Mixed breed dogs can be the most loyal & affectionate companions. It is important to understand all breeds in your dog’s mix. A dog’s ancestry can influence their characteristics, size & behavioral traits.
The Jack Russell mix can come in a variety of coats.
The Jack Russell breed colors are predominately white in coloration with black and/or tan markings. Patches of color often appear on the main body, head & tail. More than 50% of their body should be colored white. With a mix it can be a variety of different colors.
Daily brushing is recommended to maintain a healthy coat and avoid any matting.
Knowing the lineage of all of the breeds in the Jack Russell mix is very helpful when determining any health concerns. All mixed breed dogs have a better chance of having less health concerns because of their genetic diversity.
The Jack Russell mix can have multiple purebred or mixed breed lineage. One way to determine the ancestry of your mixed breed is through a DNA test. Though DNA testing has become more readily available, it is still met with much skepticism on its accuracy.
