On Saterday morning, my 9 yr old Staffie passed away tragically.
This place is so empty now, She was the only living thing in my life since she was 5weeks old, It has always been just her & me, sharing my bed, couch furniture etc etc.
I need to get another dog/ dogs to help fill this void. I will never forget her, I'm sure you know how they grab your heart & lives & fill them with a joy that some people do not understand.

My question is, would a staffie & a jack russell get along if they get bought together as pups, maybe I'll get a kitten as well. My previous Staffie grew up with a kitten , they were great, but that was a long time ago.

Hi Steve

Yes, a Jack Russel and Staffie can get along, just make sure you get a male and female and make sure you do not buy a hyperactive pup or an aggressive pup. You would be able to see this if you look at the parents. A kitten could also work well.

Good luck and sorry to hear about your loss.
