About Miniature Jack Russell Terriers
The Jack Russell Terrier breed was founded in the mid-1800's in Devonshire, England by a clergyman named
Parson John (Jack) Russell. Like many of his countrymen, the Reverend Russell had a passion for fox hunting.
The Jack Russell Terrier was originally bred not to kill the fox, but to cause it to run from any hiding
place so that the fox hunt could continue. The Jack Russell Terrier is now more popular than ever as a
lively, intelligent companion and a familiar sight around horse stables.
Jack Russell Terriers measure under 15 inches at the withers and their body length is proportioned to their
height. The color white should predominate (must be more than 51% white) with tan, black or brown markings.
They either have a smooth, flat coat or a wiry, broken coat. Their tails are docked just long enough to
provide a good handhold.
It takes 63 days for Jack Russell Terriers to have puppies which they usually do twice a year. Puppies
are weaned between 8 to 12 weeks old. Their average life span is 12 to 15 years. Here at Tanglewood Farm,
we raise a family pet type Miniature Jack Russell. They stand under 10 inches tall and weigh 10 pounds or
less. We have a very quiet , well-mannered, intelligent, devoted companion that gets along well with
other animals and children of all ages.
Here at Tanglewood Farm, we raise a very quiet, well-mannered, intelligent, devoted companion type
Jack Russell that gets along well with other animals and children of all ages. We do not raise the typical
go to ground "hunters" that many JRT's innately behave like. We breed for a conformationally correct pet
type Jack Russell that can live indoors and become part of the family.
We have litters of Jack Russell Terrier puppies available in the Spring and in the Winter around the Holidays.
They range in color from tan and white, black and white, and tricolored. They have either a smooth coat or a
broken coat. The parents stand under 10 inches tall and weigh 10 pounds or less.
