I don't particularly trust JR's. They are SO popular over here, and have been byb'd to a point where they are unrealiably crazy for the most part. There are also byb's who are breeding drivey dogs to drivey dogs, and selling them as family pets. if there is any dog that should come with a warning label it is those ones.
