Jack Russell terrier and other animals in the house

When you decide to take a Jack Russell terrier, you struggle with the question: "How will he get along with my pets?" Perhaps you have a cat, or a parrot, maybe a hamster. After all Jack is a born hunter, whether will he hunt for the rest of the household? No need to worry. You will bring a little puppy in the house, and he will treat all its inhabitants as members of his future pack. Rather, you should be afraid that the cat, which was the only favorite of the family, will be against the new tenant. For the first time, watch closely the behavior of animals, neatly meet them only in your presence, or adult cat can hurt the puppy. Maybe then they will become the best  friends, but as you know, even friends quarrel over trifles, so be prepared if suddenly hassle will appear. 

As for birds and rodents, also explain the puppy that they are full members of the family. However, there are pitfalls. Perhaps, in your presence, Jack will pretend that the rodent does not interest him. But when you go to work, he can show the wonders of ingenuity to get the occupant of the cage. 

Once again we turn to the history and work qualities of Jack to realize that rodents, such as mice, gerbils, hamsters, rats, ferrets – this is invitation for your Jack to hunt. In the garage, the house, the yard, wherever the unsuspecting victims sheltered in a cage, Jack will have one dream: to destroy and plunder the shelter and get the prey. Therefore, put the cage in the safest place to not tempt the little hunter. 

It is possible that with the adult Jack, you decide to get a kitten. If your Jack never lived with cats, but on the street drove them to the trees, it is also necessary to be very vigilant. Remember that these terriers were bred for fox hunting. Being clever, adaptable creature, in the absence of foxes, and the cat will be good! 

Do not leave pets alone until you are sure that Jack will not cause harm to the kitten.
