How Long Do Jack Russells Live For?

My jack russell is just 5, my uncle had one who lived until it was 19…whats the average?

12-15 years. So theres plently more years of naughtyness left in your jack russell.

    well mine lived for 5 years because she had neusemia (a blood disease). but the pet shop gave her to me with the disease. umm i would go with like more than 10 years. but it depends on how you take care of it.

    I believe under the right conditions and care any dog can live many years after the life rate expectancy given for any breed.

    My old dog spotty lived till he was 17 I have his son and he is 12 now and still going very strong! I know some that have died at 12 others have gone on till there 18. I think it's a "how long is a piece of string" thing!!

    my jack russle terror is verey smart and clever so all u h8ters keep it to your self and jacks live to about 15-17

    the oldist jack was 34 and was healthy so i guess any age around 15+ but it depends on how happy,confident,healthy he/she is .

  • dont likt you

    I agree, if you don’t have one you don’t know Jack!!!!! These dogs are too smart for their own good. So you have to be smarter than the dog. Those who can’t handle a Jack aren’t as smart as a Jack.

    YEA, JACK RUSSELS ARE SMART I’M NOT FOR SURE BUT I THINK THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE SMARTEST KIND OF DOG THERE IS….MY JACK RUSSEL *DAISY* IS ABOUT 4 AND SHE IS PROBABLY SMARTER THAN ME LOL!!!!!

  • Lovin my Jack

    I have a Jack Russell Biskit who is 9 and I hope that she lives a very long time because I can not imagine life without her cheeky little ways. I really do not think that I am smart enough to handle a Jack Russell and do not really want to be. She is so loving and loyal and when she looks at you with those big brown eyes, you forget anything that she did that was a little bit naughty. But then after she was 1yo she just became cheeky rather than out right naughty. Long live the Jack Russell!!!!!!!!!!!
