Background: The Jack Russell terrier is a small terrier that had its origin in fox hunting. Originating in the early 19th century from dogs bred and used by Reverend John Russell, it has similar origins to the modern Fox terrier. John "Jack" Russell known as "The Sporting Parson” was an enthusiastic hunter and dog breeder as well as an ordained cleric.
The Jack Russell is an energetic breed which relies on a high level of exercise and stimulation, and is relatively free from serious health complaints. Due to their working nature, Jack Russell terriers remain much as they were some 200 years ago. They are sturdy, tough, and tenacious, measuring between 10 – 15 inches and weigh 14 – 18 pounds and are predominantly white in coloration.
Jack Russells tend to be extremely intelligent, athletic, fearless, and vocal dogs. It is not uncommon for these dogs to become moody or destructive if not properly stimulated and exercised, as they have a tendency to bore easily and will often create their own fun when left alone to entertain themselves.  The breed has a reputation for being healthy with a long lifespan. Russells can live anywhere from between 13 to 16 years on average.
