An informational catalog, or several catalogs, about Terrier.

This category of dog breeds is ill-defined because not all true terriers have the word “terrier” in their names, and not all dogs called “terrier” are true terriers. This list will contain all dog breed generally considered to be true terriers, with explanatory notes when necessary. It will not include crossbreeds. Please refer to the breed articles for more details.

List of terrier breeds

Explanation of special cases

Independent and national terrier Breeds

’’Breeds not recognized by any major kennel club. Includes breeds recognized by the national kennel club of their countries of origin only, and bona fide purebreds without any kennel club affiliation.’’
  • Jack Russell Terrier – Jack Russells are a difficult breed to classify, because of several hotly contested issues. Working Jack Russells have independent clubs, of which the Jack Russell Club of America is probably the most established and best known.

The definition of a Jack Russell Terrier, long considered a strain of dog rather than a bona fide breed, was the subject of intense debate right up through its official recognition in 1995, and the controversies continue to the present day.

One is whether the dog is from show or working lines. Another is that the breed standards for the Jack Russell, the Russell Terrier and the Parson Russell Terrier overlap to some degree, and there are slightly differing standards in different countries. The show Jack Russells are recognized by all major kennel clubs, though not under the same standard in all countries. Working Jack Russells have independent clubs, of which the Jack Russell Club of America is probably the most established and best known.
