Jack Russell Terriers are British

There are so many reasons to love Jack Russell Terriers; they have big hearts and a wide set of skills.

Jack Russells were traditionally used as fox hunting dogs, but are now better known as fantastic family pups. Mixed breed Jack Russells harbor these same attributes, plus more. They are some of the most playful pooches, sweetest snugglers, and all around enjoyable animals to have in your home.

Let us know what you think about these cute canines in the comments below!

1. Jack Russell + Australian Terrier (Rustralian Terrier)

These dogs are some of the kindest; despite their little bodies, they have incredibly big hearts. They generally have pretty scruffy fur with smooth, floppy ears and a patterned coat.

2. Jack Russell + Pug (Jug)

This sweet pup has the adorable squished face of a Pug with the bouncy personality of a Jack Russell. These mixes are fond of running, digging, and all things playful.

3. Jack Russell + Beagle (Jack-A-Bee)

This adorable mix has the body structure of a Jack Russell and the pattern of a Beagle. Jack-A-Bees are well known for being sweet, sensitive, and endearing dogs.

3. Jack Russell + Boston Terrier (Bo-Jack)

The Bo-Jack is praised for being good-tempered, loving, and very intelligent with a playful and energetic side.

4. Jack Russell + Border Collie (Border Jack)

Border Jacks are incredibly agile, and usually quite adept at sports. Border Jacks are among the top picks for dog sports, and are quick learners. Given that both the parents breeds have innate agility and athleticism, these pups are best suited for active households with big yards.

5. Jack Russell + Cairn Terrier (Jacairn)

Jacarin dogs are a perfect pet for any dog owner because they are a low maintenance breed. They are intelligent, obedient, and active.

6. Jack Russell + Chihuahua (Jack Chi)

One of the most admirable qualities about Jack Chis is that they are exceptionally good with kids. These energetic pups are sometimes described as being a “big dog trapped in a little body”, due to their large presences and small frames.

7. Jack Russell + Cocker Spaniel (Cocker Jack)

This sweet pooch has the boldness of the Jack Russell, combined with the more reserved nature of the Cocker Spaniel, resulting in a pooch that’s a perfect, balanced blend of puppy attributes.

These mixes are quite loyal and loving, and are particularly devoted to their human companions.

8. Jack Russell + Dachshund (Jackshund)

The combination of two very different dogs ultimately results in one of the most affectionate and fun-loving pups out there. Though each pup will have its own personality, Jackshunds are generally well behaved when they are told to be, and energetic when allowed.

9. Jack Russell + French Bulldog (French Bull Jack)

The French Bull Jack is considered one of the most appealing pups due to the sturdy frame of the French Bulldog combined with the outgoing personality of the Terrier. The Bull Jack is a very energetic breed and needs lots of space to run and play!

10. Jack Russell + Golden Retriever (Golden Jack Retriever)

Golden Jack Retrievers embody characteristics of both types of dogs: they are energetic, goofy, and lovers of water. These are great dogs for active folks looking for good exercise buddies.

11. Jack Russell + German Shepherd

The Jack Russell and German Shepherd mix is not a very common pooch, but they sure do look cute!

12. Jack Russell + Pomeranian (Jack-A-Ranian/Jack-Pom)

The Jack-Pom is great for families who aren’t always active because these pups are great at entertaining themselves! These dogs are sweet, sensitive, playful, mild-mannered, and intelligent. They’re definitely a great Pomeranian mix, taking the fluff of a Pom and combining it with the energy of a Jack Russell!

13. Jack Russell + Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie Jack)

This gorgeous Terrier mix looks a like like a Yorkie, but fortunately, they’ve got both characteristics. These pups are loyal, energetic, and they go with the flow.

14. Jack Russell + Siberian Husky (Husky Jack)

The Husky Jack has the body of the Terrier and the complexion of a Husky. As a result of the two parent dogs, these pooches are very energetic and need a lot of space to run and play.

15. Jack Russell + Rottweiler (Jackweiler)

source: Pinterest

Although Jackweilers come in different pattern and color varieties, across the board they are all some of the most loyal dogs in the world. They are affectionate, dependable, and goofy.

16. Jack Russell + Poodle (Jack-A-Poo)

The Jack-A-Poo is a playful dog and is great for families. These sweet pooches are affectionate, caring, playful, and cuddly, and are a non-shedding dog–so, great for those with allergies!

17. Russell + Papillon (Papijack)

The Papijack pooch is the mastermind of creativity; these pups are always able to find something to do. They need a lot of exercise and attention, and are quite expressive and playful.

18. Jack Russell + Corgi (Cojack)

The Cojack is half Pembroke Corgi, and is a one of a kind pooch. They have the tail and face of a Corgi, with the pattern and playfulness of a Terrier.

I lost my jack chi 1 1/2 yes ago. She was 16. I am interested in getting a jack-a-poo. Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Camille Dreiling

I have a Pug/ Jack Russell mix that’s 9mos old named Max who is just the best. He’s so much fun and smart too. He loves to play fetch with the balls in the back yard or go for long walks. He learned to sit and stay really fast and being house broke didn’t seem like it took any time too. He’s just so quick at learning. He’s the best thing I ever did!

Sonny Ells

My first pup was a Lhasa also/Jack Russell mix. He was the best dog! People were always stopping to ask me what kind of dog he was, he was so adorable! He passed away in my arms at 16.5 years old.

