The Jack Russell Terrier is named after the Reverend John Russell, a mid-XNUMXth century fox hunter in England who bred terriers to produce a dog capable of running as fast as a horse and catching and killing a fox . He was very successful and his breed almost immediately became popular with a number of enthusiasts. He was more popular as a working dog than as a show dog because he was primarily a hunting dog. However, Jack Russell Terriers are shown and do well, especially in field trials.
The Jack Russell Terrier measures between 10 ″ - 15 ″ at most. It has a flat skull, small eyes, small V-shaped ears pointed towards the face, and powerful teeth that form a level or scissor bite (preferably scissors). The Jack Russell Terrier has a flat back, a high, cheerful tail that is docked, and small round "cat paws". The forelimbs should be straight and strong; crooked legs can be an indication of Achondroplasia. Jack Russell Terriers must have chests less than 14 ”at their widest point. The Jack Russell Terrier is taller than it is long.
There are three different types of coat for the Jack Russell Terrier. He has smooth, thick hair, about a centimeter in length, all over his body. The rough-haired Jack Russell Terrier has a double coat up to 10 cm in length all over its body. The broken-haired Jack Russell Terrier is a mix of the two. All the layers are dense and coarse. Jack Russell Terriers are more than half white with gold, black, lemon, or tricolor markings. The markings are preferably limited to the head and the base of the tail.
The Jack Russell Terrier is courageous (sometimes overly), rowdy, attentive, happy, and self-confident. Owning a Jack Russell Terrier requires a great amount of patience; they are perfect for exuberant owners who are ready to entertain and exercise them, but are not suitable for everyone. Jack Russell Terriers are loving and gentle with their owners. But they will defend themselves against bad manipulation, even if they are mistreated by a small child.
The Jack Russell Terrier can be aggressive with other dogs and should be socialized when young if possible. However, he is still a hunting dog, so don't expect him to snuggle up to your gerbil or guinea pig. It is the natural hunting instinct that will kick in and could result in the pursuit of the family cat. He can try to dominate other dogs, regardless of their size. Jack Russell Terriers are fearless. Visitors will always be announced with a distinctive yelp.
All three coat types of the Jack Russell Terrier require relatively low maintenance. Jack Russell Terriers should be brushed with a rubber brush when shedding to remove dead hair. Sometimes the coat of the rough-haired variety will need to be plucked. Jack Russell Terriers are known for their good health and their long lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Puppies should be tested for deafness.
The Jack Russell Terrier learns quickly but will always try to go his own way. Consistency in training is essential. He will try to seduce you with his mischievous charm, but don't be fooled! Jack Russell Terriers are able to learn a variety of games and excel in events such as dog agility and Earthdog competitions. They require firm and consistent handling. The Jack Russell Terrier is a smart and daring dog.
The Jack Russell Terrier has a seemingly endless supply of energy. He must be given many opportunities to burn him. Jack Russell Terriers need to run and play, to enjoy agility skills, and to play catch. Digging, barking, and organizing breakouts is their way of telling you they need more exercise. Jack Russell Terriers are happiest on a farm or a house with a large yard where they can frolic and won't enjoy apartment living. Their hunting instincts are strong and they should be supervised if they are not on a leash and out of their yard, as Jack Russell's are known to follow prey and stay focused there for days.
