Long title but its hard to describe.

I live with my girlfriend and we got a jack russell terrier last november i think shes a little over a year and a half old or so and being a terrier shes not to big. My gf has a dog that is the size of a pitbull i would assume i cant remember what type of dog it is, its something like boxer/husky and something else, her dog is considerably larger obviously.

Her dog has lived with her parents while she has been going to college, well her and i are getting a house with a large yard and will be taking her dog to live with us full time next month. She is very loving and as far as i can tell wouldnt ever hurt anyone/anything. My problem is when my Gf got her she was a pup (and now 3 yrs old) and she was dating someone else who wrestled around with the dog a lot and got her to play rough, not a big deal to me as i do the same thing with my dog and previous dogs, my issue is she is really hyper and loves to play all the time and im worried she might play a little to rough with our terrier and accidently hurt her. She plays with her parents cats and hasnt ever hurt them but im not sure how she will be around another dog.

So my question is

How can i teach her to be not so rough with our terrier? (keep in mind im not even sure she will be rough seeing as dogs will often play with other dogs differently than humans, im just covering my bases).

I would keep an eye on them when they meet, but I would think the Jack will be able to take care of himself. Dogs have a well developed language they use between each other, and the Jack will be able to tell the Pit 'its too rough' all by himself.
