Parson Russell Terrier

A true working terrier and named for its founder, the Rev. John Russell, who developed the breed in the south of England in the 1800’s, the Parson Russell terrier had one purpose: to hunt with foxhounds and bolt the red fox from its lair. A medium-sized, energetic terrier with a keen hunting instinct, the Parson Russell is a wonderful companion and family member when properly trained. While he enjoys success in the show ring, the Parson also excels in earthdog, obedience and agility events.
