Hello again! I was curious about to know about your "little" friends -the Jack Russells-. Well, I kind of check them out in the net and I gotto know something interesting, they're strong, really strong! But the one I saw was Jack Russell Terrier, so I wasn't really sure if that's the one you're raising. From the review, it says "Big dog in small body" LOL~ One thing for sure, those JRT are not for the 1st timers! Good ot hear that you have done some reserch on dogs, that actually will help you to choose a right breed to own at home.In short people always JRT to name Jack Russell and because they under the terrier group, so the T is coming along. They are hunting dog and their are very active. They could be very fierce sometime due to their character, that is why they call it big dog in small body. You need extra patient about JRT compared to others breed cause they are very very stuborn and they think straight one(one way ticket) but I believe with your love given to them, they can be your good buddy to keep you company but be prepared if you are a first timer and wanted to own them at home..

I have some qustions, hope you don't mind answering them.
1. How long have you been in this "field"? Don't really understand the meaning "field" you stated here. I start to own dogs when I was 13 yrs old, the max at one time at home 4 dogs, the last breed I own was a Pug, a very loyaty dog but he ran away form my house and beleive somebody have picked him up. I love dogs cause they are your good buddy.
2. Is this your second dog? Jingle and Patches to me should be the number 7 & 8 dogs I ever own
3. How much roughly do we need to spend on the dogs? Include food, medication and etc into your estimation. The 1st cost will be getting a dog (unless you choose to adopt), then you will need to rpeapred the 2nd & 3rd vaccination each cost you around 40-45 ringgit(1st normally the pet shop or the breeder will do it) Tick and flea prevention pack from frontline spot will be around 50 ringgit per box got 3 apply inside and it can last you for 3 application which each time last for a month. shampoo and powder is one time purchase it normally will last you at least 6 months. For food, if your choose to own medium size breed, think a pack of 6-7 kgs kibles pack will last you for 1 1/2 months when they still below 8 months old but volume will keep increasing along the the way they grow. Kibles pack could be from small pack like 40-50 ringgit till big pack 90-140 ringgit, depend on brand. If you average the cost based on monthly basis, should be not more than 60 ringgit per month if you didn't buy too much of stuff for them, that is based on per dog count basis.
Hope you can get some idea here
