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.

Let me say a few words to you, yes you, the person who writes an email to simply ask the price. The person who calls and after hearing a price surprisingly states: “I can buy a cheaper pup elsewhere”. I also address you; the person who doesn’t care about papers because I want “just a pet”.

No dog is “just a pet”.

Behind every pure bred puppy/dog is a BREEDER. I’m using capital letters to differentiate a breeder from a pet factory or mill. A reputable breeder does not breed dogs without papers, that does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registration (papers) are records of lineage that document bloodline and allow one to research any possible health issues present in the lineage. When you tell a Breeder you don’t care about papers what you’re really telling them is you couldn’t care less about the health of the puppy you just want the cheapest thing you can find! When you select to buy a puppy from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for the health of every pup ; both dogs owned and every pup they’ve sold for its lifetime. This breeder will skip holidays, miss sleeping, and most of their personal house space has been turned into space for their dogs. The truly passionate breeder who loves what they breed, puts their whole heart and soul into it. Not only in puppies that are sold, but also in each client who owns a piece of their heart and now is a member of their extended family. This does not take into account any puppy/dog who might get sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and will take one back without question.

A breeder will get their hands dirty, often covered in everything accompanied with birthing. Because that’s what life is about...In the middle of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps turning. A breeder will do tests, echos, x-rays, analysis, emergency c sections, vaccinations, register litters, research pedigrees, de-worm, as well as microchip their puppies and get them evaluated by specialists.

Last but by no means least, a breeder CHOOSES the family lucky enough to have one of their puppies. Yes, you read that right. A true breeder chooses who they sell to because they are not making money off the sale. There is no compensation that can offset the investment a Breeder has made so they need to be confident its the right fit. Many times saying more no’s then yes...A good Breeder will have different criteria for those wanting to carry on their bloodline, why? Because breeding is not a responsibility to ever be taken lightly, it’s a lifestyle choice set aside for ONLY the few devoted people willing to sacrifice.

Because a dog is never “just a pet” it’s the Breeder’s legacy, a little boy’s best friend, a little girls protector, an elderly persons therapy, a member of the family, someone’s whole world!!!

Responsible breeding and owning multiple dogs is a lifestyle and commitment that many are not able to comprehend. 7 days a week and 365 days a year with our lives revolving around the dogs.

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.

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. 










The Jack Russell Terrier was first recognized as a pure breed in 1991 by the Australian National Kennel Club. The breed has been around since the 1800's


Please take note:

We are very cautious of our puppies well being and do not allow any outside visitors until after puppies are 7weeks old. We start our vaccines early due to the high volume of Parvo in our area. We do not take them outside until 8 weeks of age within our own yard. Puppies go home after they are 9 weeks old and have had 2 Parvo Vaccines and 2 Puppy Vaccines
