So you’re looking to adopt an Parson Russell Terrier, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “PRTs stand 12–15 inches at the shoulder, and weigh 13–17 pounds when in peak condition. Their intelligent expression, mostly white coat, and beautifully balanced body give PRTs the adorable looks of a plush toy come to life. But don’t be fooled by all that cuteness—PRTs are tough little guys built for England’s traditional sport of foxhunting. They’re fast enough to follow the hounds and fearless enough to dig into the ground and flush a fox from his lair. The Parson Russell Terrier is a bold and clever terrier, swift enough to run with horses and fearless enough to dig in and flush a fox from his lair. Independent problem solvers, PRTs can have their own ideas on how to go about things.”
An Parson Russell Terrier typically ranges from 33.02cm to 35.56cm in height, and weighs from 5.8967008100000005kg to 7.71107029kg.
