The Jack Russell Terriers' history began with a man named Reverend John Russell. He was commonly referred to as Parson Jack.
The Jack Russell Terrier breed started with a small white Fox Terrier…a female by the name of "Trump".
Trump was breed specifically for hunting, a task requiring great stamina, intelligence, spirit, and conformationals.
The Jack Russells were breed to handle difficult trails, small tunnels, and hidden dens to flush out game.
The Jack Russell Terriers have three distinct hair types. They are commonly referred to as the smooth coat, the broken coat and a
slightly wire-hair texture. Their coat should be no less than 51% white. Jack Russell Terriers are found in two sizes. They are either
10 to 12 inches tall or 12 to 15 inches tall. The Jack Russell Terrier’s body should be proportional to its height. It should be compact,
yet well balanced and athletic in appearance. Their tails are often docked at birth to about 4 inches and should be carried proudly,
and high in the air. Their paws are generally small, well padded and should point straight, not angled out. Jack Russell’s ears are
usually folded forward and close to the head.However, some admirers prefer ears that are pricked
or sticking up slightly.
These little dogs are packed full of energy! They are best suited to those with a very active lifestyle. They are extremely social and
require a good bit of attention. They should be a house or inside dog but it helps to have access to open spaces to burn off excess energy.
TheseTerriers were breed to be hunters, so they love to chase toys and balls or go for a long run.Since they are a hunting
breed, they help keep pests away… but should be supervised around other pets such as cats, hamsters, and other small animals.
Jack Russell Terriers love children and they are generally considered safe with all ages if they are raised with the children and trained
properly. They are fun loving, playful dogs and will entertain you with both their intelligence and their antics. However, children under
the age of six years old should always
be supervised around dogs.
Jack Russell Terriers have become increasingly popular due to their fame on recent movies and T.V. shows such as Frasier,
Jim Carey's Mask, Gene Hackman’s Crimson Tide, Disney's Wishbone, and My Dog Skip...just to name a few!!!
The home for my adult jack russell terriers was built March-May of 2005 It boasts 10 outside runs, the smallest being 11 x 90 feet and the
largest 30 x 93 feet. All 9 outside runs have access to their own inside area where they can go to stay cool/warm depending on the time
of the year. In the summer, my dogs have fans full time blowing on them and in the winter there are heaters and a wood burning stove
to keep them warm.......
Inside you will also find cabinets to store doggie items in, a wash basin (perish the thought!), and a hot water heater to make the water
more suitable.... oh, the life we must lead...........
Do you have any type of "Guarantee" for your dogs?
I guarantee all my dogs...period. If for ANY reason the buyer is not satisfied, they can return the pup and EXCHANGE it for another.
After all, sometimes personalities just don't mix, and sometimes the pup just doesn't meet a person's expectations. However,
I obviously can not guarantee it against outside forces or negligent care that could result in the harm or death of a puppy.
For example, if the pup arrives at his or her new home and is exposed to a virus and contracts it and becomes ill or debilitated
from it... or the pup has lived in an abusive situation. I make every effort to screen out those people that would provide such a home.
What are the prices for the Jack Russells? Does it vary?
My pups start at $700 for Companion Pet Quality........ $800. - $1500 for breeding quality.
Puppies are priced according to their bloodlines and outstanding breeding quality. Pricing often depends on the parents, the quality
of the pup and the way it conforms to the breed standard, conformation, coloring, or the coats. My prices do not depend on what the buyer
plans to do with the pup (breed or spay/neuter), but rather the quality of the pup.
How old are the pups when you let them go to their new home?
Most Jack Russells are released after eight weeks. Some I keep longer. This depends on the situation it is going to be placed in.
Sometimes the prospective owner may be spending some time traveling or be "out of pocket" and not ready to accommodate a new
pup in their home and I don't mind keeping the baby until his/her new owner is ready. I also like to make sure the pups have had at
least two vaccinations before traveling to their new home.
Do you ship your dogs? If so, on what airline and how much will it cost?
Shipping on Delta Airlines usually runs around $230.00. Crate and health certificate are included in the price of the pup. Every once in
awhile I can find a ride going in that direction and some pups are delivered that way if they ride with dog minded people.
Are your dogs good with children?
All of my dogs have been great with children. Jack Russells have a lot of energy and every once in awhile I get a pup that is more
aggressive or dominant than the others. When that happens I am much more careful to place that pup in a suitable home.
As I watch the pups grow up, I can tell which pups will be more/less aggressive. The more active a pup, usually the more aggressive a
pup will be. This is not ALWAYS the case, but many times will follow this pattern. Carefully continuing to watch the pup will help determine
how aggressive a pup will be. You can also watch his/her behavior with siblings. More dominant pups will control their siblings. Usually the
pups that are the last to come out of the crate are more shy and will not be as aggressive.
I usually spend more time with these pups to make sure they get the proper socialization.
