      About Jack Russell Terriers

      Bred to be compact, alert hunting companions, Jack Russell Terriers today are still very similar to their ancestors. These active, sturdy terriers come in two varieties (smooth coat and rough coat) and are not your typical lap dogs. Jack Russell Terriers are intelligent and learn quickly, are devoted and affectionate, and make good pets for an active family.
