Staffy Jack Breed Summary
Energetic, Courageous, Loyal, Affectionate and Reliable
The Staffy Jack is a very new cross-breed and unfortunately there is not much information surrounding their origin. The breed is a cross between a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Jack Russell, most probably with the aim of creating a sturdy dog who both loves their family and can act as a good watch dog as well. Because they are so new, puppy size, physical appearance and temperament will vary from pup to pup.
Staffy Jacks, just like their parents are extremely energetic and will require lots of walkies and playtime. However, their parent, the Jack Russel has been bred as a hunting dog and this means they may try to attack small animals. As a result, we would suggest these guys be situated in a home with no other animals, especially ones such as rabbits, cats and hamsters. You can reduce their want to hunt through training and socializing your pups from a young age, but unfortunately you may never be able to full remove their want to hunt. A-side from this, they can also be very affectionate and loyal dogs and potentially make lovely family pets!
