Your Jack-A-Bee hybrid is the result of the breeding of a Jack Russell Terrier and a Beagle and is a fairly new hybrid from the United States. Since it is a fairly new breed of canine, there is little history available on the hybrid itself beyond that it was developed in the United States. The approximate date or time of origin of the hybrid is unknown. While there is little known about the hybrid, there is plenty of information known about the parent breeds, the Jack Russell Terrier and the Beagle. Both of the parent breeds originated in the United Kingdom and both breeds were developed in the early to mid 1800’s for hunting activities, their small size being perfect for routing foxes from their dens. The Beagle was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885 and the Parson Jack Russell Terrier, one of two Jack Russell breeds which were developed in the United Kingdom, was recognized in 1997 and by The Kennel Club (England) in 1989.. The other Jack Russell Terrier breed is still today not recognized by the American Kennel Club or The Kennel Club (England). The two parent breeds are also recognized by: Australian National Kennel Council, American Rare Breed Association, American Russell Terrier Club, Irish Kennel Club and the FCI. Today, the parent breeds of Jack Russell Terrier and Beagle are still used for hunting activities as well as for companionship. Their noses never seem to stop working and searching. They make great family pets and, when bred together, they resulting Jack-A-Bee hybrid is also a great family dog.
