Appearance The Jack Russell is a happy, bold, energetic dog with a suprisingly gentle and kind nature.
Temperament The Jack Russell is a happy, bold, energetic dog; they are extremely loyal, intelligent and assertive. Their greatest attribute is their working ability, closely followed by their excellent qualities as a companion.
A Jack Russell can be equally contented bolting a fox or chasing a toy in your living room, or equally adept at killing a sock in the living room or a rat in your barn. Their funny antics will continually amuse you, their intelligence seems to know no bounds and their assertive nature and boundless energy can at times be overwhelming.
History Since their beginning, in the early 1800's, the Jack Russell was bred strictly for hunting. The JRT is a unique, versatile working Terrier. He is an intelligent, loyal and affectionate dog, keen, alert and always ready to go. He is also a match for any cat in his ability to catch mice.
Health If you are considering purchasing a Jack Russell Terrier, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
