We had our Jack Russell, Ripper, for 19 years. We are anxious to find another Jack which we know we will profusely.
My Mattie just had her 10th birthday last weekend and I wanted to let you know how much joy she brings me. She's the best companion - smart, loving and loyal. And just so you know, she's beyond loved and well taken care of. Many thanks! ❤️
I lost my second Jack Russel 2 years ago after 16 1/2 years and my first one for 18 Years. I was ready to get another one and a little picky. I found the Website and picked my little girl Riley. Jodi and her team were wonderful to deal with and made it easy. I will always recommend them. Thank you for making my family complete again. We are so happy.
My husband Carl and I were devastated when our 17 1/2 year old Jack passed away, after a month we decided we couldn’t be without a Jack Russell. After much research we decided on “Francesca” from Jumping Jacks and Butterball Kennels! Liz McCormick was great and was very helpful and understanding since we both came down with Covid and had to delay getting our “girl”. Francesca has brought such joy and happiness to our family. Everyone loves her and she loves everyone.
We added a 7th butterball to our family in late March. And now just a couple days ago we decided to add just one more to make it even. 😂 all 8 of our butterballs are related in some form or fashion. The one common thing regardless of the relation that they share is they make the very best family dogs. We don’t go anywhere without people commenting how well behaved and calm all our jacks are. That’s simply because Jodi breeds her dogs with families in mind. We have a 20 year relationship BB.
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.

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.
Madison, a.k.a. 7
Madison was returned due to a health issue of the new mom. She is the sweetest little dog ever people call her, the happiest dog on planet earth! Thank you butter ball kennels. We love her with all of our hearts respectfully, Barbara.
Sophie was the best dog a girl could ask for! She was my third Jack Russell, and by far the friendliest, most loyal, adventurous dog. She was by my side for 15 years and I miss her terribly. I will be returning to Butterball when the time is right for my next JR.
Meet Dazy and Dezel. 2 year old liter mates. Dezel is a handsome boy and very loyal. Dazy is exceptionally beautiful. People all the time say she is stunning. She is the boss.
They play hard together all day but have the sweetest dispositions. Dazy will lick your cheek at night when she has to go potty. Well of course they sleep with us.
My son and I traveled to Butterball Kennel to purchase a new puppy for me as my female Jack had just passed away, We got there and fell in love with all of the adorable puppies. I picked out an adorable little girl and although that was all we supposedly went to get my son fell in love with a male puppie so off we went with our two adorable New Jacks. My sons Jack has passed away after a great life, and my Jack Abigail is still going strong. I recommend Butterball Highly!
Butterball JRTs are simply the best! These are the two newest members of our family, Max & Lily, and are our second pair of Jacks from Butterball. These pups are smart, funny, adorable and have the best temperament.. We couldn’t imagine getting any other breed or going any where else! Thank you Jodi for these two wonderful pups!

Russell is our second Jack Russell we got to be a companion to our first. Jodi was so amazing to work with and you can tell she really cares about her dogs and puppies. We went out to her place twice and all the pups are super friendly and such a great environment for them. Russell is extremely smart (sometimes stubborn) and so incredibly sweet. He has the absolute best personality and has been the greatest addition to our home.
Theodora & William
We are so thankful for Jodi! We are in love with our new member of the family. If you love this breed just as much as we do, please talk to Jodi. We highly recommend a Butterball!❤️
I have had three Butterballs and they have all been awesome dogs. This is Zeke and Josie. He just turned 15 and Josie is 7 mod. I plan to get Josie a companion Butterball when is closer to one! I can’t recommend them enough!!💕
Duncan is our 4th jack but out first Butterball. He came to us after the loss of our beloved Griffin. Jodi was so supportive, responsive and made the delivery of our pup super easy. Duncan has the most amazing disposition. He has brought so much happiness and joy to our family.
