About Us

Thornbush kennel is a small kennel located North of Chicago on the Illinois / Wisconsin State line, in the little farm community of Spring Grove.

I have been working and breeding Jack Russell Terriers for fourteen years. You might say these Great little companions and hunters have been pulling at my heart strings ever since we were introduced to the resident Jack Russell while in England staying at Thatcher’s Inn, Twenty years ago.

Our terriers are bred for working ability, temperament and Conformation. We want all our terriers to be part of the family. They are born and raised in our very active home, where they get lots of handling and love.

Thornbush kennel is registered in the US with the JRTCA (Jack Russell Terrier Club of America) and in Canada with the JRTCC (Jack Russell Terrier Club of Canada). I have signed and honor the Breeders Code of Ethics for both organizations.

We welcome all inquires and visits. Call us at 815-675-1392 for further information about the terriers, hunting or a visit.
