The Jack Russell Chihuahua Mix is a breed that proves that dynamite comes in small packages.
Because of mixing or breeding with different types of dogs, there is a great variety of dogs you can adopt or buy, all with their own unique habits and personalities.
Some potential owners are strict when it comes to the fact that the canine that they want to buy or adopt must be a purebred. This is understandable when it comes to breeding and they would like to breed with a certain type of dog.
When a purebred dog is mixed with a purebred dog from a different breed, these puppies are called mongrels and if the parents of the puppies are both mongrels the offspring are called mutts.
This does not mean that the dog is less special; it is just more unique when it comes to traits and characteristics. Through mixing and breeding you might end up with the combination you have always dreamed of.
The Jack Russell Chihuahua mix is not something so rare, since it has already been given a few names.
These names include, Jack chi, Jackhuahua and even Jackahuahua. These dogs are beautiful and they are very loyal pets.
Since the mixture of these two dogs is a mixture of purebreds, these mongrels will have characteristics consisting of 50% Jack Russell Terrier and 50% Chihuahua.
