Parson Russell Terrier
The Parson Russell Terrier breed was originally intended for hunting small game and burrowing animals, they had no equal in speed and ability to easily climb even into the narrowest holes. Today, this breed is mainly used as a companion dog.
It will be interesting to note that the structure of the dog’s body is such that holding or raising the dog by the tail does not harm her at all. This is due to the fact that the dog was pulled out of the hole by the tail when it found and grabbed, for example, a fox. The color and structure of the body of this breed is the same as that of Jack Russell, because of which these breeds were officially divided into two different ones only in 2001.
What you need to know about the Parson Russell Terrier breed
Parson Russell Terrier has three types of hair: short-haired, half-long-haired and long-haired. It is an interesting fact that in one litter of puppies all three types of wool can be present.
If you want to buy a Parson Russell Terrier puppy, then keep in mind that this breed has perfectly preserved its hunter instincts to this day, so they get along very badly with other animals, especially if they are small.
Parson puppies are very active dogs, they need to constantly run, jump and play. These pets are very strong and can jump up to two meters in an upward jump.
This breed is perfect for active people, athletes, and even for children. However, such a dog will be a burden to an elderly person, both physically and materially. After all, all the energy that Parson does not throw out on the street, he uses at home, and this can lead to pogroms and even injuries.
You must always remember that this is a hunting dog and, despite its small size, it is necessary to train. Caring for a breed is very simple: you need to brush your ears several times a day, comb out depending on the type of coat and bathe once every 1.5-2 months.
