Jack Russell Breeder is recognized as a purebred pedigree breed by most American Kennel Club. Jack Russell Breeder is a close relative of the Parson Russell terriers with only the slightest difference of height separating the two breeds. Both breeds are named after their originator Reverend John “Jack” Russell. Determining a Parson Russell terrier’s puppy’s coat type can be a challenging one.
Having some of the most unique beautiful Jack Russell you have ever seen, and your hand shipper is ready to fly your new jack Russell to you if you do not live too far west so find an experienced Jack Russell breeder who will be likely to correctly determine whether good or bad. A reputable breeder often only breeds one coat type, eliminating any guesswork. If possible, try to find a local breeder so you can inspect the puppies first hand. Finding a reputable local breeder or rescue group through a veterinarian, the American Kennel Club or the Parson Russell Terrier Association of America is highly recommended.
It is very difficult to determine the good or bad of a Jack Russell breeder. Usually coat type is determined by breeding. If both parents have smooth coats, the puppies are likely to have smooth coats as well. When picking a pup from a mixed litter, where one of the parents is a rough coat and the other a smooth or broken coat, the Jack Russell Breeder is often determined by chance and is good for you. Some breeders claim they can feel the differences in the types of fur. Occasionally pups from a mixed litter are obviously one coat or another. Other puppies may appear to have a particular type of coat, then change, with the true final coat not being revealed for several more weeks.
