You can train your Jack Russell puppies ears to fold forward.  Use breath rite nasal strips (or other light weight thin plastic strip) and eye lash glue.  Glue the strip to the underside of the ear horizontally where you want the ear to flop forward.  After wearing the strips to correct the ear position for a few weeks, your dog will keep his ears forward.  They eventually fall out or you can remove them with eyelash adhesive remover.  If the ears start to flop in the wrong direction again, apply the strips again.  Eventually the ear will set in the forward position.  Good luck!
