Publisher Comments:

The Jack Russell Terrier is more than a cute little dog, the Jack Russell Terrier is truly a breed apart. Its love for the chase, endless energy and devotion to its owner are just some of the qualities that make the Jack Russell Terrier such a special pet. Although easily trained and eager to please. Jack Russells are known to have a mind of their own?chasing a squirrel is simply more fun than coming when called, and lovers of the dog learn to be on their guard. No one would ever say that life with a Jack Russell Terrier is dull. Feisty, fun and full of mischief, Jack Russells bring a smile to all that they meet. It's no wonder that the breed is so popular. What other dog has such a big personality in such a little package? Welcome to the world of The Jack Russell Terrier: Courageous Companion.
