These Jack Russell Terrier Calendars feature this small, agile, brave, principally white-bodied terrier that is known for fox hunting and other small animals. The Jack Russell Terrier's chest is the determining factor as to whether a terrier may follow its intended working attributes. If the Jack Russell Terrier's chest is too large, there is little use for quarry underground. The Jack Russell Terrier comes in two distinct variations: the long-legged version and the short-legged version. Short-legged Jack Russells are often called "shorties" and are recognized with the AKC-FSS as the Russell Terrier, or Jack Russell Terriers, while the long-legged variation is called the Parson Jack Russell Terrier. They are both small dogs and can be a variety of wiry, smooth, and multicolored coats. They are predominantly white, with patches of brown and black, often covering part of the face. The Jack Russell Terrier Calendars show they have short drop ears and a tail that is usually cropped just long enough to grab it out of a fox hole. They are sturdy and muscular, well adapted to work hard. Jack Russell Terriers often work so hard and are unafraid that a farmer gauged his terriers on his farm to live only about 6 years. Otherwise, living in a normal household, the Jack Russell Terrier can live as long as 16 years. At work, Jack Russell Terriers are a game hunter, tenacious and courageous. At home they are playful, exuberant and overwhelmingly affectionate. The Jack Russell Terrier is an independent and energetic terrier and requires their due portion of attention and training. They are highly energetic, interactive and love to play with children. The Jack Russell Terrier is the ideal breed for a fun-loving family seeking a hard working little dog. Jack Russell Terrier Calendars make great gifts.
