Isabella Marie Adkins "Bella" , the Jack Russel-Whippet Mix

by Sara Adkins
(Jacksonville, NC, USA)


Bella is a whippet and jack russell mix. I adopted her from a family who didn't treat her well, she was about one year old and had come from a shelter, though they didn't give me her papers.

She was extremely timid and ran and hid if you got to close but, when she finally did come to me it was a perfect match! (: I took her home and she has since then been my travel companion, my puppy to cry on, (she is especially good at sensing emotions and acting accordingly) she's my defender (or so she tries) my cuddles, and my best friend!

I've had her for about four years and last year I expanded her name from just Bella to Isabella Marie Adkins, we got a new home stationed here with my marine and new husband, and she got a brother, Sargent socks, a domestic short hair kitten (: she loves to go to the park and chase her brother around until he plays back to rough, and she loves waiting at the door to jump and whine all over her new papa when he gets home!

She is a one of a kind and a beautiful member of our new growing family!

Jill-Dill from Dillsburg: the Jack Russel-Whippet Mix

by L. Dill
(Middletown, Maryland)

Meet Jilli-Bean Dill

Meet Jilli-Bean Dill

Hello,

Just tried this a minute ago and lost it all, but now I know better what to say!

I adopted Jilli from a lady in Dillsburg about 3 weeks ago. I'd never been there before, in Pa., and was nervous about driving. But had she said it was in Dillsburg, I probably would have laughed a bit and had more fun driving there! Anyways, you don't hear that name too awfully often! Hahaha!

I'd seen her pictures online and through emails. A little doll! They said she was a "petite," Jack Russell, and did look thinner to me; but I had no idea!

When I got her home, Jilli walked a bit and then came inside. Her back legs didn't move the same way a Jack's legs moved. She was much lighter, and her back legs barely touched down! To pee, she did a "tri-pod," looking Yoga stance, and the wind could have blown her away! I was a little nervous without a harness!

She immediately hit the big chair once inside! Pillows and all! No doubt about her, Jilli was an instant couch potato.

She stuck to me like a shadow and laid on the kitchen rug while I fixed her food! The sweetest thing you could ever imagine! Her change in behavior from inside to out was remarkable! Once on a walk, she was a hound dog in disguise. She definitely had the Jack Russell instinct for prey! Here this feminine little stream-line Jack, turned into an unusual hunter outside.

She stood up on her hind legs to big dogs like Labs. I could have sworn she said to this one chocolate Lab, "I may look like a small Jack Russell to you, but I really am Goliath." She wasn't mean, just totally assured! Confident! Hahaha!

Her little head was just too little for a Jack! Or Jill! And then I thought of the Whippet my son and I saw in Deep Creek Lake, Md. I found your website, and it was a match! She was a Whippet-Jack/Jill.

I'd always liked them but had hardly ever seen one. The Whippet is much more stream-line than the Jack Russell, and taller. While Jilli is shorter, she has the longer leg, but is stream-line like the Whippet with the feminine head. Same coloring as a Jack! I am amazed! Happy and blessed! I could not have picked a better Jilli-Bean! My little love!

Abby: Whippet & Jack Russell Terrier Mix (We Think)

by Pam
(wisconsin)

Abby

Abby

We just adopted 2 year old Abby from a rescue shelter. They told us she is a Jack Russell terrier and whippet mix.

Her head and coloring look like a jack but her body is whippet for sure....long, long slender body and long, long legs.

She is a huge couch potato and loves snuggly blankets. Her coat is smooth but very thin in places especially her ears and hind quarters.

When she decides she wants to play she plays in excited but short bursts and wears herself out quickly.

We got her a new round overstuffed bed yesterday and it's hard to get her out of it!

She is the sweetest dog I have ever seen and rolls over for belly rubs at the drop of a hat. She likes to jump and stand up and stretch her long legs.

I would appreciate any tips on making her feel at home and training.

We plan to take her to obedience class and as she is an only dog (but got along with other dogs at the shelter)

We want to make sure she is dog socialized. She does get a little growly if fearful.

Whippet Mix: Miss Daisy


I adopted Daisy from a shelter, they had no idea as to what breed she is.

At first, I was sure she was a Jack Russell Terrier. But as she grew older, I was seeing her change into something not quite Jack Russell. She also didn't have the personality of a the breed, she is very timid gentle and loving.

She likes to sleep on the couch on top of many pillows and blankets, and she is such a cuddler!

One of her most distinct features is her long sleek body, long neck and small head as well as her pretty almond shaped hazel eyes. One day at the dog park several people made the remark that she looks like a Whippet, I had never heard of the breed until then.

I went home and researched online, now I am quite certain that she is a Whippet mix.

She is such a lovely dog, I couldn't be happier that I found her... whatever she is!

Sasha: Jack Russell - Whippet Mix

by Georgie
(Palm Coast)

We adopted Sasha from the Flagler Humane Society in Palm Coast, FL.

Her 3 brothers were all partly blind. I wanted to adopt all of them but my mom wouldn't let me.

She was this little, scragga-muffin with brown and white wire fur. She runs so fast that she beat my brother on a bike in a race from our street's stop sign!!!!! I love my Sasha!!!

Whippet Mix Pictures: MoFo

Lil MoFo

Lil MoFo

This is my pup 'MoFo'. He is whippet x jack russell.

I have only had him for 3 days but he has just slotted into the family so easy!

He seems to have an old soul, so chilled out for most of the time. When he does get riled up he loves to play with his rope toy.

Just Rescued Lucky

by Barbara
(California)

Lucky - Day Two

Lucky - Day Two

I am on day 5 with Lucky, a 6 year old that I have been told is a whippet/jack russell mix.

He has the big chest and long legs of a whippet, and most definitely the temperament.

He is a couch potato (literally - I wake up every morning and he is on the couch. Do not know how to train him away from that yet).

Lucky is really a gem. He is still very nervous - has had a rough last few weeks, but clearly was loved at some time.

He can sit, stay. He is very smart, loves to play catch. Otherwise he just hangs.

He is my first dog. I am going to start giving him a bit of time at home without me this weekend (he has been coming to work), as I have a few days at the end of the month when I can't take him to work.

Wish me luck!
