Jack Russell Terrier

Bred to go to ground to hunt vermin, the Russell Terrier is a small, robust dog with a confident personality. The breed has three coat varieties: Smooth, Broken and Rough. Energetic, curious and playful, he is a good match for active families. The keen, intelligent Russell Terrier thrives on being outdoors and needs plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. His dense, weatherproof coat requires minimal grooming.
Living Considerations
  • Good with older children
