  14. Humans can opt out of cosmetic surgery, but dogs aren’t so lucky. We choose for them—and we often choose painful, unnecessary procedures such as ear-cropping and tail-docking. To give certain breeds so-called “desirable” traits, unscrupulous veterinarians perform cruel, disfiguring surgeries that cause dogs great suffering.

    Dogs usually have their ears cropped when they are just 8 to 12 weeks old. At this stage in their development, the trauma of the procedure can have a strong psychological impact on the maturing pup. The process of taping and retaping a pup’s ears to force them to stand erect after they have been cropped can be agonizing for the dog.

    Puppies are normally just a few days old when their tails are docked. They are generally not even given anesthetics to numb the pain. Compassionate veterinarians object to the arbitrary removal of body parts used for communication, balance, and expression. Dogs “talk” to their human companions and other dogs using their ears and tails.

    Performing medically unnecessary procedures that simply perpetuate the image of dogs as fashion accessories is outrageous. This image is promoted by the American Kennel Club at its canine beauty pageants and by breeders who believe that “their” breed will be “ruined” if it does not maintain the image handed down by parent breed clubs decades ago.

    These procedures are so cruel that they are banned in many European countries. For example, British kennel clubs outlawed ear-cropping a century ago, and cosmetic tail-docking was stopped the U.K. in 1993.

    Sadly, some veterinarians still see nothing wrong with mutilating a dog whose guardian is willing to pay for it. The American Veterinary Medical Association states that “ear-cropping and tail-docking are not medically indicated nor of benefit to the patient. These procedures cause pain and distress and, as with all surgical procedures, are accompanied by inherent risks of anesthesia, blood loss, and infection. Therefore, veterinarians should counsel dog owners about these matters before agreeing to perform these surgeries.”

  15. i have a jack russell terrier one thing i taught him was this one thing so when every he wants food or to go outside he bites my hand softly and its like he's holding my hand and now i been sort of training him do it and he got better at it

  16. i have a jack russle terrier he always follows me around and wakes me up i the middle of night cause he's hungry.

  17. I have a Jack companion he is 9 years old and is almost a spitting image of Milo from the original mask movie just slightly less brown on the back. I've had Collies, Alsatians and Retrievers hands down Jacks are the most intelligent out of the breeds. Jacks are more Human like, they require to be treated as equal you can't have a Jack and treat it like a pet otherwise you'd have a bad Jack on you're hands.

  18. Thank u for posting this now my mom knows why she kills rats and she was always like "were sending that dog to the pound cuz she is not useful" lol but thank you ?!

  19. I want to get a jack russell but i live in an apartment… is that a good idea or should i get a french bulldog…or a pug

  20. I have my third one. My first one was bred for go to ground. Smart but Crazy! The others are calmer, as they have shorter legs and I keep them worn down.

  21. 1:31 Is Must know information, 2:03 is the only mistake in the video. And an important fact is left out, Jack Russell's will give you something to live for (brighten your life even if you are trapped in misery) , devotion, protection, guard 24-7, laughs and infinite Love like no other animal.

  22. Can you do a Alaskan husky video please. Not malamutes but husky as I have a Alaskan husky and he is so much more different to Siberian husky’s

  23. My little Jack went everywhere with me! At 14 she was still chasing bunnies and deers. Her life was cut short by Bravecto! It was horrible. She developed Neurological symptoms that got so bad I had to put her down!
    There's a FB group:. Does Bravecto kill dogs! Please educate yourself before giving your dog a harmful pesticide! Don't let a get tell you it's safe!

  24. They can become hyper, but hyper what you didn't say. Hyper is an adjective, it operates on a noun, but there there is no noun for it to operate on.

  25. My jack Russell died a couple months ago and his name was buster. Please support me I always get nightmares about it, I had him since I was born and I’m now eleven.

    Apparently Buster was 19 human years old when he died ?????????????

    But I now have another jack russell called Lucy and she’s about 8 months old and I’ve had her since she was 5 months and she’s hyper and she’s trying to jump up on me as I’m writing this comment

  26. I'm that awkward guy here not owning a dog. Only interested in the facts about the breed. No one I've ever met has managed to handle these dogs. Especially not the women (i know, might just be a local anomaly ;). That being said I love these dogs if properly trained.

  27. Mine is 9 years old now and without a doubt the most enjoyable, loyal, loving pal I've ever had.  I hope he lasts forever.
