The Minnie Jack, as a Jack Russell Terrier-Mini Pinscher mix, is a small-sized, short-haired crossbreed with an athletic, lean yet muscular body, large ears, wedge-shaped head, and a long tail that normally curves upwards. These dogs are very intelligent, but can be headstrong, even selfish at times. One thing is certain: they are not for the meek or first-time dog owner!
Minnie Jacks are assertive and nearly fearless little dogs; they will need experienced owners who will stand up to their sometimes domineering personalities. If not disciplined early and often, Minnie Jacks may develop Small Dog Syndrome, in which they jump on people and objects, growl often, and exhibit selfish behavior in general. This is best curtailed by socializing (and disciplining!) them starting at a young age.
Meanwhile, one thing is a fact: a Minnie Jack has more energy than you. Even after a full day of outdoor activity, these little spark-plugs will still be bounding around the house. And with their Pinscher genetics, they are surprisingly strong for their size...and they may be the fastest dog you've ever owned!
