Jack Russell Terriers, A.K.A the Parson Russell terrier, is a true terrier. That means he's bouncy, hyper, energetic, and crazy. First bred in England, Jack Russell Terriers originally had a job to bring down foxes. It isn't the easiest thing to find Jack Russells hunting down foxes today, though. These terriers are crazy. An example of this is when these guys are alarmed or hear an odd sound, they'll bounce up couches, they'll jump on top of tables, and they'll bark for couple of minutes. But sometimes it's funny to see them do that.
This terrier comes in a plush, wiry coat variety, and a smooth, short coat variety. Like most terriers, Jack Russells have "V" shaped ears. The tail is slightly medium in length. The final trait of this terrier is his courage. He's so brave because if he wasn't, he wouldn't be that good at fox hunting.
If you want this dog, be careful. They will outsmart you easily, and they do it on purpose. And when they know you can't handle it, they start to get naughty. They'll be a major havoc. This is why first-time owners should NOT have a Jack Russell terrier. Despite the breed's small size, he is very energetic. Daily exercise and running space is required for the breed. Jack Russell terriers do best with older children and adults. But overall, as long as you can handle them, the Jack Russell terrier could become the next dog in your life!
