I just got a jack russell terrior two days ago, he is 8 weeks old. and all he dos is sleep! he sleeps most of the night and during the day he lays around and sleeps, i can pik him up and he falls back to sleep no matter what is this normal
Puppies of course will sleep a lot. However; being that this is a Jack Russell we are talking about, keep monitoring him. They are about the most energetic dogs there are, but, if this keeps up at a chronic level, have him checked. He may have a health issue worthy of being checked out.
Most puppies play a lot also at 8 weeks and as they get older (10-12-14 weeks……..etc.) but, being lethargic is NOT good.
You may want to check with your Breeder or other Jack Russell Breeders or JR Dog Clubs and contact some owners.
Better to be safe than sorry. I hope the little fella' will be and is otherwise okay!
