When considering how to select a Jack Russell Terrier you want to take into consideration whether this is the right breed for you. Talk to people who have and appreciate the breed. Make sure that this is a good fit for your family now and for the long term. These dogs probably hopefully give you fifteen or more years of life, and you want to make sure that you're going to remain a good fit for them for that lifetime. These are very active dogs. They require, in general terms, a lot of mental and physical stimulation. They are said to be good watch dogs potentially. That could mean that they're very vocal, and that's something to take into consideration as well. Perhaps not the greatest dog for an apartment. But wonderful, affectionate, playful dogs who've gotten a lot of play in the media recently, so rather than selecting just on based upon how cute they look on TV actually consider what is the breed likely to be like, and then once you decide that this is, this is the dog for you try to work with a reputable breeder who has bred for good health and temperament, in addition to look. And if that's not for you, because that's potentially quite a bit of money you're talking about, then consider adopting a dog from a rescue. One good thing about adopting a Jack Russell, or another adult dog from a rescue, and rescues do have puppies from time to time as well, but if you adopt an adult dog you know generally what their temperament is going to be like, what their personality is going to be like, and it's not going to be a surprise as they age.
