Kennel Visitation: We welcome all visits to our farm and love showing you around and introducing our dogs to you!  With that being said and because of our unpredictable schedule, we encourage you to schedule your visit in advance. Showing up unannounced is probably not a good idea; there are times when we are out on the farm working on projects or running errands in town and on some occasions, even in the air flying pups to customers. I would hate for our alarm system to go off and 911 have to respond over such a silly incident. Below you will find a new schedule button so that you can request an appointment. Thank you so much and we look forward to showing you around!

Customer Testimonials

Bobby Chromik

If you are reading these testimonials & trying to figure out who is the best breeder of AKC Jack Russell Terriers. You have found the right place! I had multiple options & chose a Butterball for our family because of Jodi's integrity, communication, experience, & dedication. From temperament to health, all the boxes are checked off with these dogs. We got Squid in March 2019 & he is amazing! Our two labs (Moo/Tubby) & Squid are looking forward to a new brother, Butterball #2 in December 2021.

Nicole Imbriglio

Our family’s Butterball journey started in 2006 with a fluffy lemon and white female that was my Mom’s heart dog. Since then, between my parents, myself and my kids, we have since added 12 Butterballs to our family circle.
Over the years, we have been blessed with the smartest, kindest, happiest jacks. Jodi has become a cherished friend.

Donna Matarazzo

Jodi is one of the best breeders in the World. She is honest, kind and devoted to the Jack Russells. I’m proud to call her a true friend. The temperament of her dogs is absolutely amazing. Her JRTs are the sweetest, funniest and smartest dogs I’ve ever met. If you want to laugh every day, you must purchase one of her JRTs. I’ve purchased 4 from her over the years and my current two, Duke (rough coat) and Cole (broken coat) are in the pictures. Love them both more than words can say!

Frequently asked questions

Where are you located?

3050 East Highway 316 Citra, FL. 32113

Do I need to schedule an appointment to visit?


Do you offer puppy transport?

Yes we do! We offer flight nanny service and personally fly with your pup in cabin. This is not included in the price of the puppy. You must be able to meet at the airport. We also offer ground transport within the state of Florida and may on occasion offer it to surrounding states--we charge $2.00 a mile one way.

What is the price of your puppies?

I only sell my puppies with AKC limited registration; occasionally I may make an acception. My pricing starts at $1500 regardless of color, gender or hair coat.

Have your breeding dogs been health tested?

Yes. We strive to breed for overall health and disposition above all else. When PLL & SCA DNA testing first became available, we tested every single breeding dog in our program. From those results, we chose to only breed dogs that tested CLEAR and any we purchase are either tested CLEAR or from parents that tested CLEAR.



At Butterball Kennel, we have been building our reputation as a trusted Dog Breeder in Florida since we bred our first Jack Russells back in the early 80's. We take our responsibilities very seriously and strive to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our pets. That’s why the happiest days for us are when one of our animals is adopted by a loving and welcoming family.
