Thank you for taking a few moments to look at my testimonies 

We couldn't be more pleased with our decision to bring home a puppy from Sheri at Ark Kennel. Her attention to detail and genuine care for the animals shone through in every interaction we had with her. From the initial inquiry to the day we picked up our little bundle of joy, Sheri was there every step of the way. She provided us with regular updates on our puppy's health and development, including photos and videos that made our hearts melt. Living in Alaska, we were initially apprehensive about how we would transport our new family member such a long distance. However, Sheri's extensive connections put us at ease as she arranged for a flight nanny to accompany our puppy on the journey. The added peace of mind was invaluable, and we were thrilled when we finally got to meet our little hunt terrier, Tobias. Tobias is a fantastic puppy, with a pedigree that reflects his intelligence, eagerness to learn, and socialization. We can't thank Sheri enough for her professionalism, caring nature, and the fantastic experience we had in bringing home our new fur baby. We highly recommend Ark Kennel and Sheri to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable breeder. Amanda from North pole, Alaska  2023



    I want to thank Sheri York from Antoine River Kennel for our beautiful puppy Lucy. She was very professional, and when we got to their house, she was sitting in the yard playing with our puppy. This little girl is exactly what we were looking for in a shorty Jack. She invited us into their home, so we could review the paperwork, and look through the bag of goodies she sent with us. It’s hard to do business from another state (Nebraska), but it was fine. She answered all my questions, and assured me this little spitfire would be great for my breeding program. Sheri and her husband are so funny that we didn’t want to leave, but we had to get on the road to get home. Thank you again Sheri! I will get another puppy from you! Dawn from Na. 2022



I was trying to get a JRT for a couple years until I found A.R.K on the web and I was astonish with the puppy’s they got there, immediately I talk with Sheri and she was very patience explaining me everything about the breed, after I choose my puppy she was keeping me update weekly with pics & videos to see him growing and also she was calling him by the name the I choose.

I recommend 100% Antoine River Kennel

Thank you Sheri

5 days later…. I adopted my Jack Russell Shorty from Sheri York in Amity on August 4 2022. Roxy is a beauty with white body and brown markings. Also has a brown head with awesome face markings in black. Sheri breeds healthy Jack Russells. Roxy is very healthy as pronounced by my vet on her first visit. I found out about Sheri’s pups online as I was searching for the perfect fit. I appreciated all of Sheri s efforts to work with me. Once I chose Roxy, I received weekly updates…pictures, videos, and information about how pups were growing and progress in health and care. Also, Sheri began using the name I chose early on. If you want a well bred pup and a pleasant experience in the process, I highly recommend Sheri’s kennel…

Mrs. Maus from Benton Ark. 2022


When I first talked to Sheri I had lost my Jack to a snake bit. I was heart broken and looking for a new companion. When I first contacted Sheri she did not have any puppies. Sheri is not running a puppy mill. All her dogs are well cared for and loved. She took my name. I checked around with other kennels and decided it was worth the wait. I was so glad I waited for a puppy from Antoine River Kennel.

We picked up our little boy Dug from Sheri at Antoine River Kennel on March 3 2022. He has brought so much joy to our home. He is an active fellow chasing squirrels, rabbits and what ever else he can find.

We live near Sheri and we were able to visit Dug before we actually picked him up. Sheri’s kennel is top notch! She keeps the kennel clean. Warm in the winter and cool in summer. She takes care of each puppy as if they are all her babies. She told me “I do because they are my babies till you take them home”. I cannot say enough about how well maintain she keeps the kennel

Getting Dug from Sheri was a GREAT experience. She sent pictures and videos weekly. She would also send more if I ask. Anyone looking for a Jack Russel or a Hunter Terrier Antoine River Kennel is the place to go! 

The Richmond family from Ark. 2022


It had been a while since having a dog, and my son has badly wanted one. We wanted a smaller breed dog, and Sheri’s Jack Russell shorties are absolutely perfect! I found her on the AKC marketplace and from the time I placed my deposit till the time in getting our fur baby Scout, Sheri has been so wonderful. She sent us weekly updates on how he was doing and at time of getting him, the process was so easy. She had all paperwork organized in a folder for me and also a goodie bag with all the things needed for him for starting out. She already had worked with him on house training too, and I can tell he received daily love and attention. He has adapted to us in no time! This has been a very good experience for us. Also, he is very healthy and all vaccines up to date and I received a certificate from veterinarian who checked him thoroughly. I also received all documents on his pedigree including information about his parents. Sheri is very thorough and takes very good care of these babies. I recommend Antoine River Kennel if you’re looking for a puppy to adopt. Sheri’s pricing is extremely reasonable and you will get so much more than you would with anyone else. We are so very happy with our new baby Scout!!! He is such a blessing to our family.  

