Jack Russell Terrier Dogs for Sale

If you want an energetic, hardworking dog that can keep up with your active lifestyle, Jack Russell terriers might just be the breed for you. Bred for hunting, these little dogs love large, fenced-in yards where they can spend hours hunting and playing, and they do best with owners ready and willing to play fetch and take them on long walks.

An affectionate nature makes Jack Russells an excellent companion, and their keen intelligence makes them simple to train. If you’re seeking Jack Russell puppies for sale or just want to know more about the breed, read on to discover if these compact hunting dogs are right for you and your family.

Breed History

First bred in the mid-1800s by the Rev. John Russell — aka the Sporting Parson  — Jack Russell terriers were originally fox-hunting dogs due to their swift yet tough genetics. They share a common ancestry with Parson Russell terriers, though the breeds diverge wildly now that both have over 200 years of history under their belts.

Originally recognized only by the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America, this working dog only recently received recognition by the American Kennel Club. Many lovers of this small, friendly canine breed feel the AKC recognition harmed the breed due to relaxed standards, so controversy ranges even now.

Size and Health

Both male and female Jack Russell terriers weigh in at between 13 and 17 pounds. Males typically attain heights of 14 inches, while females generally grow to 13 inches tall. Though Jack Russells have compact, muscular bodies, they tend to gain weight when they don’t get enough exercise, so it’s important to spend time walking and playing with these dogs.

Lifespans for Jack Russell terriers usually run between 13 and 15 years, and most are very healthy canines, though some genetic issues exist. These potential challenges include eye problems such as glaucoma and cataracts and congenital deafness. Additionally, some experience patellar luxation — dislocated knees — a condition that doesn’t affect some dogs but requires corrective surgery in others, especially with age.

Care and Grooming

Jack Russell terriers are very energetic, and as such, they typically require about 40 minutes of exercise per day. They have a tendency to dig, so you need to watch them closely if you leave them unattended in fenced-in backyards so they don’t escape.

As for their coats, they generally boast white, cream, light brown, dark brown and even black coloration. The texture ranges from rough and scruffy to smooth and soft, but no matter the texture, these pooches only require brushing once or twice a week to ward off shedding.


Lively and active dogs, Jack Russell terriers have lots of energy to burn and love to hunt. This makes the breed a great choice for those with lifestyles that include hiking or hunting but a not-so-great choice for those who live in smaller spaces or situations where the pooch can’t get plenty of exercise.

Further, the ingrained desire to hunt makes Jack Russell terriers see other pets — including smaller cats, hamsters and even reptiles — as prey rather than pal. Their working nature, however, helps these tenacious little hunters get along well with other hunting dogs, though they may be aggressive with some smaller breeds.

Additionally, Jack Russell terriers are very vocal dogs, so they’re not ideal for apartment living, but they do make excellent watchdogs. Naturally assertive and very intelligent, these dogs sometimes bite or nip if someone pulls their tail or harasses them, so they usually do well in homes without toddlers or small children.

I had a wonderful experience with YourPuppy. Logan was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. He let me video conference with the puppy I chose to better view his normal behavior and even delivered him to my home! I couldn’t be happier with the puppy I chose. Pure bread lab, definitely bread well with good behavior. I couldn’t have asked for a better puppy or service. Thank you for making the addition to our family such a painless and enjoyable experience. If I am ever going to add a sibling for my new puppy I will be using this company again!

Yourpuppyfl.com Seller was very kind and very knowledgable. They even delivered my puppy to me, 2 of them. They also gave me about 9-10% discount. I looked online for a puppy called them and they showed me videos of my German Shepherd and American bulldog puppies and delivered them to me on the same day. 5 ⭐️

I had a very professional and extremely courteous experience with both Jarrod and Logan. I have my own Teddy Bear puppy who is now 10 months old. My neighbors son came to stay with her for a few months after going through an extremely rough time over the last 10 years. He has PTSD among other issues, and my puppy had been a huge help in his recovery. My dog has become best friends with him and they both benefit from each other. So the other day, his mom (my best friend).. started asking me questions about my dog and I know she sees the change in her son for the positive. So I went home and started researching and looking for an available puppy for him. So ultimately, I bought the puppy for him. The transaction with Your Puppy FL went seamlessly. Jarrod emailed me forms to sign and I paid for the puppy and she was delivered to me in ONE hour! This new puppy (Lyla) is an Angel, and it’s the joy that she is bringing to him is just amazing! I haven’t seen him happier. The kind of love that they share already, has been so rewarding for me, and I’m so happy that I was in a position to do this for him. You can’t put a price on that. I’ve had it all, and I’ve also had nothing. So I believe in “paying it forward.” So now these 2 puppies are neighbors and already best friends. So it’s been such a positive experience for all of us. I would just like to send my gratitude to Your Florida puppy FL, and I will absolutely recommend you to my friends that may be interested in buying a dog. Thank you again so much 💖 Sincerely, Anne DeFuria
