Facts and tips on a boisterous, high-energy breed
Sure, the Jack Russell dog Eddie on Frasier looks lovable on TV, but would he fit into any other family just as well? What About Jack Russell Terriers? presents realistic, honest answers to important questions concerning this breed's behavior, health and genetics, diet, development, and much more. Before bringing that cute puppy home, this guide explains how much Jack Russells cost and how much exercise and training they require, reveals how the breed behaves with children, and helps readers determine a prospective puppy's temperament. Providing easy lookup of topics and information expressed in everyday language (and avoiding dog jargon), this book answers the most frequently asked questions of owners, veterinarians, breeders, and trainers about these feisty, energetic dogs.