We have two Butterballs. Birdie and Cooper are so smart with great dispositions. Our two little outlaws make our lives better every single day. Jodi is great to work with, she knows her pups. The Butterball website has so much information to pick out the perfect pup just for you. We can’t imagine not having our little Butterballs.
Hi just wanted to let everyone know that we just got a little butterball girl. She is so sweet and has stole our hearts! Jodi is the nicest person and so helpful. So if u are interested in a puppy this is the place to go!!thank u again Jodi for everything and our little Vanessa!!
We got our puppy Koda early March and he keeps us busy but a great JR. Thanks, Snooks!
We bought our Hunt Terrier 2-1/2 years ago. His name is Cooper and is the best dog we have ever had. He is loving, calm and very smart. We have a large fenced in back yard and he gets plenty of exercise. I would recommend Butterball Farms for Hunt Terriers or Jacks. Their kennel is absolutely the best, no cages. Mommy and babies are kept in a covered area with access to the yard. Very professional.
Mac and Sharon McRae
Henry is 8 months old. He is absolutely the cutest dog on the planet. Sharon and I are in our 70’s and this puppy has given us so much laughter and joy. He is a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you so much to Butterball for matching us up with Henry.
Finnegan is 5 years old now 7/11/2017. He is a complete stud muffin and cuddle bug. The best personality and health! He competes is the JRT races, lure, and agility and loves every second. I will always come back to Butterball. Thank you so much for giving me my baby Finny.
Just wanted to say that almost 15 years ago we were blessed with a Lil Jack Russell from you. He has been the best part of our family as he runs the house. He is still going strong with his younger brother a black Lab that keeps him going. He enjoys his daily walks and his long naps as he is now older. There is not a day that goes by where he reminds us that he is the boss.. Love every minute we spend with him. Thank you for allowing this lil fur ball into our world.
We are now the proud parents of BBF:Sunset. She is an amazing girl. As a retired Mommy, she is a settled lady of leisure now. And yes, we spoil her something awful. We had lost our JRT that we had for 18 years and it took a long time to even get Hubby to look at another dog. We went to see her at Liz McCormick's Jumping Jack Farms and it was love at first site for all of us. What a great, friendly, loving companion. And a super traveler. Many thanks for this wonderful bundle of love.
Sir Winston joined our family in April of 2021. Without a doubt, Butterball Kennels and Jodi are absolutely amazing. From picking our puppy to meeting Jodi and getting Winston, we had an amazing experience. Winston has just celebrated his first birthday. We’ve watched him grow from a tiny pup to a well-bred, full-of-life JRT. If you love Jacks, contact Jodi. You won’t be disappointed. ❤️
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.
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.
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!
We chose Maci-Mae to join our family in May of this year. She is a beautiful girl with gorgeous markings. She is so full of life, love, and energy. We lost our first JRT back in December of 2020. She was our first and only fur-baby for 16.5 years. Now Maci-Mae is our “grief baby” and is helping us to heal and put back fun & adventure into our lives. She’s also our first Butterball and we love her dearly. Jodi knows her jacks and was simply wonderful to work with 🐶🐾❤️
This is Jaz 11 and Moose 10.
Best dogs ever. Looking for a third who looks similar.
Stephanie and Ronny
We got Bailey in December 2017 and he has been the best companion! Jodi has always been there for any questions we had and advice. She is a top notch breeder for Jack Russells. We are looking forward to adding our second Butterball soon!!

Butterball farm has the absolute best Jack Russells! Jodi is the most reputable, honest, and caring breeder ever. I have three jack Russells from butterball farms and couldn’t be happier. They are loving healthy happy pups. I highly recommend to you if you want a fabulous Jack Russell Butterball farms will not disappoint.
Moe at 2 1/2 yrs. Sister to another BB in the testimonials. B 1/14/19 to Maggie Moe and Swashbuckler. Full name is Swashbuckler's Captain Moergan aka Moe. He keeps us on our toes. And is such a joy.
