      About Parson Russell Terriers

      These tenacious hunters were first bred in the South of England in the mid 1800's to hunt fox. Although very similar to their close relative, the Jack Russell Terrier, the main difference between the Jack Russell and the Parson is their size. The Parson Russell Terrier is a medium-sized (12.5-15 inches), friendly explorer who gets a long great with children and strangers alike. Their ideal companion is an active person with a good sense of humor, as these dogs are as amusing as they are clever!

      Did You Know?

      For his small size, the Parson has a lot of energy! He will need regular exercise and attention to stay in his best shape.

      Origin

      This working breed dates back to the 1800s, when namesake Rev. John Russell began developing the breed. The Parson Russell Terrier was mainly used to assist in hunting small game.
