Jack Russell Terrier Characteristics

The Jack Russell Terrier, made famous by the old children’s show “Wishbone,” was bred as a highly intelligent hunting companion, but can also make a great house pet with patience and early socialization. These dogs can be a handful! But they’re so much fun. Make sure you give your Jack Russell plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to ensure consistent good behavior. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy
  • Size
  • Trainability
The Jack Russell terrier was designed nearly 200 years ago in England by a clergy member named Parson John Russell (who often went by "Jack"). Today's Jack Russell Terrier is an athletic, intelligent hunting dog that is happily trained, but needs consistent mental stimulation to truly thrive. And they’ll make sure you know! 
 
Standing between 10-15 inches tall and weighing between 13-17 pounds, the Jack Russell Terrier is on the smaller end of the well-known hunting dogs. But don't let their small size fool you into believing these dogs are made as apartment companions; the Jack Russell requires lots of exercise and mental stimulation, and we recommend a full-sized house and yard for your pup to play. Jack Russells have three different coat types, but all are white with black or brown markings. 
 
Like many terriers, the Jack Russell is prone to barking, chewing, and digging. But not to worry – these tendencies can all the remedied with early obedience training. If you're rescuing a Jack Russell, try training them to dig in a specific safe location instead of trying to train them out of digging altogether.  
 
Like many small dogs, Jack Russells may be at risk for dental issues. 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 Russell to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early and your pup is healthy and safe.
 

How dog-friendly is Nebraska?

While some studies are inconsistent, Nebraska generally ranks very well for pet-friendliness. It’s a great place to own a dog and has some great laws protecting animals. 


We use two primary studies to track a state’s friendliness for pets. One ranks Nebraska in the top ten, and the other in the top 25. 


The first study comes from an animal advocacy group, Pawsafe. They ranked Nebraska 9th compared to all 50 states, according to factors like pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. The state also scored well in its report for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. They ranked Nebraska as the 23rd most pet-friendly state in the country. Still in the top half, but not quite top ten.


However, if we combine the two studies, Nebraska still ranks at the front of the list!

Are cities in Nebraska pet-friendly?

To track the best cities, the review site Wallethub ranked the top 100 biggest cities in the U.S. for pet-friendly factors. Here’s how Nebraska stacked up. 

Omaha

Omaha is Nebraska’s largest city, with a population of nearly half a million. Wallethub ranked Omaha as 24th of the largest 100 cities. Pretty great! 


A couple of the most popular dog-friendly destinations in Omaha are the Big Papio Trail and the Keystone Trail.

Lincoln

The city survey ranked Lincoln as 21st overall, coming in 4th for pet budget, 67th for pet health and wellness, and 69th for outdoor pet-friendliness. Lincoln also made it onto a list from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) that puts together the best cities for dog parks. Lincoln ranked 34th out of the top 100 cities, with 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Nebraska

Nebraska saved 24,545 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 2,378 animals were killed over this same period. 


Fourteen out of 52 of the animal shelters within Nebraska are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has an average save rate of 82%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Just a little bit of improvement will help push Nebraska into the right zone.
