    Hi

    I have a 15 week old Jack Russell puppy called Holly who is adorable. She was in a litter of 6 rough haired Jack Russells but her coat is still quite smooth. Both parents had rough hair. Will she develop a rough coat at sometime?

    I think she is also teething at the moment, can anyone recommend anything to soothe the pain? She chews on a nylabone but they don't last very long (about a week!!)

    Thanks

    She could end up being smooth coated, it depends on her ancestry.
    were any of her grandparents smooth coated?
    Try frozen carrots or kong for the teething

    I used to put ice cubes in the Kong toys for Molly to numb the teething pain. xx :)

    No idea about JRT coats tho, sorry.

    When I got my PRT she was smooth-ish (approx 2 yrs old, and malnourished)and over several months of good food, her coat grew into a big ball - she looks more like a Westie now! So yours might grow too, I suppose it's a waiting game
