Canine Fashionistas! Jack Russell terriers have smooth, rough, and broken coats, which are somewhat water resistant. The smooth feels like a horse's hair, the rough is longer, harsh and prickly and the broken is a combo of smooth and rough for a decidedly whimsical look.

WHAT'S IN A NAME??? THE JACK RUSSELL, PARSONS, RUSSELL TERRIER CONFUSION

The whole Jack, Parsons, Russell Terrier naming conundrum is one confusing situation. Here's is what I've been able to decipher from the various info...

All three terrier types are considered different breeds and all three were originally bred by (wait for it Reverand Jack Russell). The Jack Russell, Parson, and Russell terrier,  The FCI (an international federation of kennel clubs) countries recognize them as the  Jack Russell terrier. In the US, the Russell and Parson terrier are recognized by the AKC, but the Jack Russell terrier isn’t. To keep from weeping and try to keep my SEO wits, I'll use Jack Russell Terrier with a smattering of Parson Terrier for pizzazz.
