Nihon Koku's Jack Russell Terriers
Yes, that's right, Nihon Koku's Jack Russell Terriers!
Some 30 years ago, a Jack Russell Terrier female named Whoopi 's was the first own doggie of Ans .
At that time, the breed was not yet recognized, so without pedigree . In terms of color Whoopi was fully according to the current official breed standard, but she was of the old-fashioned type, with short legs , a firm body, smooth coat and the then customary little hop in the rear legs. That this had to do with the genetic abnormality Patella luxation was not known yet.
Fortunately, since then breeders proceeded realy very seriously and over the years the health and quality have greatly improved.
Breeders who are member of the official Dutch breed club NVJRT are obliged to have their dogs examined for hereditary defects on Patella Luxation and eye diseases and only dogs that have been declared free may be used for breeding.
After all these years, the Jack Russell Terrier as a breed kept it´s appeal to us, and in 2011 we decided that it was time to re- add a female of this breed to our Household.
We therefore started having a good look around and requested information from breeders both in The Netherlands and abroad .
Finally, in the spring of 2012 in Finland we bought the female Pikkuveijarin Saletisti Natsaa, called Mika, from Anne Koskela, Kennel Pikkuveijarin.
At the end of 2014, from breeder Ivica Vasičin in Serbia, we bought a second Jack Russel Terrier female, a little 3-colored rough haired with the official name Amazing Little Penelope, we call her Zorah. Her breeder Ivica Vasičin doesn't have a website. Of course Zorah also has her own page on our website.
After Zorah more we added more females. From a litter of Mika we kept Siri. We bought Hera, Dessy and Iva and in 2022 we bought Izzy and Dani. We still have to add Izzy and Dani to our menu.
Between 2020 and 2022 we also said goodbye to Hera and Siri, both of them went to live in a family as a pet and Mika and Zorah retired from breeding and live with us just as pets.
Currently we have two females we can use for breeding, Dessy and Iva. The other two, Izzy and Dani are still too young for that.
