Now you have the problem that you do.

I would suggest re-homing the male with a family and no other animals there.

The aggession and territorial situation you now have will NOT go away.

The best to you and your poochies and let me know if I can help with this problem further.

Shalom, Stef, Belgium, TEXAN JRT/mix LOVER!!!

Warning!!
by: Sarah

I would like to warn you about this. We have a 6-yr-old female and we got a male JRT at 8 weeks old and raised him with her. They got along great until he reached sexual maturity and they bred. Then it was all downhill from there! We got our male neutered at 1-yr-old but this did not help the situation much! Our male and female fight ALL THE TIME and really bad fights too! Neither one of the dogs will back off because they are so stubborn. They both want to be the ALPHA and neither one is willing to back down, so it is a bad thing!! If I had it to do over again I would have NEVER gottan another Jack and been happy with just our female!!
Good Luck on this decision!!

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING:
by: ScooterMama

Hello,
First of all you need to determine a few things before getting that other JRT/mix.

How old is your dog? Male or female?
If your dog is under 10 years old, I would recommend the following. Get a younger dog OF THE OPPOSITE SEX, maybe 1 to 2 years old or younger. A mix with a purebreed is very good.
The JRT mixes are less aggressive and territorial, as well as healthier.

You will have a 15 to 18 year commitment with these two, so chose wisely. Rescuing the second dog is ideal, but it needs to not to many issues. Most can be re-trained out of the rescued dog, but can take a little time.

NEVER have two males or two females together, unless you got them as pups and raised them from that young age.

The purebreed will usually be the head pack animal and the second dog not. So, it's important to really consider a mix for your second poochie.

The best to you and let me know how things go.

Shabbat Shalom,
Stef, Belgium, JRT/MIX LOVER FROM TEXAS!