In rare cases, some pups do more become more aggressive over time. This is usually due to their environment and can be corrected in
most cases with recognition of the problem and steps taken to correct it.
What is the required deposit to reserve a Jack Russell Puppy?
A $300 deposit will guarantee your placement of a pup.
For your convenience we offer Secure On Line Payment Processors
The final amount is due at six weeks or before the pup is delivered.
If personal checks are written, please allow two weeks
before estimated shipping date, as check must clear bank
before pup is delivered. Please DO NOT ask me to do otherwise. The check should be made out to me:
Jana Crawford, and mailed to the address on the bottom of each page.
Which is better: male or female Jack Russells?
This is a matter of personal preference and it should be decided with each individual. Most people will state their preference to the
sex of their pup. It is really a matter of personal preference and I usually try to honor the prospective owner's wishes. If a person
does not know which sex they prefer, they usually just follow their heart on which pup steals it.
Also, what is your adoption process for the Jack Russell Pups?
I really like to talk to the person on the phone adopting the puppy. I want to make sure that the persons adopting a pup are ready
for a jack russell terrier - not everyone is. They are not for everyone. If they want a dog that constantly wants to be a part of their
life and they have time to spend with a dog then jack russells are a great reward.
The history of the Hunt Terrier is both old and new. Huntsmen in the early 1800's
England and Ireland used a solid colored terrier known as the Hunt Terrier. These dogs were bred by terrier men who selected stock
based on "gameness" or hunting abilities. A hunting breed, not a show dog, little documentation such as pedigrees or breed history
was kept on these dogs. Good dogs continued to be bred by dedicated terrier enthusiasts and Hunt Terriers were undoubtedly used
in the formation of several more modern terrier breeds. It was the Hunt Terrier that was mixed with a White English Terrier to form the
The future of the Hunt Terrier remains unclear. There are not many, but those that own them are passionate about keeping them around.
The HTCA is working to build our registry and take the Hunt Terrier into a major kennel club in the future.
Hopefully, with kennel club acceptance, the Hunt terrier will gain the recognition it deserves!
How to care for your new jack russell pup.............
People have different circumstances that enable them to take care of their new jack russell puppy in different ways. However, there
are some standard practices that should be utilized when bringing a new jack russell puppy into your home.
1. Make sure your home is "puppy proof". Just like babies, jack russell pups will get into just about anything. Things that can be chewed
easily, wires, things that can be easily swallowed are just some examples of things that need to be removed before your new jack russell
puppy comes into your home.
2. Purchase a crate. If your pup does not already have his own crate, it is a good idea to purchase one. It needs to be small enough that
he can fit into it comfortably but not large enough that he can soil one end and sit on the other. IF he learns that he has to sit in his own
soil, he will learn more easily to hold it until he can go outside.
3. Purchase good food. I feed Iams Pro Active Health Puppy. It is not a really expensive food and they do very well on it. I am sorry, but
Old Roy just doesn't cut it for me. It needs to be a quality food made by a quality pet food distributor.
4. Purchase a harness for your jack russell puppy. Harnesses are much easier to use in training your pup to lead and they are not so easy
to get out of . Buy one that will fit your pup. You can get one that can be adjusted way down to fit your pup, but if needed go to a smaller
size. Your pup is worth the price of a good harness.
5. Be consistent. When you are potty training your jack russell puppy, be consistent in his training. Don't take him out one time and then
the next time it is too cold or too rainy so "I will just let him go inside this one time and take him out next time". You must be consistent
and your pup will learn to potty by what touches the bottom of his feet. If it is carpet, then it will be carpet.....
6. Spend lots of time with your new jack russell puppy. Nothing makes a better dog than human companionship and nothing is more
rewarding that a jack russell that loves you will all his heart.
7. Consult others when you have problems. I will answer any questions that I can and if I don't know the answer, I will ask someone that
I think does know. You can always learn more about your jack russell puppy. It is an ongoing process throughout your life and his.
8. Take good care of your new pup. When he needs shots/deworming, do it. Keep your jack russell puppy on heart worm preventative.
It is some trouble but MUCH less expensive and less heartbreaking than your jack russell puppy carrying heart worms and having to be
treated to get rid of them. It does not hurt for your pup to be checked once a year for health's sake. Just like you, a checkup might
prevent future problems.
9. LOVE your jack russell puppy. This is your new companion for many years and the love and devotion you give your new jack russell
puppy will be paid back many times over in the love you will receive in turn. It is true....once your go jack, you won't go back!!!!
10. Teach others about your new jack russell puppy. When you have company, let them enjoy your pup as you do, but do let them know
what is acceptable behavior for your jack russell pup and what is acceptable behavior for them with your new puppy. Nothing is more
frustrating that for you to work so hard with your pup only to have someone else do damage to the relationship/training you have built
with your new jack russell pup.
I hope you find this information valuable and please let me know there are other things I should add to this list.
