What does a Jack Russell Terrier look like?

Above Bobby - His story "Someone abandoned Bobby and it took the dog catcher some weeks to catch him. When we got him from the kennels he was a little ball of fury he had been badly beaten and hated everyone.  He bit the entire family growled when you went near him and scared us all to death.  Three years on he is a much loved spoiled but still tough little character he loves to be cuddled and I love to cuddle him, after all he has been through he deserves to be a little spoiled.  The vet still wont examine him without us giving a little dog sedative.   We think he is around 4 or 5 years old. Cute isn't he."
