We had to say goodbye to our 16.5 y.o. Jack Russell last June. After much thought and planning we decided to add this little lady to our family. She is an F1B Aussiedoodle and she's adorable! She also has a great personality. Just wanted to share a few pics with the group.

(1,230 posts)Many thanks for sharing the love and joy, IrishAfricanAmerican.

This big ole grin I’m wearing now goes all the way to my heart, and that’s always such good medicine.

What does F1B mean?

(17,959 posts)I didn't know there was a system for keeping track of such distinctions, but it makes a lot of sense.

I think the ones that are more than half poodle (like your girl) are the cutest, because I love the curly hair. 😍 But that's just a personal preference, of course.

#### IrishAfricanAmerican

(3,976 posts)I get up in the middle of the night anyway to do a nasal rinse so I just take her out at the same time.

(9,580 posts)I swear, every time I have to put down our fur family member, I will never get another. Only to go thru the pain I go thru at our family fur member's passing........

And then, I always go out and find another perfect one................

#### IrishAfricanAmerican

(3,976 posts)but our Jack Russell was as well. Her personality is much more sedate than his was. She's great!

#### 3catwoman3

(24,994 posts)She looks like a little stuffed animal.

What a balm she must be to your wounded heart.

#### liberalla

(9,726 posts)Total love going on there!

(11,959 posts)As an owner of standard poodles I can assure you you are in for adventure. Our boys (two spoos) keep us on our toes and have us laughing at their antics often. They are never boring and are very athletic dogs, too.

I will bet your Bella will be just as fun to have around. She is super cute. What a face!

(6,321 posts)We lost our little Jack Russell two years ago. Got Jake the rescue Chihuahua shortly after. He was already 11 years old when we got him; he's a 10 pound dog with 100 pounds of attitude and we love him. He rescued us.

Never heard of that mix before

#### SonofDonald

(2,050 posts)I haven’t seen one like her before, now I know what to search for if I ever want another family member

I am owned by a Chihuahua/Jack Russel mix boy, he’s only 2-1/2 now so he’s probably going to outlive me but if not……

#### SonofDonald

(2,050 posts)Dogs and cats that aren’t quite as cute or as young out there that need a living family too

My little “Shadow” had two homes before he came to his forever home with me, he is cute and young but was mistreated badly by his first owner, his second couldn’t deal with his behavior and only had him one day

He’s been with me for a year and a half now and we are working through his issues but he’s never leaving his home again, he loves us unconditionally and that’s enough for us

Please adopt those who are unwanted, they need love too 🐕🐈⬛

(10,984 posts)Love Jack Russell Terriers. We had 5 Jacks at one time. When the last one of our pack died we waited a year before we adopted 2 JRTs from The JRT rescue group. Bella will bring you and your family much joy. She is beautiful.

(10,464 posts)The second pic…reminds me of one I have of my Roscoe, a Havanese, when he was a pup. Colors change sometimes. He also has the monkey toy, one of his favorites.

Enjoy the pup I love the smell of puppy feet, reminds me of Fritos.
