Okay.Would you adopt a Jack/Pom mix from a dog rescue? Does it matter what color? What age? Male or Female? How old;puppy or adult?

They are from a farm. We have a 10 year old and he is rather lonely. He needs a campanion and playmate and to learn some responsibility.

We want a dog that will play with him, but not try to kill our cats!

I thought since pomeranians are pretty laid back, it would calm down the terrier side a bit and make a good fun, family dog.

Not to make you sound bad or anything,but the Pom side won't calm down the Terrier side any. Poms are actually quite hyper dogs.What states are close to where you live? Would you adopt from a rescue?

After you read this if you notice,they all have long thick fur(because you live in Canada)& they are all good with children(because you have a 10 year old child.)
Does your son know not to mess with a dog while it has food of any kind? He does know that he should not tease them with food or toys or he could get attacked.If he does not know this please teach him that before you get a dog of any breed.

several of those are pretty hyper dogs, lol. Not much of a step up from a jack. In fact...I think all of those are really hyper. How about a west highland white terrier or a shih tzu? They seem to be a little clamer, but still love to play and are great family dogs. The westie is from the highlands, so should be able to stand any cold weather. The shih tzu is just an all around wonderful dog. Both are good with kids. Then again, IMO, a terrier is more likely to go after a cat than say, a companion or gundog. A jack russel would probably be a much bigger responsibility for your kid than many dogs (alot of adults can't even handle them). You could go to the farm and see how the puppies act. They may fit into your lifestyle, but they may not. Have you thought of a larger breed, such as a lab? They are really easy to train, relitively calm (IMO), and make great companions for kids and adults alike.

Please tell us what you decide on [Smile]

I was going to put The westie & the Shih tzu,but they are good with kids if they are raised from puppyhood with the kid.

We are in Saskatchewan. Close to the dakotas.

I actually have a border collie that lives with me half time. A larger dog than that really is not what we ar elooking for. He wants a companion to play and snuggle with. My border collie is a little to jumpy and listens to me almost solely. She plays favorites. lol

You raise a good point to get him used to a dog. My border collie is very human like. She would never bite anyone, you can take food of anything else away from her at any time. She doesn't even get upset when the cats take her food. She is a big whimp, but I love her.

Why don't you get another Border collie or get an Australian sheperd.They are easy to train,they love kids,& they are great family pets.Would you adopt a dog from a dog rescue? If so let me know & I'll find you a dog.

getting a dog across the borders is a pain - they have be quaranteened and stuff. I more made this post to see if anyone could tell me if they had this type of dog and how it acted. Maybe to see some pictures of their dog. Personally, I want a bigger dog, but we decided this one is for my son.

Oh okay...I still think that you should get a American eskimo dog or a schipperke,not because of their thick coat to suit your climate,but because they love children & they will love your son to death.They will stay by his side all the time.They will also protect your son.they are both great dogs.I looked for some pics of a Pom/Jack mix for you,I didn't find any anywhere. [Frown] Sorry.

pomeranians jack russlls and border collies are all essentially BAD ideas around young children. Poms tend to be bad tempered, jack russells like to nip - and not necessarily to be nasty, just because they're terriers and thats what they do and collies - well they arent a suitable pet dog full stop. They are contrary to popular opinion DIFFICULT to train, (easy to teach yes but thats a whole different thing) one-person dogs, hyper sensitive and very volatile, especially around children that may poke them in the eye/pull their tail. Yes you get the odd good one (like the one you have now) but they are few and far between, i wouldnt risk it a border collie is suitable only as a working dog, do not buy one as a pet. . A jack russell will also probably attempt to kill your cats. terriers are bred to kill small furry things. I would suggest a clumber spaniel, a whippet or a shih tzu as being suitable for your situation.

Thanks for everyone's opinions.

Turns out these pups also have some west highland terrier in them. They are only 1/4 pom, 1/4 jack.

I think we may go with a female from this litter.

Good luck with that. They sound great! ( I have Jack Russells...so yes, I am partial to that breed!)
