On November 1, 2005 the U.K.C. Russell Terrier standard changed.
Some of the new standard changes included:
HEAD - The head is proportionate to the size of the body. When viewed from the front, it should resemble a triangle. The muzzle is slightly shorter than the skull and is joined by a defined stop. The planes of the skull and muzzle are parallel.
SKULL - The skull should be slightly rounded, but not apple or domed. Cheeks are well developed...
The original standard text, pertaining to the same areas:
The head is proportionate to the size of the body. When viewed from the side, the muzzle is
slightly shorter than the skull and joined by a definite stop. The planes of the skull and muzzle are parallel.
SKULL - The skull is flat and moderately broad, tapering slightly toward the muzzle. Cheeks
are well developed.
MUZZLE - The muzzle is strong with powerful, muscular jaws. There is a minimum of falling
away under the eye, giving a moderately chiseled look. Lips are tight and darkly pigmented.
The F.C.I. Standard:
CRANIAL REGION :
Skull : The skull should be flat and of moderate width gradually decreasing in width to the eyes and tapering to a wide muzzle.
Stop : Well defined but not over pronounced.
FACIAL REGION :
Nose : Black.
Muzzle : The length from the stop to the nose should be slightly shorter than from the stop to the occiput.
The U.S. is the only country using a different standard from those countries recognizing the 10-12\" slightly longer than tall Jack Russell Terrier.
