The Jack Russell Terrier was born to hunt foxes. The dog’s namesake, Reverend John Russell, is credited with establishing the breed in the late 1800’s in Devonshire, England.

The Jack Russell is a people lover who should live indoors with the family. It's best if he has access to a fenced yard where he can burn off some of his abundant energy, and don't count on an underground electronic fence to keep your Jack in the yard.
