The Working/Hunting or Hunt Jack Russell Terrier is a small dog which pursues its quarry into the earth. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the name dates back to at least 1440, derived from the medieval Latin "terrarius" from the Latin "terra" meaning (earth). The History of the Irish Black and Tan Jack breed goes back thousands of years where huntsmen in the Ireland and the British Isles used the solid-colored dogs to go to ground and ferret out pray. They have been known by names such as the Old English Black and Tan Terrier, the Irish Black and Tan Terrier and the Black and Tan Jack Russell. Today they're known as Black and Tan Jacks in Ireland. These Black and Tan Jacks Russell Terrier's continues to be well utilized on farms to control vermin. We have been breeding these fantastic Jacks for 10 years and are set out to promote, preserve, and protect the breed of the Original Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier.
Hunt terrier From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hunt Terrier (not "hunting terrier") refers to types of terrier dogs that were attached to British "hunts", horse-oriented social clubs devoted to chasing the red fox on horseback, following packs of hounds. The hunt terrier was kept for a variety of reasons, such as rat control around stables and kennels, and to run with the hounds to flush the fox from small hiding places. It might also be expected to flush foxes from underground dens ("going to earth" like a working terrier), or to act as a lurcher. They tended to be white in colour so as to be more easily seen by the hunter, but they could be any colour.
A small number of farms in Ireland and England valued the Black and Tan Jacks and continued to breed the old lines. For a Jack to become a good hunter, they need the ability to listen, learn, and the desire to work. Jack Russell’s have been known for these characteristics since their existence back when they were initially bred for hunting specific purposes. Jack Russell’s are extremely intelligent. Teaching a dog to hunt that already has this willpower, and prey drive will make the task that much easier. Jack Russell’s, like many dog breeds certainly have the capabilities to do incredible things if you spend time with them and work with them so that they understand your desires and the task at hand.
WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB "TERRIER" Originally bred to hunt Vermin and pests on ground and in water. Many go into holes underground to chase out prey. They exhibit Good Stamina, Courage, Determination and Loyalty." The Black and Tan Jacks do have an advantage over the white Jack Russell's as they have black pads on their feet which are tougher than white pads. They also have a slightly larger tongue so they will recover from work faster. The history of the Irish Black and Tan Jack is an old breed. The breed goes back to the 1400's where huntsmen in the British Isles used the solid-colored dogs to go to ground and ferret out pray. Through time and in different geographical areas of the British Isles, they have been known by names such as the Old English Black and Tan Terrier, the Irish Black and Tan Terrier and the Black and Tan Jack Russell. In the 1970's a few American breeders Hi-Hill's and Hamilton developed an interest and brought the Black and Tan Jacks to the United States. The Jack's color was nearly bred out of the coats in favor of the white-coated Russell Terrier breed. Reverend Jack Russell wanted a 90 percent white Jack. As the white Jacks are visible from 1/2 mile away and the Black and Tan Jacks tend to blend into the countryside and are hard to see on horseback or on foot.
Tally-Ho: The Hunt Continues with the Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier. If anything, hunting with today’s Jack Russell terrier, at least in North America, is an even fiercer battle. Owners will “hunt” their dogs by taking them afield, often at the request of and certainly with the permission of farmers and property owners who require varmint control. A Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier is a dog born to hunt and has the prey drive to get the job done. Whether this is for game and recreational waterfowl hunting or simply keeping other animals off the property, We have no doubts that they are great at it. A small number of farms in Ireland and England valued the Black and Tan Jacks and continued to breed the old lines. This helped to stave off the threat of this breed vanishing. We continue on for love of the breed and are dedicated to protecting The Working/Hunting Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier.
WIKIPEDIA JACK RUSSELL TERRIER Terrierman Eddie Chapman, who has hunted in Devon for more than 30 years, the same area that John Russell himself hunted, notes that, "I can state categorically that if given the choice, ninety-nine percent of hunt terrier men would buy an under 12" worker, if it was available, over a 14" one." A serious breeder takes the work of their dogs seriously, and a serious breeder will work their dogs at least a few times just to make sure they have the drive, the size and the temperament to actually do the job.
These Black and Tan Jack Terrier's also come in-solid red, solid tan, solid black or solid black with tan or red points. They also come in all three coat types, smooth, broken and rough coats. All three coats dense, hard and weather resistant. Although Parson Jack Russell was a founding member of The Kennel Club in England, but he never showed his own “fox terriers,” saying it was like comparing wildflowers to cultivated flowers. That sentiment is alive and well in the Jack Russell Terrier Clubs of Great Britain, America and Canada and elsewhere. These are not “all-breed” registries. The working characteristics of the Black and Tan Jack Russell are emphasized over a standard look for the show ring. In fact, the Jack Russell is not a breed in the strictest sense of the word, but a type—wild and not cultivated. The cultivated equivalent is today’s fox terrier, which couldn’t get into a fox hole if its life depended upon it. In light of that, the standard for the Jack Russell can be smaller like a fox in southern England or larger like a fox in northern England, but in either case, its chest must be spannable by an average pair of adult human hands. Jack Russell Terriers are a type, or strain, of working terrier; they are not "pure bred" in the sense that they have a broad genetic make-up, a broad standard, and do not breed true to type. This is a result of having been bred strictly for hunting since their beginning in the early 1400 's, and their preservation as a working breed. Phot Credit Joshua and Toni Thompson
