Questions & Answers
Just browse through the pups on the site, maybe with attention toward San Francisco Jack Russell Terrier puppies for sale. When one tugs at your heartstrings, contact the breeder. All of the San Francisco Jack Russell Terrier breeders in our network are happy to answer questions. Then talk about transportation and before you know it that pup will be yours!
Yes. Jack Russells love physical and mental stimulation (a lot of it!), so the activity a full family provides is ideal. But you might keep in mind that while a high-energy Jack Russell makes an excellent play pal for older children, you should exercise caution with toddlers, as an on-the-go Jack Russell can show a lack of patience with little ones.
Purebreds, like the Jack Russell Terriers for sale in San Francisco, descend from one line that's been bred to specific standards over generations. You can usually predict the behavioral and physical characteristics of a purebred. Mixed breeds, sometimes called "mutts" (and we love mutts!), are dogs that have two or more breeds in their ancestry, and so are less predictable.
No. Any San Francisco Jack Russell Terrier for sale through Uptown is a purebred. Designer dogs, also called hybrids, come from two different purebreds. So, for example, if you stir up a little romance between a Jack Russell and a Border Collie you get a Border Jack. Introduce a Jack Russell to a Pug and they'll give you a Jug. There are so many wonderful combos!
Intelligent, yes, highly. Easy to train? Not so much. The big brains of little Jack Russell Terrier puppies in San Francisco and beyond give them independent streaks that will likely come out during training. As some of the top Jack Russell Terrier breeders San Francisco has will advise, keeping the training sessions short will yield the best results.
Any of the Jack Russell Terrier puppies for sale San Francisco breeders have get to be between about 13 and 17 pounds. They usually stand between 10 to 15 inches tall. You can expect a Jack Russell to reach near full-size between six and eight months, with a bit of bulking up until their first birthday. When a Jack Russell is longer than it is tall it’s called a Shorty Jack.
No. And we would dissuade you from seeking extreme bargains. The "cheapest" pups almost certainly come from backyard breeders or puppy mills and are prone to behavioral and health issues that could cost with veterinary bills later. The Jack Russell Terrier breeders in San Francisco and elsewhere in our network set fair prices for the valuable work they do.
Unlike puppy mills, large-scale operations that put profit over care, a backyard breeder is an amateur who haphazardly breeds dogs. Even if they have good intentions they contribute to the problems of overpopulation and health issues. Rest assured that any Jack Russell Terrier puppies San Francisco breeders and companies feature with us don't come from these folks!
That's possible. And we're not anti-shelter, applauding the work reputable shelters do. Just bear in mind that any Jack Russell Terrier San Francisco shelters offer may have come from a puppy mill or backyard breeder. We offer something different, a safer and more secure way to ensure that you bring a healthy and happy pup into your home.
Any Jack Russell Terrier for sale San Francisco breeders offer today owes its heritage to a fateful 19th-century meeting between a student in Oxford, England and his milkman. So the story goes, student John "Jack" Russell bought the milkman's English White Terrier, from which he would create a breed to help him on fox hunts.
