The latest news is...
We do-not have pups available at this time!
And none of our girls are presently bred.
Recent inquiries are advised to watch for email updates just for you.

Please read EVERY WORD of the following...
 
Many potential customers often say they want a pup with lots of "drive" or "assertiveness."  Folks, when they're available at all they're still young little puppies.
There isn't much"assertiveness" or "drive" to talk about yet.  All little puppies care about is getting fed and being loved-up.  Questions like that are a waste of time.
They seem to like playing with empty pop-bottles and wiffle-balls too.
If you want a bully that picks on the others, please say so. (While not common, we do see that now and then.)
Puppies grow up to become what their breeding indicates, serious hunting dogs.
They often make very good pets but that'll be mostly up to YOU.

All pups from the Nemesis Breeding program are currently $500 (when they're available at all.)
Along with the pup you'll get a 4-Gen Pedigree/Bill-of-Sale and a 6-Gen Pedigree.
All will have our custom-made embossed seal over the breeder's signature making it impossible to forge,
(That has been an important detail now & then.)
All our pups are given appropriate shots and are wormed regularly.
(Please see our Registration Policy [ Click Here ] which can also be found on the More Info tab.)
 

Whenever we have pups available to the publik we ask a price that gives us some assurance that the pup or dog will get decent treatment. That's our primary concern. (Normally $500)

Attention! How the pups gets into your hands is Your Responsibility, Not Ours.
The customer (you) make all those arrangements. (Scroll down to see more about this.)
All costs and efforts associated with getting the pup into your hands are entirely YOUR responsibility and not included in the purchase price.
 
IMPORTANT!!  If you've made a deal with us to get a pup your "window of opportunity" will close when the pup is one day older than 10 WEEKS.
No more bull-spit of waiting until it's convenient for you to get it.
If your dog hauler hasn't got the pup by then you won't get the pup at all.
Any monies paid up to that point are forfeit.  No Refunds for your failure.
 
 Some folks tell me that other breeders are charging closer to $1000 for pups.
I say, good for them!
Maybe they're better able to thin-out the annoying "riff-raff" by asking that steep price.
(the same reasoning I mention below.)

 
Remember, a particular color or look is-not what makes a Patterdale Terrier.
Be sure to examine our Colors & Markings page to get your mind right about looks and colors.  
 
Be sure to understand that you can never tell what size a puppy will grow to.
Click here to see >>>
Pinga's page. <<< a monster as Patterdales go but he sired Bosco, a normal size dog. Pinga's parents also produced Pixie, one of the smallest Patterdales we've ever seen.  Pictures of these dogs can be seen all through this site.
Our family of Patterdales seem to be getting steadily smaller but the finished size of a Patterdale Terrier is always a wait-and-see proposition.
We don't breed them for size.  We don't breed them for the pet market.  We don't breed for the show ring.  We breed our dogs for hunting/work
Whatever they get a-hold of is usually doomed and that is what we breed 'em for.

Folks, $500 is just barely enough to keep the "riff-raff" from bothering us. People generally take better care of dogs when they've paid a decent price for them.

Cheap dogs seem to get cheap care, a sad end for these special little dogs.

Remember: All costs and efforts associated with getting the pup into your hands are entirely YOUR responsibility and additional to the purchase price.

We don't get involved in air-shipping dogs.
Airlines, (ALL Of Them,)  treat your dog like common luggage and that's why I won't do air shipment any more.
 
If YOU are-not able to come and get the pup we grudgingly recommend a dog hauler.
 
Every few months we get inquiries from folks in other countries.  Sorry folks, that requires air shipment and we don't do that.



Also, if you've just gotta have a Patterdale Terrier, be sure you have a place for it.
Having a place for it should-not mean a length of chain and a doghouse.
(If putting an 8-week puppy on a chain is your plan you'll do well to keep that a secret from Tim.)
 
If it's not gonna be a "house-dog" you'll need a safe place to keep it.
If you have doubts, take a look at the
Alcatraz Kennels page for some good ideas.

Please use this address for road-trip planning purposes, (MapQuest, etc.):
165 Camp Creek Parkway, Gordonsville, Va. 22942
 
That address is the local Lowe's Store which is about 30-minutes from our place.
There is also a Super Walmart, restaurants and other stores in the immediate vicinty.
There's lots nice big parking lots to meet and visit.
There is also an IHOP restaurant and nice Best Western
motel next to it, (all within sight.) 
This area is called Zion Cross Roads which is the intersection of Interstate-64 and US Hwy-15 in Virginia.
 
 
There are a number of Dog Haulers to choose from. To find one just type in the words Dog Transport Service and do an internet search.

Dog hauling requires a lot from the driver and puppies are more work and worry than grown dogs.
Most of these guys take much better care of the dogs [generally] than any airline.
Airlines, (ALL Of Them,)  treat your dog like common luggage. That's why I don't use them any more.
 

The only real professional hound hauler that we've ever dealt with is...
 Chuck Thomas (Redwing Hound Hauler) 
He's been hauling dogs for close to 30 years (over 15 yrs for us) and he covers the entire country.

Chuck has retired after 30 years of hauling hounds and dogs all around the USA.
This is the last dog we sent via his service.  I had lots of faith in him and his shoes will be hard to fill, IMHO.

Also: We've recently had a friend/customer use the services of the guy who goes by "Pet Expedited" (336-947-2403, ask for Arthur.)
My friends in Erie Pa. say "he's the most reasonable around."  After talking with him and observing my friend's experience I don't know how the guy keeps gas in the tank at his rates.  He is definitely worth a call to see if he can help you.

I also have a local friend that can SOMETIMES be talked into a delivering a pup right to your town or driveway.
He charges a flat Two-Dollars a mile (reckoned one-way by Map Quest) from the address above to your zip code.
It's one of the best deals available these days for getting someone to bring the pup (from me) to You.
A road trip calculation from your zip code to the address shown above will yield the delivery cost right to the dollar.
A little prior planning is needed.  He has a life too, so he can't always come whenever YOU want him to.
If you want him to bring one of my pups straight to you, tell me and I'll put you in contact with him.
If you look up the mileage from the zip code shown above to your zip code you'll have a good idea what he'll cost.

 Please Do-Not email us asking if we have pups available. It'll just annoy us.
  The answer to that question is always shown at the top of this page and it's kept current.
