How Long Do Jack Russel Terriers Live?

ok so my Jack Russel Winnie (Winston, actually) he is ten years old and his birthday is i think umm. . july 18th? so he would be 11! my mom says Jack Russels live 15 to 20 years but is she telling the truth? (its funny that my dog is a year older than me. . )
fox by the way he is energetic and cute and awesome but he isn't as energetic as he used to be. and chloe, he is healthy so yeah. and hallesser3 i know that jack russels get hip problems but i didnt know that other stuff

They live to be about 15 years or more but as he gets older watch for dislocation of the kneecaps, eye diseases, deafness, and hipdisease because jack russels are prone to these health problems

    it's true, they can still have the same amount of spunk as they did when they were puppies too! Such great long term companions :D

    They live for a long time – most over 15. My terrier cross breds were 14 (a week short of her birthday :{ ) and 15 when they died. My aunts pure bred Jack Russell was 19.

    It depends on their health, and everything. Obviously some don't, but on average they have longer lives than most breeds.

    The oldest dog in the world just had it;s 21st birthday and I think it was a JR. They are too ornery to die young.lol
