Ronster

My female Jack only likes one person-me. Question-she stands or lays on my chest and will lick my lips non stop as long as I let her. I usually let her go as long as she wants. Just wondering if that is strictly affection or if its a sign of something else like nerves etc. I have a client who's Jack does the same thing. Is it common for the breed? Thanks

That is very very common with Jack Russell,s I have 2 boys Elvis and Patchie and Elvis licks me all the time and yes it is a sign of affection and it means that he loves you more then anything and you are his world,Elvis does it to me constantly and sometimes it is annoying and I cannot break him of it at all!Good Luck with your little guy and yes it is like it is bred into them!

Paddy also

Paddy has loved snuggling on my collar bone, since I got him at 7 wks. It was the only place he would feel comforted, when he was missing his mom and litter mates. He still bounds into my lap, landing just under my neck and snuggles there longer than any other time, loving to be hold there. He licks my neck some, but stops as long after a few licks, I wouldn't feel comfortable with him licking me that much, or not on my lips. I give him lots of carresses instead, and he loves his mini massages. I talk to him like a baby to distract him from the licking too..caressing his face.. Good luck!
