The bottom two photos are going to be the toughest! The top ones are doable! This is what I would do if I were in your shoes...
Study some generic photos of Jack Russel terriers...both the long hair and wire haired variety...work out some sketches and then try some with the features these two have...in poses that are like they should be...on the level and not from above. Do the same with the Norwich terrier...study the breed and then do some practice sketches...study that dogs features...eyes, size of ears, etc. You have to take the standard and then mold that drawing into the client's dog. I'm working on a portrait riught now of a horse...really big photos...super clear, but very unflattering on every level. So I'm studying that horses features...length of back, heighth of withers...his long head...and creating my own pose that makes him not looks so homely!
You can do this, it's just going to take a little more extra research to get 'er done!
