About Us

 

I am a mom of 5 children and I also work as a receptionist.  My husband is a U.S. Marine of 19 years. We have spent most of our time in sunny California (12 years) We moved to Maine in 2003 and we moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina September 2006. We just had a new home built on 10 1/2 acres near Pony Farm Rd.

 

We first fell in love with the Jack Russell in 1997 when we got our first puppy, Lucky.  She was a Christmas present for our eldest daughter Erin from her grandmother. She was the best pet ever! She was warm and loving, devoted and loyal, sweet and comical...always kept us in stitches! We were so impressed by her that we started researching the breed and decided to start breeding in 1999. We got our second Jack Russell, Petey in 2001 nearly a year before we lost Lucky. She had 1 litter before she passed away (sired by another breeder). Petey was a terrific and loving companion that helped us through our grief.  He had many of the same qualities as Lucky but his favorite thing to do was chase his tail! In 2002, we felt we had healed enough to get Daisy. Although her breeder told us she would be a smooth coat shorty, she ended up being a broken coat parson! Nevertheless we love her to pieces! She is the friendliest, sweetest Parson Russell you could ever come across. We then decided to continue our breeding program to bring these wonderful dogs to owners who could appreciate them.

 

Our Jacks

We have raised all our Jack Russells from puppies to ensure their excellent temperaments and their fondness to our children. It is very important to us that our Jacks are very good with children and make the best family pets possible. Currently, we have three Jack Russell Terriers all female (one is retired). We are adding a new male this summer.  They are not just my breeding dogs, but part of our family. Our Jack Russell’s do not live in kennels.  Our Jack Russell’s have free access by use of a doggie door to go out to the back yard to a very large fenced in area whenever they want to play, otherwise they are free to roam through the house at their leisure and sleep with our children!  Soon we will have a separate area for the pups to go outside to play away from the other Jacks Russell’s until we are ready to bring them together. They are on NuVet vitamins, frontline and heartworm prevention medication regularly.

 

Our Program

We are dedicated to breeding Jack Russell Terriers with excellent temperaments and sweet dispositions. We do not claim to have champion Jacks or that our Jacks are not capable of trials. We breed for temperament and correct conformation and health. Our main goal is to achieve what we feel is the perfect family companion…kid tested, mother approved! Our chosen breeding program is the old fashioned shorty Jack Russell Terriers. (10-12 inches, stocky, slightly longer than tall)

 

The Shorty's are our favorites. They are very good with children and make the perfect companion. They are also tranquil in temperament when compared to the Parson Russell Terrier. (13-15 inches narrow-bodied)

All of our puppies are raised in the home and are socialized with our 5 active children. They receive NuVet vitamins and a lot of TLC daily. They are able to go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age. When our puppies leave they are social and ready to go to their new families. Please see our puppy purchase page for more details.

 

We strongly screen our potential owners and will only allow those to adopt who have either experience owning a JRT or has thoroughly researched them. I have many pages of research throughout my site to help you on your way. Please see our Resources page for this information. All our puppies have a 3-year written health guarantee and a lifetime open door policy- meaning that if you cannot keep your Jack, return it to us and we will either keep it or find it a new responsible, loving home. We also give you a puppy starter kit to help you on your way.

Here are some pictures of our house with our surrounding play yard. Like I said before our dogs are not kenneled. There is a huge play yard built around the sides and back of our house. Our doggie door goes out our dining room sliding door into their play yard. They have free access to go in and out of the house at their leisure. This also provides them with a place where they can dig and not have to worry about the kids hitting potholes lol! In the second picture this is the left side of our house. We plan on putting out additional fencing in this area with another doggie door. This door is located in our laundry/puppy room. We have a huge laundry room that doubles as our puppy room. This way when the pups are small they have their own yard to play in and won't have to worry about our lab lol. Hopefully we will get this done this summer.
