Our lovely puppies by sire GCH Ragus King of Swing at Salterello

As we are dedicated to continually improving our breeding program we have imported two lovely Norwich terrier dogs from Europe. We are blessed with great friends and lovely dogs. We were privileged with the opportunity to import CH. Ragus King of Swing at Salterello, we affectionately call "Swinger." We are very thankful to Beverly Fraser and breeder Lesley Crawley in the UK for such a wonderful dog. Swinger is a littermate brother to Cruft's 2011 Norwich Terrier Best of Breed and Terrier Group 4 winner, UK CH Ragus Jazz King. UK/INT CH Ragus Jazz King continues to win big in Europe and we wish owner Peter Kissen all the best of luck. We look forward to a promising show career with our boy Swinger as well. Swinger is the first natural tailed norwich to compete at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Swinger is also the FIRST natural tailed AMERICAN GRAND CHAMPION **

In 2011, we were lucky enough to also import a delightful male Norwich Terrier puppy from breeders Liane and Jens Ruck, Austria. CH. El Dorado von den zwei Eichen, "Dorado" is a darling dog that earned his Championship by just 10 months of age.

​ I would also like to take the opportunity to congratulate our friends Jens and Liane Ruck for their 2012 World Dog Show Champion Norwich Terrier Winner -- Wild Devils Kevin Costner. Much congratulations to such a great win! You can see pictures of Wild Devils Kevin Costner on the Ruck's website: www.norwich-terrier.at

**UPDATE: International Beauty Champion/WORLD/Austrian/Canadian/American GCH Wild Devils Kevin Costner and 2012 World Dog Show Norwich Terrier Winner is now in Virginia at High Pines Norwich. Wild Devils Kevin Costner, called "KC" has joined us permanently at High Pines Norwich. We are thrilled with this opportunity. Many thanks to the Ruck's for this wonderful dog! **

All in the de-TAILS.

Our love of Norwich terriers took us on great travels to Cruft's Dog Show 2011 in England and World Dog Show 2011, 2012, and 2013. We met some great people and saw old friends and got to see some wonderful International Norwich terriers and with undocked or "natural tails". It does take a while to get used to the dynamic movement and expression of natural tail but we fell in love. Many of our puppies have natural tails that have not been docked. Please see some of our puppies from Swinger in the picture above. I like to quote one of our puppy buyers "We love Hamlet and he is always happy and wags his tail like a flag and we just adore him!" It may be an adjustment for some to see Norwich Terriers with natural tails but we really enjoy the expression.

At High Pines Norwich Terriers, many of our available puppies will have undocked or natural tails. This decision in not only anesthetic in our opinion and allows our puppies to show internationally but is lest trauma and pain inflicted on newborn puppies. The decreased risk of infection and death from the docking process is also avoided. We find the puppies to be more athletic, more quick to walk and better swimmers in our opinion. We hope that you will understand and accept our decision as breeders and we do hope that you will also enjoy the joyful expression of the natural tail.

On occasion, we have adult Norwich terriers that we are willing to retire from our breeding program to selected homes. We also may have older puppies from time to time as well. Puppies are available at full price but adults are often for a reduced price. Check here for updates of available Norwich. We only rarely have adults to re-home, if you are LOCAL please inquire. If your are NOT local, please inquire and I will do my very best to refer you to a Breeder friend in your area. Please contact us if you are interested.
