Breed origins

THIS BREED, Jack Russell Terrier, was originated in England around 1800. Thanks to the Reverend John Russell, who developed a style of Fox Terriers that suited his needs, those of a dog that ran with its foxhounds and could also be thrown to earth by the fox and other prey. These included two varieties basically with similar standards, except for some difference, mainly in height and proportions, the highest, built more square, known as the Parson Russell Terrier and the shorter, slightly longer, is known as the Jack Russell Terrier .
