Gran Bretañaa FCI 12 - Large and medium sized Terriers

Non-hunters who want to keep Fox Terrier as a pure companion dog, they must divert their innate hunting instincts with the sports and games of dogs

History

The first fox terrier, which were first presented at an English dog show in the mid-19th century, they were almost white dogs, especially suitable for fox hunting. Due to his courage, their endurance and ability to track and reach the foxes hidden in their burrow, little terriers soon found a large following among England's hunting and dog lovers. thanks to his physique, the intrepid dogs were able to get into the tubes Fuchsbau narrower. The purpose of breeding for fox hunting was also always the main focus when selecting suitable breeding dogs and ultimately gave the dogs their breed name Fox Terrier. (Fox = Zorro, terre = Earth).

In 1876 the newly founded Fox Terrier Club introduced the first breed standard for the Fox Terrier. Today the FCI distinguishes two variants of the Fox Terrier: the Fox Terrier Smooth and the Fox Terrier (wire). Although both types of dogs only differ in the structure of their coat, are kept separately.

At the beginning, the straight hair variant of the fox terrier was much more popular than the Fox Terrier (wire). But, this changed in the decade of 1920, when a real boom developed around the Fox Terrier (wire) and the little dog “practical” became the new “fashion dog” for the fine ladies. Unfortunately, often forgot that the Fox Terrier was originally bred as a hunting dog and that the animals still possessed a lot of courage, hunting instinct and a certain sharpness.

Lack of education and inappropriate attitude gave dogs, who liked to dig gardens and seldom avoided a fight with other dogs, the reputation of being scathing and aggressive. In the middle of the last century, the number of entries in the breeding book, especially from Fox Terrier (wire), noticeably decreased. Today, twice as many are born Fox Terrier Smooth that the Fox Terrier (wire). Today, the traditional english dog in both variants belongs to the rather rare dog breeds.

The versatile hunting dog can be used to build and rummage, to recover, to search or even to work in the water. His desire to work, his courage and vigilance make him an invaluable hunting companion. Non-hunters who wish to keep the Fox Terrier as a pure companion dog, they must divert his innate hunting instinct with dog sports and games and thus offer him a suitable alternative occupation.

Parson Russell Terrier

The Parson Russell Terrier is a fearless dog, very happy, energetic and friendly.

History

The Parson Russell Terrier it is a small to medium sized terrier. It's a hunting dog.

Although this breed of dog is very young in modern dog breeding, the Parson Russell Terrier is very close to the old and classic type of a terrier in character and appearance. Terriers form a large group within dogs. Its name is derived from the Latin “Terra” for the earth. So they were dogs for work on the land. The first evidence is given by the ancient Romans. Already in the Middle Ages terriers are described in detail. His homeland is in the British Isles. Terriers existed throughout the country. In the stables they kept small vermin at bay. Even the big rats were not a problem for them. The hens, pigeons and rabbits protected them from martens and foxes. To keep chasing foxes, the terriers were sent to the trench.

The Parson Russell Terrier of today are made exactly for this purpose. They should and could get the fox out of the hole. At the same time, they had to run with the fox hunts in the pack, that is to say, they had to be able to follow the gallop of the hunt. All of these tasks require enthusiastic commitment, special courage, independent thinking and the so-called sharpness of predators.

The Parson Russell Terrier turned into a versatile hunting dog, it's not only suitable for underground work. In the 19th century the English shepherd Jack Russell he was a successful hunter, rider and above all breeder of Fox Terriers. In his long life as a breeder he greatly increased the performance of the Fox Terrier. They were now fit for all individual hunting tasks, they could work in the pack and in the den at the same time.

In Australia, only with the help of their dogs could a plague of foxes be contained. To thank this, these dogs were finally named after their breeder, the Parson “Jack Russell” Terrier. They were and are physically and mentally raised for work, no show dogs. So breeders and lovers of this terrier for a long time refused to join the system of modern pedigree dog breeding., because they did not want to see dogs evaluated primarily on their appearance and feared the negative consequences of the show business on the fitness and health of dogs. This has done this breed of dog very well..

Seriously raised, these are dogs that were largely spared from hereditary diseases and extremes in breeding. The “Jack Russell Terrier” had from the beginning a wide range of sizes, rather short-legged and rather tall. Since performance was decisive, such refinements had no role. Now two dog breeds have been made from “Jack Russell Terrier” and the two lines have separated in breeding. The little one is still called Jack Russell Terrier, It has a height at the withers of up to 30 cm and is provided a little longer. The Parson it is a little taller and with more legs and in its rather square shape. Parish priest is in English another word for “Pastor”. So two breeds of dog are named after one person, el pastor Jack Russell. Both dogs are a credit to the Shepherd. In 2001 the new race Parson Russell Terrier was officially recognized.

Physical characteristics

The Parson Russell Terrier It is suitable for the working dog, Active, agile, built for speed and endurance. It gives the impression of balance and flexibility as a whole.

You can have hair smooth or hard if it is thick and dense to protect it from the inclement weather, like cold and damp. Its color It can be entirely white or predominantly white with brown spots, lemon or black or any combination of these colors, preferably stains should be limited to the head or the birth of the tail.

It measures to the cross between 33 and 36 cm., their weight approximate is of 8 to 10 kilos to be slightly larger in proportions that the version of the Jack Russell Terrier, though it should be specified higher copies exist as “Jack Russell” in some clubs working in United Kingdom and United States, due to what these clubs do not form part of the FCI and therefore, handle different to the recognized standard registers and accepted worldwide by the 84 member countries.

Character and skills

Parson Russell a fearless and friendly Terrier.

This breed was bred to hunt, Chase and corner foxes in its burrow, therefore, they carry in their genes, and if this activity does not form part of the life of your puppy, We recommend that, they should be exercised daily intensely since they are dogs with a huge dose of contained energy.

Perhaps its character lively and friendly has caused it to be one of the dog breeds preferred by many people as a pet.

But in reality it is a true working dog and we should not forget that if a specimen of... becomes part of our family..

Leave running, ride a bike, launch frisbee or ball - and teach him to bring them back-, It will help to strengthen the bond between the Parson and his owner while it educates, enjoys and is exercised.
