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
    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 Russellville Britni,
out of DJ and Brandye.  She is
the coolest dog!
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.

    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!
