Requirements for owing Jack Russell Terriers and Rat Terriers

There are a few requirements to owning Jack Russell Terriers and Rat Terriers.

You must be smarter than they are.

You must protect any small squealing things in the immediate area including human children.

You must never assume anything or trust them completely.

You must be willing to be bruised, scratched and bitten.

You must EXERCISE them A LOT.

And you must be willing to accept unconditional love for a long canine lifetime because they don’t conveniently die at 8 years of age.  You are making a commitment of at least 15 years if you’re lucky.

I have found it well worth my time and effort but you must be prepared for the worst…and the best of times.
