What are the prices for the Jack Russells and Hunt Terriers? Does it vary?  
Puppies are priced according to their bloodlines and outstanding breeding quality. Pricing often depends on the parents, the quality
of the pup and the way it conforms to the breed standard, conformation, coloring, or the coats.  My prices do not depend on what
the buyer plans to do with the pup (breed or spay/neuter), but rather the quality of the pup.

  • NuVet Supplements As important as a
    healthy diet is, we firmly believe that in
    this day and time, that even the best
    high quality food may not always be
    enough. This is why we provide
    NuVet Plus Supplements.    
    Puppies are born with  immature
    immune systems. It takes time for
    puppies to fully develop a strong
    immune system.
    NuVet Plus helps bridge the gap.
    We put our shorties and their puppies
    needs first and foremost.
    We feel that all dogs greatly benefit
    from this human grade supplement.

    How old are the pups when you let them go to their new home?  
    Most Jack Russells are released after eight weeks.  Some I keep longer. This depends on the situation it is going to be
    placed in. Sometimes the prospective owner may be spending some time traveling or be "out of pocket" and not ready to
    accommodate a new pup in their home and I don't mind keeping the baby until his/her new owner is ready.  I also like to
    make sure the pups have had at least two vaccinations before traveling to their new home.  

    Are your dogs good with children?  
    All of my pups are socialized with my granddaughters which play inside the house and outside the house with them, dress
    them, wrap them up like babies, cuddle them, etc.  Many of my pups go to homes with children, so far the most part, all
    of my pups have been good with children.  I do begin watching my pups as soon as their personalities start to develop and
    the pups that come out of the crate first are usually the more outgoing. This is not ALWAYS the case, but many times will
    follow this pattern. Carefully continuing to watch the pup will help determine how aggressive a pup will be. You can also
    watch behavior with siblings. More dominant pups will control their siblings. Usually the pups that are the last to come out
    of the crate are more shy and will not be as aggressive. I usually spend more time with these pups to make sure they get
    the proper socialization and they end up being super sweet, loving pups.

    In rare cases, some pups do more become more aggressive over time. This is usually due to their environment and can be
    corrected in most cases with recognition of the problem and steps taken to correct it.  

    Also, what is your adoption process for the Jack Russell Pups?   
    I really like to talk to the person on the phone adopting the puppy. I want to make sure that the persons adopting a pup are
    ready for a jack russell terrier - not everyone is. They are not for everyone. If they want a dog that constantly wants to be
    a part of their life and they have time to spend with a dog then jack russells are a great reward.
    The home for my adult jack russell terriers was built March-May of 2005 It boasts 10 outside runs, the smallest being
    11 x 90 feet and the largest 30 x 93 feet. All 10 outside runs have access to their own inside area where they can go to
    stay cool/warm depending on the time of the year.  In the summer, my dogs have fans full time blowing on them and in
    the winter there are heaters and a wood burning stove to keep them warm....... Inside you will also find cabinets to store
    doggie items in, a wash basin (perish the thought!), and a hot water heater to make the water more suitable.... oh, the
    life we must lead...........
    How to care for your new jack russell pup............
    People have different circumstances that enable them to take care of their new jack russell puppy in different ways.  
    However, there are some standard practices that should be utilized when bringing a new puppy into your home.

    1.  Make sure your home is "puppy proof".  Just like babies, jack russell pups will get into just about anything.  
    Things that can be chewed easily, wires, things that can be easily swallowed are just some examples of things that need
    to be removed before your new jack russell puppy comes into your home.
    2.  Purchase a crate.  If your pup does not already have his own crate, it is a good idea to purchase one. It needs to be
    enough that he can fit into it comfortably but not large enough that he can soil one end and sit on the other.  IF he learns
    that he has to sit in his own soil, he will learn more easily to hold it until he can go outside.
    3.  Purchase good food.  I feed Nutri Source.  It is not a really expensive food and they do very well on it. I am sorry,
    but Old Roy just doesn't cut it for me.  It needs to be a quality food made by a quality pet food distributor.  
    4.  Purchase a harness for your jack russell puppy.  Harnesses are much easier to use in training your pup to lead and they
    are not so easy to get out of .  Buy one that will fit your pup.  You can get one that can be adjusted way down to fit your
    pup, but if needed go to a smaller size.  Your pup is worth the price of a good harness.
    5.  Be consistent.  When you are potty training your jack russell puppy, be consistent in his training.  Don't take him out
    one time and then the next time it is too cold or too rainy so "I will just let him go inside this one time and take him out next
    time".  You must be consistent and your pup will learn to potty by what touches the bottom of his feet.  If it is carpet, then
    it will be carpet.....
    6.  Spend lots of time with your new jack russell puppy.  Nothing makes a better dog than human companionship and
    nothing is more rewarding that a jack russell that loves you will all his heart.
    7.  Consult others when you have problems.  I will answer any questions that I can and if I don't know the answer, I will
    ask someone that I think does know.  You can always learn more about your jack russell puppy. It is an ongoing process
    throughout your life and his.
    8.  Take good care of your new pup.  When he needs shots/deworming, do it.  Keep your jack russell puppy on heart
    worm preventative. It is some trouble but MUCH less expensive and less heartbreaking than your jack russell puppy
    carrying heart worms and having to be treated to get rid of them.  It does not hurt for your pup to be checked once a
    year for health's sake. Just like you, a checkup might prevent future problems.
    9.  LOVE your jack russell puppy.  This is your new companion for many years and the love and devotion you give
    your new jack russell puppy will be paid back many times over in the love you will receive in turn.  It is true....once
    your go jack, you won't go back!!!!
    10.  Teach others about your new jack russell puppy.  When you have company, let them enjoy your pup as you do,
    but do let them know what is acceptable behavior for your jack russell pup and what is acceptable behavior for them
    with your new puppy.  Nothing is more frustrating that for you to work so hard with your pup only to have someone
    else do damage to the relationship/training you have built with your new jack russell pup. I hope you find this
    information valuable and please let me know there are other things I should add to this list.  
    Shorties are known to live up to 15 -20 yrs Please make sure that your family has the time to devote to a puppies
    needs and are ready for the lifetime commitment to provide a loving and stable home.
