Default Mini Jack russels.

Do you call the mini Jack russels mini or just small, I'm just asking as I call them mini, but I know that here the Jack Russell isn't bred to a standard, but with little dogs like this one who are so tiny I think of them as mini, they have such great temperaments, but as they are so small I would be really careful about where I would get one if I wanted one, I would probaly look more for a working litter, then go to the byb, as I think that as the working ones are bred to do so much work and exercise that the people who bred would have to bred for health not for the look like I think that all working breeders do, and I know that there will be some people who try to breed smaller and smaller of these dogs at some point which will cause mega problems. Any way what do you think, I have only met two who I think are of a good size, but have met smaller and love them

Heres a photo of one, the girl that I found yesterday, but I have a pic on my phone of another little girl, but I have lost my phone, anyway once I find my phone I will get a pick of her aswell.

Which is why I would get one from working parents, I kind of think that in theory if you get one from working stock that they should be healthier then getting them from someone who just wants to breed a litter for the money, but I don't want one, I just love the personality of the Jack.

I always think Jacks are small until my chihuahua bounces up to say hello to one. Then they look enormous for some reason!!

I call them small as thats realy what they are.

I use to know someone that had what they called a "mini" jack russell, she was a lovely tiny thing. Use to play with Max like she was a big dog.

That is one breed I cannot stand they are crazy dogs. Bark for no reason and are so hiper they are nuts!! Sorry so blunt, but I see NO beauty in JR's at all and just tooooo crazy with the Terrier being typical of needing to run and run. 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.

Have not voted as JR `s come in such a wide variety that small or large is not enough.

Some will be smaller, some larger , some wired haired , some have straight longer legs, some have small queen anne legs.. long bodied small bodied.. the list goes on.

Unless you are buying a Parsons Russel, (pedigree) you will have no idea what your pup will end up like..even if it comes from two smaller parents.. it could be longer legged, broken coated.

Buying a JRT from working breeders will not guarantee you a healthier dog... and mos people who breed them to work will have no interest in health testing their dogs... and to be honest as far as I know their is no registered health problems with the breed, cant find any breed ethics to confirm this......dont get me wrong, they will and can suffer with many of the issues other breeds do.. Luxating Patella... being one of them...

But the main reason for breeding these dogs is to work...and as long as the parents of the litter are good workers that is all most breeders will be concerned about.

And sadly many will also breed for money.. the JRT is a very popular dog in the UK, they are easy to breed and easy to sell, you will find many many country folk, will own and breed them.. from the terrier men, to farmers, horsey people... and a lot of these people breed for the pocket money they will get from the matings..

You can look in your local paper on any given day and find at least one litter of Russells... most will go for around 100...

One of the ways puppy mills make money is to sell dogs that are just small as "mini" or some other improper term. They do this with shelties, too.

There is no such thing as a "mini" sheltie or a "mini" JR. They may be small for standard, but they are just small shelties or JR. Just like some people are smaller than others.

Nobody should fall for this scam. They are not worth any more money than any pet quality Jack or Sheltie would be.
