Jack Russell shaking
by: Anonymous

It is not unusual for Jack Russell's to shake. It's something within the breed usually with white small dogs. Sometimes it's called the White Shaker Syndrome.
It is usually harmless but unfortunately there is not much you can do for it, though steroids may help. However if this is a new behavior I would check with your vet just to make sure because sometimes shaking could mean that there is a health issue.
