A brief presentation of the Jackweiler

The Jackweiler dog is a new breed of specific cross between a Jack Russell Terrier and a Rottweiler. They are loyal, intelligent dogs with varied appearances and personalities. These dogs are not suited to apartment living and, depending on their coat, do not require much exercise in hot weather. They have an average lifespan of around 8 to 16 years and are generally very healthy pets. This breed has no particular maintenance requirements and should get on well with other pets as long as they are properly socialized when young.

History of the Jackweiler

The Jackweiler is one of the many new hybrid dogs that have recently gained in popularity. Little is known about the origins of these breeds, so we need to consider the history of the parent dogs. This particular breed is made up of a Jack Russell Terrier and a Rottweiler.

 

        

A little of the Jack Russell Terrier

        
The history of the Jack Russell Terrier begins in the 1800s in Devonshire, England. The breed was created by a man named Jack Russell, who was a student at Oxford University. One day, while on campus, he came across a small Terrier dog, fell in love with it and adopted it. The dog's ancestry is thought to be a mix of a Black-and-Tan Terrier and a Fox Terrier. Jack Russell then chose to breed his dog into a new type of dog that would be small enough to enter fox dens but could also follow his hunting dogs. This ultimately created the Jack Russell Terrier, which is considered a mix of Fox Terriers and Beagles. The appearance of these dogs could vary, as Russell valued the fearless but non-killing temperament of his dogs over appearance. Mr. Russell eventually passed away, but this new breed of dog survived. They quickly gained popularity among sportsmen, who may have crossed them with Dachshunds, Corgis and other types of Terriers, which also led to a variety of sizes and appearances. Because of this great variety, the breed was not accepted into the American Kennel Club until 1997.

A little of the Rottweiler

Rottweilers as a breed don't have a very definite history, but they are thought to be descended from Bouvier dogs. These dogs were used many centuries ago to move livestock with the Romans. They also accompanied the Romans in their quest to conquer Europe, managing the large stocks needed to transport goods and protect soldiers at night. A site with ancient Roman baths was ordered to be replaced by a Christian church by a local ruler in 700 AD. An excavation took place and it was here that tiles from the ancient baths were discovered. The site was named "das Rote Wil", or "the red tiles". The name was later changed to Rottweil, and was a place that was generally occupied by breeders and butchers. These new settlers brought their dogs with them, which is why they were called butcher's dogs or Rottweiler Metzgerhund. Breed numbers declined in the mid-1800s throughout the Industrial Revolution, due to a dying need for Bouvier dogs. These dogs then gained popularity as police dogs in the early 20th century.

Appearance of the Jackweiler

The physical appearance of these dogs varies from individual to individual, as some dogs may adopt different characteristics from each breed. They may develop certain traits of the Jack Russell Terrier, which is a small but very athletic dog. They have flat skulls and tapered ears that fold forward and are V-shaped, with a stop that is not abrupt but always defined. They have almond-shaped eyes that will be dark in color and a scissor bite. Their chests are small and their front legs long and straight. Their muscular hindquarters are strong and end in a high-set tail. Rottweilers are large, powerful dogs with strong bodies and big heads. Overall, they are a little longer than they are tall, and even have back lines. Their ears will be triangular and pendulous, and the nose, lips and inside of the mouth will be black. The deep-set eyes will be dark brown and almond-shaped. They also have scissor-jointed teeth but tails that are generally docked.

Temperament of the Jackweiler

The exact temperament can also be altered depending on which parent the offspring most resembles. When you meet a Jack Russell Terrier, you'll certainly notice its enthusiastic nature. They're lively and highly intelligent, but also quite cheeky and mischievous. But this doesn't stop them from becoming great pets who excel in competition. They are easy to train and also make excellent pets. Alternatively, the Rottweiler is a calmer, more loyal breed of dog. Although they are often described as vicious and dangerous, this is not true, as they will only act this way if they have to. These dogs are fearless and will protect their families, making them excellent guard and protection dogs. They are friendly to strangers but can take time to get used to them. This breed can be a little more difficult to train. All dog breeds need to be sufficiently socialized and introduced to new people, pets and environment as a puppy in order to raise a calm, respectful animal.

Needs and activities of the Jackweiler

The activity needs of this hybrid dog will fall somewhere between those of the Jack Russell Terrier and the Rottweiler. Jack Russell Terriers are very energetic and will certainly need a large, securely fenced yard. These dogs have an immense amount of energy for their size, and if they don't get enough exercise, they could become destructive. Don't forget to exercise your dog's mind as well as his body. Rottweilers can be prone to heat stroke, so don't over-exercise your Jackweiler in the warmer months if they have this parent's dark coat.

Maintenance of the Jackweiler

Maintenance needs will be specific to each dog's coat type. If the coat is similar to that of either type of Jack Russell Terrier, the coat should be brushed weekly. If they are brushed regularly, they won't need to be bathed very often. Broken coats should be stripped about twice a year. Rottweilers will also need weekly brushing, the frequency of which should increase during the moulting season, which takes place twice a year. Overall maintenance includes teeth brushing, which should be carried out every day or at least two or three times a week. Your dog's nails should be trimmed every month or two, but this may be sooner or later depending on how quickly they wear down naturally. You should clean your dog's ears every week to prevent ear infections. Do this once a week using a damp cotton ball, and watch for any signs of existing infection.
