Jack Russell Personality Traits
Loyal and happy-go-lucky, the Jack Russell dog is a popular breed, loved for its fearless and feisty attitude. Generally good natured, this breed of dog is courageous and has a stubborn streak a mile long. Owners are attracted to this breed because they are small and conveniently sized, but they do require training and a firm owner who is willing to discipline them. Left to its own devices, a mischievous Jack Russell will burrow in the garden if not mentally and physically stimulated. They are scent dogs and can jump up to five times their height. This is a reflection of their hunting background but as a result, this dog can be quite a handful and isn’t well suited to a novice owner.
