These doggies are well known for making very good companion doggies, due to their loving and happy natures. They absolutely love 'hoomans', which includes children! And could also potentially get on well with other dogs as well, so long as they are socialised from a young age. They are also a very adaptable breed, and because of their small size, are suitable for apartment or small home living, so long as they are given the right amount of exercise. One thing to bear in mind is that they do have terrier in them and normally suit a family who have experience with other terrier breeds as they can sometimes be difficult to live with if not trained correctly! But their loyal and loving natures make them a fantastic family dog, with the potential to provide you with years of happiness and love!

These little doggies are thought to have first appeared around twenty years ago as a result of crossing the two pedigrees; the Jack Russell and the Miniature or Toy Poodle. As they are a relatively new breed, characteristics and traits can vary from puppy to puppy, meaning some will look and act very differently to others! They are often discussed as being a 'designer' cross breed and although not recognised by the Kennel Club, they are generally a very healthy doggy, so long as they are bred responsibly.
