The Jack Chi is a small-sized dog bred from the Jack Russell Terrier and the Chihuahua. They are somewhat delicately built and do better in homes without children, otherwise, it’s best if the kids are older and understand how appropriately handle a pet. They love attention, are usually eager to please, like to play and will be happy to take frequent walks to burn off all the energy they are sure to possess. If trained patiently and diligently (and training is not for the faint hearted) as well as kept healthy, the possibility of their destructive behavior can be prevented. They can resist their prey drive and desire for dominance if they are brought up with other pets from a young age. For active people who live in small apartments, they are great dogs but will likely shed quite a bit.
