Arrival Story: My 12 year old Jack Russell was euthanized and the next day I saw an ad for a Border Terrier in the paper. I have wanted one for more than 40 years but could not afford it and there are no breeders in San Diego. I went to look at him, but the breeder/handler did not want to sell him because she intended to show him in CA. (He was born at Kibblebit Kennels in NH.) We did a co-ownership contract and 8 months later she allowed me to neuter him so he could go to dog parks. She travelled too much to show him and realized he would be happier as a pet. She has full visitation rights..anytime.
Bio: He is an absolutely magnificent border terrier..perfect conformation and perfect temperament...however, I believe he is much happier with his early "retirement" from the show ring.
