: What breed of dogs will my JRT get along with best?
Since I believe most of us that answer this Q&A forum only have JRTs we wouldn't be able to recommend compatible breeds.
That being said however, I find that personality plays a much more important role in compatibility than anything else.
If you have an alpha personality dog, you want to find a dog that can easily accept being lower in pack order. You don't want two alpha personalities because this is where most people have problems when adding additional dogs.
All breeds of dogs will have these different personalities, even the more perceived "mellow" breeds so the key is to knowing what your dog is personality wise and then finding a dog with a compatible personality.
