Jackapoo &#; A Complete Guide To The Jack Russell Poodle Mix


The Jackapoo is an adorable mix of the Jack Russell Terrier and the Toy or Miniature Poodle. Also known as the Jackadoodle, Poojack or Jack-a-Poo, this cute cross combines two loyal and fun breeds. Jackapoo temperament and appearance can vary a lot, depending on which of their parents they take after.

Where Does the Jackapoo Come From?

The Jackapoo is an adorable mix between the Jack Russell Terrier and the Poodle. To learn more about the origin of this cross, we can look to the history of each parent breed. First, we’ll start with the Jack Russell Terrier

The Jack Russell Terrier

The Jack Russell Terrier was bred in England in the mids. The reverend John “Jack” Russell bred them to be used as hunting dogs, mostly for fox, rabbit and other small game.

The breed was engineered to be quick enough to keep up with other hunting breeds, but small and sturdy enough to flush and capture small game. They spread to Australia, where it was further refined for its working role. Today, the Jack Russell is a popular companion animal, and is still often used by hunters!

The Poodle

The Poodle has a longer history, dating back over years. The Standard Poodle originated in Germany, where it was bred to be a retrieving dog for duck hunters.

The Poodle’s off-the-charts intelligence, combined with strong swimming skills and an eager to please temperament, made it a perfect retriever.

The Standard Poodle, a full-sized dog, was bred down to the Miniature Poodle, which began to shift the Poodle’s trajectory more towards companion dog.

The first Toy Poodle, an even smaller version, was bred in America in the early 20th century. By this point, breeders focused on developing companion dogs, and the Poodle’s hunting history slowly faded.

Today, there are three versions of the Poodle: the Standard, Miniature, and Toy. The Jackapoo can be bred from either the Miniature or the Toy.

All this cross-breeding and engineering of new dog breeds is somewhat controversial in some circles. An ongoing purebred vs mutt debate rages on, and no side is truly right or wrong. It’s wise to read up on the pros and cons of this debate before making your decision!

Now, let’s get back to the Jackapoo!

jackapooFun Facts About the Jackapoo

The Jackapoo is a quirky and adorable breed. It usually inherits the intelligence and loyalty of the Poodle, and the robust energy and playfulness of the Jack Russell.

Did you know that the Jackapoo is often considered hypoallergenic? There’s no breed of dog whose skin is completely free of the proteins which trigger allergies. However, many allergy sufferers report being able to spend more time around low-shedding breeds, like the Jackapoo!

Jackapoo Appearance

Like any mixed-breed dog, there will be some variance in Jackapoo appearance from dog to dog. Your Jackapoo puppy could inherit more characteristics of the Poodle, or more of the Jack Russell Terrier.

That said, this is typically a small dog, weighing around lbs and measuring inches. Again, this will vary depending on the dog’s genetics.

Their hair is typically short to mid-length, and can adopt the curly nature of the Poodle’s coat, or the coarse coat of the Jack Russell.

Coat color is usually black, brown, tan or white, or a mix of multiple shades. Some longer tufts of hair around the face and snout are common.

The size of the Jackapoo and other characteristics will depend on whether it was bred from a Miniature Poodle or a Toy Poodle. See our comparison of the two here. The biggest difference is of course in size. Jackapoos bred from Toy Poodles will be smaller than those bred from Miniature Poodles.

So, as you can see, there’s some variability with this breed’s characteristics. When you choose a mixed breed like the Jack-a-Poo, you have to be prepared for some unpredictability &#; both in the dog’s appearance, and it’s temperament. And speaking of temperament…

Jackapoo Temperament

Now we know about the Jackapoo’s appearance &#; but what about how they behave? The Jackapoo temperament is a mix of its two parent breeds, as well as how the dog is raised.

Generally speaking, the Jackapoo will inherit the intelligence and pride of the Poodle, and the active, hardworking nature of the Jack Russell.

However, some break the mould and bear a very strong resemblance to one parent over the other.

But what results is always an active, high-energy crossbreed that loves to have a job to do. Jackapoos require frequent exercise, and love to play outside.

Jackapoos can become destructive if they don’t get enough exercise, so keep that in mind when making your decision. They also can be big barkers, if not trained otherwise.

Jackapoos are not typically aggressive, so long as they are trained and socialized from a young age. The Jack Russell Terrier can be somewhat stubborn or aggressive with other animals, so again, socialization is very important.

Your Jackapoo will typically get along well with children, as long as it’s been socialized well. Both Poodles and Jack Russell Terriers can make good family pets, so the Jackapoo might be a good choice for families with children!

Training Your Jackapoo

The trainability of the Jackapoo depends on which parent breed comes through stronger. The Poodle is famous for its obedience and trainability, while the Jack Russell can have a bit more of a stubborn side.

