To be honest Chaz, that JRT looks "normal" sized to me - in fact I've seen smaller!

Nellie is supposed to be that size, but she is much smaller - more like a skinny, long legged mini schnauzer than a butch Patterdale!

She does, however, come from good working terrier stock and whilst she is perfectly robust and healthy as you would expect, she is also chock full of energy and mischief, and an ordinary life would never be enough. Hence I need a behaviourist to help me control her when se has to be at home with me, instead of at work.

So even being a terrier owner, I'm with Pat on this one - they are not for the faint hearted! You do of course have lurcher/long dogs, so I guess you are more than up to the challenge of a terrier.

lol we've mostly had terriers and sighthounds together. Ranging from Dennis who I don't remember so I don't class him as one of my old dogs who was a smooth haired fox terrier I'll have to try and get a pic one day. To JRs (One was a rescue who was meant to be spayed, but a male found out she wasn't before us as we wern't ready for it and thought that the blood was a cut or something as at the same time she started bleeding our Deerhound had run through barb wire so it took us a while to realise that it wasn't his stitchs bleeding ) and our most recent terriers was a scottie cross JR and a yorkie cross JR. The Scottie cross Penny being the worst terror ever, I still have scars on my hand from her she was a little . But most round here are very big ones. more like a parson terrier size, but a JR, the working ones are tiny but that makes sense as they go under ground. One that even my bigger terriers occanisly tried to do lol.

I do think though that the smooth haired fox terriers that I have met are so lovely. And wouldn't be too much of a hassle for most people. The terriers that I do think are not for the faint hearted are, wire haried fox terriers, welsh terriers, patterdales and some JRs who can be very aggresive, Kim use to allow people in, but not out, and her fav person to do this to was our neighbour, who on more then one occasion attached herself to his behind, he has loads of scars all over it apparently, she just really didn't like him (not that I blame her) but I have had other breeds of dog that was worse then all the terriers put together!!

Also I think that all terriers from working stock are a lot more of a handful then pet bred ones. Someone that I use to work with had a BF that worked on a farm, and he had a mini wirehaired tri coloured working JR, which tbh honest apart from the working bit was my dream JR, but with coming from working stock espcailly as knowing and owning Diesel he would bring out the working part of any dog, as he has proved this with Kiera another mini JR, but unfornatly when she was bred it didn't work and she had a phantom, apparently it was too early in her cycle to bred from her

Good God, thats not cheap and cheerful, the pup I was going to get, the person said would cost me 100, and it was everything that I want. As I will admit I love the bigger ones, but I have noticed that the smaller ones are nicer, well in my perception, it might be complety wrong but there you go.

Jacks are great dogs, next dog for me is a jack.

Previous jacks in the family was Red who died of old age. Molly who went to live on a farm, Patch he got hit by a car and Mitch the last one had to be put down because he was inbred and really vicious (stupid breeder ARGGHHH!!!)

Anywho i will be getting a jack in next few years... love them guys.

I have what small may call a "mini" she is disabled because the breeders deliberately made her a 'tea cup' and she has pituitary dwarfism.
This is why I hate the teacup term.

My Bostons would stand on the back of my couch and just bark out the window for something to do and they had plenty of room, just nutty Terriers.
A well trained and loved Jack is not 'nuts' at all, any breed can be 'nuts'. The problem for Jacks is lazy people buy them, believing they are small and easy, whereas they need hours a day of exercise.

Mine don't bark constantly, because they are well stimulated and trained. Neither are mine hyper, in the house Jack Russells are very mch sofa dogs.
That is what is great about Jacks, they turn from hunting dog to sofa buddy in the space of 10 minutes.

There is a breed standard for Jacks and all this teacup,toy,mini is all a money making scam.If you took them in a show judges would tell you the same.There is too much of this going on let alone all the inbreeding and puppy milling..I could go on.Dont we have enough unwanted dogs as it is?
