: Some of your readers may not know that in the UK, long-legged JRTs are already called Parson Jack Russell Terriers, and the short legged ones are just Jack Russell Terriers.

: They're all JRTs to me, though, whatever their official names.

: (Thanks for putting Foster in the gallery (he's currently 497 and 498 !!))

: Best,

Hi Chris,

You are right, that is how it is in several countries throughout the world and your post should help answer Ann's questions about the difference in names. Here in the US things are a bit different with the names.

What's so unique to our breed is the variation within it, no matter what they're called :)

And what a cutie Foster is! :)
