A Jack Russell Terrier is a breed of dog and one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[1]

Ronald Weasley's Patronus is a Jack Russel Terrier. He first used it during a Dumbledore's Army meeting in the 1995–1996 school year.

Behind the scenes

  • J. K. Rowling chose the Jack Russell terrier as a sentimental choice for Ron's Patronus, because she had a Jack Russell terrier, whom she stated to be "insane."[2]
