Will my Jack Russell get along with a Maltese/Pomeranian/Celia mix?
Waylon Jennie, my Jack Russell
My husband and I are childless and own a 3 year old broken coat Jack Russell (female) along with two other dogs. One is a rescue dog... Part Rottweiler/German Shepherd (male)who is 6 years old. The other dog (female) is also a mix breed. A medium sized German Shepherd mix. We live on an 18 acre farm, and while the two larger dogs roam free, the JRT is more of an indoor dog. When she goes out, I keep an eye on her as there are all sorts of critters roaming around at any given time. All of our dogs get along very well - especially our JRT and Rottweiler. My question is this: A family member who's in university got a Maltese/Pomeranian/Celia mix (male) who's about 6 months old, and bit off more than she could chew - no pun intended! :-) She recently asked if we'd be willing to take her dog, as she's working for the summer and returning to school in the fall. Her parents are unable to keep the dog. I'm not very worried about our larger dogs, but I'm wondering if our JRT will get along with the new dog should we take him? She's basically my baby, so I'm worried that she may get jealous. Also, how big do you think this dog will be when he's full grown? Thanks in advance for any advice you may be able to offer!
