Best friend for a Jack Russell mix

June 1st, 2011, 07:26 PM
I have heard ALL sorts of things from different people of what not to get and what to get for a second dog when i currently own a 3 y/o Jack Russell mix male neutered.... Kennel Trained for when we are at work (no more than 4 hours at a time)

He is hyper like a P.B. Jack Russell.... but a bit taller and skinnier. ANYWAY

i have had people tell me to get another Jack Russell... people tell me not to get another Jack Russell... people tell me to get a female people tell me to get a male.... some say a dog smaller so it doesnt threaten the "Full of em self" JAck Russell......some say get a bigger dog so it can hold its own....

Im beginning to think its all in how you train them...

does anyone else have experience owing a Jack Russell along with other dogs and if so what type of dog and how was the experience.

I find the "Golden" tolerates all kinds of attitudes. Lovely temperment. My neighbour had an older lab x border collie was great with her Jack.

i have heard that they are very easy tempered dogs and will happily take a little abuse from more hyper dogs and not bat an eyelash... thanks for the input!!!
