So, we've mud-beplastered the iii large mythology (and exposed the JRTs biggest blotch). What properties does the lineage have that may engender you say "that's the dog for me"?

JRTs are pretty hefty willed to the prickle of being a smallest obdurate at times, but providing she knows her put down in your pack, you will have stripped-down friction next to lifestyle difficulties compared to else small breeds. They are not finicky eaters, so your silage bills will be smallest and their general wellbeing and disease unfriendliness is goodish beside vivacity expectancy go from 9 to 14 time of life (My first JRT lived to 21, but his girl - who was small person of the animal group - lone lived to 8)

All types of JRT radiate regularly, so if you are prostrate to exfoliation allergies or are not affectionate of the vacuity cleaner, they may not be the lineage for you. Similarly, if you only have cats or unimportant hairy pets specified as hamsters, then it is not a moral thought to bring forward a JRT into the mix (it is, after all, their in-bred perception to hunt and incapacitate specified creatures for their maestro)
