Jack Russell terrier Description
  The Jack Russell Terrier is a small, compact, athletic dog that looks like a less refined Fox Terrier. The skull is flat between the ears, then tapering. The stop is defined, but not abrupt. It has a black nose and dark eyes that are almond-shaped. It has v-shaped ears that fold foward. Its body is flexible and had a fairly small chest to enable it to go to the ground after his prey. It has a docked tail that is carried gaily and set fairly high. It comes in varieties of smooth, broken, and wired-haired. The broken coat is a cross of rough and smooth coat- long body hair, a slightly fuzzy face and a smooth head. The Irish-type called Jack Russell Shortys have shorter legs that the English-type.
