The Jack Russell Terrier is a loving and alert dog breed that enjoys playing games and loves playing with toys. An intelligent and obedient dog, the Jack Russell Terrier is a fantastic working terrier and companion for all. A small but wonderful breed, the Jack Russell Terrier has made friends with people from all walks of life, whether due to its excellence as a hunter or its loyalty and companionship.
The Jack Russell Terrier was first bred by a Reverend called Mr. John Russell, who was a hunting enthusiast. In his last year at Oxford University in the early 19th century, he bought a small white and tan terrier bitch, which he called Trump. This bitch was to form the basis for his breeding program. The Reverend wanted to breed a small terrier that had high stamina for the hunt, as well as being brave and able to chase out foxes that had gone to ground.
