A small and compact breed of dog, with a muscular neck and fairly narrow chest. The ears are triangular and fold downwards. Their tail is high set. The coat is mainly white with black, red, tan or brown markings.

Jack Russell Terrier Character

The Jack Russell Terrier is a friendly little dog, they are truly devoted to their family but do not make good watchdogs as they are too friendly towards strangers. They love to dig so gardeners need to be aware of this. What they lack in size they more than compensate for in personality.
