Overview
The Jack Russell Terrier or Parson Jack Russell Terrier originated in England in the 19th century. Their name derived from the Reverend John Russell, a hunting enthusiast, who was the first person to breed them for fox hunting. The Jack Russell Terrier is exceedingly adept at digging and burrowing into foxholes and dens.
Character
The Jack Russell Terrier is sturdy, hardy, and robust in appearance. They are outgoing with a keen expression. They have an inquisitive nature. This compact breed is very vocal but is never "yappy". They are fearless and are completely unaware of their small stature.
Temperament
The Jack Russell Terrier is a loving and devoted breed. They are spirited, lively, amusing, and energetic. They get along with older, well-behaved, considerate children. They are not recommended for children under eight years of age. They do not get along with other pets. Their natural hunting instinct brings out their aggressive nature. They are highly intelligent and bold. Their courage often leads them into dangerous situations that may lead to fatal results. The Jack Russell Terrier requires an extraordinary amount of human attention. They are not well suited for a two career family.
Care
The Jack Russell Terrier requires minimal grooming. They need regular brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing should only be done when necessary. It is important to keep their nails trimmed regularly to prevent problems. They are easily over-fed and have a tendency to become overweight. The health issues that affect this breed include deafness, glaucoma, epilepsy, allergies, and skin problems.
Coat
The Jack Russell Terrier has a dense double-coat that comes in three varieties: smooth, rough, and broken. The smooth coat has an outer-coat that is short and stiff. In the rough coat the outer-coat is longer. The broken variety is used to describe both dogs with outer-coats of different lengths or dogs that have longer hair on specific parts of the body. The Jack Russell Terrier is primarily white with black, tan, or tri-color markings. They shed constantly.
Training
The Jack Russell Terrier can be difficult, determined, and willful. They require firm and consistent guidance, as they are easily distracted. It is important for them to know whom their master is or they will take charge. Early socialization may moderately temper their aggressiveness. Obedience training is highly recommended. The Jack Russell displays talents in such areas as hunting, tracking, and agility.
Activity
The Jack Russell Terrier thrives on exercise. They are very active indoors and require constant stimulation. They have the ability to adapt to apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, but do best with an average size yard that is securely fenced. They will become destructive if they become bored. They enjoy long walks and vigorous play sessions.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Jack Russell Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Food for Jack Russell mix I am having a problem finding a dog food that my Jack Russell/c=Chi will be happy with....any ideas?

A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! You can get sample bags and/or buy a small bag of the food to see if your dog likes it. If he/she does, then you can get a larger bag. Every dog is different and likes and dislikes certain meats. So it is up to you to find out what your dog likes and dislikes for flavor.

My Jack Russell had issues with allergies that caused itching & some patchy spots in her coat. I changed her diet to hypoallergenic & as well as sorting her skin & coat problems she appears healthier in every way & much easier to scoop her poop now too! 😄

Skin allergies are due to grains. Like people, they can be gluten intolerant. You need to put the dog on grain free dog food. I don't care what a vet will tell you, they want to cover symptoms with drugs, which further damages the immune system. Change your dogs diet. No more wheat, barley, rye or oats.

What is the difference between a Jack Russell Terrier and a Parson Russell terrier??

2 Comments

Honestly...NOTHING...It is a registery thing..AKC wanted to get away from the shorty JRs so they started calling them Parsons..If you do want a TRUE Jack Russell, get a JRTCA (Jack Russell Terrier Club of America) registerable dog. JRTCA is out to keep the breed true to what Rev. John Russell started. Alot of the AKC dogs were JRTCA dogs at one point, but due to certain circumstances they were either kicked out of the club or changed to AKC because of their opinions.
4/9/2013 1:51:49 AM

Jack Russell breeders resisted entry into the AKC for many years because the AKC wanted a specific standard for size, coat, etc. To true loyalists of the breed this was unnaceptable because they believed that breeding for specific traits of size, coat and confirmation would destroy the one trait that lovers of the Jack Russell treasure most...personality and hunting instinct. In order to accommodate the different sizes, the AKC first accepted the longer legged Jacks (between 12-15") as Parson Russell Terriers and the smaller Russell Terriers (under 12"). The JRTCA accepts Jack Russells of all sizes and still promotes the original characteristics of the breed.

Contact the breeder, they should be willing to take your Jack back..Any Jack Russell breeder should have recommended any kids under the age of 5 are not really an ideal home. If your breeder that you have purchased your JR from will not take him/her back, then try to contact Russell Rescue Inc and they maybe able to help you, but please don't put that Jack in a shelter. You should have really considered your environment before purchasing a Jack Russell or dog to make sure it would be a good fit for your home!

