Jack Russell Teaches Baby to Crawl


Well-known Jack Russell terriers

His Master’s Voice (1898) by Francis Barraud.
Nipper was a dog born in 1884 who was thought to be a dog of the Jack Russell terrier type.[62] He was the inspiration for the painting Dog looking at and listening to a Phonograph, later renamed to His Master’s Voice. The painting was used by a variety of music related companies including The Gramophone Company, EMI, and RCA. Today it remains in use incorporated into the logo for HMV in UK and Europe.[63]

A Jack Russell named Bothy made history in 1982 as part of the Transglobe Expedition. Owned by explorers Ranulph and Ginny Fiennes, he became the first dog to travel to both the north and south poles.[64][65] This feat is unlikely to be repeated, as all dogs have been banned from Antarctica by the Antarctic Treaty nations since 1994, due to fears that they could transmit diseases to the native seal population.[66] Ranulph Fiennes and Charles Burton actually made the trip to the north pole by powered sledges before signalling to the base camp that they had arrived. To celebrate their achievement, a plane was sent out to take the two men champagne, along with Bothy.[67]

On 29 April 2007, a Jack Russell named George saved five children at a carnival in New Zealand from an attack by two pit bulls. He was reported to have charged at them and held them at bay long enough for the children to get away. Killed by the pit bulls, he was posthumously awarded the PDSA Gold Medal in 2009, the animal equivalent of the George Cross. A statue has been erected in Manaia, New Zealand in his memory.[68] A former US Marine also donated to George’s owner a Purple Heart award he had received for service in Vietnam.[69]

On screen and in literature

In the UK, one of the more recognisable canine stars was restaurateur and chef Rick Stein’s irrepressible terrier Chalky,[70] who frequently upstaged his owner on his various cookery series.[71] He was unique in having his own line of merchandise, including plushes, tea towels, art prints, art paw prints and two real ales – Chalky’s Bite and Chalky’s Bark,[72] which won gold in the Quality Drink Awards 2009.[73] Chalky was given a BBC obituary when he died in 2007.[74]

Father Moose and son Enzo played the role of Eddie on the long-running TV sitcom Frasier.[70] Eddie belonged to lead character Frasier’s father Martin Crane, and constantly “stole the show” with his deadpan antics, receiving more fan mail than any other Frasier character.[75] Moose and Enzo also starred as Skip in the 2000 film My Dog Skip.

Wishbone, from the television show of the same name which aired from 1995 to 2001 in the United States, was a Jack Russell terrier.[76] Wishbone’s real name was Willowall Soccer, and was chosen from over a hundred other dogs vying for the part.[17]

Actor Gene Hackman’s pet in the 1995 movie Crimson Tide was a smooth-coated Jack Russell terrier named “Bear”.[77] Max, a Jack Russell terrier, played the role of Milo who is one of Stanley Ipkiss’s only friends in the 1994 U.S film The Mask starring Jim Carrey.[78] Max also played the female dog Audrey in the 2000 film Mr. Accident.[70] In the 2009 movie Hotel for Dogs, Friday, one of the main characters is a Jack Russell, played by the dog actor Cosmo.[79] Cosmo went on to appear in the films Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Beginners.[80]

Jack Russell: Dog Detective is a series of children’s books by authors Darrell and Sally Odgers, and published by Scholastic. It is about the adventures of a Jack Russell terrier named Jack Russell and his gang of friends including Jill Russell, Lord “Red” Setter and Foxie Terrier.[81]

Uggie is an animal actor, appearing in commercials starting in 2005 and most notably cast in Water for Elephants and The Artist, both in 2011.[82] In the same year, based on interest following The Artist, the “Consider Uggie” campaign was launched, which attempted to gain the dog a nomination for an Academy Award.[83] In 2012 Uggie was named Nintendo’s first-ever spokesdog.[84]
