Above all activities, The Parson Russell is a splendid companion, whether it be snuggling on a couch, walks thru the park, games of fetch. Parson Russell Terriers are playful, affectionate, fun-loving companions. They are also high-energy terriers with powerful hunting instincts. An ideal day for a pet Parson Russell Terrier would include a long walk in the woods, where he could explore every hole and sniff every tree trunk. They’re not the first breed we’d recommend for life in a city apartment, but we have heard success stories about urban Parson Russell Terriers—but it does take time, commitment, and imagination to make it work.
