"There’s no higher calling for a dog than to be a pet."
All Ruckerhill Sires & Dams are genetically tested, CERF & BAER Tested and recorded with the JRT Health Registry before any litters are planned, Ruckerhill litters are whelped and raised in our home with our family. You will find that Ruckerhill puppies are well socialized and very adaptable. Bio-sensor training/testing begins on the 3rd day, Litter training starts by the 3rd week in their whelping pen, and by 8 to 10 weeks they are comfortable in their crates and with traveling. Ruckerhill litters are wormed and immunized for all possible contacts (Except Lepto due to the very sensitive nature of dominantly white dogs) at every vet recommended interval as if we were going to keep every pup for both Field work and Show. We have conscientiously researched and found the best Jack Russell Terrier bloodlines for hunt ability, conformation, and temperaments in North America and our show and hunt accomplishments support that belief. If you are looking to provide a forever home for a best friend, or you are searching for just the right working, event, or show companion we will be more than happy to discuss the best possible fit (and each pups temperament test results) with you to best match a pup to your situation. We suggest that before you consider a Jack Russell Terrier you review the JRTCA Interactive profiler and see how compatible your lifestyle is to this very smart and active little terrier. Please remember these are hunting terriers and need to be active and have a job!
On occasion we have a dog available that has been retired from their show or hunt job. We do not always post these dogs as available because they are our pets and it takes a very special home for them to be released too. These Jacks are excellent family companions, and are wonderful dogs that need a home that will provide adequate exercise and regular jobs to do to keep them physically & mentally active so their time can be spent enjoying fun days and cuddle up nights with you. If you are interested in this type of situation than please note it on the puppy application as "Adult" and/or call us directly.

One of the stipulations for all our pups is; that should you, the owner, be forced to give up a Ruckerhill JRT, we, the breeder, must be notified and allowed one week to recover the JRT before it’s being given to a shelter or rescue organization.
