Hi Tom,

The breed standard for the JRT requires that the terrier be at least 51% white. I suppose somewhere way back in a line there can be a colored terrier and then have one suddenly pop up but this is pretty rare these days.

There are Patterdale or Fell terriers that look very similar to a JRT except they are colored terriers, usually being either black or red and some will have a touch of white.

You might want to do a search on Google and look up some of these terriers to see if yours looks more like this breed.
