Welcome To
Augustyn Jack Russells

The original use for these dogs were to be hunting dogs. These days they function more as working and companion dogs. Their personality and temperament is lively, alert and active, notoriously fearless, happy and with intelligent expression. Little grooming is required – regular brushing is recommended to dogs twice a week. The broken and rough coat dogs do not shed as much hair as the smooth coats.

Their suitability as watchdogs is very effective. They are alert and often used with larger dogs for security purposes. They are very compatible with most other dogs. This is a natural hunting breed and should be properly introduced to other pets in the household. They can be noisy ONLY when they are bored and without stimulation.

They are excellent with people and children. Elderly people need to understand their energetic nature. They love people, especially children. Jack Russells are very intelligent dogs and can be well trained. The Jack Russell typically has good health. They are equally comfortable indoors and outdoors. As all pets they prefer indoors, but typically do not spend the day on the couch. They should be allowed to be in close contact with their human “family”.

Our dogs are registered with THE CANINE REGISTRY.

a Little about "US"

Augustyn Jack Russells (short legged wire hair) is owned by Jacques and Wilna Augustyn. We are living on the farm Kersfontein in the Malmesbury area, about 50km from Cape Town, RSA. We always had and bred Jack Russells (smooth coated), but when we met the short legged wire hair Jack Russells in 2016 we decided to start breeding with them. Our Jack Russells are companions 24/7. They are very intelligent, they talk to us, and know even what we think or plan to do.