Both parent breeds are extremely intelligent, so training usually goes well. Some Jackapoos can have a stubborn, prideful streak, which can sometimes complicate training plans. Patience might be required. Although, in the end, you’ll be able to train your Jackapoo to do just about anything!

Socialization is very important for all dogs, but particularly for the Jackapoo. If they are not exposed to plenty of other animals, dogs, children and strangers, the Jackapoo can become stubborn or even aggressive.

Your Jackapoo should be trained frequently, using positive reinforcement training. If need be, you can hire a professional trainer &#; but most Jackapoos can be trained at home.

The Jack Russell in your Jackapoo might cause the dog to bark frequently. This can usually be addressed through training, but nonetheless is something to keep in mind.

See our dog training guides and understanding your dog guide for details on training routines.

Also, remember that this is a very high energy dog! Your Jackapoo will need plenty of exercise every day. In addition to walks, you’ll want to schedule in some playtime to keep your Jackapoo engaged and happy!

Jackapoo Health

If you are considering this breed, you’re surely wondering about the health of the Jackapoo!

In general, the Jackapoo is a healthy breed and does not suffer from many hereditary health concerns. They have a general life expectancy of years.

However, like all breeds, the Jackapoo is more prone to certain health concerns than others.

Fortunately, most of the common health concerns of the Jackapoo are mild. Dry skin, allergies, and ear infections are common in this breed, but easily treatable.

In rarer cases, hereditary health problems are possible. Concerns like deafness, patellar luxation, arthritis, cataracts, thyroid disease and others are certainly possible in this mixed breed.

Some health concerns can be tested for in advance. This is one reason it’s important to choose a reputable breeder &#; good breeders will always conduct health tests on their breeding stock to help reduce the risk of health concerns.

Beyond keeping an eye out for common health concerns, you will also need to groom your Jackadoodle frequently. Remember to keep up with hygiene as well, by brushing your dog’s teeth, clipping nails, etc.

Do Jackapoos Make Good Family Dogs?

Jackapoos are loving, fun and high-energy Poodle mixes that can definitely make for a good family pet.

They are usually good with children, so long as they are socialized and trained.

They definitely love to spend time with their families, and are better off in homes with several people who can give them plenty of attention (and walks!)

Like all dogs, Jackapoos need to be supervised around children. However, once they are socialized, they usually get along well with kids!

Rescuing a Jackapoo

If you decide to get a Jackapoo, you can either purchase a puppy or adopt a rescue Jackapoo.

We always encourage our readers to support local animal shelters and rescue organizations by adopting pups from them. We have a list of Jackapoo rescues in a section below, if you are interested.

While we fully support adopting rescue dogs, it is important to keep in mind that you don’t know the dog’s history when you adopt. Rescuing dogs definitely requires patience, and is not for everyone.

Finding a Jackapoo Puppy

If you decide to get a Jackapoo puppy, you’ll want to locate a reputable breeder in your area. Be sure to ask for health test results, and do your research before choosing a breeder!

It’s important to avoid puppy mills and pet shops whenever possible. We recommend sticking to reputable breeders, or adopting a Jackapoo from a shelter.

Raising A Jackapoo Puppy

If you do get a Jackapoo puppy, you’ll want to start training and socialization very early.

Because the Jack Russell Terrier can be a bit aggressive towards other animals, socialization is very important with this breed. And the earlier you start, the better!

But instead of straining to meet the other dogs are chase the deer (which would make any JRT huntsman proud), he stops and looks up at me! I was worried about him being too feisty or energetic but he seems to be very Poodle-ly in personality (rare for this mix by what I've been reading) and quickly accepts others as alpha. He does okay with young children, opting for the "You guys have fun, I'll just sit back and watch." approach when dealing with those noisy little humans. He enjoys walks, belly and ear scratching sessions, and chilling with the Neapolitan Mastiff next door (although I think their friendship is pretty one sided). "

Frequently Asked Questions 

What do you call a Jack Russell Poodle mix? 

A Jack Rusell Poodle mix is known most commonly as a Jackadoodle or Jackapoo. This isn&#;t viewed as a purebred dog, however, the Jackadoodle is energetic, adoring, and very trainable. It gets exceptional qualities from the mainstream Poodle and Jack Russell Terrier like being mostly non shedding and hypoallergenic.

What does a Jack Russell Poodle mix look like? 

The most widely recognized shades of a Jackadoodle are black, dark brown, or cream colored bodies with white spots on their chest or face. However, the shades of the Jackadoodle can range broadly because of the hereditary qualities of Poodle and Jack Russell. No shading is ever truly ever % guaranteed.

