Ruckerhill Tucker

​2014 Ruckerhill Moxie X Ruckerhill Brash
PLL & SCA Normal  - DM Carrier ( See Medical Info page)

Tucker is a well balanced Lightly broken coated terrier that is all personality. Tucker absolutely loves to be in the field with the older dogs checking settes and following everyone around. Tucker on his third outing found a sette he liked and went out of sight to hold a groundhog at bay. He is very much the image and wonderful temperament of his mother - the beautiful Ruckerhill Moxie. Tucker loves being with Dad and is all about pleasing his people. This little man is going to do great things in the future. Tucker has sired three beautiful litters and passes on his wonderful personality, coat, and bone..

BOYS

Danzig as a pup reminded us so much of his grandfather; Ruckerhill War Emblem "Junior" our very first hunting Terrier and JRTCA Bronze Medallion champion that we just had to keep him.,  Danny is the reincarnation of Junior with his friendly attitude, manners,  and drive. The only difference between Danny & Junior appears to be is his outstanding thick smooth coat. We are so impressed with this dog that we just have to work him into our fantastic lineup of breeding stock. Danny is a love around the house - he thrives on being with people - he plays with the puppies in the house and gets along with everyone.

JRTCA Bronze Medallion For Special Merit in the Field,                                                              JRTCA Lifetime Working Achievement Award

Ruckerhill working dogs are PLL & SCA Normal by descent and we prefer to stand only to JRTCA registered bitches that are also DNA tested normal for PLL & SCA, have a bilateral normal BAER test, and are CERF normal. A Negative Brucellosis test must be provided within 30 days of the planned breeding date. We at Ruckerhill will stand our dogs to a few select bitches that we view as improving the blood lines and qualities of the Working Jack Russell Terrier. If you are interested in the services of one of these dogs, please contact us for a copy of the Stud Service Agreement, and provide a copy of the potential dams pedigree, JRTCA registration info, and a photo.

Ruckerhill Havoc​

11.25” Tri color, Broken coat
2016 Ruckerhill Swagger X Ruckerhill Moxie
DNA Normal for PLL, SCA, DM

Havoc is a wonderful well balanced little Jack Russell with a big heart. Havoc does well in the conformation ring but much rather be in the field. Havoc's favorite thing is to be with the family and ride in the truck. Like his farther, Swagger, he has an extraordinary kind temperament and is great with children and puppies. Havoc has a unique sense of active prey settes. Once determined to enter a sette he will stay at it for hours, and always finds active prey. This little dog has great bone and a head that gives him the strength protection needed to work the larger groundhogs and Raccoons sometimes encountered in earth work. Havoc is a proven sire and stamps his coat, color, and temperament.

Swagger is called the gentleman around the farm. He is laid back and is so confident he finds no need to challenge the other dogs – even in the field. If a dog wants to posture and challenge, he will come to dad and ask if Don will take care of it. As a pup, he reminded us so much of his dad; Little Eden Strut, the sire of champions and (one of Don’s Favorite dogs), that we just could not part with him. He is one of three outstanding off spring from

When he stops playing  in the yard and sets up naturally he has such a presence - that look at me attitude. Danny is extremely flexible and when he moves he covers ground - he is gorgeous. Danny loves to work in the field - he is smart, cautious, and tenacious. Danny is a proven sire that stamps his color, coat, and wonderful temperament.
