How far can a 7 years old jack Russell run ?

I have a 7 years old jack Russell and I took her for a run

She ran about 1-2 miles and didn't feel like running anymore so I took her home
She has been low in energy ever since
I provided her with water and shelter I also carried her home when she did not want to walk anymore
She is abit overweight so I decided to bring her for that run

Did I do something wrong or does she have some illness ?

Mine will run with me off in the trails for 8-9 miles no problem. I've never run less then 3 mi with her.

Jack Russell running
by: Brett

I think you might have gone a little bit too far for your Jack especially because she's a little over weight. Maybe next time try to build up slowly - maybe a half mile to start and then slowly but surely add on more. I'm a little overweight and out of shape and if I tried to run 2 miles it would definitely kick my butt too! Also to be on the safe side, check her paws to make sure she didn't injure herself by stepping on something sharp. Otherwise, she probably needs a little time rest and recuperate.
