Over the years we have dedicated to the Parson Russell Terrier, has any magazine, impressed by our passion has interviewed us.
In general, the questions are the same:
Why this race? How many years have you breeding? How do you feed them? etc etc.
Only once a man asked me:
"Why are you a breeder? Why after you have worked a lifetime you get up in the morning even before of when you went to work? Why, since you have a few mares and tu non fai più di una cucciolata l'anno, not having evidently commercial purposes, you are doing a life of sacrifices without ever being able to leave home, without a New Year party, Christmas, or any party; why do you continue with the waivers?
It would have been natural to answer because I love them, but this was not my answer.
"They were selected by men", I said, "to have an indomitable courage, almost insensitive to pain, without fear and without spot( the virtues of man without his vices) they would give their lives for you, they can do anything: agility, obbedience, flyball, coursing and also the attack and defense if I you teach them it (and are very good for them is perhaps the easiest thing).
They are perfect family dogs (not composed of mummies). They are sweet and affectionate, humorous and cheerful. A person who was able to make a selection among those who want to have them had to be there, don't you? "
I select only "big" dogs and I feel obliged to find them, as masters, at least normal people. This is a breed that is outside commencial channels. I submit subjectsto tests of character and examine the DNA admitting to reproduce only very healthy dogs.
The Parson Russell deserves all our respect.
