Moulting

(Kent)

My Jack Russell called Buster is an 11mths old. Since the end of Febuary he has been moulting. I brush him everyday. Can someone please tell me how long does this moulting go on for and when and how often does it happen.

Thanks
Barbara..

I just adopted a beautiful and darling rough coated JRT who came here from Alabama. I didn't want another cocker since I have had two the last 22 years. The grooming was tenuous.
I had the vet hospital give him a bath and after that he started losing hair. All his beautiful coat has thinned out so I can see his skin through his hair all over his body.
He is still wonderful and adorable.
Is this normal for the rough coated JRT?
I want him to get his beautiful coat back, not that he isn't still just georgeos.

As I was told (and we can attest with a short hair) JRTs shed hair only once a year, but it lasts for 365 days! Brush your JRT often and get a good broom!
