Their All Jack Russell Terriers
People give them all sorts of names, but they all go back to the "Foundaytion Stock" that was started in England in the 1800th centrey
They were bred to be small hunting dogs.
The outer Appearance
Jack Russell Terriers are a small dog that can rang from 7" to 14" Tall
and weigh from 6 lbs to 30 lbs.
The average Short Leg Breeder, breeds 9" to 10" Tall Jacks
The average Standard Leg Breeder, breeds 12" to 14" Tall Jacks
They can also have different length of legs that rang from dwarf to short to standard. There are three different types of coat or hair types. Smooth Coat, Broken Coat, & Rough Coat. And then there are the ear sets, they can rang anywhere from a drop ear to perked ears to stand up ears. Most Short Leg Jack Russell Terrier Breeders will not make any guaranties on ear set, along with other qualities, once the puppy goes to their new owner. This is because every Jack Russell dog is unique.
Each Jack will have its own personality and look, "much like people do".

Dwarf legs - Is some times referred to as a "Puddin Jack"
This type of leg would look like Dashoundlegs.
This type of leg can weaken the back and possible cause back problems.
Dwarf legs can also cause overly bowed legs. A little is excepted, but a good breeder will strive to have as good as possible body structure.
All puppies are cute, but bad health means Vet bills.
Chose your JRT Puppy Breeder wisely!
"Puddin legs can be shorter than this."

To understand who they are, you must go back to how they came to be in the first place. In the original making of the Jack Russell Terrier, they wanted a dog that could and would be a go to ground hunting dog. They wanted a special size and hunting ability. Thus the Standard Leg JRT was born. But in order to achieve the abilities that would be required, there was a short leg dog (not sure of what dog) in the mix. Thus some short leg puppies appeared among the standard leg Jacks.
And as it goes (Breed Short Leg to Short Leg and you get Short Leg) - (Breed Standard Leg to Standard Leg, you get Standard Leg)
The Short Leg Jack has the same heart, for the hunt as the Standard Leg Jack, but the difference in leg changes the type work of each .
Now remember, the Short Leg JRT was to short to chase after the Fox or that size game, so he was chosen to do the go to ground tasks of around the barns, Mice's, Rats.
With a lust for hunting, there was know place where a varmint could hide. These little short leg dogs will hunt diligently to track a varmint out from under a log, out of a whole, from under the porch, and they will wait for hours to catch or chase off every unwanted intruder on the property. And they love every minuet of it.
