Would you like to add a Butterball to your family? We would be more than happy to help match you to the perfect pup! Please take a moment and complete our Butterball Puppy Request Form by clicking on the link below.

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

Julie Kennedy

I lost last JR in Dec. I have had at least 15 JR's over the years. I have other small dogs but they don't fit the hole in my heart. I simply can't live w/o my best buddy. "Foozie" was my 14 y o little girl & she fought so hard to live but God said it was time. I am looking for another one so maybe the memories will live on,

Jack (Tan&White) was my first Jack Russell. Dian (Black&White) we bought three years later for a companion to Jack. He was my best friend, my seizure alert dog, and my greatest companion for 14 years. We lost him this last April. We are planning on purchasing a new companion for Dian in the very near future! I cannot thank you enough for the love, friendship and devotion these two pups have brought into my life.

Pam & Gary Ake

Steelee is our third Butterball Kennel little girl. All 3 Jack Russells have been great dogs. We would highly recommend Butterball Kennel for your next companion.
