The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation American Pit Bull Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier is a cross between a pure ABPT and a pure JRT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. The high energy of the JRT combined with the muscular power of the APBT means that this mix should only be held by responsible owners who know what they're doing.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, expect the APBT / JRT mix to be small but powerful and perhaps even hyper in some cases.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the APBT / JRT is not a dog for owners unable to socialize an energetic animal.
