The Jack-A-Poo is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Jack Russell and the Poodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Beauregard, the Jackapoo at 9 months old. "He weighs in at a hefty 16 lbs, and boy does he like to throw his weight around! He's very smart, so we can't put anything over on him..... and has learned to "talk". He vocalizes distinctive "words" (mama, out, play ball). While it's not quite English he can definitely communicate what he wants. We call it "Beau speak"."
