Species group:

Other name(s): Border Jack

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 Border Jack is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure JRT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. The combination of brains, tenacity, and energy mean that this mix can present some genuine behavior challenges to many busy owners.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, many Border Jacks tend to resemble the JRT side a bit more strongly.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Border Jack is unlikely to do well unless you're an involved owner who enjoys training your pet and giving it plenty of time in the outdoors or performing interesting activities. Expect an energetic animal. "Hyper" is often the adjective you'll hear.
