You cannot have a jack russell with other animals.
They are going to kill, and even the sweetest ones still instinctively kill.
The only thing to do is leash them to go out to relieve themselves and keep them indoors, or get rid of them.
Jack's cannot be trained to not kill.
I know of one jack afraid of cats. Very unique dog too. But have seen him go after small animals.
One other suggestion, if you have time - might be shocking them with a shock collar if they get within a few feet of another animal. Some dogs will still pursue regardless, but it is an idea.
Golden retrievers are the best trained dogs around other animals.
I have raised 3 and i know they will protect smaller animals if they are raised with them since 6 weeks of age. Let them be around other animals and you have a guard dog for life.
I owned one who i raised with cats who was so gentle and concerned that he retrieved live baby rabbits to the house because the mom rabbit had died.
He also retrieved pet cats who tried to make a get away.
Retrievers are usually the most docile of dogs and yet most protective of children and other animals.
Which is why they are guides for the blind. Highly trainable, very intelligent.
Best of luck.
