Jack Russell
Terrier coat types
and colors and
markings
Coat Types:
Jack Russells come in three coat types: smooth, broken and rough. A smooth coat is short all over. A
rough coat is long all over. A broken coat is an in between coat type with long hairs in some places
and short hairs in others. Many people believe the broken and rough coats shed less.

Colors:
Jack Russells come in three color combinations: tan and white, black and white and tricolored (black, tan
and white). Tan and white can range from a very light blond color (known as lemon tan) to a very dark sable
tan (tan with black hairs mixed in). Some Jacks don't have any spots and are solid white.
