Jack Russell overweight NEW
by: Susan

It's hard to know without seeing your Jack, but 3 stones sounds like a lot for any small breed. The general rule of thumb regardless of body style is you should be able to easily feel the ribs but not see them, when looking down upon your dog they should have a waist behind the ribs and they should have a bit of a tuck up behind the ribs when looking at them from the side. If you are worried about his weight, I would check with your vet. It's important that your Jack not carry too much weight because that could lead to some major health issues.
