These popular and feisty little dogs have a long history of assisting people with hunting and vermin control. Their controversial and chequered past makes fascinating reading.
The story goes that the breed line was started way back in 1795 by the Reverend John (“Jack”) Russell, a parson with a passion for fox hunting and country pursuits.
The working and sporting owners of Jack Russell terriers of old were vehemently opposed to Kennel Club registration of the breed. They were proud of their hardy little dogs, preferring to call them cross breeds or even mongrels - the words pedigree or pure-bred were anathema to them. But of course there were those who disagreed and sought to create a breed standard, the Parson Russell Terrier, which is recognised by the Kennel Club.
Regardless of Kennel Club recognition though, these super little dogs are tough yet affectionate with a larger than life personality.
Fearless, agile, quick and energetic, the JRT is a remarkable companion for all walks of life.
The print combines my hand drawn lettering with illustration and each one is hand-printed on my press in a mellow, earthy taupe ink, then individually signed.
They will fit happily in a ready made frame, like the Ikea Ribba (52x52cm square frame with matt/mount included) or they can be bought in handmade wooden frames from my website at www.theenlightenedhound.com (UK shipping only for framed prints).
Paper size is approx 305 x 305mm

These prints combine hand drawn lettering with illustration. I was inspired to tell the story of different dog breeds using a dog tag design. I am fascinated by the history and unique characteristics that define particular breeds and I wanted to celebrate that uniqueness by creating dog breed specific prints.
The dog tag idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. I imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’. There’s a bit of the children’s character Paddington Bear in this project too - the lost bear with a luggage label attached - entreating its finder to 'look after this bear'.
