We have a 5 month old male JRT who seems to have a bit of an aggressive streak. He does not like to be disturbed when he is sleeping, and is not fond of strangers. Does anyone have
any similar experiences with JRT's?

sorry there are sadly so many idiots in here. We recently adopted a 4 yr old JRT, Willow, she was a big surprise to us as we were use to the much mellower pomeranians.
Her first day with us, she attacked our dominant pom, Pepe. So we started doing some very quick research on JRT's. They are very dominant dogs and it is not suggested that you have more then one JRT at a time. They can be trained, but it will take time and a lot of patience as they are also a bit stubborn.
a good place to start is JRT Central
http://www.jack-russell.com/mainmenu.html and this page http://www.terrier.com/breed/history.php3 gives you a good history and over view of the breed.
good luck Emotion: smile
they are great dogs, just very very energetic, intelligent, and easily bored... a dangerous combination... Emotion: smile

Easy - look at any post you've written. There's so much evidence there it's frightening...

They aren't dominant, so much, as they are very rank conscious.

In a lot of breeds, many dogs don't give a rip about status.

Most JRTs do. They'll be the alpha, or they'll be beta behind a confident alpha. They will not be an omega.

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. - Winston Churchill
jack russel terriors are just as the name says they are little terrorists on wheels. little dogs who think they are pit bulls.
