About The Jack Russell Terrier

An energetic, medium-sized dog, the Jack Russell is a highly-intelligent, highly energetic working terrier. They were originally bred in the mid to late 1800′s by Rev. John Russell of Devonshire England. Renowned for their exceptional hunting skills, JRT’s are tough, fearless, and relentless in pursuit of  their prey. They have wonderful temperaments, and make great family pets when properly cared for. If you are considering the purchase of one of these exceptional dogs, it is very important to carefully consider whether you have the time and facilities to properly care for a Jack Russell Terrier.

These dogs require plenty of daily exercise and outdoor activity. With sufficient exercise, the JRT makes an affectionate, loyal and well-behaved family pet, but cooped-up in an apartment by themselves, these terriers can become “terrors”! Don’t buy a JRT on a whim, but if you have the time and facilities to devote, owning a Jack Russell Terrier can be the experience of a lifetime!
