      Hi Peggy,
      I am not sure from your description what the age of your Jack Chi might be. Since you have a family with kids, you need to ensure that your dog is well-socialized, particularly to your grandchildren, as a puppy and into her adolescence. Also, do not allow the kids to mistreat your dog, and teach them to approach and interact properly. Provide the dog a safe place to retreat like a kennel, crate, or a baby-gated room. Your granddaughters should stay out of her personal space when she is sleeping or eating. Train your pet Jack Chi to respond to commands like sit, lie down, come, stop, and come, and reward her good behaviors with treats.
      Good luck!

    I just met a Jack Chi out on my walk today! Fell in love! I’ve been looking for a small dog and would LOVE to find a puppy. My concern is the cost, even at a rescue. What is a typical price?

    They found my Tello among the wild dogs in the southwest of US. He has so much jack russell independence. He has taken on the role of greeter at the local dog park, allowing me to volunteer as well. He’s a hard worker and he’s dedicated to the safety of his pack, and he clearly understands every role of a traditional hunting group, as well as a family unit. This dog is incredibly intelligent, having learned 7 commands in 7 weeks, how to decide weather it’s “play” or “real,” his bolting is unmatched at the dog park, his stamina is relentless, and most importantly he has the patience and love that denotes wisdom beyond his years.

    You see one of these, and you’re ready to make the commitment, get ready to have a ranger made out of you.

    I’ve been a happy owner of one bitch for 4 years now. I’ve had her since she was 8 weeks old. She is the most loving, loyal little person. She has tons of energy and loves to play but she barks! She barks at everything!! I’m happy to put up with that for good points outweigh her bad. Being food obsessed she was very easy to train.

    Just got a 5 year old male Jack Chi and a 3 year old female Chihuahua mix from Maricopa County shelter. Tons of animals so I got free adoption. Looking forward to many years with my babies.

    Just got me one of these pups at a no kill shelter in california. Hes a bit shy now but that should all change soon. Make sure he jas lots of running room. My blue nose pit chelly has a hard time keeping up with this guy. Ive decided to name him bo short for bodacious.

      That’s awesome that you got him from a shelter! We just got a female at a local shelter. She’s 11 pounds and looks mostly chihuahua with maybe the jack Russel as the other parent my husband I have adopted a total of five. One is a retired greyhound. He loves playing with this little one. It’s so hilarious!

    • Heather says:

      Adopt one at a shelter. They’re full of them. Never buy one, too many are dying due to breeders. Goodluck!

      Where are you located? We just got a Jack Chi from a rescue (we are in CT, they sent him up from TN where there are tons of kill shelters and puppies are rescued from). Check petfinder.org, check locally and someone near you probably works with people in the south to do the same. The place we used stopped in MD, NY , PA and MASS. Good luck

      To any of you looking for a puppy: please look first at your local shelter. They have puppies sometimes, but more importantly consider an adult! We’ve adopted FIVE…..one being a retired racing greyhound and all were young adults. Well one is a hound mix who is ten! These animals are more grateful believe it or not. They will bond with you fast once they feel safe with you. You may certainly ended up with a best friend for many many years! Check out your shelter and see if you’re drawn to some body!
