: I would like to get a jack russell terrier but I am mildly allergic to dogs. In a recent test dog was divided into 3 catagories and in two of the three categories were checked and given a score of 0. What does this mean. Also the category dog(greer)showed that I was not allergic does this mean that I can get a jack russell terrier?


Hi Paul,
This isn't something we can answer for you and you will need to talk to your Dr. about this. I can tell you that the Jack Russell sheds 24/7/365 and then some. This isn't a hypoallergenic breed of dog. People who have allergy problems, normally have problems with breed.
Please speak to your own physician about getting a pet of any kind.
