Parson Russell Terrier...


The Parson Russell Terrier was recognized by the UK Kennel Club in 1990, and the American Kennel Club in 2001, under the name Parson Jack Russell Terrier and Jack Russell Terrier, respectively. The Parson Russell Terrier is descended from early white-bodied fox-working terriers used in the hunt field. At the end of the 19th Century, these dogs were drawn into the Kennel Club as "fox terriers," but their still-working antecedents were referred to as "Jack Russell" terriers throughout the 20th Century, in honor of the Rev. John "Jack" Russell. The Parson is a bold and energetic happy go lucky terrier. They often do well with people who possess those same attributes, as well as patience and a sense of humor.

The coat of the Jack Russell Terrier comes in two varieties, smooth and broken. Both have coarse double coats that are weatherproof. The broken coat is harsh with a tendency to curl or wave, while the smooth coat is short and dense. The smooth coated Jack tends to shed more than the broken coated one. Both should be regularly brushed with a firm bristle brush.
