Jack Russell Terrier

He digs, he barks, he runs, he jumps. The Jack Russell (or Parson Russell if you live on the AKC side of the fence) is hardwired to be active and needs a full-time activity director to keep him busy in constructive, and not destructive, ways. He does best when he is kept busy hunting rats on a farm or competing in terrier races and earthdog tests. Jack Russells can even make great jogging partners, but some joint and neuromuscular problems can occur in the breed, so get a healthy go-ahead from your vet first.
