usually the dog is lying down or asleep and as soon as i or my sons...all adult...enter the room he jumps up, growls and then runs at our ankles...he doesnt actually bite and when he is scolded he starts to wag hgis tail and lick us.

Jack Russell nipping ankles
by: Robert

It sounds like your Jack has made this into a game/habit. The fact that he wags his tail when scolded confirms this. If you would like, you could crate him at night so that he can't bite your ankles or growl in the morning when you enter the room. You would be the one to let him out.
