Hundreds of Jack Russell Terriers visit Washington County

The Jack Russell Terrier Club of America holds their national trials on Saturday

BOONSBORO, Md. - Move over 101 Dalmatians, because 600 Jack Russell Terriers are taking over Washington County this weekend.

The Jack Russell Terrier Club of America held their national trials at the Washington County Agriculture Center on Saturday.

Hundreds of pups from across the United States competed in agility, hunting and more.

This is the 35th year of the national trials, where Jack Russell lovers gather to socialize and learn more about their favorite dog breed.

“It's unique, because this is the only show that recognizes Jack Russell Terriers,” said Craig Hughes who traveled from Washington, D.C. "This is the only dog you're going to see here. They're like no other dog. They're very high energy, and obviously, everyone wants one, but not everyone is in a position where they should have one."

The national trials will continue through Sunday with more activities and competitions.
