Jack Russells are first and foremost a working terrier. Originally bred to bolt fox from their dens
during hunts, they are used on numerous ground-dwelling quarry such as groundhog, badger,
and red and grey fox. The working JRT is required to locate quarry in the earth, and then either
bolt it or hold it in place until they are dug to. To accomplish this, the dog won't bark but will expect
attention to the quarry continuously. Because the preservation of this working ability is of highest
importance to most registered JRTCA/JRTCGB breeders, Jack Russells tend to be extremely
intelligent, athletic, fearless, and vocal dogs.  It is not uncommon for these dogs to become moody
or destructive if not properly stimulated and exercised, as they have a tendency to bore easily
and will often create their own fun when left alone to entertain themselves.

Their high energy and drive make these dogs ideally suited to a number of different dog sports
such as flyball or agility. Obedience classes are also recommended to potential owners, as Jack
Russells can be stubborn at times and aggressive towards other animals and humans if not
properly socialized. Despite their small size, these dogs are not recommended for the
condominium or apartment dweller unless the owner is ready to take on the daunting task of
providing the dog with the necessary amount of exercise and stimulation. They have a
tremendous amount of energy for their size,  a fact which can sometimes lead to trouble involving
larger animals. They may seem to never tire and will still be energetic after their owner has called
it a day. While socialized members of the breed are friendly towards children, they will not tolerate
abuse even if it is unintentional
