Do you have Parson Russell Terriers over there? I have seen many JRTs here in Singapore and hardly any Parson Russell Terriers other than my own. Anyone care to share pictures of your Parson if you have any or where in Malaysia can one get this breed?
IMHO, I think it is always good to see who are the puppy's parents, this will give you an idea of how the it will turn out when it grows up.
It is also important to get a JRT or Parson that meets the requirements in breed's standard. My experience is that the cute puppy may end up with various faults or illness that will surface only very later in the puppy's life. In addition, having a good temperament JRT or Parson is very important owing to their nature.
Agree with DS_1 , its not easy to have a show standard JRT or Parson, especially most of them ended up problem with ears and legs. Cant really see a puppy when they are too young, anything can happen during their growth.

do agree wit u but like chery said it's quite difficult 2 see wen they're still a puppy unless it's very obvious. as i'm not in2 showing my dogs, i'm just glad tat i can give them a loving home regardless of any short comings d puppies mite hv. v accept humans wit all their faults & i think v shud do d same 4 our beloved furkids. it's all bout good basic training & loads of love..... cheers
Here's something I found over the Internet ... Just thought I'd share it with you guys ...
" Quote :The name of the Jack Russell Terrier was changed to the Parson Russell Terrier effective April 1, 2003 as requested by the Jack Russell Terrier Association of America, which was changed to the Parson Russell Terrier Association of America. "
Do note that in FCI countries, the Parson Russell Terrier (used to be called Jack Russell Terrier in US) is a separate breed from the Jack Russell Terrier (the shorter legged, more patchy Asutralian imports).
In other words, PRT is PRT. JRT is still JRT. They are 2 different breeds.
However, under JRTCA (Jack Russell Terrier of America. www.terrier.com), PRT is still known as JRT. JRTCA is not afiliated with any kennel clubs and thus is not subjected to the name change.
