Responsibilities and Questions to Ask About Puppies
Buyer/Seller Responsibility: At buyer's request, seller agrees to remove selected puppy/adult currently listed as available, or pick selection from advance pre-birth reservation, with full understanding that should buyer decide to cancel purchase a reservation for any reason, the buyer will forfeit the $300 non-refundable portion of payment received/applied towards purchase/reservation as a non-refundable cancellation fee. International buyers must pay ½ down at time of purchase and payment in full 4 weeks before shipment. There is a $500 extra fee for international shipment to cover cost of travel to an international airport. International health certificates average $150 each. If you are from a foreign country, please check your importation requirements before deciding to purchase. Some countries have very stringent requirements and a lot of paperwork and I reserve the right to decline to ship to some countries.
Domestic shipments (including shipment if applicable) are due in full at six weeks of age. Domestic shipments can be estimated at about $275-$350 for most shipments and we can ship to most major airports using Delta, American or United Airlines. If there is not a puppy of your choice, you may choose from another litter.

Email first to get in touch, then we would like to talk over the phone.
We want to talk to our potential puppy family. This helps us find the best puppy for your family.
To the prospective buyer, some of my questions include:
a. Have you ever owned a Jack Russell Terrier?
b. If so, why do you prefer Jack Russell Terriers to other breeds?
c. If you have not previously owned a Jack Russell Terrier, what do you know about a Jack Russell Terrier?
d. Will you be able to spend a lot of time with your new pup?
e. How will your pup be able to live in your new home? For example, do you plan for your pup to live inside or outside your home? Or both? Have you discussed owning a Jack Russell Terrier with your vet?
f. How do you plan to house train your pup?
g. Do you have children? If so, what are their ages? Have you discussed the responsibility of owning a pup with them?
h. Do you plan to raise Jack Russell Terriers? If so, what organizations are you involved with? How equipped are you to raise a litter of pups?
i. Do you prefer a more/less active pup?
j. What type of markings do you prefer?
k. What size pup do you prefer?
These questions are certainly not meant to intimidate you, but to help you make a responsible choice in choosing
a Jack Russell pup that will rewarding for both you and your new pup. Happy dog owners and happy pups are
the ultimate goal of my breeding program. Most of my pups are placed by referrals and happy owners refer
programs that help them make good decisions.
- After a deposit is placed on a pup, the new owner and I will discuss an optimum time for receiving your new pup.
Consideration is given to the time of the year receiving the pup, the amount of time the new owner will be able to
spend with the pup, travel during warm/cold months, etc.
All of our dogs and puppies are vaccinated on schedule to receive their Parvo and other required shots. They are also dewormed three times in one week increments.
Happy Socialized Puppies
All of our puppies are handled from birth and given eight weeks of nursing with their mothers to keep them happy, healthy and well socialized, making them ready for their new homes.
Our Puppies Are AKC Ready
All you need do is fill out your name and address with the certified paperwork we give you, mail it to AKC and your puppy is registered to you, should you wish to show or breed them.