Ben Team

Hey, Sonny. Sorry to hear he passed, but we’re glad you got to spend so many years with him!

Bella's momma

I have a 5 week old jackweiler, she’s so sweet and adorable, playful and loves naps and adores playing in grass. So precious.

Why glorify mutts? This is not helping to better pure bred dogs!!!

Ben Team

Simply put, we think there’s plenty of room in the world for purebred doggos and pups of mixed ancestry!

I have a Dachshund, Chihuahua & Jack Russell mixed puppy. He’s four months old and the biggest problem i have with him is when playing he tends to bite. I haven’t quite figured out how to stop that yet. The only other thing is he gets VERY excited at company but he just never calms down ANY the whole time they are here. Any suggestions?

Ben Team

Hey there, Tina.
We have just the article for you: Help! My Puppy Keeps Biting Me!
Best of luck!

Bob P.

We have a Jack Russell / Rat Terrier mix. Jack-rat. He is amazing! Very loyal, fearless, loves to play fetch (with a wiffle ball), lap dog. Occasionally he is jealous of other dogs that we give attention to however.

Michelle Meachum

Yes. A Jack Russell mix with picanegse a Jack pic. Haha. I have a 11 year old Jack Pick. Very loyal, playful, loves to snuggle an amazing dog. And he is a little goofy very sweet little boy stays between 25 to 30 pounds.


Love my Jack Russell Shitzu mix! Super smart, very cuddly, and while she is pretty active, she is also big on naps! And with her big Shitzu eyes makes everyone think she is a puppy.

Her mix breed name?

Ben Team

That’s pretty clever, KD. Thanks for sharing!

Karen Clere

I have a jack russell bichon mix


We’ve got a Jack Russell mix that we rescued from the RSPCA. They couldn’t help us much with his ancestry – he’s basically the spitting image of a Jack-Chi but he’s A LOT bigger than either a Jack Russell or a Chihuahua. Any ideas?

Ben Team

Hey, James.
There’s not much we can tell without seeing a photo. And even then, appearances can be very deceptive.
The only way to know for sure is to use a canine DNA test. Check out our review of the Embark Dog DNA test — it may be very helpful in your situation.
Best of luck!


Jack Russell and shitzu. Are so cute.

Anneke Slager

Hi, we are looking for a small dog, no puppy, but a bit older.

Looking forward to hear from you,
Anneke Slager

Anneke Slager

Just realized that you are in America, and we are in New Zealand, sorry

Sandra Heeter

We just adopted a 2 year old so sweet dog who is a chihuahua and I’m sure, Jack Russell Terrier mix as he jumps straight up! We adopted him from the Mitchell Mill Animal Hospital Rescue in Raleigh, NC. He had to have one eye removed as it had glaucoma and bulbous and blue. He just had his stitches removed today! He will be trained to be a therapy dog and will be super fabulous. He’s an 8 pounders with a constantly wagging tail! His name is Toby and he gets along with all of our cats, dogs and all people!

Lynn Abrams

I would love to come see your dogs. I am in the market for one at this time. You can reach me at 503-632-6210. I live in Beavercreek a small town outside of Oregon City, OR

Ben Team

Hey, Deanna.
Thanks for reading, but we don’t sell dogs — we only provide information about these cuties!
Just do a Google search in your area, and you should find plenty of breeders.
Best of luck!


I’d like info on the jack Russell English pointer mixed breed. Ours is sweet to children and they are the only distraction strong enough to detain her from a running streak, lovable, a ratter, and smart but does not tolerate other dogs (except the minpin mix we had before she arrived and it took a full 3 weeks for them to live socially next to one another!) She weighs 26# is white with a black face mask and 3 huge black spots on her coat. She will point and is a jumper. We adopted her at age 6 where we discovered the 4″ vertical scar under her chin was from tangling with a raccoon whom she subdued. She is relatively quiet but will let loose a deep baritone bark if instigated by her housemate barking. Please tell me which traits are the jack and which the pointer. Also any other info suggestions etc welcome.

Jon Nagle

Trying to figure out what kind of mix our Walker is. We got him as a rescue. He’s white with brindle

Carol Brooks

Looking to buy a Cojack puppy preferably tri-color, either sex. See e-mail above.

Phyllis Meyer

We’re would I go to get in contact with some one to get one of these dogs? I’m interested in either a jack-A-Poo, or a Jackshund?

Ben Team

Hey, Phyllis. They certainly are cute, aren’t they!
But these puppers aren’t for sale — we just wanted to share some photos and info about them.

Just do a Google search in your area and you should be able to find plenty of available pooches.
Best of luck!


I have an Eski-Jack or like my sister likes to joke a Jack- Spitz. An Eskimo Spitz mixed with a Jack Russell. She is very sweet, fun loving, and energetic. She can have a barking issue sometimes. I’d love more info on her breed.

Johnny Phillips

My Jack Russel Terrier Maggie was 16 years old when she passed. I had Maggie as a companion since she was 2 mo old. It’s been tough. After looking at this website I think I am ready to find a new canine companion.

Elise Dennis

We have a Jack Russell Australian Cattle Dog (blue heeler) mix, which we’re calling a “Cattle-ack”. We would love more information about the mix, but so far haven’t found a lot. It’s an interesting mix as far as we can tell.


Awesome, all these mixtures of this wonderful Jack Russel Terrier Dog breed. It is unimaginable what possibilities arise when mixing this wonderful dog breed with the most diverse breeds.
