What mixture of breeds do you think this is?

This is my ddog who sadly had to be PTS a few weeks ago. He was the most brilliant little dog, so much character and stubborn as a mule, and he thought of himself as a prince rather than a dog.

The guy that bred him was a bit mad and he had also passed away now so I can’t contact him, but I always wanted to know what breed ddog was. I was told he was a jack Russell x highland terrier. But he looked nothing like a highland terrier to me. He was what you’d call long wheel base, and had little short legs.

When he was young he was Black and Tan but his tan bits went grey in his old age.

What do you think, doghousers?

This was his colouring in his younger years.

The sister looks jrt x Westie

Sid looks like a mixture of terriers, Jack Russell, Patterdale, Lancashire Heeler etc He even looks a bit corgi in his younger days!

Sorry for your loss flowers

Thanks. His sister had the same face and physique but was fluffy and white! Sid had short but wiry fur, he was like a little Brillo pad.

JRT/patterdale I reckon.

He looks a lot like my dog who I had dna tested last week. I was shocked. We were told by the rescue he was 100% Jack Russell and have clearly fake kc papers.

I'm so sorry about Sid.. he looked like an amazing dog. Hope you're as okay as can be x

I'd say Jack Russell x Border. Lovely little chap!

Looks like a wire haired, chunkier version of mine. Like yours, everyone agrees mine is part JRT but the second part is up for debate. The folklore he came with is part dachshund - but as I say he's longer and slimmer than yours. His only papers are a puppy vaccination book which just says JRT.

Looking at yours I'd be wondering if there was some Lancashire Heeler, but you don't get many of those. Looking at the sister, I'd say JRT x Westie was accurate.

Part of the trouble is that JRTs at so non standardised as the KC only started registering them 2 years ago. Someone told DF in the park (alas, I didn't get a chance to question him) that sometimes a pure JRT litter will throw up one black and tan puppy. Never got around to researching it, but if it's true perhaps that happened to both of ours?

Got the colouring similar to a border terrier and looks like a jack Russell

Looks like patterdale, jack Russel and maybe a bit of border terrier. He looks like he was a wonderful little dog. I'm very sorry for your loss. thanks

Some corgi maybe? He looks like a darling little dog and I am sorry you are now without him.
