JRT FAQs

Do you breed short or long legged JRT?

Jack Russells should neither be short nor long legged. The breed standards calls for 50/50 leg and body. We breed every litter with the intention to keep a show/breeding prospect so every litter is carefully bred to meet the ANKC breed standard. (Please see "JRT breed standard" page.)

What is the difference between the three coat types? 

 

Smooth coat - A coat that does not have trace hair on the head, face, legs or body. The coat should not be sparse or soft - it should provide protection from the elements.

 

Broken coat - A coat the is very similar to a smooth coat but has trace hair on the head, face, legs or body. A broken coat should not be soft - it should be harsh to provide protection from the elements.

Rough coat - A coat that has excess trace hair on the head, face, legs or body. The hair is longer than on a smooth or broken coat. A rough coat should not be soft or wooly - it should be harsh to provide protection from the elements.
