Parson Russell Terrier Information
This is a dog that thrives on action and adventure. In the process, it often finds itself in the middle of trouble.

It can be scrappy with strange dogs, but is better than many terriers. It does well with horses, but it may chase cats and is not good with rodents. It may tend to bark and dig. It makes an ideal companion for an active person with a good sense of humor who wants a lot of entertainment — and mischief —in one dog.
