A granny was left ‘in the dog house’ when she told her husband they had adopted a Jack Russell – only for the puppy to grow into one of the biggest dogs in the UK.
Grandmother-of-four Sue Markham fell in love with 1 lb 15 oz puppy Yogi but husband Robert, both 57, had said he didn’t want a ‘big dog’.
So Robert was left stunned when the ‘Jack Russell’ didn’t stop growing and turned into a 15-stone monster – who chomps his way through £37 worth of food every week.
Developed in England some 200 years ago to hunt foxes, the Jack Russell Terrier, also known as the Parson Russell Terrier, is a lively, independent, and clever little dog. He’s charming and affectionate, but he’s also a handful to train and manage. For experienced dog owners only!
