I grew up with JRTs at home and I really have a fondness for terriers for some reason. I couldn’t add one to my pack at the time but I had met two Jacks that I really liked, especially the sire, Bob, and didn’t want to pass up the opportunity. So I asked my parents if they would keep one for me and fortunately, my dad agreed. I had to pick at 2 days old because I wanted to keep her tail and I chose her because she had a marking on her ear just like Kate.
I’ve done some training on Einie in agility and disc and am pleased with her progress. I really like her personality and so far she is a fun and willing to please, dog to train. Well, for a Terrier. 😉 She’s also had some flyball lessons with friends and done well in new environments with strange people.
In 2015 and 2017 Ping had a litter with a Border Jack named Traffic. Then in 2019 a litter with a BC, Tommy. I had the joy of raising 12 awesome, little JRT mixes. All 12 puppies have wonderful homes and I look forward to watching them grow up! She is spayed now, and while I’m sad it never worked out for me to keep one forever, I love each of those pups dearly.
