The Parson Russell Terrier was developed in the 1800s to fox both above and below ground in the south of England. The breed was named for Reverend John "The Sporting Parson" Russell, who had two passions in his life: his ministry and his Hunting Dog. Their terriers were bred to work closely with foxes in search of clever foxes. Russell created them for independent problem solving, and to date PRT may have its own ideas about things.
