  • The Jack-Rat Terrier, also known as a Jersey Terrier, comes from crossbreeding the Jack Russell Terrier and the Rat Terrier. This high energy hybrid is known for being confident, keen, and feisty. The Jack-Rat Terrier is a fearless dog that packs a lot of personality in such a small body. Their contagious energy makes them a great dog for a family with kids and other active pets. They do bond closely with their family, so it is important to socialize them from a young age with people and other pets outside of the household. The Jack-Rat Terrier requires a lot of daily activity to keep them both mentally and physically stimulated to prevent them from becoming bored. A well-trained and socialized Jack-Rat Terrier, makes for a fun and loyal friend for life.
