Jack Russell overview

The Russell’s name is derived from a Victorian hunting parson, the Reverend John (Jack) Russell. The American Jack Russell Terrier and the UK’s Parson Russell Terrier are very similar, but, due to a copyright on the name ‘Parson Jack Russell’ US dogs are registered with the AKC as Jack Russell Terriers. American Jack Russell Terriers should not be confused with the UK’s Jack Russells, which are shorter legged. UK Jack Russells are very popular pets. Jack Russells may be smooth or rough coated. An intelligent breed that can become destructive when bored, they are not suited particularly well to urban living unless given a great deal of exercise and freedom.
