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 Wisconsin?

Wisconsin is a beautiful place to live, and overall a safe and healthy place for pets. The state polls pretty differently across different studies, mostly because it has room for improvement in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at a few leading studies to get a clearer picture of Wisconsin's pet scene.


Pawsafe is an animal advocacy group that helps pet-lovers evaluate the best places to live. They released a study ranking every state by several pet-safety and pet-friendly factors, including pet-friendly services and accommodations, animal cruelty laws, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks. 


In their study, Wisconsin is ranked as the 31st most pet-friendly state. The state did not score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another site that ranks states according to various safety measures was a bit more positive toward Wisconsin, ranking the state as the 19th most pet-friendly state in the country.


Between these two leading studies, Wisconsin ranks right around the middle of the pack, with strengths and weaknesses for its puppy population. 

Are cities in Wisconsin pet-friendly?

Cities can score quite differently from their parent state in pet-friendly rankings. Wallethub released a thorough study of the 100 largest cities in the country and ranked them by animal-friendly factors.

Madison

Madison is the largest city in Wisconsin, with a population of around a quarter million. In the Wallethub study, Madison ranked 26th out of 100 cities. Way to go, Madison! The city is a little pricier for pet owners than others, ranking 52nd in Pet Budget, but ranked higher at 38th in pet health and wellness, and 30th in outdoor pet-friendliness.  


In an extensive Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, Madison ranked as the 7th best city for dog parks, with 3.9 dog parks per 100,000 people.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Wisconsin

Wisconsin saved 56,911 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 1,704 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-three out of 74 of the animal shelters within Wisconsin are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is average, but the state has an above-average save rate of 88%. This is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state, but it’s very close! We hope to see them change those last two percentage points soon.
