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.

My sister in law has 4 Jack Russell Terriers, and never have had a problem with them and her kids. The best dogs for families with kids, though, IMO, are labs or goldens. (Labrador Retriever or Golden Retriever). They are the BEST BEST BEST DOGS!

What to do about your jack russell getting bald spots What to do about your jack russell getting bald spots. Has skin allergies

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.

Jack's are known to live on average, 16 years, but with care and love and stimulation they often live much longer.

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.

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!

How do I train my JRT not to pee when excited?

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!

I wouldn't do it. You might even end up paying for a c-section and that could be a ton of money. Also you could lose the Mom and/or the puppies. Way dangerous.