Butterball Kennel breeds the best!! We have 2 (I’d have 5 if my husband would allow!) and they’re our favorite dogs ever!!! Jodi is a wonderful, educated, responsible breeder and we’re so thankful to have found Butterball Kennel!
My Darla loving and loyal.🥰
A bit over excited sometimes 😜😂

Jodi congratulations on the new site! We have BBF odie, BBF ziggy BBF Priya and Chloe (from another source). I've had jrt for many years. I couldn't be happier with these dogs. Georgeous. Fabulous conformation. Smart. Funny. Loving. From first contact with you, it was an easy process. I told you what I wanted in a dog in terms of behavior and personality. I explained our lifestyle. I said I wanted a broken and 2 smoothes. You made the perfect recommendations in terms of litters. Thank you.
We purchased Hennessy 2 months ago. From first contact with Snooks, to Jodi's wonderful puppy delivery its been 1st class the whole time.
Snooks knows her dogs! She helped us pick our new baby, matching us with the perfect new family member.
If you want quality, pick a Butterball! You can't go wrong!
We are just thankful for our little lemon Lucy, when it comes to Butterball you will not be disappointed. She loves us so much she literally smiles and cuddles you everyday. Such a loving jack! These jacks are everything and more, Jodi is so professional and friendly and goes above and beyond with each puppy! Thank you for our little Lucy! (12/2019)
At Butterball Kennel breeding is not a part-time or side operation; it is who Jodi is and what she does - full time, everyday! And with the additional bonus of the love and support of the Butterball Nation I couldn’t have asked for a better breeder to have gotten our Tegan from. Tegan is clever and sweet. She has a big personality, not to mention she absolutely adorable! Tegan has been a perfect companion for our older JRT and they both bring me love and joy everyday.
My pup is almost 3. She is a healthy smooth coat. I tracked Joel's kennel down. She was very pleasant to talk to over the phone and we decided when I would pick out my pup. Then I got sick, an emergency Jodi couldn't find me to pic my pup. When I got better the next litter, I picked and she's Katie. Thanks Jodi
Butterball Kennels is without a doubt the best choice if you are looking for a high quality, healthy Jack Russell pup. Jodi goes out of her way to make sure all her dogs are well cared for and are loved. We, the Butterball Nation with over a 1000 members are a testament to the all the effort Jodi puts into her dogs. We love our Butterball pups!
Meet Jo-Jo! She is our 3rd butterball. Sadly we lost our 1st two 14 yr olds over the last year and a half. They originally came from Jody’s Mom. We knew when we were ready for another pup there was no other option but Butterball. Jody is absolutely amazing to deal with. The puppies are so well cared for, with the sweetest personalities. If you’re considering a Jack, you have found the right place! Thanks Jody ❤️
This is our fabulous puppy Gianni. We got him from Jodi in July. Needless to say he is the light and love of our lives.
In August and September of 2020 we lost two dogs and as you can imagine our hearts were broken. It took quite some time for my husband to agree to another dog.
After a lot of research we found Jodi and are so fortunate for our lovely Gianni. It was a great experience through the adoption. Thank again and grateful to Butterball Kennels for our bundle of joy.
Can't get my pic to load. Got my Max Sept. Lost my smooth coat about a month earlier. Got Jody's number from a friend. Boy does she know her pups. Max had dark hair and a broken coat. She said he would go lighter as he grew and sure enough!!! He is the love of our life. But I must say the puppy stage was a handful. But he is just wonderful! Thanks Jody!!!🥰🥰❤️
When I got my Super Sam little did I know I was getting not only a wonderful pup, but a whole new wonderful family. Getting a Butterball pup is one of the best things that’s happened to me in a very long time. Sam has opened doors I didn’t know existed with agility, fast cat, and obedience events and also the support of the Butterball nation of friends♥️ Friends that become like family with their encouragement and support. Everyone that meets Sam adores him and so do we❤️
Birdie is 2 years old. She is the light of our life. She is so smart and so loving. We cherish every day we spend with her. We love that little rascal!!!
