Jack Russell suddenly biting
by: Justin

Since your sister's Jack Russell is suddenly biting out of the blue - I would have her take him to the vet to make sure everything is ok medically (the vet can't put him down unless he is really deemed to be a danger to society).
Many times dogs bite because they are displaying dominance and they don't know their place in the pack. Because your sisters dog has already done some damage I would look into getting a pet behavioralist as soon as possible so that no one else gets hurt (once he is cleared medically).
