Parson Russell Terrier

Parson Russell Terrier The Parson Russell Terrier breed is one of the newest breeds, an offshoot of the Jack Russell Terrier family of dog breeds. Like other Jack Russell Terriers, Parson Russell Terriers tend to be very, very energetic and active. The Parson Russell Terrier's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Parson Russell Terrier dog breed is essentially a Jack Russell Terrier except for a few physical differences. Jack Russell Terriers are known for their tendency to be extremely energetic and active. They generally need lots of exercise, and may become hard to deal with, even aggressive, if they are forced to be sedentary. There has been a problem with Jack Russell Terriers in general being abandoned by families who did not manage to keep up with them. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home. The Parson Russell Terrier's Physical Characteristics Here are some of the characteristics of the Parson Russell Terrier breed as determined by the American Kennel Club's published breed standard.

The Parson Russell Terrier's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia. Country/Region of Origin: United Kingdom Original purpose: fox hunting, showdog Name: "Russell" from John "Jack" Russell, who preferred Jack Russell Terriers. The name "Parson Jack Russell Terrier" had been trademarked, so the American Kennel Club avoided using the name "Parson," relenting in 2003. Historical notes: The Parson Russell Terrier breed was the first variant of the Jack Russell Terrier to be recognized by the Kennel Club (UK), which happened in 1990. Like the other Russell Terriers, the Parson Russell Terriers are descended from fox terriers and are named for John "Jack" Russell, who preferred this kind of breed. This very new breed of dog is still evolving.
