The ANKC is partly to blame for the incorrect labelling and research of these breeds in Australia.
    If there are different registries and standards, then how can 'Parson' be just another name for a Jack Russell?

    I reckon that Parson has very long legs for a JRT.

    There's no arguing with some people, sometimes you have to just leave it alone. How important is it to make "brother fox" see the light? What if he lives in the USA or UK - a whole different set of breed standards might apply.

    The "Parson" is the original working Fox Terrier. It is the only breed of terrier that uses it,s voice to move it,s quarry. The Reverend John Russell, (1795 to 1883) was a west country clergyman who had a lifelong passion for foxhunting and breeding working type fox terriers. Arthur Heinemann (1871 to 1930) was the next great breeder of the working Fox Terrier who only used blood that could be traced back to Russell,s own stock. There is a 1910 photograph of Heinemann,s badger digging party and 6 terriers who are all clearly "Parson" type. This type of terrier has hardly changed in over 100 years. In the 1970,s the Jack Russell Terrier Club of Great Britain was formed to preserve this type and told the KC it would never allow the Jack Russell Terrier to be KC registered. The KC promptly changed the name to the Parson Russell Terrier for legal reasons and the rest is history so to speak. So why does a cross bred terrier from Australia lend it,s name to a deceased man on the other face of the globe who developed a completely different strain of terrier.

    The Reverend toke over what the Parson man started & name them as such. I have a copy of some journel notes of the reverands that state a Mr Parsons did start trying to breed them true to type but died before he completed his breedings. The reverend then toke over & it goes much as you have said above for the Parsons Jack but not the other Jack Russells.

    But it quotes them as two poeple, I am trying to get my scanner to work to upload the journal pages.
    It is very old though & maybe I missed something.
