I purchased/adopted both my jack russell terrier and my beagle from Jack's Dog Farm. My beagle lived to the ripe old age of 18 and my jack russell, at 15, is still going strong. I'm glad Jack's was around when I was looking. I am now trying to adopt a senior dog and having little response from adoption shelters and am looking to Jack's to get yet another "love of my life". This place would not be in business for so many years if they weren't on the up-and-up. I fully support Jack's Dog Farm and would recommend them to anyone.
To all those haters that think they know what Jacks Dog Farm is all about ..you don't know "JACK"...There are many people that have purchased their puppies and have come back when their beloved friend passed from being with them and sharing their love for 10 yrs or more to purchase another one. THIS IS NOT A PUPPY MILL!! You should be ashamed of saying such terrible things that are just not true. I have a friend that bought a puppy from a pet store (talk about puppy mill) the dog had kennel cough and now is extremely sick and had to be at the vet hospital for 3 days. There are sick puppies unfort just like there are sick people but you have no right to say such horrible things without merit!!!
Please do not patronize this place. In fact, if you really love animals, please also let everyone you know that this is a PUPPY MILL, in business since 1927, dealing in mixed breed darling puppies, which come from Amish puppy mills in PA. Go there and see the cute puppies, then ask to see where they came from, see the bitch and stud parents, and expect to get a vague answer. There are no papers, and you can google puppy mills to see the anguish of the animals involved, but my question really is, What happens to these cute little puppies of 8 to 12 weeks old (who are sold for hundreds of dollars, often sick, and always without papers) what happens when they are a little older and no longer so cute. What happens then??
I now know 4 dogs that have died under the age of 5 - all from this place - the health issues - people , you are getting a dog from a tiny genetic pool - have you heard of puppy mills ???????????? Help to stop this cruelty !!
My Website Showcases Our Puppy Bought From Jacks! – We "stopped" by not planning to purchase a puppy, however, when we laid our eyes on 3 little chocolate labs, I was smitten.
And you can see from my photos of Jack Henry on my website (hellobacon) that he is totally adorable!
The kennels that the dogs were kept in were very clean, all had fresh paper and fresh water. There were German Shepherds (adorable!!) and many other breeds (they are known for their Jack Russell terriers I later found out).
Jeremy came out to help us almost immediately. Do not be afriad of Jeremy. He is huge. He would make a great body guard if he ever decides to take up a new profession! But he was very kind and helpful and didn't pressure us in anyway. (Like we needed any extra help - we knew we were doomed as soon as we held the first puppy!).
I did notice a bit of a cough and Jeremy sent us home with meds just in case. Jack Henry came with papers and had already received the vaccinations that were due.
Once we got home, I became concerned about the cough. We'd just lost our dog Diablo unexpectedly, and I had "new mom" syndrome and panicked because of the recent loss of Diablo so I took him to our vet, Ark Animal, which happens to be the same vet Jeremy uses. They put Jack on a round of antibiotics and when I called Jeremy to let him know, he paid for the whole vet bill and was very very professional and kind. We later heard from many friends that new puppies and or rescues they'd gotten from either other breeders or shelters often had the same thing. I met other people who'd bought their dogs there and 2 had dogs that were fabulously healthy, awesome dogs, and one person said her puppy had been sick but that they also took care of the vet bills and now her Boxer is happy healthy and wonderful.
When I talked to Jeremy after Jack went to the vet, he gave me the name and number of a person who had bought a puppy from the same litter a few days before, in case I wanted reassurance. I think, it's not unreasonable to expect that a new puppy from any breeder might not be in tip top health - crap happens! What SHOULD be expected is for the business to work with the customer to remedy the situation - which Jeremy at Jacks Dog Farm absolutely did. Keep in mind too, if you call someone to complain and start off the conversation with a bad attitude, it doesn't help the situation. You should expect to be treated the same way you are treating the other person.
After I got home, I did some research on Jacks Dog Farm and read some horribly written reviews - I know animal people are passionate and sometimes over the top - and I think that Jacks might have been targeted by these crazy over the top people - and from the way they can barely piece a sentence together, I find it hard to believe they can afford to pay for a pure bred dog.
If you are thinking about going to Jack's Dog Farm, please, just stop by and see for yourself!
I've got a million pictures of Jack Henry up on my website if you are curious, and I have to say, his temperament is AWESOME! Every time we take him out (to kids soccer games/field hockey/the park) - everyone compliments how laid back and easy going he is!
We're so happy with him and I give Jack's Dog Farm 5 Stars for such a wonderful dog and 5 Stars for the way they handled our situation.
Adventures in buying a puppy that wasn't a rescue. – Part 1 Being sort of new to PA, about a month after I had to put my old friend down, (very large Retriever mix who lived to be 13, most excellent Nationally Certified Therapy Dog, overcome by cancer) BOSSCO...I wanted another personal dog. Everyone I knew, at the time, had gotten their dog (s) from Jacks. So, I took a trip over to see what they had available. The Saturday we were there, was hot, but the place had no odors, all pens containing puppies had full clean water containers, the puppies were lively, and there were large industrial fans set up everywhere to create a good air flow, it was comfortable in the building. All bedding appeared to be clean, and two guys were walking about checking and spot cleaning during the 2 plus hours we were there. Still, I did get a niggling feeling that with the sheer number of diverse breeds being offered, Jacks might be dealing with outside Puppy Mills. In retrospect, I'm sure of it and that makes me sad.
