VetStreet.com: 14 Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of (but Will Soon)

Russell Terrier

The feisty Russell Terrier, like many of the terrier breeds, was originally employed for vermin control. Don't be fooled by his little frame: Although he only weighs 14 to 18 lbs., his intensity for life is huge. He's an active and intelligent dog with a strong hunting instinct, so early socialization and firm, consistent training are a must. He thrives in family with an active lifestyle, and is very devoted to the people he loves. Enter him in agility and Earthdog competitions and watch this little terrier put his big energy to work. He is a distant cousin to the Jack/Parson Russell Terrier.
