| Now keeping in mind that Jacks’ aren’t my breed, this is my understanding of it-
All these names (Jack Russell Terrier, Parson Russell Terrier, Russell Terrier, English Jack Russell Terrier, etc.) refer essentially to two types of the same breed originally simply known as the Jack Russell Terrier.
Standards for both JRT’s (by the JRTCA- the older club which is opposed to KC recognition) and PRT’s (by the PRTAA- the AKC parent club) call for a dog with ‘square and balanced’ conformation, ie. not a short legged, longer bodied dog.
The Russell Terrier (ARTC) is the shorter legged dog. I believe it is said the breed was developed in Australia because the Australian KC has longer recognized both types, however by their standards the shorter dog is a JRT and the taller dog is a PRT.