I did end up purchasing, what I was told, was a second generation GSD/Husky crossbred bitch. I call her a Shepsky. Hannah was the last of her litter, which, I was told was out of the second litter produced by the same dog and bitch. When I asked Jack how large he thought she would be, he said about 17 to 18 inches at the shoulder. He nailed that right on the mark. Hannah is 18 inches. When I asked about her parents he said they lived out on a farm and were named “Sally and Duke” which, as he quickly said the names as if pulling them out of a hat, kind of felt like a red flag to me….but…I was already falling in love, and this was the first non-rescued dog I had ever purchased. All of my prior seven dogs were either rescues or from friends who had or knew someone with an accidental breeding.
Hannah did come with a UTI, from being in sawdust bedding, but other than that her health was excellent. Since I switched both of our dogs and all four cats over to a Species Appropriate Raw Diet, about five years ago, her health (and that of our other animals) has improved even more.
As a very intelligent and rather lively dog, I realized pretty fast that Hannah needed a job. Although I had two prior certified therapy dogs, I didn’t see the sometimes mercenary Hannah as excelling to the max at that task. When the opportunity came along to train her for Search and Rescue, I thought THAT might suit her temperament much better. As one of the nosiest dogs I’ve ever known, she took to S&R like a duck to water. Hannah LOVES “playing” FIND IT and has found almost every person who she has been set to track including one trail that was 18 days old, that we ran in the dark. Not being a Bloodhound, Hannah should not be capable of running a trail that is that old. However, no one told HER that, so she simply did what she has been trained and loves to do.
horriible. – Our babygirl roxy we got her on the 11th and on the 16th she got really really sick we rushed her to the animal hospital and she came up poss. for pravo, jacks dog farm is no clean what so ever, not right now atleast, he won't even pay for our vet bills and shes struggling for her life right now and he treats those dogs like they're toys like if it breaks you can just buy a new one. we're taking him to court and getting the best lawyer we can and shutting his ass down!
BadBadBad. – Never purchuse a puppy if the dealer fails to allow you to see the parents. This is due to the parents being in inhumane environments, often puppy mills. Jack's dog farm has NEVER allowed the purchaser to see the puppy's from what I've read & heard.
As for the dealers personalties. Maybe in the past they we're nice people but after years and years of the same word, lack of interest takes over & you have the uninterested dealers who are looking for the money not the happiness of the puppy's or future owners.
Recently, my friend bought a puppy without asking ANY questions, her mistake. But, Roxy is now in the hospital with a deadly bug that could have only being in the puppy farm. Without treatment, which will cost thousands in the end, she will pass away.
I recommended never buying a puppy from this place, along with an entire list of others. Petfinder has plenty of dogs needing homes. If looking for a specific puppy, due your research, see where the parents are being kept and ask for all papers!
Got my dog at Jack's. – I originally took my mother into Jack's to show her how gross and sad it is in there; unfortunately, we wound up walking out with Pauly, our "Pug/Miniature Pinscher" (I don't see much pug in him). We've only ever had big dogs, but our lab and lab mix both lived to 14, so we're pretty responsible pet owners... Pauly had diarrhea the whole first two weeks we had him, and intermittently up until about a week and a half ago. According to our vet, all his vitals are totally normal, bloodwork came back fine, teeth and gums look great, and he's growing/gaining weight at the appropriate weight... But his behavior is pretty awful.
It might be partly because he's a small dog, one of his parents was a very high-energy breed, and he's a boy going through some pretty big hormonal changes right now :/ but I think his parents were probably behaviorally unsuited for breeding, which is a product of bred-for-profit puppy mills. Jack's is a dealership, not a careful professional breeder. Pauly is very aggressive and jumps up on people's legs and bites their feet. I've had to paint most of our furniture and the tops of my feet with tabasco sauce to prevent his destructive behavior. I've never had such a high maintenance pet. He is extremely intelligent, but very willful and difficult to potty train.
We chose Pauly because he was all alone in his cage at Jack's, curled up asleep in his food dish. When we brought him home he became much less lethargic, but went WAY too far the other way. That said, we love him very much. He is a healthy boy and he's in training, so things are looking up, but I bet that a dog from a reputable breeder would have fewer discipline problems.
We will never get a dog from a puppy mill again, and we cannot recommend that anyone else get a dog from a puppy mill when there are so many great rescue organizations in the area. If you're looking to get a dog in the Bucks County area, enter your zip code and specifications on Petfinder (google it) and look at all the awesome local dogs and rescue centers. They have plenty of dogs of every age, breed, and energy level, dogs that are good with cats and children, dogs with no health problems and dogs that are already housebroken.
my expeirence – i got a west highlander white terrier at jacks dog farm. i was so happy because i wanted a puppy so bad. so my family surprised me about getting a dog and iwas so happy. but, that night my husband had to take him to the vet because he was not breathing right. i was devistated. the next day i brought him back to jacks dog farm and told him the situation. so, he checked him out and said theres nothing wrong with that dog. but, the dog was sick. all of them were but didnt do a thing about it, i would NEVER recomend that place to buy a dog.
