What Is the Difference Between a Rat Terrier and a Jack Russell Terrier?

I have a beautiful rat terrier, every day, when we walk- people ask me if she is a Jack Russell Terrier …help me…..

rat terriers are usually smaller than jack russels and there face shape is a little different, there hair is also different, jack russels can have wire coats and short coats, but they are still terriers so there temperament is the roughly the same, hyper hyper hyper

    Jack Russells have springs in their feet so they can do back flips. Sorry, I don't know the correct answer. I just boarded my shih Tu last week and there was a Jack Russell in the next run doing back flips continually! Such energy!