You can go to www.terrier.com and there are alot of good articles on how to help submissive or excited urination. You could also use belly bands or bloomers to start helping..It is all in a way of how you approach the situation. If you come up to the dog all excited and they are all excited, you just contributed to the problem. Also, depending on the age of JR too. If still a puppy, you will need to take them out more to empty the bladder better. If it is excitement urination, then you need to approach the dog calmly, not all excited..Just adding to the excitement does not help. Do check out www.terrier.com and the articles, I am sure you find them helpful!

JRT Should a JRT be given small dose of Aspirin for sprains? Weight is 17 lbs age is 7 yrs. Healthy, wonderful, gentle... Unless he gets out of his harness. Then it's a 2 hr chase, which he thinks is GREAT fun! It results in sore leg muscles. His name is Butler... Which is as close as I'll come to having a real one!

Sounds like you need to take him for "runs" not walks. Let him out in a big field and walk the perimeter with him. And yes, it will take 2 hours for him to "blow off" some steam, so plan on spending time with him exploring the fields. He's gonna run like a banshee at first, don't call him back... you just start walking and call to him, "Come on, I'm going this way". He'll come your direction, probably blast by you. You do this exercise a couple times a week, you'll be giving him the activity he needs and wants. Instead of chasing him for two hours, take him for 2 hour runs. As for sore muscles, you need to be giving him a good mineral supplement and add some EFA's to his food.

The dog has learned he can get attention by making noise. If he can't get good attention then (like a kid) he'll take bad attention. The only way to get him quiet is to catch him doing something right and reward him with what he wants. When he is quiet give him toys, food, attention. When he's noisy ignore him till he's quiet. He's smart he'll learn quickly that he gets what he wants by being quiet.

You can also discuss bark softening with your vet but it would be best if you worked with a trainer to learn how to train the behaviors you want. You're smarter than the dog, you can do this.

The question is why isn't she playful? Does she feel bad? Is she hungry or tired? Make sure she's not sick, not hungry, not in need of a bathroom break and not tired then offer her fun things to play with. Get her some stuffed toys perhaps, a ball maybe, a basted knee cap bone (always get treats made in the USA). Sometimes we have to accept our pets just the way they are. Yours may be a quieter animal. If you develop a relationship with your dog that fosters love and trust she will be playful when she's well and happy. One that is depressed may have some subclinical problem like protozoa and a vet check might be in order. Good luck

Clickers work great for Jack Russells. If you want a calmer dog, get a short Jack Russell as they were the little barn dogs and no so into the more active hunting dogs.

You really have to be firm with the jack russell breed. If not they will be telling you what to do instead of the other way around. When you find them chewing on something that he/she should not be, take over his/her favorite toy instead and he may realize that hey I have something fun to play with. Your JRT may still be cutting teeth as well. Never give up on your Firmness or they will outsmart you. I wish you much luck, they are wonderful pets once trained, I own one that is 3yrs. now.

You can do training at home. Youtube has some great videos on training. I personally like clicker training and they have some good videos on that. I think a lot of agility dogs use toys instead of treats for rewards. You might check out videos on agility.

I'd like her to stop and she keeps doing it. And how do I make her stop biting everyone and barking? I know that they are barking dogs, plus they are kind of agressive with other dogs. I have rodents and cats, and so far, she is not bothering the rodents, but the cats are another problem - she won't leave them alone and she keeps tackling them, forcing them to swat her. Was this a good dog breed, and how do I fix all of these problems that are sticking to me? It's difficult, and she won't stop peeing in the house. She hardly poops, but we keep trying to potty-train her and it's failing. Failure every time, too. The less she learns, the more we feel down-hearted. Help, please?

Hello, I find the more you walk her 1/2 hour after they drink water, the better they don't pee in the house. There are signs of going to pee which are smelling the ground. As for the barking at other dogs, that is a socialization issue. If puppy was not socialized, it will grow to be unstable, we have a puppy like that. We are trying to change her habits right now. It's extremely hard. Hope that helps.

Put some newspaper down for your Jack Russell Terrier. When she goes, take it outside near the door. Once she gets wind of it she should start going outside. They are quite hard to train but you have to stay on top of them. Dont' leave the food down. Feed her at a certain time, give her abt. 1 1/2hrs. and take her outside. These animals will chase anything. If you got her and already had animals amongst her thats' okay. When outside, thats' her territory! If she is biting others' give you a good smack on the rump, never the nose. They are stubborn so this has to be repetitious. Do not under any circumstance let her away with it. I wish you luck, one trained and not biting, she will be a very loyal pet to you and your family. I have a 3yr.old so I know whats' taking place.

I have never had a issue with him urinating in the house.

