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.

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.

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!

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!!!
