Questions & Answers
If the legend is true, their story began when a milkman sold his English White Terrier to a student in Oxford in 19th-century England. That student, John “Jack” Russell would later become the Reverend John Russell, known as "The Sporting Parson" for his love of fox hunting. Reverend Russell created his namesake fox-hunting breed from the milkman’s pooch.

No, and we would advise you not to seek such a bargain. The "cheapest" pups are almost certainly the product of bad breeding at the hands of puppy mills or backyard breeders. The professional Jack Russell Terrier breeders Portland and elsewhere have who make it into our network provide the absolute best care and charge fair prices for their services.
Not to be confused with puppy mills, which churn out pups putting profit over care, backyard breeders are amateurs who breed dogs without the proper training or facilities for their care. Any Jack Russell Terrier puppies for sale Portland backyard breeders offer are apt to have a host of health and behavioral issues. Best to stick with the pros in our vetted coast-to-coast network!
No. Any Portland Jack Russell Terrier for sale through Uptown is a purebred, sired by two other purebred Jack Russells. A designer dog, also called a hybrid, comes from two distinct purebreds. So, for example, if you stir up some romance between a Jack Russell and a French Bulldog soon enough you'll have an adorable French Bull Jack!
As the top Portland Jack Russell Terrier breeders can tell you, if it's easy, you're in the minority. Jack Russells are highly intelligent, and grasp commands quickly. But that brainpower comes with a side of stubbornness, so you can expect some resistance. Your best bet is to keep the training sessions short and to only use positive techniques -- treats work wonders!
Should you select an energetic little Jack Russell Terrier for sale Portland breeders and businesses are offering you need to fuel their activity with protein. Many veterinarians recommend kibble with 20% fish, beef, or chicken protein, as dry food helps with dental hygiene as well. But should you go with a wet food or raw food diet just keep the protein level high.
Not so big. Whether they're male or female, Jack Russells average between 13 and 17 pounds with heights of between ten to 15 inches. You can expect them to reach near full-size between six and eight months, with some bulk filling out until they are a year old. When they're longer than they are tall they get the nickname Shorty Jack.
Maybe. And we don't speak ill of reputable shelters, applauding the work they do. But keep in mind that any of the Jack Russell Terrier puppies Portland shelters have, if they have pups, won't come with the health and behavioral information the breeders and businesses in our network provide. It just depends on the experience and level of service you want.
They're not the best. Any Jack Russell Terrier Portland breeders and companies offer will likely be a ball of energy that wants to spend time outdoors. So homes with securely fenced yards are ideal. And Jack Russells can be barkers that might disturb nearby neighbors. But if you spend lots of time outdoors with your Jack Russell, returning to an apartment can work.
