Our family of Hunt Terriers

    As of 2017 we have decided to help with the limited gene pool here in the USA. There are many top
    quality solid shorties already here in America, but there is a need to out cross in order to increase the
    preferred breed standard, without having to consistently cross back to predominately white predecessors.
    However, there will be instances, where we feel that shorties with specific minimal white bloodlines have
    much to contribute to the Hunt Terrier overall, with increased potential to produce little to no white, plus
    the benefit of improved bone, substance and temperament that we love in our shorties.

    We are looking forward 2018 with very specific plans to put together combinations that will not only build top quality lines
    but also produce some unique solid color minimal shed wire broken coats with increased bone/substance. Focusing on laid
    back family friendly personalities and preferred conformation. In the mid to late 1800's, the white gene was bred into the
    solid colored terriers from various breeds, due to the need to distinguish  their color from the Fox. Solid colored shorties
    fell by the wayside as the predominately white jacks became more popular and easier to distinguish in the fox hole.
    Hunt Terriers are one of the main predecessors of what we know as Short Leg Jacks here in USA. However to register a
    Hunt Terrier as breeding eligible, requires only puppies produced of solid Tan, Red, Black, Black/Tan with no or limited
    white markings on chest, toe's and feet. Puppies produced with more white than breed standard allows, placed as non
    breeding companions with limited reg. Just like the predominately white shorties, the Hunts Terriers are faithful companions
    of their lifestyle. They can enjoy the same life style's as the American bred shorties when raised solely as companions.
    But can easily be encouraged to express their natural instincts as hunting dogs at home, around the farm and in the field due
    to the fact that they are not bred solely as companions in other countries. They have become very popular in the USA for
    their tracking abilities. The "Solid Shorties" are making a comeback. They are the same great companions as the well know
    predominately white shorties and are known here in the states as  "AMERICAN HUNT TERRIERS"
