Information and Pictures

A medium-sized, wavy coated white and tan dog with longer hair on his snout and ears, dark eyes and small fold over ears sitting down on a maroon couch next to a tan pillow

"This is our dog Toby at one year old. He is a Westie mixed with a Jack Russell. Wonderful dog and disposition and is very loving. He can be shaggy like the Benji dog or trimmed right down with just a hairy face. He is 25 lbs, about as tall as a Cocker Spaniel. We are sorry we did not take another pup from the litter. There were 7 in all. The father is a white Jack Russell and the mother is a Westie."

Other Names
  • Westie Jack

The Jack Highland Terrier is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Jack Russell Terrier and the Westie. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
