Breed Description: The Parson Russell Terrier, also commonly called the Jack Russell Terrier is a small, medium-boned dog with muscular hind legs, a strong neck and docked tail. Initially developed to hunt small quarry, this breed's small, flexible chest, long body and adequately long legs, enable it to pursue game underground or trail hounds during overland pursuits. This dog breed is lively and alert and makes an excellent companion for adults or children.

What food should I not give miniature Jack Russels?

By Terry

March 14, 20150 found this helpful

Don't give them the cheap grocery store food if you can help it. Grain-free, soy-free food is probably best, or a high quality natural food with rice but no wheat, corn or soy.

Unseasoned, uncured cooked meat is fine at times, but don't give human food like grocery store roast chicken, deli meats or bites of fast food burgers. No chips, cookies, hot dogs, etc. no matter how much they like it.

Don't feed grocery store type treats that have a lot of ingredients like corn, soy, textured vegetable protein, meat by-products and artificial coloring. Don't feed any treats that come from China.

How do I know if I have a mini Jack Russel Terrier of a Fox Terrier?

Your canine vet should be able to tell. Also, Google Image Search is your friend:

JACK RUSSELLS -

http://www.goog  1024&bih=654

As you can see from the two sets of images, generally, JRs have a shorter, stouter, short haired body with shorter legs; FT are a little taller with longer, leaner, bodies and legs and their coats are made up of longer, more coarse hair.

How and when did you get your pet?

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
He is having his 12 th birthday Sept 25th 2016. I would like to win him a prize. He goes to work with me everyday and is a great protector. He is an amazing dog and a part of our family in every way.

Duke (Jack Russell)

CommentPin It! Like this photo? 26

Duke is a seven year old Jack Russell. There was an ad in the paper, and my Mom and I went to look at the puppies. The lady said that Duke had not been sold, and she was asking less for him because he did not look as good as the other puppies.

Sadie has been one of my best friends since I was 11 years old. She is a specialist at scaring away monsters, and waking me from bad dreams. Though she has never had any pups, she is a full blown momma. She loves children and will nag you if there are any crying.

I lost my Hayley Girl 11/30/2010, and I'm still missing her! She had been fine at Thanksgiving and five days later, I lost her. We had been for a long walk just the day before, which she so loved, and had missed, since my Mother has been so sick.

Sproetjies (Jack Russel)

CommentPin It! Like this photo? 7

Sproetjies is a 1 year old Jack Russell. I bought Sproetjies from a pet store in November 2011. I often go to pet shops to cuddle the small cats and dogs, and when I saw those two big eyes, I just couldn't resist. Sproetjies likes sneaking into the house. Whenever you are looking for her, you can just go and look ~ you'll probably find her curled up on my bed. She also likes chasing birds, eating plants, and running after bugs. She is a very busy dog and has enough energy for three dogs! Sproetjies likes to be the center of attention. She does not like it one bit if one shows affection to the other dogs.

Dicey came from the preacher's house, where a litter of puppies were born next door. My son named her Dicey because she had 3 dice shaped markings on her when she was born. She has been a faithful pet over the years. I can't think of not having her.

My cat Tarbaby was missing and thinking the pound might have picked him up I went to the local shelter looking for him. That's when I saw her big golden brown eyes peering out at me from a very small cramped cage.

Frangelico (AKA Frannie) is 2 1/2 years old. She is supposed to be a Jack Russell. My daughter and I were running errands and just by chance stopped to see the animals at the humane society. We adopted her that day, thinking she was 6 weeks old, but she was actually only about 3 weeks.
