Jack Russell Terrier

 

Origin:

 

The Jack Russell Terrier originated in England, but developed in Australia. The small size of the breed made it ideal to be carried on horseback in terrier bags, a requisite for certain terrain. The breed derived from the Reverend Parson’s fox working terrier strains, sharing many common characteristics of the Parson Russell Terrier. However, it must be noted the two breeds are distinctly different in body structure and height and have been maintained as separate breeds in the US and Europe.

History

The Jack Russell Terrier is a strong, hardy, earth-working dog. It is full of life and moves with confidence that matches his keen expression. The breed’s handy size, small flexible chest, nose, strong voice and fearless nature make it an excellent specimen to work vermin below ground. Its weatherproof coat may be smooth, broken or rough and is predominantly white with tan and/or black markings.
