Question:

: I am thinking about getting a female JRT when she is 9 wks old. I have 2 kids, 4 & 19 mo. I also have a cat and a miniture schnauzer. I plan on enrolling the puppy in classes. Will this puppy do ok in my family?


Response:

Hi Robin,

We don't normally recommend this breed when people have very small children, or cats. You also don't mention what sex your schnauzer is. Same sex aggression is very common with this breed so if your schnauzer is female you could have some real problems.

I am providing you some links. Please take the time to read them and we thank you for asking before making such a commitment.
