Profile: Proud mom to six homeschooled kiddos, wife to an awesome husband. Right now, we have Jackie (our puppy) and Tennessee (our big girl dog) and 4 chickens. We had 32 chickens, but most of them were killed this past winter! Planning to get more this spring, as well as ducks, bunnies and a goat!

Jackie is a six month old half Pekingese and half Jack Russell Terrier. She is definitely more Jack Russell, though! She runs like the wind, chases our chickens, digs holes and is very rowdy and playful. She has front legs like a Pekingese, which is cute, because her back legs are like a Jack Russell. :) She has the markings of a Jack Russell but the tail of a Pekingese. She is very smart and quickly learns new commands. She thinks she is big stuff, as you can tell from our photos. She was "holding down" Tennessee with one paw (her exceptional strength! heehee) and she and her "mom" (that would be Tennessee) often play rowdy together. Tennessee just loves it, as it makes her feel young again. Jackie has had allergies ever since we first acquired her. She's very itchy but we find that the older she gets, the more it lessens. We almost had her put down in the beginning because we were beside ourselves (we thought it was mange) It was the vets' recommendation and I didn't know what else to do. But I just couldn't. Every time I looked at that sweet face, I knew I had to help her. I spent upwards of a thousand dollars on her to make her well but since she was a puppy, they couldn't give her allergy shots. We had to go the all-natural/herbal route. Pricey! She was worth every penny. We love her to pieces and we are so glad we didn't give up on her!!View Profile
