  • Overview

  • 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!
