Jacairn History

The Jack Russell Terrier is a terrier originating in England. The Jack Russell is named after the Reverend John Russell, who is said to have crossed Parson Russell Terriers with Foxhounds to produce a more tenacious hunter. The Jack Russell is believed to have originated with foxhunting enthusiasts in rural England, and to have been developed from crosses between the Beagle, the Foxhound, and the now-extinct English White Terrier.

Jacairn Activity Requirements

Jacarandas are medium-sized, intelligent dogs that are descended from the Iberian Peninsula. They were originally bred as hunting dogs and are still used for that purpose today. While Jacarandras are not high-energy, they do require regular exercise. They live well with other dogs, but they can be fairly independent, so they are not recommended for first-time dog owners. An outdoor run with your dog or a good game of fetch will keep your Jacarandra happy and healthy. If you live with an active, athletic family, a Jacarandara may be a good match for you. But if you lead a more sedentary lifestyle, this may not be the best breed of dog for you.
