I feel that it is important for perspective owners to know the Breeder. So I will try to tell you my story.
My name is Angela Thomas and even as a little girl, I have loved and wanted to take care of animals. If I see an animal in need I have to help it. I spent several years working with a No Kill shelter and fostering dogs. We also started taking in starved horses and cats. Consequently it became more expensive as we took in more pets. (Food, Vet bills, and housing) Then one day about 23 years ago, I met my first Short Leg Jack Russell Terrier. It was love at first meeting. He was a (built like a brick house, ball of fire) and I knew I wanted one of his Puppies.
And into my life came a little Jack Russell Puppy that I named Dottie May. From day one she has was My best friend and My shadow.
Her intelligence, devotion, energetic personality, feisty nature, and her strong will has been the foundation for my Jack Russell Terrier line.
There are hundreds of people out there enjoying the same wonderful relationship with a wonderful Shorty Jack Russell Terrier, because they have one of her offspring.
After Dottie May came in my life I knew I wanted to breed Jack Russell Terriers and the money from the Jacks would help all the other animals to live and be well cared for.
Jack Russell's are neat dogs but they are known for being highly active. So I wanted to breed a calm Jack that would be a good family member. I believe that you can breed the temperament of the dog. You can breed calm in and you can breed calm out. I try to breed calm and good temperament in all my Jack Russell Puppies, Along with good HEALTH. The wonderful temperament of our Jack Russell's, eagerness to please and a high level of intelligence make them an excellent choice for families with children, other dogs and yes even cats.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to this page and reading about us and what I do.
Don't forget to have a look at our Adults and Rescues.You may want to think about having an older Jack Russrll Terrier. They make wonderful family members too.

In the 16 years I have been a breeder of my Australian - Irish Jack Russell Terrier line I have strived to breed only Top Quality Jack Russell Terriers. My goal was to have a Jack Russell that would do all the antics that Jack Russell's do but they would do them with a calm temperament. Along with this calm temperament, I wanted good intelligence, a willingness to learn, Good Healthy puppies, with a muscular body, and short legs. I feel I have accomplished all of the above.
If you would like to have all of these qualities in your new family member. I am sure I will have a Jack Russell or a Jack Russell Puppy to suit your needs.
