Jack Russell personality
Jack Russell terriers (or JRTs) are clever, bold and energetic little dogs, making them a popular companion. They tend to be adventurous dogs and are known as expert escape artists, so make sure your garden is well-fenced to keep them out of mischief. Lively, curious and fearless, it's easy to see why the Jack Russell terrier was popular as a hunting companion in Victorian times, happily disappearing down rabbit holes to bring back game for their masters. The Jack Russell makes a loyal pet, but having boundless energy means they can often get into mischief if bored.
Jack Russell terriers are high-spirited dogs who love to play. They get bored easily like other types of terrier dogs, but they tend to invent their own games to keep them occupied. They are devoted to their owners and love children.
The Consider Uggie campaign was launched in 2011 to get Uggie, the JRT who featured in the film The Artist, an Oscar for his performance.
