Therefore, the appearance of a new dog on his territory starts a cruel war. Of course, it can't be applied to all Jack Russel Terriers but statistics don't lie.

However, Jack Russell will be a lovely neighbor for the dogs of their breed especially if they grew up together and know each other from the very childhood.
To sum up
All things considered, Jack Russel Terrier is a wonderful breed but sometimes they are unfriendly to other animals. They act aggressively because this is the way they protect the territory. In addition, it is caused by some historical facts (hunting, etc.) But they would be best fellows with other animals if they spend childhood together. So, before bringing a new pet home, take everything into consideration and make the right choice. Respect your dog's feelings.
