"Brightjacks Shortiejacks"

Breeder of Raising JRT Puppies over the last 40 years


We have shared and enjoyed the companionship of this unique breed since the early 90's. In early 2000, we embarked on a journey producing more modern day Shorties, also recognized as White with various colors known as Shortiejacks.

We have fancied this breed for the last 29 years, focused on preserving and producing High Quality Bloodlines. Puppies produced by health tested parents with consistent overall quality in health, eye appeal, calm temperaments and stockier build. Shorties have never  been what is called a cookie cutter breed. Each uniquely different in personality, ear set, coat, conformation and size ranging 9-11 at the shoulder. But this is only part of what makes this breed so unique. Their silly antics, desire to please, entertaining personality, quality in health, longevity in life, makes them great companions for many lifestyles. Shorties that we intend to include in our breeding program, must meet our high standards

in sound health, gentle minds, be willing to co-habitat and enjoy

our multi dog lifestyle. We breed towards legs that are straighter

not shorter, more bone, broader heads, ears set close to the eye.

We raise shorties in our personal home & kennel as members of

our family. We are dedicated to providing a healthy, loving, enjoyable lifestyle for our fur babies. We have worked hard to provide a healthy family environment. We allow our females to run freely during the day. They live, play, nap without limitations and

at night they usually set their own bedtime around 9-10 pm. They are sure to let us know they are ready for their bedtime treats. They each have their own 24x36 bedtime crates and are warm in the winter or cool in the summer in crates large enough for them to stretch out and sleep comfortable all night long. Amazes us how they all sleep pretty much all through the night with out a peep. 

No need for an alarm clock,  as they have 4:00 am down pat.
