My name is Denny Chapman. My wife and I became interested in this breed by chance when we went to buy a couple of Jack Russell Terriers. We arrived at the kennel and were welcomed by the owner where she showed us some Hunt terrier puppies, and in the process we came across two pups she was babysitting for her mom. We immediately fell in love with the dogs and began a lifelong relationship with the breeder. My wife, Lori, had previously been professionally involved with the AKC, showing, breeding and judging Miniature Pinschers. We are now picking up where she left off with this new breed. Through our research, we have made friends all over the world while discovering the story of this breed from its origin to its near extinction, and to its comeback and what it is today. The origin of the Hunt terrier and the Jack Russell can be traced back to the Irish Hunt Terrier a mostly solid colored black and tan dog with few white markings. They were used during hunts, their short legs allowed them to go underground in burrows to flush the fox out of their hiding spots. The JRT was created from this terrier and was purposefully bred to add more white into the coat so hunters could distinguish between dog and prey in the field. The Hunt Terrier as it is known today continues to be developed in Great Britain, New Zealand, Belgium and the Netherlands to name a few. They are primarily used for stable work for mice and rat control and for family companionship. The dog is known by many names besides Irish hunt terrier and hunt terrier they are called solid Jack Russells, Solid Colored Jacks and Miniature Jack Russell Terriers (MJRT). Abroad these solid colored Hunt terriers are still being crossed back with traditionally marked Jack Russell terriers and the results are dogs that may or may not have more white than the originals. These dogs are not bound by color - all are considered Jack Russell terriers with and without white markings. Whether you call them Jack Russell Terriers, MJRT’S or Hunt Terriers they do come in all colors and coat types, and all dilutions of those colors - however the Original color was Black and Tan with minimal or no white markings. The height range for these dogs has a large span of 8 inches to 12 inches tall and 1.5-2.5 inches longer than tall because they were bred to suit the needs of the family, different jobs called for different sizes. They will weigh approximately 1-3 lbs more than their height at maturity when in fit condition. Today they are used primarily to keep the farm free of vermin and for family companionship. I hope you enjoyed learning about these little dogs and warm wishes for finding your new family member!
