Great turnout for Jack Russell Dog Show
For the third year in a row the Leon County Expo Center had the honor of hosting The Gulf Coast Club’s Jack Russell Terrier Dog Show. Dog lovers from all over the U.S., and some from “out-of-country”, made their way to Leon County to enjoy the skills of these delightful creatures.
According to Leon County Judge Byron Ryder, 78 Leon County hotel rooms were rented for the Jack Russell event and restaurants felt a definite increase in business for the time period of the show.
The club was establish in 1995 and is based in South and Central Texas. Jack Russells were originally bred to hunt fox. They were carried in a pouch on the horse with rider and once the fox was bayed by the hounds the terriers were released to finish the job by following the fox into the caves and tunnels. Part of the competition includes tunneling. Owners feel it is important for the Jacks to do that for which they were bred.
