Is the Jack Russell Terrier the smartest breed of dog?

Possibly. Jack Russell Terrier owners will certainly tell you that their breed is the most intelligent. They were specifically bred to hunt foxes and so breeders sought to create a small, fearless dog that is as smart (and as quick) as a fox. Jack Russells are commonly used in television and film because they are highly trainable.

There has only been one comprehensive study of dog intelligence by breed. The study was done by Stanley Coren and his widely publicized rankings are published in his book "The Intelligence of Dogs: A Guide To The Thoughts, Emotions, And Inner Lives Of Our Canine Companions."

Unfortunately, Jack Russells do not appear on Coren's list because Jack Russell Terriers are not an American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized breed. The Jack Russell community has been reluctant to seek AKC recognition because of fear that it might dilute the dog's hunting attributes.

By the way, here is Coren's top 10 (without Jack Russell consideration):

1. Border Collie

2. Poodle

3. German Shepherd

4. Golden Retriever

5. Doberman Pinscher

6. Shetland Sheepdog

7. Labrador Retriever

8. Papillion

9. Rottweiler

10. Australian Cattle Dog

Who was Russell Lena Blackbourne?

From http://www.voorhees.k12.nj.us/osage/fourth/LARSEN/JKIDS/LENA.HTM: LENA BLACKBOURNE'S RUBBING MUD by: Mrs. Larsen, courtesy of the New Jersey Historical Society Since 1938, Major League Baseball has been relying on a natural resource found only in New Jersey. At that time, an outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds named Russell Lena Blackbourne came to New Jersey looking for a certain kind of mud. Blackbourne had visited many streams to dig up mud, which he then rubbed on new baseballs to make them easier to grip. Blackbourne found a stream near Willingboro, New Jersey that had a certain kind of mud on the bottom which, when he rubbed on a new baseball, would not change the baseball's color, but improved its grip. He kept the location of this stream a secret, and began to harvest the mud, package it in cans, and sell it to Major League Baseball. When Blackbourne died, his friend John Haas continued packaging and selling the special mud. Lena Blackbourne's Rubbing Mud is still used today in Major League Baseball. Before every game, the mud is rubbed on 5 dozen new baseballs. There is even a can of the mud on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and the place where it is found in New Jersey is still a well kept secret. American League umpire Harry Geisel's complaints about slick baseballs sparked the practice.

Why do Jack Russells bring rodents in the house?

Jack Russell terriers are bred to ground small rodents such as rabbits, gophers, rats etc. They kill and bring them to you because it is in their nature to do so. The dog is well bred apparently

It is in their nature because farmers in the past and probably present day use terriers to clean their barns of rats.

They were originally bred to fox hunt and so they have very strong hunting instincts. All these traits provide them with the ability to dig and chase rodents, rabbits, and foxes.

What breed is a Jack Russell x dashaund?

"What breed is a Jack Russell x dachund"Where I come from this is a ditch dog or mutt puppy. It is not a specific breed it is a crossbred dog. Don't let these designer names fool you. A crossbred dog is still a cross bred dog even if it has a fancy name. A pure bred dog is a dog that retains specific characteristics with every litter produced. A crossbred dog does not retain specific characteristics. It is not registerable by any verifiable dog registry such as AKC or UKC

The fancy names are only a selling trick that, to me, is not an ethical activity. Anyone who has to create a market by calling a rose an orchid is the same as the old "snake oil" salemen of the past. Don't be conned by the con men. They are selling you something for a high price that you can find in any dogpound for $25.00.
