Where breeding embraces passion
Since 2006, we breed Jack Russell Terrier according to the standard, both smooth and rough coated
Our dogs are very well balanced, with a terrier temperament and attidue to work, but at the same time are great pet dogs with kids
Our dogs are all free from PLL (dislocation of the lens), patellar luxation and necrosis of the femoral head.
Born in Great Britain, grown in Australia, Jack Russell is an utility terrier, strong and rough, especially qualified for the underground work.
