The Jack Russell Terrier is a type of a working terrier that goes into the earth after quarry. They are described as a small, sturdy, balanced terrier that is slightly longer than the length of their legs. Since the early 1800's they were bred for their stamina, speed and agility, which enabled them to hunt anything from rats to badgers. They are tough little dog and are usually a happy and excitable dog that tends to chase anything that moves. They are a smart dog and need firm but not harsh training from an early age. They settle into family life well and make good watchdogs.

Grooming- low maintenance coat which only requires a brush and bath when needed. All coat types are easy to groom. To show, owners must strip the coat. Like the rough coat, the broken coated Jack needs to be stripped out also.

Exercise- they can exercise themselves in the back yard, but a good daily walk will also keep them fit and happy.

Health- This breed is fairly hardy but some can sometimes suffer from dislocating kneecaps and some eye problems.