Are Jackapoos Good Pets?

It’s important to remember that the temperament of a Jackapoo can vary quite a lot because the breed may take after either its Jack Russell Terrier or Poodle parent. For this reason, it’s difficult to exactly predict personality from the outset.

What tends to be universally true, however, is the fact that Jackapoos are typically very good pets. Jackapoos make excellent pets due to the breed’s sociable and affectionate nature.

No matter which parent breed the Jackapoo takes after, it’s usually safe to say that a Jackapoo will be active and playful. This means that it will be eager to engage and have fun with its owner(s). However, the average Jackapoo also enjoys its downtime and will happily cuddle and relax with its family members as well.

With the correct socialization, the Jackapoo has been shown to get along well and interact gently with children. This breed can also be trained and socialized to behave very well around other dogs.

The main situation in which a Jackapoo might not behave like an ideal pet is if it’s not being exercised enough. In this case, Jackapoos have a tendency to become bored and may begin to exhibit destructive behavior around the home. Luckily, the simple solution to this problem is to provide your Jackapoo with the recommended amount of daily exercise.

Are Jackapoos Yappy Dogs?

The Jackapoo does have quite a high-pitched bark, which has led many people to label the breed as inherently yappy.

However, much of this barking can be put down to the Jackapoo’s high levels of alertness. These are loyal and intelligent dogs, so they can be counted on to alert you to strangers around your home.

Excessive barking is one of the most reported behavioral issues in the Jackapoo breed, but if your Jackapoo won’t stop barking, don’t despair.

Thanks to the high intelligence levels of the Jackapoo’s parent breeds, Jackapoos tend to be very intelligent and, as a result, easily trainable. Unnecessary and excessive barking is just one of the many behaviors that can be addressed through obedience training. In most cases, positive reinforcement through praise and treats when your Jackapoo stops barking will be highly effective.

Do Jackapoos Shed?

As with the temperament of a Jackapoo, it can be difficult to ascertain how much your Jackapoo will shed until you actually bring one into your home.

The reason for this is that, as we already touched on in reference to the typical Jackapoo personality, Jackapoos may take after one of their parent breeds more than the other.

If your Jackapoo primarily takes after its poodle parent, you can expect quite minimal shedding, accompanied by relatively low-maintenance grooming requirements. In fact, a Jackapoo that takes after its poodle parent in the coat department can be considered hypoallergenic.

On the other hand, where a Jackapoo mostly takes after its Jack Russell parent, you can expect substantial shedding. In this case, you will need to be prepared to groom your Jackapoo more frequently and extensively.

Do Jackapoos Get Along With Cats?

Unfortunately, despite their relatively small size, Jackapoos tend to have a high prey drive. This means that they may naturally behave aggressively towards smaller animals like cats.

However, this does not mean that a Jackapoo can never get along with a cat. In fact, there is plenty of evidence that Jackapoos can coexist peacefully with cats, as long as socialization is facilitated from when the Jackapoo is a puppy.

If you want your Jackapoo to get along well with cats, it’s crucial to conduct introductions at the right time. Ideally, you’ll want to make sure that you introduce the Jackapoo and cat while they are both still young. This will ensure that they have plenty of time to get used to one another while minimizing any territorial issues.

It might help to introduce the Jackapoo to the cat slowly. For instance, keep them in separate areas of the same house to begin with, but allow them both to recognize the other’s scent by smelling your hand. Then, after a couple of days, conduct a relaxed, supervised introduction.

Even with a gradual introduction, there’s no telling for sure how the first meeting will go, so it’s important to be ready to step in if necessary. However, remember to stay calm.

Let the Jackapoo and the cat interact for a few minutes (assuming things are going well) before separating them again. Repeat the process twice to 3 times a day, until both animals seem comfortable with each other. This could take some time, so be patient.

Please bear in mind that while a Jackapoo might learn to be friendly around your family cat, it may still lash out at cats with which it’s familiar. Therefore, it’s wise to keep your Jackapoo a safe distance away from any cats outside the family.

Can Jackapoos Be Left Alone?

Jackapoos are prone to separation anxiety when left alone by their owners. Therefore, if you need to spend a lot of time outside of the home without your dog for whatever reason, the Jackapoo may not be the best breed for you.

In addition to anxiety, your Jackapoo may become bored if they are being left alone for extended periods of time and not exercised outside of the home enough.

If you have a Jackapoo and need to leave them home alone for any reason, it’s important to monitor your dog’s behavior for signs of anxiety or boredom.

Pacing, panting a lot, unexplained shivering, excessive licking and chewing, or even destructive behavior can all be signs of anxiety in your Jackapoo. These can also all be signs that your dog is bored. Whether boredom or anxiety is the root cause of your dog’s unusual behavior, the bottom line is that they mean your dog is unhappy.

