Just got my self a Jack Russel. Got my self into a discussion on another forum about the breed and use by ph's in South Africa. I discovered that there are a bit of controversy about this breed, also in South Africa. My questions then are: What type of Jacks are most ph's use; the real Jack Russel as breeding standard from JRTCA in US or the FCI approved Russel terrier or shortie? And how common are Jacks as working dogs for ph's?
