I have 2 JRTs. They do great with the GSDs, by and large.

Unfortunately, my first JRT has cataracts in both eyes (started going blind before he was 3) and terrible allergies. My 2nd JRT has no health issues, fortunately.

A have a 25 pound 1/2 jack Russell/ 1/2 cattle dog. He does great with my two shepherds. He holds his own just fine. My brother has a full jack Russell who is more on the timid side but she gets along fine with my dogs. She doesn't have the standard jack Russell personality tho. My mix is more like a jack Russell than her. He can be very vocal, digs up the moles in the yard, has great ball drive, is smart, and can run 10 miles with me without getting tired. He is a fun little dog.

The only thing I don't like about our JRT mix is that he will not listen if he gets out of our yard. He will run around the neighborhood for 20 minutes and he won't let you catch him for anything. He always comes back tho. Pretty sure that is the terrier side of him because I grew up around a lot of cattle dogs that stayed close to their person. It drives me nuts, but he is awesome with or two GSDs

I can't wait to meet Trixie. I'm more excited about that then Nikon's BIG weekend, lol (but it's probably good, keeping my nerves at bay). If it works out I might have to change her name though.

I've known several people with terriers and GSDs. it seems like they go well together. JRTs don't know they are small dogs, so they probably think they are bigger than a GSD anyway.
I used to have a Rat Terrier mix, possibly part JRT (not sure) and he was a great dog. I didn't have a GSD at the time but I am sure he would have been fine with my Shepherd. The terriers always keep you laughing. You have to remember though that they're not like a Shepherd, they are more interested in what's in it for them than in pleasing you. They are very intelligent though. I at first thought my terrier was really stubborn but once I found a training method that took that into account(clicker training), he was a VERY quick learner and easy to train.
