The Jack Russell Terrier is a small, compact agile, brave terrier, who is good at hunting small animals like foxes and raccoons. Like other terriers they may bore easily and are capable of inventing their own entertainment.

Jack Russell Terriers are a tough little dog who is clean and a convenient size for a companion. These friendly dogs are bold, athletic and clever. They are game hunters, tenacious and courageous at work, and at home they are playful, exuberant and overwhelmingly affectionate. This breed is an independent and energetic terrier and requires their due portion of attention.


White with black, tan or lemon or solid white.


They have a smooth or rough and broken coat. All coat types are easy to groom. Comb and brush regularly with a firm bristle brush, and bathe only when necessary. To show, owners must strip the coat. Like the rough coat, the broken coated Jack needs to be stripped out also.
