From my experience of dogs, the Jack Russel Breed is the ideal pet. This is a dog with a definite personality. They are intelligent and are very obedient. They demand a lot of attention and if they do not get this they will be hell to live with. To seek attention they will dig up your garden and chew everything in site. Many people see only this side and then consider them to be a problem dog. DO NOT get a Jacky if you do not want to interact with your dog, otherwise you will only see the attention seeking side and will never understand why a Jacky is such a joy to have. They are very alert as a watchdog but are not aggressive to anyone, especially children (any child) They will even protect the child if the owner pretends to hit the child. They are small eaters and therefor make corresponding small poops. this is a distinct advantage. The ideal combination for security is to have a large male dog and a female Jacky (spade) She will alert him to danger and he will respond to protect her. I cannot think of a better pet.
