Spay/Neuter Contract MUST be signed for all puppies that do not met our high standards of breeding and show quality.


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.




CLT's little treasures are AKC/UKC Registered.

They are microchipped with current shots and worming.


Parents are all health tested and have been shown in AKC and UKC Conformation. Showing dogs is a good test of their temperament as well as a great tool for us as breeders to better our dogs in order to move forward with the dogs that best meet the standard of the breed in both structure and temperament.


Cosmetic alterations on any dog

after it leaves CLT is UNACCEPTABLE!


I have had many people ask me about docking tails on puppies that haven't had their tails docked. I am highly educated in this breed and its heritage, and if you do not like the look of our dogs, please choose another breeder!! 80% of breeders in the USA dock tails way to short. There is a purpose for the tails and if its too short, it is useless in a working environment. 

  • Non-refundable Deposits are $500 and are applied toward the adoption fee. It can also be transferred to future litter.

  • We Recommend you wait until your puppy is at least 4 months old but before one year old to get him/her fixed, this is also a great time to get your Puppy a Rabies Vaccine and register with the city. Spayed/Neutered Pets are cheaper to register with the city then intact pets. We highly recommend doing this so the city has your puppies information and Microchip # incase your little one gets lost.

  • We are here for you from moment of adoption until forever. If in the future is you can no longer provide for your treasure for any reason, DO NOT TAKE THEM TO THE SHELTER!!, we will gladly take him/her into our care providing you cover the expense to get them to us. We will do our best to rehome them in the best home (no refund or fee will be compensated).

  • Once puppies leave us, we are not responsible for parasites, protozoan's, and contact with Parvo. Puppies will have preventative care against these health issues before they leave. There is no guarantee that puppies are 100% protected and that they can still get these

, These ARE Terriers, Not a lazy lap dog

“I don’t want a show dog, I just want a pet.”

This is one of the most pervasive sentiments that puppy buyers, especially families, express when they're looking for a dog. What they really mean, of course, is that they don't want a show BREEDER – don't want to pay the high price they think show breeders charge, don't want to go through the often-invasive interview process, and think that they're getting a better deal or a real bargain because they can get a Lab for $300 or a Shepherd for

I want you to change your mind. I want you to not only realize the benefits of buying a show-bred dog, I want you to INSIST on a show-bred dog. And I want you to realize that the cheap dog is really the one that's the rip-off. And then I want you to go be obnoxious and, when your workmate says she's getting a puppy because her neighbor, who raises them, will give her one for free, or when your brother-in-law announces that they're buying a goldendoodle for the kids, I want you to launch yourself into their solar plexus and steal their wallets and their car keys.

Here's why:

If I ask you why you want a Maltese, or a Lab, or a Leonberger, or a Cardigan, I would bet you're not going to talk about how much you like their color. You're going to tell me things about personality, ability (to perform a specific task), relationships with other animals or humans, size, coat,
temperament, and so on. You'll describe playing ball, or how affectionate you've heard that they are, or how well they get along with kids.

The things you will be looking for aren't the things that describe just "dog"; they'll be the things that make this particular breed unique and unlike other breeds.

That's where people have made the right initial decision – they've taken the time and made the effort to understand that there are differences between breeds and that they should get one that at least comes close to matching their picture of what they want a dog to be.

Their next step, tragically, is that they go out and find a dog of that breed for as little money and with as much ease as possible.

You need to realize that when you do this, you're going to the used car dealership, WATCHING them pry the "Audi" plate off a new car, observing them as they use Bondo to stick it on a '98 Corolla, and then writing them a check and feeling smug that you got an Audi for so little.

It is no bargain.

Those things that distinguish the breed you want from the generic world of "dog" are only there because somebody worked really hard to get them there. And as soon as that work ceases, the dog, no matter how purebred, begins to revert to the generic. That doesn't mean you won't get a good dog – the magic and the blessing of dogs is that they are so hard to mess up, in their good souls and minds, that even the most hideously bred one can still be a great dog – but it will not be a good Shepherd, or good Puli, or a good Cardigan. You will not get the specialized abilities, tendencies, or talents of the breed.

If you don't NEED those special abilities or the predictability of a particular breed, you should not be buying a dog at all. You should go rescue one. That way you're saving a life and not putting money in pockets where it does not belong.

If you want a purebred and you know that a rescue is not going to fit the bill, the absolute WORST thing you can do is assume that a name equals anything. They really are nothing more than name plates on cars. What matters is whether the engineering and design and service department back up the name plate, so you have some expectation that you're walking away with more than a label.

Keeping a group of dogs looking and acting like their breed is hard, HARD work. If you do not get the impression that the breeder you're considering is working that hard, is that dedicated to the breed, is struggling to produce dogs that are more than a breed name, you are getting no bargain; you are only getting ripped off.

Russell Facts

Rev. John Russell used his Terriers to flush quarry for his hounds and he was quite insistent that the terriers should not be required to thrash, cripple or kill it but were to nip and tease the fox to leave its earth (den) and start the chase again. The terrier being unable to keep up with the hounds was carried to the earth by a huntsman on horseback. This terrier was carried in a small sack either in front of behind the rider. The terrier was set down some distance away to find his way to the den. This was the reason Rev John Russell always insisted on white body dogs so the hounds would not confuse the terrier with the fox and kill it by mistake.

Why should I test my dog for genetic disease?

Veterinarians and responsible breeders of purebred dogs and cats are well aware that hip dysplasia and other inherited diseases can be controlled by careful, selective breeding programs. DNA tests for specific diseases remain the "gold standard" in determining an animal's genotype, but in the absence of available DNA tests, phenotypic evaluations are the best alternative. Information regarding the test results from the sire and dam, along with information on other close relatives such as siblings, half-siblings, aunts and uncles allows breeders to apply greater selective pressure to produce normal offspring and avoid affected offspring.


Russell Terrier Breed Required Tests:

Eye Exams, Patella, & BAER

About Breeding and PLL

Primary Lens Luxation )

It is very important to us to thin out this Gene. We are making our breeding plans carefully not to produce Affected Dogs. PLL leads to Glaucoma which is very painful to the dog and causes it to go blind. Once it is in one eye, the other eye is soon to follow and if daily eye drops to reduce the swelling and pain meds does not help, removal of the eye maybe necessary.
