Before you consider one of our puppies, please understand; Our first responsibility is to our puppies…from birth until it draws its last breath. This is a contract written in blood between the puppy and us. It's a contract sealed with a handshake with the puppy's new family. Any pup that originates here will always have a home with us if the family can't keep it or no longer wants it.

If you are not ready to place a deposit but would like to be notified about future litters:

Holding a puppy or place in line: We are unable to hold a puppy or place in line without a secured deposit. Things often change quickly; a puppy you have been discussing with us is not to be considered ‘on hold’ as we often have 2-3 persons asking about and interested in the same puppy or reservation spot at any given time.

All our pups are raised using our POLISHED PUPPY PROGRAM
Our puppies come with five (5) Year Genetic Health Guarantee (see package details).
Our lines have been health tested for 38+ genetic diseases / health screenings.
We do not mutilate our puppies - tails and dew claws are intact.
Puppies wormed at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks of age.
We do not compromise a puppies delicate immune system: Mother's anti-bodies remain throughout nursing and weeks beyond, 1st vaccines are not given until 9-10 weeks of age.
Puppies will be microchipped
We prefer you come to our home, but understand that is not always possible so we do have other options.
All puppies are $2800
Sales Tax: Maine requires a 5.5% "point of sale" tax on puppies sold. This means that if you pick up your puppy anywhere in the state of Maine, we must charge sales tax.

If you're not ready to submit a reservation request and would like to ask more questions prior to making a decision, please ring us at; (207) 221-0267.

We have developed a program for our Jack Russell Terrier puppies called the Polished Puppy program.

Outline for our program:
Handling and touch conditioning
Tactile, olfactory and visual stimulation
Environment enrichment
Habituation to environmental stimuli
Sound conditioning and desensitization
Mental and physical challenges
Grooming/nail clipping desensitization
Temperament testing (at 7 weeks)
Separation conditioning
Crate training

We slowly increase the complexity of the puppies environment as their eyes and ears open and they become more coordinated and their minds can handle problem-solving. We will also let them get themselves in and out of trouble, solving their own problems, while ensuring their safety.  All of our efforts focus on making each pup the best that it can possibly be.
