Jack Russell Terrier

Set of illustrations of the Jack Russell Terrier in seated and standing positions viewed from the side profile

A well-known member of the sporting group of dogs, the Jack Russell Terrier is a small, sturdy, agile pooch native to England. Originally bred by Reverend John Russell during the 1800s to hunt foxes, the Jack Russell Terrier has a similar history to closely related breeds such as the Parson Russell Terrier and the Fox Terrier. The Jack Russell is a mostly white-bodied dog with large patches of color across a short, coarse coat. Though similar in size to many toy group breeds, with a healthy weight range of fourteen to seventeen pounds, the Jack Russell is characterized by its slightly stockier build and is a committed hard-worker.
