Brief History of Jack Russell Terriers – Parson Terrier

In the mid-1800s, a hunting person named John Russell bred terriers of a suitable type and temperament to hunt fox in England.

The original fox terrier was the same type that Reverend Jahn Russell bred in the 1800s, but when it became recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), its conformation quickly changed to suit the whims of the show fancies. Eventually, it evolved into the deep chested, narrow-jawed, straight-shouldered show breed known as today’s Fox Terrier. John Russell continued on to breed his own strain of fox terriers for fox hunting, known today as the Jack Russell Terrier. These terriers were loyal, intelligent, well conformed with straight legs, well balanced, and small-chested

Our goal for the last 40 years has been to continue in the tradition of the Reverend, breeding Jack Russells with small chests, the finest conformation, outstanding working ability and temperament, and most importantly, to maintain the integrity of the breed as it has been for more than 100 years

It is important to note that it is the responsibility, integrity and dedication of the brooder to maintain the wonderful qualities of the Jack Russell. We have hunted my terriers in the US and England, and know the attributes necessary for maintaining this unique breed.

It is the integrity of the breeder and their dedication to maintaining the conformation attributes required for working that will ensure the maintenance of the breed. It’s the breeders that control the destiny of their respective breeds. If each breeder truly knows the Jack Russel Terrier they would never attempt to change a breed that is so unique in personality and enjoyment.

Puppies are usually available, adults are occasionally available, and stud services are available to approved bitches.
