My name is Reverend and this is my new smile! ! My namesake is Parson John Russell, an esteemed fox hunter in England. In the mid 1800’s Parson Jack developed his terrier. To flush out foxes. Hunters carried my ancestors in saddle bags. My new breed (2012) is a mouser! Short Hair Smooth Coat Jack Russell Terrier. AKC recognizes his breed as, Russell.
