Question:

: We have had a Jack Russell for a little over two weeks. We picked the breed for its high energy, not inspite of it. But our dog isn't high engergy. It has no energy. She hasn't even explored our house. She just stays balled up in the corner.

: The only tim eher tail comes up is when she sees herself in the mirror, or another dog. She is in her first heat. Is that it? Will she energize? What do we do?

Hi, Sidney,

Your breeder would really be the best person to ask these questions of. That kind of behavior is not typical of the Jack Russell, and it might be worth having her checked by a veterinarian, just to be on the safe side.
