Meet Dillon

Jack Russell Terrier, 5 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍼 Lives with children

My favourite thing about Dillon is...

He's so funny, adores children and people. He's my friends dogs therapy dog as she's a rescue and is scared of all dogs except Dillon, he gives her confidence and taught her how to play.

The biggest challenge with Dillon is...

His constant barking at any noise.

The most surprising thing about owning a Jack Russell Terrier is...

How very affectionate they are.

What I wish I’d known about Jack Russell Terriers is...

They are constantly on high alert.

Did you know

Reverend John Russell who developed the original Jack Russell terrier in the early 1800s was a founding member of the Kennel Club, and also bred other types of dog – however he never actually wanted the Jack Russell terrier to be a recognised breed, preferring that they were bred to fulfil a working role, rather than to a standard appearance. It is for this reason that the Jack Russell, while one of the most popular breeds, was also one of the latest to be recognised by the Kennel Club.
