Many people w/ female JRT's have ask me to breed my Pookums, but I thought he was allergic to Chicken and turned them down. Even though the litter he had w/ my daughter's Jack all turned out 2 like him and 2 like her. He's a Parson w/ one black and brown eye and both ears. Beautiful smooth hair, his father is a Broken coat and his mother looks like him. The breeder ***** was fabulous, she's since moved back east somewhere... When Pookums had skin problems I didn't want to breed him, the skin problems cleared up and THEN he got another Rabies Shot, It's starting all over again, itchy sores in his ears, on his legs and back. My poor baby, back w/ the pills and I hope it goes away soon. Since it's not a food allergy, I'm thinking about using him for breeding next time someone asks. Well, Someone who knows what to expect w/ JRT pups though!! Dog lovers are the BEST!! And JRT's are the best companions for active people, they never leave your side, even when you're sleeping...

Have 2 JRT's, love dogs, the country and fresh air.
Hi Great for not breeding when you thought it was allergies.. kudos to you.
But as a fellow breeder of JRTs... I can tell you unless your boy has some great PROVEN attributes. JRT rescues are overflowing, shelters are full of them too. I can tell you when I went looking for a stud for Dekka your dog wouldn't pass my criteria..
I wanted fantastic temperament, proven working ability, great conformation, compatable lines, and excellent health and from health tested lines.
I found a multi confo champion, proven in the field (almost has his bronze medallion), producer of working and confo champions, good lines for my girl, excellent heath tested lines.. all this with one of the nicest temperaments I have ever met in a male JRT.
*puppies are on the ground now and look and seem spectacular!
The stud owner had a list of requirements of his own too. (something to think about)
Kaiden.. my stud and Dekka's dad will only get to cover girls who are fully health tested, who's owners have signed the breed club's code of ethics, have a good temperament, compatible lines, and some thing to prove they have a good reason to pass on their lines. (working/sport titles)
Its big responsibility to breed dogs.. even as the stud dog owner.
Its my guess that anyone who wants to breed to your boy wouldn't pass even a cursory screening on their breeding practises.
Hello! I had a mini schnauzer that had the same problem your describing. 300.00 later I found out it was a form of red mange. A parasite. It took four vets to fix him. So if you have ruled out any genitic disorders than its up to you on breeding him.
