I have heard that the type of this dog is called "Jack-A-Bee" is that right?

This is my wifes dog, her name is Jakaya and we are not sure what type she is or what lines of breeds she comes from, other than she is cuter than hell!!

That's not an actual breed of dog. It sounds liek a designer mutt back yard breeder makign up a name.

The dog is adorable though, just tell people you don't know what breed she really is. Shouldn't be ashamed of that.

Based on the "name" and the appearance (Very cute btw!), it looks like she's a jack Russel/Beagle cross. (with possibly other breeds thrown in there). So she's a mutt, but be proud of your cutie pie mutt! ( lot of us here have them ;))

Jakaya is very cute and I also think a Jack Russell/Beagle cross. Where did you get her?


I wonder if the next mutt to be bred will be a Jack Russell/Boxer cross called a Jack-in-the-Box? :rolleyes:

:sorry: :offtopic:

Careful!!! You might give someone ideas.

Perhaps someone should breed Bulldogs and Shih Tzus and call them Bullshi*s. Then they can charge a gazillion dollars for them.

Kidding, of course! :crazy:

The thought of a jack russell - beagle cross scares the heck out of me!

Just the thought of trying to keep up with a dog with the energy level of a JRT and the nose of a beagle!!!

That is the funniest thing I have seen today! Thankyou for the laugh:D

I do hope no one takes it seriously of course, could you imagine some poor shihtzu trying to birth pups with bulldog heads:eek:

I'm not a fan of 'designer dogs', but you have a cute dog. I always feel sorry for the poor pups b/c its not their fault.

She is cute as a button, it does not sound like you purchased her from someone who purposely breeds designer mutts for profit and spent a ridiculously huge sums of money on her, and there is definitely no shame in having a mixed bred dog of unknown parentage these days it is far more respectable than purchasing a purposely designer bred dog and looking to call her Jack a Bee may only bring you shame instead ;)

There are a lot of people that are fooled into thinking they are getting some special breed(years ago they where given away and sold for a moderate price like 5 OR $10 as they were accidental breedings ) and will spend 800 or $900 and even 2 to 3 times that for a mixed breed pup, when they could have spent far less buying a purebred of one of those mixes from a respectable breeder that comes with papers and has a health guarantee with both parents certified as being clear from genetic diseases and an agreement if for some reason you can't keep the dog the breeder will take it back, which is something buyers of designer mutts won't recieve, so many of these mixed breds then find their ways into shelters or rescues when they outgrow their puppy cuteness or when then owners realize how much work a puppy is. The designer mutt market is adding severely to the problems of and already overpopulation of dogs where there is not enough homes for which adds to the number being euthanized each year in North America(approx 7 million cats and dogs each year) and the breeders of are not considered not much better than puppymill breeders that sell to pet stores And most responsible dog owners are aware of this and really find the designer dog market offensive and do not have respect for those that go out an specifically buy these dogs with the fancy names, calling her a Beagle and or jrt mix would bring you far more respect ( a hero for taking in an unwanted dog) than calling her a Jack a Bee ( a fool that throws away hard earned money just for a fancy name, whose ignorance and whim are adding to the number of dogs being killed in shelters everyday).

Be proud of who she is, a unknown mix :)
