We live in Lempäälä, next to the city of Tampere. My husband Ari and I have two children Noora (born 1998) and Akseli (born 2003). We have always had animals from frogs to birds to rabbits to horses and of course dogs. Previously we have had dogs from several breeds: American and English Cocker Spaniels, Irish's Wolfhound and German Shorthaired Pointer. For a long time we had only Jack Russell Terriers but since fall of 2010 we have also one German Shorthaired Pointer. Our first jack and foundation bitch of our breeding was FIN & LTU CH, FIN JW-02, LTU W-04 Sincere Sheena of Jack's Paradise (DOB Nov 21st 2001 died on March 19th 2006 while hunting). Since her we have been immersed in the world of jacks.
The puppies are reared inside the house and after few weeks of peace and quiet the dam and puppies join the pack to socialize the puppies to other dogs, humans and everyday life. The puppies go outside every day several times if the weather permits (the winters in Finland can be brutal with temperatures as low as -20 to -30 Celcius degrees). My children though young are interested in our jacks and are already veterans in the wolrd of dog shows. Rosa has been my daughter's very own pet since the day Rosa was born.
