Parson Russell terrier

Generally, the Parson Jack Russell Terrier is a loyal, loving, and friendly dog with a good personality.


The Parson Russell Terrier had been the initial Fox Terrier of the Eighteenth Century. The breed is named after Reverend Jack Russell who acknowledged the development of this kind of dog. The Kennel Club recognized the Parson Jack Russell Terrier in Jan 1990 after efforts by the panel of this club, which was reformed in the early 80s.
