Any GSD owners that also have JRT?

I'm interested in getting a JRT (both the breed in general and one dog in particular). I've never owned a little dog before, or a terrier, but I've always liked JRTs (and mine would definitely do flyball). I will never be without at least one GSD so I'm just wondering how these breeds typically do together?

i don't have one but i'm sure they'd do fine together. just know what your getting into when you get a Jack Russell there extremely high energy dogs that are by nature hunters. and that mean a rather (in my option) annoying bark all day long... Do your research and make absolutely sure that a jack is gonna fit into your and your GSD's life other wise your just asking for trouble.

I've met tons of JRT's working in the stables over the years.....highly intelligent, endless energy. Can definitely keep up with a GSD. If they didnt get a long, it would be a personality thing, not a breed thing.

Lies, my JRT's have always gotten along with my Shepherds and also while they do have high energy and off the wall prey drive, mine have settled in the house with no problem and in fact love snuggling on the sofa or crawling under the covers. I do though make sure the JRT's do not unnecessarily annoy the Shepherds and conversely I don't allow my Shepherds to ever harass my JRT's as the main thing with Jacks, and really most terriers in general, is they have no sense of self preservation and will never back down from a fight, I always supervise their play and have never had issues, in fact they have gotten along great and are fun to watch play and interact, and my JRT's have never been incessant yappers either, unless they have something cornered or trapped.

I agree with Larhage that these little dogs will NOT back down from a fight, and are pretty fearless.

I have a friend who is a judge/breeder/rescue of Jrt's, at one point she had 18 of them, (including rescues), OMG, a pack of little monsters She had to shuffle around because obviously she had alot and all didn't get along. I know she had some horrific fights and I know they had crazy prey drive and would take on anything.

I think having one you would do just fine , but they are a dog who won't back off from a fight.

jrts are fun little dogs. we "as in my daughters" each adopted a jrt from classmates in school. both get along with gsd, she has a nack for letting them know when she has had enough. love sitting on your lap when watching tv, plenty of energy outside. they will sleep by your feet under the overs. the will chase and catch squirrels, mice ect....

I don't have a JRT,but have been around quite a few of them and have seen good and bad representations of the breed. In the right hands though they are fun little dogs and I always said that if I was going to get a small dog,they would be a breed I would consider. I am partial to the wire coats over the smooth though.

Claudia Romard had Mr. Murphy and did Schutzhund with him Every time I hear her talk about him, its about how she loved him so much and misses him.

I'm mostly interested in the interactions with GSDs but it sounds like it won't be a problem. I know all about their instincts and exercise requirements, though I've never owned one I have always liked them and have been running one in flyball. I'm looking at one in particular and would only ever have one (I don't aspire to having a pack of them underfoot, but I'm interested in this particular one).
