Double Down Working Jack Russell Terriers
We breed for temperament, health and preservation of the working terrier
Hello, my name is Penny Richards. My love for dogs started at a very early age in my life when my family bought our English Springer Spaniel for working in the fields. I grew up with dogs my entire life and being the daughter of a farm dad that's no surprise. My father taught me the deep unconditional love that not only dogs have but the unconditional love that all animals have.
Growing up with farmers in my family I went off to college to study animal science and then onto graduate studies in toxicology/pharmacology. Today I focus on breeding the Jack Russell Terrier. Our focus is to breed to the Jack Russell Terrier standard, to keep the hunting/work drive alive and maintain the overall genetic well being of this great working terrier.
My husband (James) and I have owned Jack Russell Terriers now for over 25 years. We just love their drive, character, athleticism, versatility and companionship. Once we started to show our Jack Russell's through the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America (JRTCA) we became hooked even more. Our breeding program is focused on temperament, correct structure, balance, along with working ability. We breed infrequently, and all our terriers live in our home. We are members of the JRTCA and the the Jack Russell Terrier Club of Canada (JRTCC). If you have not owned a Jack Russell Terrier before I would suggest you check the JRTCA website to see if this breed is the right one for you. Jack Russell Terriers are not the breed for everyone. If you have the time and commitment to invest in this great little terrier you will have a forever friend.
We participate in "The Jack Russell Research Foundation
We are a certified breeder through Good Dog. You can visit their site for more information about "Good Dog" and us.

Our Breeding Program
We take the responsibility of breeding very seriously. Our goal is to preserve the natural hunting
instincts of the Jack Russell and we strive to breed a correctly structured terrier based on the JRTCA breed standard as well as great temperament. That is our number one priority. Any Jack Russell Terrier entering our breeding program will be selected for their temperament, health, and natural working ability. Our breeding terriers are tested for Primary Lens Luxation (PLL), Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA),Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) and we CERF test annually. In addition, all puppies will be BAER tested for normal hearing. Our puppies are raised and socialized in our home and are held until 8-10 weeks of age. New owners must have a fenced in yard upon purchase of their puppy. We do not ship our puppies, you must come and pick up your puppy.
