    I was told my dog was pure jack russell when we bought him but many people comment that he has a long tail and also one of his ears is always up.
    Does anyone have any ideas what other breed he could have been mixed with or what breed he might have historically in his genes?

    He looks more or less like a JR, the reason he has a long tail is because it’s not docked, now illegal in the U.K.. JR”s used to be docked.
    Others who are more familiar with the breed may be more helpful, it unless he was KC registered you can never know for sure

    I would say he's a Jack Russell. They do tend to come in all shapes and sizes.

    As regards his tail, all Jack Russells are born with full tails. Traditionally, their tails were docked, but that is now illegal.

    Although JRs should have pendant ears, you do see the odd one with erect ears, though it isn't desirable.
