All of our dogs are health tested, we know this is vitally important as a responsible breeder. Our goal is always to improve the overall quality of the pups we produce, not for recognition of that, but rather because it is in the best interest of our dogs and pups. Healthy, genetically sound dogs are necessary to produce healthy pups.
All of our dogs are temperament tested before being bred.

All of our dogs have incredible dispositions and make terrific companions, after 20 years of breeding we have achieved our goal of consistently producing the perfect Jack. For those who know the difference an MBF Jack is a special type of Jack.
All of our dogs are registered, with one or in some cases multiple registries.
 JRT's are registered with multiple clubs AKC, UKC, NKC ,EJRTCA and JRTCA to name a few.
I register my dogs as a way to track and study bloodlines so I can make suitable choices when I choose to breed a pair of dogs or to add new bloodlines to my program to ensure genetic diversity.
We are not a show kennel, and I personally have no interest in showing, here at MBF our focus is health and temperament.
The choice of registry has no reflection on the the quality of the dog.
Our goal is to raise top quality pups, provide a hands on, loving and caring environment from the day the pups are born until the day they are ready to go home with their families. We provide weekly updates and photos, we are here for our pups families prior to the pups arrival, during their 8 weeks they are with us and after they go home, it is our goal to make this a very positive and enjoyable experience.
I believe this approach is better for both our families and our pups,  all the extra time and care is well worth it and it shows in the pups we raise. It definitely takes more time and effort but our pups are worth it.

'SAVE THE TAILS'  Pups tails are not docked, dew claws are not removed.

I have had many Jack Russell's over a 42 year period and have concluded that there is no benefit, at all, to the dog to cut off part of their tail or one of their digits, soon after birth, in fact, the dew claw serves a purpose, which is why dogs have it. 

As compassionate dog breeders, the best interests of the pup is a priority to us.
