American Hunt Terriers
    I started wanting a hunt terrier when I first saw them at the Arabian Youth Nationals around
    1997-98.  Can't remember exactly when, but when I saw them I thought they were the CUTEST dogs!  I
    went over to talk to the lady that owned them. She wasn't really friendly about them and what she wanted
    was out of my price range $3500, but dang, they were cute!  I never forgot them. Then one of my good
    friends in the Arabian world got one. I really liked her but I had already been breeding russells for a couple
    more years and had developed a "taste" for a certain look. I liked the bone I was beginning to see on my
    dogs, the prettier ears and their set, prettier heads, more substance in the body, and definitely, much
    sweeter personality.  She was a very sweet pup but I really wanted more bone and substance on my pups.
    He told me there were some breeders around the Scottsdale area, but when I typed in "black and tan jack
    russell", I really couldn't find anything I wanted. That is what I thought they were:  black and tan jack
    russells.  It was only until I had spoken with Avril that I realized there was a difference between them and
    the shorties I
    was breeding (other than color). I was told they were trying to reestablish the hunt terrier and it seemed
    kind of interesting.
    I found my male in Arizona and after looking for awhile, settled on a female from the Netherlands. They were a beautiful pair and I think
    made some awesome pups.  It was(and still is) hard to find outcross pedigrees here in the states. The hunt terriers do to me seem to be
    "needier" breed, the need for human companionship is very strong preferring humans for the most part over their own kind.  For that reason
    (and to try to get a solid red), I crossed my Kowgyrl with Body and I got some awesome babies and retained Leayla for my breeding
    program.   I also got all solids to be able to help others add
    new breeding dogs to their programs.  I have also crossed Tessa with Wylie and got some solid black pups.  I sell the
    spotted pups on spay/neuter contracts and they have made excellent pets.  I take my breeding program very seriously just
    as I have with my horses. I have been very successful in breeding horses and English jack russells and I feel I can do that with the hunt
    terriers.  It has been an exciting new venture for me and have thoroughly enjoyed introducing the hunt terrier to people all over the world.   I
    invite you to take a look at my hunt terriers and, if in the future, you would like to own one,
    I would be privileged to share my breeding program with you.

Introducing Matlock, Body x Mokka.  Should begin breeding spring 2017.
On The
    (he is the one holding Jadg). We have had a bit of a rough go this year getting good trails for her to get out on. The first
    2 the deer were not wounded with a kill shot and she did absolutely wonderful considering she was on a never ending trail.
    She found blood where we never would have and I believe she tracked them just as far as she could. Actually the 2nd one
    she caught up to the deer and it jumped up and took off. She has also found both of Marks arrows that he figured were
    lost for good.
    But on this successful find there was no blood trail because the exit wound was blocked and there was about a 40 pmh
    steady cross wind. Jason said she found the arrow with in 5 minutes max Mark had been looking for 45 min or better,
    and then she found the trail about 40 feet from where Mark thought it should start. Jason said she was pretty fun to
    watch because the wind was swirling and messin with her nose really bad, and due to no blood at all very hard trail, but
    she would be on it and then the wind would drift her off course a bit until she would all but loose it and he said you could
    just read pure frustration and almost panic in the way she acted because she would loose it. But she would all by herself
    go back to the last place she had a good scent and start again. And she was able to finally have a good sucessful find.
    On the previous two trails you could tell she was very upset and almost sad that we didn't find anything at the end.
    She would come over and sit on my foot lean her shoulder agains my leg and just look up at me like I'm sorry mom I just couldn't find it.
    So anyway. I just thought that I would share the picts with you and let you know how the hunting season
    is going. She has a great nose and loves to use it. She knows when we go out on a trail and just gets so excited she can't
    contain herself.
    I am hoping through muzzle loader and late rifle season we can get some good trails for her to get some more practice on.
    I have told a few people that if they bring down a deer to give me a call so I can bring her up even if they know where it
    went down and the trail is one a 2 year old could follow just so she can get some good solid runs in this winter.
    Well I had better get going. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.                       Tammi Eberle

    We are all excited that my brother is getting Lilly's sister, when
    ready.  Attached are some updated pictures of Lilly in action.  She's
    been surprisingly easy to train, and has taken to blood trailing pretty
    well (although she prefers treeing squirrels).  She's been a great
    addition to the family, and hasn't missed a hunting opportunity yet.   

    Thanks again. Jason E. Dare  
    This was my first opportunity to watch Ruger work as a hunting dog
    and I was extremely impressed.  He loves his job and is ready and
    willing to go whenever needed.  Within a few minutes after being put
    down he picked up this buck's scent and within a few more minutes
    found him.  He takes his job very seriously and is extremely diligent
    about it.  I want to thank Dalton for allowing us
    to come down to see his ranch and to experience an exotic hunt first
    hand.  It was awesome!
