In Reply to: Yard ? before I become a owner.
: Hello, I am researching the breed to see if it is suitable to my families life style. The only thing I have found that is questionable is the part about letting a JR roam. I live in the country with a few acers of land and I would like to be able to not worry when I let the dog out of the house, that it would go on a 2 day hunting trip or get traped in a hole. Is this a real concern?
Yes, this is a real concern; I assure you that the warning about letting a JRT roam free wouldn't be posted if it wasn't true. If you still have doubts about whether or not a JRT will follow it's instincts then I suggest you review the Memorials and the Lost Dog pages.
Thank you for researching the breed before you bring a JRT into your home.
