Parson Russell Terrier

parson russell terrier dogAs cute as this dog is, he might not be the right pet for your family.  The Parson Russell Terrier has a stubborn streak and does not get along well with children unless they are really well-behaved.

Personality & Behavior

  • He’s loyal, courageous, tenacious and unbreakable
  • He’s independent-minded and can be very stubborn
  • He’s tough-as-nails
  • He’s extremely energetic and must get plenty of exercise daily
  • He has a tendency to be aggressive with other dogs
  • He’s utterly fearless and will take on absolutely any dog who threatens him – even one ten times his size
  • If bored he will often turn destructive to entertain himself
  • He has a high prey drive and will chase any small animal that moves
  • He’s highly alert and aware of everything that’s going on
  • He loves to dig
  • He loves to bark
  • He’s only good with well behaved children who know not to tease him
  • He’s very protective of his family

Grooming & Shedding:

  • He sheds quite a bit but his medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because he sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home.
