The Jack Russell Terrier is the modern descendent of the hardy terriers developed by the Reverend John Russell in the early 19th century.
Energetic owners with high garden fences who are looking for loyalty.
Keen gardeners as these little dogs love to dig – and they'll dig up everything!

Small enough to carry when necessary.

Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.
variable (smooth, spikey)
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
