Overview
The Parson Russell Terrier was formally known as the Jack Russell Terrier. Originating in 19th century England, the Parson Russell Terrier was used to hunt small game, particularly fox.
Character
The Parson Russell Terrier is squarely built, agile, active, and independent. This breed is small, muscular, and well-suited for going to ground.

Does your Parson Russell Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Parson Russell Terrier breed is not recommended for first time dog owners. The Parson Russell Terrier is intensely energetic, spirited, and demanding. They are loving, devoted, and fearless. They will become destructive if bored or restless. They do best in a home with older considerate children. This breed is typically dog aggressive and does not do well with other household pets.
Care
Regular brushing and combing is recommended. Bathing should only be done when necessary. Professional stripping of the coat is required twice a year. Parson Russell Terrier's are prone to such health issues as Legg-Perthes, eye disease, and deafness.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Parson Russell Terrier has two varieties of coat: Broken and Smooth. Either coat is a double coat that is harsh, close, dense, glossy, and straight. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
The Parson Russell Terrier is intelligent and obedient. However, they are determined and willful. Early intense socialization and obedience training are crucial. This breed requires a dominant handler. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Parson Russell Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
A highly active breed, the Parson Russell Terrier requires an inordinate amount of exercise and activity. This breed does not do well in an apartment if left alone for extended periods of time. They do best with a securely fenced yard, provided the fencing is buried into the ground and of sufficient height to contain these diggers and jumpers. They thrive on and enjoy family activity, tracking, hunting, agility, and performing tricks. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Do Parson Russell Terrier' go well with other pets?

The Parson Russell Terrier is a wonderful family companion. But their owners must understand that the breed has a very large prey drive. Which means that they are prone to chase small animals. However, they can be trained to live happily with other pets such as another dog, a cat, a bird and/or a rodent. But precautions should always be taken and supervision is a must with this breed around small animals.

I have had 2, both rescues, and no issues. It is important to exercise them and be the pack leader.

Are there brindle colored Parson Russell Terrier puppies?

No, the brindle coloration of the Parson Russell Terrier is a disqualification from the show ring. So a qualified and reputable breeder will make sure that his/her stock does not have the brindle line in it at all.

I have recently been looking for a Jack Russell, and there are breeders in my area that advertise Irish Jack Russells, is this the same as a Parson Russell Terrier or Jack Russell?

They are the same, but Jack Russells originating in Ireland rather than England where the Jack Russell got their start. The Irish Jack Russell is of the shorter legged version. The Parson Russell Terrier is the longer legged version.

You should try feeding your Parson Russell Terrier meat, not raw but cooked.

Anonymous

All my Parson Russell Terriers love meat and vegetables, chubbs, tinned dog food and biscuits. You should not deprive any dog of vegetables! The best time to give them roughage such as broccoli, carrots, various peas in the pod etc; and fruit too, apples peeled and cored, pears are ok whole, shy away from citrus fruit and do more research on what is good and not good as simple things like grapes can be toxic to your dog. In the wild, they would eat grass and other forms of roughage to get the essential vitamins the require. This idea that dogs are strict carnivores is unhealthy.
