We would like to announce that CH Prestige Red Hot Tamale won Best of Breed at the supported Entry in Texas on August 4, 2012. Congratulations Jan!!
There is some confusion about Teddy Roosevelt Terriers versus Type B rat terriers. This is the same breed of dog just given different names in different registeries. The UKC calls them Teddy Roosevelt Terriers. The UKCI and the NRTA calls them Type B terriers. These are the same dogs and indeed many dogs in UKC are dual registered with other registeries. It is just a different name for the same dog.
About 4 years ago we decided to add Teddy's to our show line. We brought dogs in from top kennels We concentrated on starting our own unique line of Teddy Roosevelt Terriers. In that short period of time we have succeeded in having the first group winning Teddy, the first female to win top ten at Premier and the first Purple Ribbon Registered litter. Our dogs are consistently in the top ten every year. We also health test our dogs. Getting them passed for Hearts and Patellas that qualifies them for registration with OFA and also getting them CERF tested for their eyes. We also test for PLL and will never produce a puppy affected with PLL. It is not enough for a breeder to say 'we don't have those problems' Ask for proof of health testing, many inherited issues do not show up for years. We stand behind our dogs and offer continued support. We also guarantee their health from any inherited defect for 2 years.
We not only show in conformation classes we also train for Obedience and Rally and we dabble in Agility. Puppies are raised in our home. This is not simply a hobby for us this is our dedication. It is our goal to have healthy, happy and gorgeous Teddy Roosevelts that are well rounded dogs. Easily trained and easy to live with. This breed is known for being a smart family oriented dog. We are striving to make the Teddy better known and appreciated. Indeed at this time it is considered a rare breed. We have to agree this breed is truly a rare gem to own. At home on the farm or in an apartment in the city, the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier wants nothing more then to be your companion in all you do. Could any of us ask for anything more?

Meet our Boys
This is Ryder. One of our Teddy's. He is a beautiful Tri Color. Watch for him in the shows this spring. Ryder has matured out at 9.5" tall and 12.5 " long. He weighs approximately 11 pounds.We like our Teddy's small but well boned, still able to do what they were bred for. As you can see from his picture Ryder is all that and more.
Announcement!! Ryder just finished his championship from the puppy class!!
Watch for the Prestige Teddy's they are making their mark in the show ring !!
OFA heart and Patella cleared
Ryder passed his Cerf Testing
Ryder is DNA clear of PLL
This is Atlas one of our home bred champions. He is also out of the first purple ribbon registered litter of Teddy Roosevelts. He has been checked for heart and patella clearance. When he is old enough we will get his paperwork for OFA certification.
Atlas has passed his Cerf exam and is now a proven stud. Atlas is PLL clear through parentage ( what does this mean? It means both his parents have been DNA tested and found clear of PLL)
