I LOVE jrts. You have to know how to train them though or they will turn out to be a hell hound. I had one (her name was Tika) she was a smooth coat, short legged JRT. BEST, SMARTEST dog I have ever had the pleasure of owning! Very sweet, I house trained her by the time she was 8 weeks (I purchased her when she was 7 weeks old). one day I will have another!

Hey all.I have to say of all the dogs I've owned,and that's a fair few,Jacks have been the best dogs ever.I have bred three litters,kept a few,sold the rest very quickly and they certainly are not cheap hence the reason I started breeding.Smart as whips,so easy to train,never had any health problems,kill all the rats and mice in seconds.Could it be there's some backyard breeding going on,maybe inbreds and bad genetics.Train them when they are young,socialize them and don't take them too young.My Jacks have given me more pleasure and entertainment than I could wish for.For such a fantastic dog they sure are misunderstood.

I think it's the same for most breeds if they are bred correctly from good lines and raised correctly and trained properly by their new owners etc then it's all good Genitics will be a contributy factor in this as well so your probably right BYB plays a very bad role too 8 weeks + is a good time to let them go to new homes but not earlier than 8 weeks older yes no problem too!

One of the dogs that made me want a dog desperately was a neighbor's JRT. She was ADORABLE! She loved to chase a ball and if he had her out when I came home from work she would be all over me wanting petting. Fiesty and active but cute and social too.

I believe that a huge ingredient in how a dog behaves is its people. Dogs don't train themselves and a lot of people think if a dog is small then it needs no play or stimulation at all. These are obviously smart little dogs and they need outlets. I understand that especially well since we adopted our Border Collie mix. She's perfect in the house! But she gets long walks, lots of chuck-it, has had a lot of training and is now involved in agility 2 or 3 times a week. When we first got her I started reading online about BC's ripping people's drywall out they were so crazy and it scared me to death, but since we've worked with Layla from the time she was a pup and keep her "doing" she's great. The horror stories seem to come from really lazy dog owners IMO.

That being said, there is something to the idea that when a breed gets popular poor breeding becomes more frequent in order to try to make money. There have been a lot of breeds that have gone through bad reputations that I can recall, and I've not been paying real attention to dog information very long. And God knows if someone gets a puppy mill pup that poor thing is working from a negative to begin with.

A very sad story about a baby and a JRT it was on the news tonight (Central News) A 1 week old baby was killed by the familys JRT how ever the PDSA said no baby or child should ever be left with young babys/children sadly the dog was put done too even though it was out of character for this dog! I wonder what on earth had gone wrong?? I feel I had to post this if it's in the wrong section of the forum then I apologise! I was very shocked/saddened when I saw the news bulletin.

Yes, that is a truely tragic story BB.

BBC News - Dog maul death: Week-old boy killed by family pet

It seems it was a single bite from what I have seen in different reports. Truely terrible for the family. And very saddly in most situations it's completely aviodable.

I don't like to judge others because you never fully know the circumstances in which it has happened.
