The short legged 'FCI' type also known as the 'Russell Terrier' in the US.

original facebook post here

Thoughts? I wonder if they will end up using 'Jack Russell Terrier' or just 'Russell Terrier'? Will this cut down on the number of 'FAD colour/size' breeders claiming their dogs are purebred? (Probably not as much as I hope unfortunately...)

The akc accepted the Russell terrier not too long ago (may be FSS or MISC still? Can't remember or look)

Basically what happened here is we now have two show type dogs- parson Russell terriers and Russell terriers. And then we still have the JRTCA (breed specific/working registry) for jack Russell terriers.

(Ok... So my reply appears to have vanished into cyberspace, so I'll try again)

I think they got fully accepted in 2012/2013?

In the UK it will be basically the same most likely, with the Parson, (Jack) Russell, and JRTCGB dogs. (They use the same standard as JRTCA.)
