For the safety of my Family & Animals, I don't post my address publicly

We are located in the high desert of Southern California


Kennel Tours: Our Farm lifestyle is associated with the unpredictable nature of animals and can be risky for the average person. Because of this, we do not provide "kennel" tours, which is allowing the public onto our property and into our home. Visitors can potentially bring Parvo onto our property unknowingly.



Me, Star, & Duke at our 2nd AKC Show since

the Russell Terrier moved into Terrier Group





I got my first Russell Sophie, in July 2006 &

I've been hooked ever since!


 In the long process of trying to find a good quality stud dog for breeding, we began a search for the right boy for our program. We found our little Scout in March of 2008 and it was love at first sight, for both me and Sophie.


We attended our first dog show and brought home a Champion title in October 2008 and earned our first Grand Champion title in March 2009! We plan to be working on titles in other areas including Earth Dog, Weight Pull, Rally, Agility, and Terrier Racing in the future.


We have been in the top ten in UKC many times.

We have also been invited to UKC PREMIER & AKC Eukanuba which is not easy to earn!


In the year 2012 We got a first hand visual of the FCI Type Jack Russell Terrier, needless to say this was a wakeup call to our breeding program. If we want to compete in AKC and do well, then we will need to change the type of dog that we originally started breeding in 2008.


We make sure you get the right puppy for your family!


Soon after we took more time to learn structure and more in depth of the breed standards all over the world, & with that new knowledge we took a good look at our dogs and changed our vision all together. We had placed and retired most of the breeding stock we had at the time to pursue what we feel is the correct type.

We are aiming for the world wide universal Jack Russell Terrier, a dog that fits the AKC Russell Terrier, FCI/ANKC Jack Russell Terrier, UKC Jack Russell Breed Standards.

Since we have started in the breed, we have become an AKC BREEDER OF MERIT. We have bred one of the first 10 AKC Russell Terriers to have earned an AKC Grand Champion Title in the breed's history. We were involved in the beginning stages of the breed entering into AKC Terrier Group while being a breed ambassador and active Parent Club Member. We have represented the breed with our own dogs at many Meet The Breed Educational booths at large events like the America’s Family Pet Expo.


Our top priority will always & forever be Health and correct structure.










I am a Breeder!

Something to think about BEFORE you tell someone what their puppies are worth. I AM A BREEDER...

Food receipts for my dogs food bills. I have more whelping supplies than I do medicine and first aid supplies. I have vaccines in my fridge, ringers on hand, my vet on speed dial and multiple puppy pens in my living room.

I am a breeder, who when bad weather strikes, save the dogs/puppies before taking cover myself. My feet find the way to the puppy pens before I have even eaten breakfast in the morning and the puppy pens are my last stop before bed. Personal plans revolve around delivering or hand feeding puppies. They are made around heat dates, whelp dates, puppies going to their new homes and vet dates.

I am a breeder, who has been covered in more bodily fluids from my dogs on more occasions than I care to admit. Most of the time my conversations with friends revolves around my dogs. When I get exhausted and feel like I can't do another sleepless night hand feeding a puppy around the clock every 2 hours I remind myself religiously that the hand feeding is only temporary and the reward is coming.

I am a breeder who sacrifices my own sanity and rest to wake up every hour to check on a dam in labor, or soon to be. Many people wouldn't understand how it feels to have invested hours upon hours into a weak puppy to ultimately lose it and how it can feel the same as losing a loved one or the joy I feel when all the invested hours have paid off in one that lives.

I am a breeder, who has bottle fed, syringe fed and even sponge fed a puppy, doing whatever it takes feeding every 2 hours and it taking 45 minutes to do it for weeks at a time to ensure it's survival. I have learned to be proficient at vaccinations, sub- q fluids, syringe feeding, , temperature taking and formulated and perfected my own puppy formula. Working out natural, well working, remedies to just about every puppy issue , like canned pumpkin for constipation or loose poop's. My Vet knows me by my first name, and has witnessed me cry countless times.

I am a breeder, to me that 63 days takes on new meaning still excited by every new life. It is I who delivers all my pups, towels and heating pads on ready, happiness and sadness sometimes intermingled. It is I who has breathed the first breath of life into a puppy who has refused to take that first breath. Even though it increases my work load, I look forward to the 14 day stage when eyes open, and puppies begin to emerge from the helplessness of newborns. Puppy breath, a first bark, and a heart of exploration. I am a conscientious lover of animals and I have found my niche.

I am a breeder, and I am not cruel, dumb, uncaring or criminal. I take great responsibility for every life I bring into this world and ensure it goes to a wonderful, loving and perfect home. An extension of the same love and care they received while in my own home. I am not raking in money while sitting on my butt. Every penny I make I earn through blood, sweat, hard work and tears. My greatest joy is a healthy puppy going to a wonderful home. The cards of thanks, gifts from clients and the pictures of my puppies with their new families are the fringe benefits of my efforts.

I am an animal lover, nurse, midwife, heavy laborer, customer service representative and marketer and PROUDLY I AM A BREEDER.
