Jack-A-Poo Characteristics

The Jack-A-Poo is a hybrid mix between the Jack Russell Terrier and the Toy Poodle. These dogs typically retain the best characteristics of each parent breed, resulting in a smart and loyal family companion. While they can make good hunting dogs, they're often chosen as household pets or apartment companions.

A breed with many, many names, the Jack-A-Poo is also known as the Jack-A-Doodle, Jackadoodle, Jackdoodle, Jackapoodle, Jack-A-Poo, Jackapoo, Jack-A-Poodle, Jackpoo, Poojack, and Poo-Jack. Standing anywhere between 10-16 inches and weighing between 13-25 pounds, the Jack-A-Poo is a newer breed, which means their size fluctuates more than purebred. These dogs require a moderate amount of exercise but are relatively good candidates for apartment living due to their size and low-shed coat.
 
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Jack-A-Poo was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Jack-A-Poo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Jack Russell Terrier or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. 
 
Unfortunately, many experts agree that small dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. This is likely due to the smaller skulls and jaws, which can lead to overcrowding of the teeth. This overcrowding creates more spaces where food can get trapped and bacteria can grow. Taking your Jack-A-Poo to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early.

How dog-friendly is Arizona?

In general, Arizona is a great place for dogs – with parks, plenty of dog-griendly restaurants, and great access to pet care. The one downside is that the state has a very low percentage of pet-friendy rentals available. This single factor brings their overall score down a bit.


Pawsafe put Arizona in the 46th place for pet-friendliness in their study. They noted the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 18%, which brought the overal score down. 


A similar study from Safewise puts Arizona as a more pet-friendly place, ranking the state at 27th.


Both of these studies consider a wide range of important factors for your beloved pet’s health and happiness – including pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.

How pet-friendly are Arizona’s cities?

SmartAsset reviewed the 100 largest U.S. cities to grade them for pet-friendliness.

In their study, SmartAsset named Tucson as the most pet-friendly city in the country! This is the second year in a row that the city has received such an honor.


Tucson has the fifth highest number of dog parks, vet offices and dog-friendly restaurants per 10,000 establishments. The city has 254 dog-friendly restaurants, which ranks in the top 20. There are also four dog-friendly shopping centers in the city.

A few more pet-related Arizona facts

In Arizona, 43% residents own a dog, which is above the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Phoenix, these breeds are just as popular, but people also love Pit Bulls.


The state’s total pet ownership percentage is also far above the national average with 69% of Arizona homes owning a pet. Like we said, Arizona loves its pets!

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arizona

Arizona saved 2,458 more animals in 2020 than in 2019 and 33 of the state’s 66 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is approximately 86% so they only need a small increase to meet the 90% to become a no-kill state. We hope to see this percentage go up!
