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 Minnesota?

Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!


We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.


The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.


Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively. 


Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.

Even though Minneapolis and St. Paul are known as the Twin Cities, they rank differently in terms of pet-friendliness. St. Paul also ranked well, but just a few spots lower than Minneapolis at the 33rd spot for overall pet-friendliness.
