Jack Russell – Lennox Head

Ellie, our 2 year old Jack Russell, free to a good home. Ellie is a sweetie, but she doesn't cope well with stress, or with other dogs. Due to Ellie bullying our other dog, we have decided to rehome her. We are looking for someone living a quiet life who can give Ellie lots of love and pats. Ideally it would be someone who works from home or is retired, and doesn't have any young kids or pets at home. Ellie is my daughter's dog, and she is really sad to see her go. To make this less painful, we're hoping to find someone to adopt Ellie who will send us photos or let us meet up with Ellie from time to time. Ellie is 2 years old, vaccinated, desexed, microchipped, and free. If you or someone you know might be the perfect fit for Ellie, please reach out. There's no rush. We're happy to wait to find her someone who can give her the calm life she needs and will love her forever.

The Ultimate Jack Russell Guide

About Jack Russell

The charming Jack Russell Terrier looks like a small stuffed animal that has come to life, but it surprises many with its tireless and confident nature. This working dog packs a lot of personality into its compact body, making it one of the most sought-after breeds all over the world.

Grooming

Grooming

The Jack Russell Terrier comes in two primary coat types: smooth and rough. Both types have a coarse double coat that is low maintenance. While this dog sheds heavily, once-a-week brushing is enough.

Origins

This purebred takes its name from Reverend John “Jack” Russell, a passionate fox hunter who developed hunting dogs in the 1800s in England. His purpose was to create a working canine that would hunt with hounds, thus, the name “Jack Russell Terrier.”

When Russell passed away, the breed evolved and had longer legs than the original. The new breed became known as the “Parson Russell Terrier,” with “Parson” being another word for “reverend.”

Because of the variance in leg lengths, today, there are two separate breeds: Jack Russell Terrier and Parson Russell Terrier.

 

Key Characteristics Of Jack Russells

Are Jack Russells Family-Friendly?

Yes, they are. When properly socialised and trained, Jack Russell Terriers are one of the most loving and affectionate dogs. They are loyal to their humans and do well with babies and children.

It is important, however, to always supervise a child when they are interacting with their dog. Additionally, a kid should be taught and reminded how to approach and touch this breed.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Jack Russells may suffer from:

Legg-Calve-Perthes disease

A disorder of the hip joint where the head of the femur bone degenerates, leading to pain and lameness.

Patellar luxation

A condition where the kneecap dislocates or moves out of its normal location within the knee joint.

Lens luxation

A condition where the lens of the eye becomes dislocated from its normal position, either falling forward into the anterior chamber or backward into the vitreous body.

Deafness

Glaucoma

Arthritis

Hypothyroidism

Nature / Temperament

Fearless, smart, stubborn, athletic, vocal and energetic

Suitable Environment

The Jack Russell Terrier thrives indoors. However, it is not suited for apartment living as it has an urge to explore. This breed is much better in a house with a large, fenced yard where it can have enough space to play and burn off some energy.

Bear in mind that this breed has the ability to dig, climb and jump, which is why an underground electronic fence will not do. When your dog is spending time in your yard, it is recommended that you supervise it or keep it on a leash.

Other Considerations

  1. The Jack Russell can be vocal, so it does not suit apartment life well. However, it is vigilant, making it a wonderful watchdog.
  2. Jack Russells are capable of jumping more than five feet high.
  3. While friendly towards humans, Jack Russells can be aggressive towards animals that resemble prey, unless properly socialised and trained.

How can I take good care of my Jack Russell?

Nutrition

It is recommended that Jack Russell Terrier puppies aged eight to 12 weeks old are fed three to four times a day. Raw, natural food or a premium dry kibble is advisable.

Be sure that meat from a named protein source is the main ingredient and that the food has minimal additives or chemicals.

For dogs six months and older, about two meals a day is sufficient. The suggested daily amount is 1.25 to 1.75 cups of high-quality dog food per day.

Avoid giving your Dog human food and table scraps. Also, make sure to give them plenty of clean and fresh water.

Grooming

Smooth-coated Jack Russell Terriers only need to be brushed a few times each week and bathed with quality dog shampoo every four to six weeks. Meanwhile, rough-coated breeds need a little more brushing a week and should be stripped once or twice a year.

Exercise

This small dog has a high energy level and needs plenty of exercise to be happy and healthy. Active both indoors and outdoors, the Jack Russell Terrier requires 30 to 45 minutes of exercise daily.

A short walk around the block is not enough – this dog loves to run and jump!

You can play fetch with your dog, have it chase a ball, or take it hiking. Just be sure to always walk your pooch on a leash to prevent it from getting lost.

Training

Being an incredibly intelligent dog, the Jack Russell Terrier can be trained as early as when you bring it home. This is usually when it is around eight weeks old. Because of its independent nature, however, it can be quite challenging to train.

To make it respond positively to training, offer the right mix of mental and physical stimulation. Keep the sessions short and use positive reinforcement. Be firm and confident so that your dog will oblige. Finally, make training a routine as this breed does best with structure.

Be sure to consult an expert if you’d like to learn about the breed’s care and requirements.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Jack Russell Questions

This small dog has almond-shaped eyes, a tapered muzzle and V-shaped ears. Its body is compact and muscular, and its tail is erect and straight.

Its coat is mostly white in colour with patches of brown, black, or tan on different parts of the face and body.

Regardless of its coat type, the Jack Russell tends to shed a lot all year round. The shedding can become worse during the spring and autumn seasons.

One way to greatly reduce the shedding is by brushing your dog’s coat regularly.

A Jack Russell typically costs between AUD $1,200 and $3,000. To ensure that you are getting healthy and happy dog, we recommended that you purchase from a registered breeder.
