The Jack Russell Terrier (also known as the Parson Russell Terrier) originated around 200 years ago in England and were bred to hunt foxes. This is an independent and lively dog with a charming demeanor. They are an intelligent and determined breed. They have a knack for learning new tricks quickly but they are clever, mischievous, and have a mind of their own, so early and consistent training is an absolute must. The Jack Russell Terrier is a devoted breed who loves their family. Their high energy levels make them a great fit for active families. Being a terrier, they love to dig, chase, and bark. They are escape artists and need a securely fenced yard. This fun-loving yet independent breed makes an ideal pet for experienced dog owners.
