Jagdterriers

LITTER ANNOUNCEMENTS

We have placed all of our spring puppies in new homes.

We are planning to breed for 2 litters of puppies for fall 2019.  We expect to have females ready to breed for October birthdays with pups ready for new homes by December .  We are taking deposits on our fall litters now.    Our puppies are $750.00.  A $250 deposit will secure your place in the order of puppy selection, balance due prior to delivery of the dog.  

Pickup or shipping should be arranged to occur when puppies are 8 weeks of age.  Pickup or shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.  We can help and arrange for shipping by air or ground.  Air shipment typically runs around $450 in the lower 48.    Ground shipping can usually be arranged for around $250 in the eastern half of the USA.

We have a hog hunting business in west Texas and will deliver puppies along our route from Iowa, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and North Texas if puppies are ready to adopt during our winter hunting season.  We try to have our puppies born in the fall and ready to rehome to coincide with our hunting season travels.

For your convenience we have a PayPal account set up to receive your payment.  PayPal payments are subject to a 3.0% additional fee on any payment made through this service.  PayPal payments should be paid to our address:   john@mulecreek.co

We use Jagdterriers for blood tracking wounded hogs on our hog hunts in Texas.  These little dogs have a keen nose and a high prey drive.  They hunt.  Our experience is that if the hog is dead we will find it.   If the hog is not mortally wounded these dogs are quite capable bay dogs and will frequently bay up wounded hogs that can be retrieved.  Our Jagdterriers are out of  Croatian and Serbian Import bloodlines with European FCI registration.  FCI registry import dogs are co-registered in the United Kennel Club  and puppies from these dogs also register in the UKC.   Jagdterrier breedings usually planned for spring and fall seasons.   Our puppies are whelped and raised in our home.

Primary Lens Luxation

Jagdterriers can be affected with an eye disease, Primary Lens Luxation (PLL).  This is a genetic trait and there is a DNA test for this disease.  Two copies of the gene will have a high probability of developing blindness.   Dogs with one copy of the gene are carriers of the trait but do not express the disease.  Dogs with no copies of the gene are disease free and cannot have puppies with the disease.  Every one of our dogs have been DNA tested for this condition.   Sparky ( our new male)  and almost all of our females are disease free.  Mandy and Jaeger are carriers.  Breeding a disease free dog to any other dog will not produce any positive testing puppies.  We will not breed any dogs that are carriers to each other and none of our puppies should  test positive for PLL.  All terriers should be tested for this condition prior to any planned breeding.
