About Ur’s Vesper

The name of my kennel comes from the name of my first girl,  Saltisgardens Vesper Lynd, because everything started with her…

One of the meanings of the word “Vesper” is also “evening prayer”. John Russell, the founder of the breed, was a priest and to me it seems a perfect choice for a kennel name of this breed. All Jacks that will carry my kennel name will in some way represent a humble evening prayer from John, me and every new owner of my dogs, for contribution to the breed in every way the standard applies.

Pika was my first JRT type dog. Because of her, I have fallen in love in the breed.

But the story has begun long before I registered my own kennel. In 2014 Tia has come to our home. After a long time of searching and waiting for another dog I have finally decided that Tia is the puppy I want. One of the reasons I have decided for Saltisgarden dog is that I was in contact with Ingrid long before Tia has come to my life. During my search and waiting for the right pup for me, Ingrid shared her knowledge and bits of wisdom with me. And even though she is one of the worlds most respected breeders and has achieved many successes she is still a humble and kind person to talk to.

And not just that! Ingrid in her years of breeding not only she has bred over 70 Champions by now (many of them are even hunting, Multi. and Inter. Ch.) and of course some Junior World and World Champions too, but also she bred dogs, that are still able to work as thay were inteded to. And most important that had and still have a significant role and impact in breeding, developing and improving the Jack Russell breed. And that for me that is the greatest success breeder can achieve.
Not only the titles but the impact!
And I think that that is the kind of breeder I want someday to bee. And now, with most gratitude, I am thankful that we have become good friends.
