Yep, my friends Rod and Nicole had an awesome corgi Jack Russell mix named Logan. Unfortunately he just passed away last week at age 13. He was the light of their lives, and mine as they let me take him on trips. Here's Logan!
He's got fu-man-chu whiskers, which cracked people up. He's the most affable and lovable dog.
Here's another picture of Logan.
I"m really sorry to hear about Logan! He was a good looking dog! Looks like he traveled well too!
As for the Fu-Man-Chu... Dakota has one too! it doesn't show up well on her pick but it's there; people laugh and comment on it as well.
Their get dogs! so my condolences are sent to you and your family. Logan looks like he had a great life!

This is Dexter at his first party. He loves people and was a huge hit. I like that I can take him anywhere.
Pirate is now 4 months old and weighs around 16 lbs. Any idea what he could be mixed with?
Your puppy is adorable. Guess what! I think I may have an answer for you. I think your puppy is the same mix as my dogs Rocco and Nola. Your dog looks much more like my Rocco -see photo - but with terrier hair.
Rocco and Nola are American Stafforshire Terriers and Jack Russells. When my vet told me this, I thought, "Great, a terrier mix." Well, kind of. American Stafforshire Terriers are one of three types of beautiful, loving dogs with a terrible bad rap; Pit Bulls.
Get ready to be licked constantly, met at the door like you've been gone for months, even if it's only been an hour or two, and take time to socialize your puppy. This is the most important and necessary thing you can do for your dog. ALL terriers are known for being over-protective of their owners and full of energy. I'm sure you're aware of this by now.
Your dog will need plenty of exercise and socialization. My dogs benefited from Dog Day Care tremendously as well as two park play dated daily with other neighborhood dogs. Be sure to buy Kong balls because any others will be quickly chewed up and could be swallowed.
You have your best, most loyal friend for life. Just be patient. These breeds take time to mature. My two are five and are finally calming down to the point that they actually listen to us now. But, in the long run, it's all about unconditional love. Nothing else matters
My name is Lester. I would like to adopt Priate. He is 4 months old. Where are you from ?
This post was 2014 so Pirate is no longer a puppy. You will have better luck finding a dog in your local area.

Toby is a 10 week old Jack Russell Terrier/Rat Terrier mix. We rescued him from the animal shelter. He was getting ready to go to puppy rescue that same day. He loves to play with and bother our 65lb Black Lab, "Missy".
Chico is a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix. We got him in September of this year from a local pet rescue. He likes to sniff out and kill critters. He just got a mole in our garage last week. He also likes to run. He'll run around the yard really fast about 50 times when it's a nice day outside. He's the cutest, smartest, funniest, strongest little dog in the world!
We think he's a magic dog too, because he looks like other animals at different times. When he curls up to sleep, he looks like a little deer. When he jumps, he looks like a monkey. When he's running with his nose to the ground, his backside looks like a pig. When he stretches, he looks like a cat and even makes a catlike noise, like meeeeewwwwwwowrrr. Maybe he's a shape shifter.
AnnaSophia Marie-Antoinette (Sophie) is 18 month old Jack Russell Terrier/Affenpinscher. I adopted Sophie from the Humane Society of Charlotte in July 2008. I had recently had to return a rescue dog to its first owner and I was heartbroken. My family went to the Humane Society the week after I returned Abbey while I was at work and found Sophie. They sent me a picture message on my cell phone and I fell in love with her instantly.
Sophie plays endlessly. She loves to play fetch, tug-of-war, or just run around for fun. She never gets tired. She also loves to take long walks around the neighborhood and playing with the children. She gets along great with my family's two Golden Retrievers who are both more than four times her size.

Scruffie is almost 4 years old and a Jack Russel mix. I got him from some friends that were divorcing and was gonna dump him at the pound. He likes to play chase with our cat Casper and bark at the squirrels. He sleeps with our cat Casper in a doggy bed.
Lucky Lou Trotter is about 10 years old. He is a Jack Russell and terrier mix. My son and his then wife adopted him from the shelter. When his wife left, they decided that Lucky should stay with Rick. Then I moved in and Lucky adopted me as his human pet!
Lucky is not really a dog, he thinks he is a cat. Cats will chase him! He never barks at strangers, he even covers up his poop with dirt, just like a cat! My cat really acts like the dog!
Lucky loves to go for walks, and to watch kids play. He is just a remarkable dog! I tried to send this in yesterday, but I could not get on! So, "Happy St. Patrick's Day" one day late!
Editor's Note: I'm so sorry we didn't get this cutie up closer to St. Patrick's Day. Most posts take about a week to be edited and set up for publication. I will put them up out of order if needed, but I missed Lucky.
I got Flenters when he was only four days old. Due to financial difficulties, a young couple had to sell all their dogs in front of our local supermarket. We could only buy Flenters, as we had other dogs at home. I had to hand-rear him with a doll bottle that I bought at a toy store. We have always been very close.
I got her from a rescue center two weeks ago. She likes to eat everything, shoes, couches, baby toys, and her own tail.
Abby and Corona are both 7. Corona is a Jack Russel and Abby is a Rat Terrier and Springer. Both were looking for new Homes due to their owners not being able to keep them.
