The Jack Russell Terrier is a small, sturdy, compact, muscular and well-balanced dog. It has a white or tan coat and patches of black on the head and neck, called “roan.” Its face is fox-like and its expression is alert. The Jack Russell Terrier has a medium length tail that is set high and carried over the back. The tail is never docked.
The Jack Russell was originally bred to hunt foxes in packs but today they are most commonly kept as companion dogs. They have been known to be very good at hunting rodents, vermin and other small animals such as rabbits or birds but this should only be done under supervision as it can be very dangerous for your pet if left unsupervised with prey that may injure them such as rats or cats.
They are extremely intelligent so it’s important that they’re given plenty of mental stimulation such as training classes or interactive games that will help to channel this energy into something constructive rather than destructive behaviour like chewing up furniture or digging holes in your garden!
Their coat needs regular brushing every week with a stiff bristle brush to prevent matting but make sure you don’t go too hard on the skin underneath.

The Jack Russell Terrier is a small dog breed of the terrier type that was bred as a fox hunter. It was developed in England in the 1800s and used to hunt down foxes in the English countryside. It’s a lively little dog with lots of energy, and it’s also very smart.
Because this breed is so small, it only weighs around 9-13 pounds (4-6 kilograms) and stands 10 inches tall at the shoulder when fully grown. It has a double coat with a soft undercoat and wiry outer fur that comes in many different colours including white, black, brown, red or tan with patches of another colour on its face and legs. Its tail is docked short and covered with hair while its ears are short and stand upright when alert or leaning forward when relaxed. The Jack Russell Terrier’s eyes are dark brown or hazel coloured while its nose is black or brownish-black with large nostrils that allow it to breathe even when running at high speeds through dense brushy areas such as those found in Australia where they were first introduced by British settlers in 1894 during colonial times; later on, they were shipped back home where they became popular among aristocratic families seeking entertainment