Obviously, it can be difficult to ascertain whether your dog’s anxiety or boredom behaviors are triggered by your absence because you’re not there to witness it. A dog monitor or camera may be your best bet in these situations.

Jack-A-Poo Basics

The Jack-A-Poo is a lively little addition to the family that brings the super-charged energy of a Jack Russell Terrier together with the fun-loving, low-shedding properties of a Toy or Miniature Poodle. While he’s great with kids and is always up for a rigorous game of catch, he doesn’t always do well with other pets and early socialization is important.

The Jack-A-Poo is a mix of Toy or Miniature Poodle and Jack Russell Terrier.


Because of the rise in popularity of low-shedding dogs, Poodles are often used in the creation of Designer Dogs and this pooch is a classic example of that cross-breeding. The Jack-A-Poo brings together the Miniature Poodle which dates back to 16th century Germany and the Jack Russell terrier that hales from mid’s England.


A Jack-A-Poo is an energetic pooch who needs regular daily exercise and active play for mental stimulation.The Jack-A-Poo does not qualify for registration with the American Kennel Club (AKC) because he is a cross-breed however both parent breeds are members. The Parson Russell Terrier (AKA Jack Russell Terrier) became a member of the AKC’s “terrier” group in while the Poodle joined the “sporting” group in


Your Jack-A-Poo is a smaller to medium sized dog and should be fed a high-quality kibble that reflects his size and activity level. Meals should be spread between 2 to 3 feedings with no fillers such as carbs or grains that may cause him to over-eat to feel full. Because of the Poodle DNA, your Jack-A-Poo may be prone to two digestive diseases: pancreatitis and hemorrhagic gastroenteritis when he hits hit middle age. High fat meals and treats are a big no-no.

A Jack-A-Poo is an energetic pooch who needs regular daily exercise and active play for mental stimulation.


This is one smart little dog with a keen-to-please personality. The terrier in him means he has a feisty, stubborn streak so training will require patience and a firm, consistent approach. Early socialization is important to ensure he knows how to play nice with other animals and is accepting of new faces. As with most dogs, rewards-based training with lots of praise and treats of your choice will net you the best results.


The weight of a Jack-A-Poo can range between 13 and 25 pounds depending on whether his lineage includes a Toy or Miniature poodle.


Jack-A-Poos are a great family pet due to their affectionate, lively nature.Jack-A-Poos come from two intelligent breeds of dog and make a great family pet due to their affectionate, lively nature. They can have a stubborn side which needs to be addressed during training to ensure he knows his pack leader. This, along with socialization when he is young will help curb the terrier in him and ensure he gets along well with children and other animals. He isn’t keen on being left alone for long periods of time and this, coupled with a high energy level can result in him becoming bored, destructive and barking.

Common Health Problems

Health issues that present in pure-breds can often by-pass a cross of the breed and Jack-A-Poos are not known to suffer from any specific ailment. Medical conditions he may one day inherit from parent breeds could include Addison’s Disease, Von Willebrand’s, patellar luxation and other joint ailments.

Life Expectancy

The average life span of a Jack-A-Poo is 12 to 15 years.

Exercise Requirements

The terrier side of your Jack-A-Poo means he is an energetic pooch who needs regular daily exercise and active play for mental stimulation. Having an active lifestyle is important for this dog has his tendency to become overweight can result in painful joint issues later in life. Because he comes from a breed that wanders, you may want to consider playtime in your own backyard versus a dog park where it may be tough to round him up.

Jack-A-Poos are a great family pet due to their affectionate, lively nature.

Recognized Clubs

Also known as the Jack-A-Doodle, Jackadoodle, Jackpoo, Jackdoodle, Jackapoo and Poojack, the Jack-A-Poo is not recognized by the American Kennel Club however he is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC), Designer Breed Registry (DBR), Designer Dogs Kennel Club (DDKC), International Designer Canine Registry (IDCR)


The Jack-A-Poos’s coat is typically coarser than that of a Poodle however he did inherit the Poodle’s low-shedding characteristics which make him relatively low maintenance. Twice weekly brushing should be sufficient for this dog with professional grooming every few months to keep him looking his best. He does have floppy ears so inspection and cleaning to remove debris can prevent infection should be conducted at the same time he is brushed.


Jack-A-Poo puppies are tiny bundles of energy and need early obedience training and socialization. Some may have chewing issues between months of age so be prepared to load up on fun and interesting chew toys to keep him busy. In spite of the inclination to tire this little firecracker out with walks, he does come from two breeds that experience joint issues so take it easy on his little legs.
