Can You Keep Up With a Russell Terrier?

You're a good match for a Russell Terrier if you're active, outdoorsy, inventive, and have a good sense of humor. These energetic, confident, and intelligent dogs are all terrier: They're bred for hunting vermin (even if it means burrowing into holes) and are always ready for an adventure. Plus, with their smarts and devotion to their humans, they'll happily learn any trick for you. These images demonstrate life with a Russell Terrier (and his brother, a Smooth Fox Terrier).

1. Sitting inside all day isn't really an option for these guys.
