Jack Russell Terrier

We just learned about the type of dog the Yorkshire Terrier.

Another type of dog is called the Jack Russell Terrier.

These dogs are small and energetic, and were used to hunt foxes.
They were small enough to chase a fox into it's hole, energetic enough to keep up with a fox, and also obeyed well and just chased the fox instead of biting it.

There is a famous painting of a Jack Russell Terrier looking into a phonograph, that has been used by some companies as their picture.
