Welcome to

Hickory Hills JackS!

We are now accepting deposits for our two upcoming litters. Check out our PLANNED LITTERS page.

Welcome to Hickory Hills JackS! We offer top quality puppies with great personalities. My husband and I started raising Shortie Jack Russell Terriers in 2013 with Annie. When Annie arrived, our children were just babies. Sydney was almost 3 and Jackson was 15 months. From the very beginning, we all fell in love with the Shortie. They have hilarious personalities, fierce hunting drives, and longevity in life made them a perfect fit for our family. 


We raise our puppies in our home and kennel as if they were staying with us forever. We expose the puppies to a wide variety of situations in order to provide the most well rounded puppy we absolutely can. Starting at 3 weeks of age, puppies get a water bath, followed by nail trimmings. At the time they are self weaned (which is around 6 to 6 1/2 weeks of age), puppies are started kennel and potty training. We feel that starting them with their littermates greatly increases success at an early age. Finally, puppies are handled on a daily basis by all members of our family. From the time they are born, until they leave with their new owners they are cared for with tender, loving care.


I hope you will take some time to browse our site and see if they will be the perfect fit for your life long companion.