We have pads around the house where they often do this. They continue to urinate in other places as well. HELP I'M AT MY WITS END AND AM TIRED OF STEAM CLEANING MY CARPETS WEEKLY!!!! My jr also suffers from a serious skin irritation which compels him to scratch and chew his back side leaving scabs and sores, i hate to see him suffer so. We've tried benadryl and other hotspot medications and it always seems to reoccur. I have been told it could be seperation anxiety and the vet told me he thinks he is allergic to fleas as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Put your JRT in a small space with a pad, and leave it there for 2-4 minutes, and let it out to run around again. It may go to the pad he eliminated and eliminate again because of the smell of his own urine. Skin irritation may be caused by dog food. I reccomend you to not give it commericial dog food. Commercial dog food is garbage and could kill your dog.

Also, control. If the other dog is a male, he will control the pee spot. Walk walk walk. Some ppl get a kitty litter box and train the dogs. Works wonders and saves you lots. Another is diet as per the other persons suggestion. We take for granted our dogs can eat anything out of a paper bag. We here are more into holistic's and have made strides in changing one of our itchy pets dilemma's since environment can't be moved. Good luck.

We have been treating his condition "holistically" since August and have seen great improvement. However, when he chases his tennis ball, very different story. He was unable to urinate as he couldn't stand on either leg securely. I died inside and questioned whether we should have the surgery. We are currently giving him food with glucosamine, greenies (which contain green lipped sea mussel and 1000mg glucosamine), and takes a daily vitamin supplement by NuVet Plus Canine. I am considering a food by Dr. Gary's Best Breed that contains glucosamine and green lipped sea mussel. I don't want to give him too much glucosamine. He weighs 21-22#'s. Does anyone know how much is too much? Anyone hear of this dog food brand? Lastly, any suggestions on options vs surgery. This little guy is my "baby" as the kids are adults. Can't really afford to have the surgery. HELP!

Have anti- inflammatories helped? Reach out to U.S. Vet schools to see if the surgery may be done by teacher for student learning. We once adopted a horse who needed stiffel joint surgery. Cornell took her- there may have been some cost for medicine. Not sure.

Hi , In response to you question about JRT with sublaxating patella. I have a 3.5yr old female. She started limping when she was 2, took her to the vet, they gave a her a course of needles or arthrisits. to no avail. two months later took xrays found nothing obvious. Had a dog physotherapist. she diagnosed sublaxating patella, offered all the options, shark cartlidge, fish oil, diet change, massgae, joint stimulation. Pressively she has gotten worse , muscle wastage not using let now. Operation cost $900.00 to $3000.00, depending on the degree of damaged has occurred. From what I have read my dog is at stage IV. Not good. I don't think I can afford the op. But I don't want to loose a memeber of the family - great dog.

I would continue with giving your Jack Russell Terrier the Gluocimine if you notice it is helping. As for the dog food go to a Pet Store and see what their top brands are. You are going to have to use both until you can wean out his normal food. My JRT is approx. 22lbs. Do not get a Dog Food with beef. My vet told me nothing but chicken,lamp,rice etc. As he said you dont' know what is in the beef nowadays. They are very helpful and for the most part will not try and sell you something just to make money. I wish you luck, continue doing what you are, he seems to be doing fine. However if you should notice a change in him you may have to resort to surgery. I would buy the glucosamine tablets at Drugstore, give him 100mg. from there. He can take the same vitamins as we do. Think positive, it will work out in the end. You have already said he is doing better :-)

Be sure and contact the breeder as they should at least be informed so they don't breed the same dogs together again. Also they might have some suggestions. Keeping the dogs weight down will help some if he is overweight. I don't know much about the food as thankfully I have not had this in my dogs.

My male Jack Russel is sweet natured, about 2 and a half years, but still wee on everything in the house.I leave him outside to run with the Yorkie all day, they get along well. But as soon as he has finished eating, he lifts his leg and let go in the bowl. I let him out every time he ask, but he will play outside, take a few drops on flowers, and come and do it inside against the cupboard, on the floor, on the furniture. Why? It drives me mad. I have tried to gently tap him, take him out after that, but no effect.

Maybe you should try putting your Jack Russell Terrier in a small place with a pad. If that doesn't work, try buying a small cage and leaving him in there every night. He might poop and pee in the small place, and will basically have no room to lay down or sleep, causing him to howl and cry throughout the night, by ignore him. He will soon get used to holding his pee in the house.

We adopted a five month old JR from the shelter and have the same problem. Have you had any luck or changes since you posted?

you can get a dna test at a vet clinic that sponsers it. not sure were you purchased your pet but, they should have provided you with some information like male and female background. there is a clinic near kingston road hiway 2 does tests.
