With their feisty personalities, they aren't always suited to homes with young children or small pets. The breed can usually be socialised to get along with your cat, but may struggle to hold back from chasing wildlife they spot on your walks. However, you can prevent common dog behaviour problems through positive reinforcement training, exercise and giving your puppy plenty of interaction with other people and animals from around 10 weeks of age. Jack Russells vary in size, but they're generally small dogs and rarely grow bigger than 38cm in height. The breed is also usually so full of energy that they don't tend to gain weight easily. Any dog can become overweight with the wrong diet and lack of exercise, so vets recommend feeding a high-quality, breed-appropriate food twice a day and sticking to the portion guidelines found on the back of pet food packaging.
Parson Russell Terrier
The Jack Russell Terrier is a small terrier that has its origins in fox hunting in England. It is principally white-bodied and smooth, rough or broken-coated and can be any colour. Small tan and white terriers that technically belong to other breeds are sometimes known erroneously as "Jack Russells". Each breed has different physical characteristics according to the standards of their national breed clubs; size and proportions are often used to tell them apart.
Jack Russell terriers are tough, tenacious, athletic, and super friendly. This energetic dog was bred to be a working dog and still displays the cleverness that made it a highly-sought after hunting dog back in the early 19th century. If you own a JRT you know your pup thrives on attention and completing tasks. The Jack Russell terrier originally had a brown fur coat. The breed has since been renamed, sort of, three times.
