Parson and Jack Russell Terriers is a book in Barron’s series of Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals. These friendly, outgoing dogs are known as Parson Russell Terriers in the U.K., and popularly called Jack Russell Terriers in America. These high-spirited dogs are devoted to their masters and make fine companions, but they are prone to mischief if they aren’t regularly exercised. Written especially to introduce inexperienced and prospective pet owners to the pleasures and duties of pet care, Barron’s Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals also make fine guides to pet care for older children. These heavily illustrated books are filled with helpful information on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care—and where applicable, grooming and training pets. Each book is individually written by an expert—a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. These manuals cover every popular dog and cat breed, as well as bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even exotics, such as reptiles, amphibians, and scorpions. All books have 70 or more color photos, and most also have instructive line illustrations.
