Parson Russell Terrier

 Formally known as the Jack Russell Terrier, the Parson Russell name is now recognized by the American Kennel Club. The strong head is in good portion to the rest of the body. The muzzle is strong and rectangular. The breed was named after a clergyman named Rev. John Russell. They were used as a small game hunting dog particularly for red fox, digging the quarry out of its den in the mid-1800s. On English hunts, the dogs needed to be long-legged enough to keep up with the hounds.