The McArthur family from TN. 2022


When searching for a new Jack Russell pup, I came across one that I liked with I was hesitant being it was out of state for me. I contacted Sheri and we had a very in depth conversation about the pups and she took time to take videos and I felt assured of her business. Since it was such a far distance she offered to meet half way. Once a pup was selected . She sent weekly updates, always answered my questions with quick responses. I recommend Ark Kennels. Sheri was great to work with. Thanks again. 

 The Cornette family from LA . 2022



We just received our 3rd pup from A.R.K.

Mrs. Sheri has always been the best to work with and our pups are the greatest. We absolutely love the Jack Russell breed and of course all the many wonderful things this breed brings into the household. I will never own another breed and I will never purchase from another breeder. Do not delay, call, text or email today to get your special puppy reserved.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️  


The  Edwards family from  Ark. 2022



Sheri Counts York how can I thank you enough for our little Bailey!!

From the first time we communicated you have been awesome. It can be a little scary trying to buy that special fur baby from a breeder so far away. But you made the process so comfortable. Your weekly updates and videos assured me that I chose the right breeder. Your help in getting our little girl to us all the way from Arkansas was way beyond the call of duty. Thank you Sheri from the bottom of my heart. My only regret is that I did not get two fur babies ❤️  The Gainey family from N.C. 2022



Sheri was amazing!!! She made the process of buying our Shorty Jack Russell puppy very easy, and sends weekly photos and videos! Everything was great, and our Sammy arrived healthy and just as promised with all paperwork, and details included. Thanks Sheri!!!

The Still Family from Ark. 2021



Thank you Sheri for this precious little boy that I have. His name is Charley which fits him to a T. He loves to be cuddled and sleeps like a baby all night in his bed. He loves his toys along with his food. I will tell anyone who ask me where I got him and I will tell them I got him from Antoine River Kennels in Amity, Arkansas.

Thanks again - J. Horn from ARK 2021



We brought home our sweet girl nova 1 week as of today. This little girl is a ball of fun topped with a little bit of spice. Perfect for our household. She is a cuddle bug but only when she takes a moment to slow down for that puppy nap otherwise nope. She has 2 siblings they adore her and are teaching her all about our household. Sheri York was amazing to work with she sent us weekly updates with adorable videos. Those videos with her Commentary let us see our puppies personality developing. You can see how much love she pours into her puppies. We feel very blessed to have one of Sheri York’s adorable puppies.

Antoinette Garwood Iowa 2021



Thanks Sheri for our boy Max. He has been a joy. When I took him to the vet they said he was well taken care of. We enjoyed seeing video and pictures weekly. We fell in love with him before we got him. Sheri took the time to talk and explain everything I needed to know. You could not meet nicer people. Our next little one will be coming from ARK, that should tell you how much we trust ARK. Thanks again Sheri for Max.

The Matheis family from Dale, Indiana 2021



Thanks to Sheri York, owner of Antoine River Kennel, we are the proud owners of Mingo, a handsome Jack Russell puppy. Sheri introduced us to him via video when he was four days old. Once we decided he was the one, she provided all the information we needed about his parents and his health. We received videos of his growth and activities. Sheri provided updates on vet visits and outcome. The communication was great!! We highly recommend her if you are looking. Please view her page at Antoine River Kennel.

Paul and Lorie Williams, Conway, AR 2021.


I need to say what a great experience I had from start to finish with Sheri from Antoine River Kennels. I live in Murphy NC. and was lucky to have found Sheri all the way in Arkansas. This is my first puppy and as soon as I spoke to Sheri I knew that I wanted to purchase my JRT from her. From the weekly pictures and videos to her response to all my questions kept me up to date on Max's progress from birth to delivery. Max is the most adorable puppy with a sweet disposition. He is 9 weeks old on 8/16/2021 and had his first veterinarian appointment today. My visit was nothing but positive and they all praised what a great healthy pup Max was.

David  Prentice from N. Carolina 2021



I am so glad I found Sheri York and her babies. I picked Up my little Arlo last Friday and he is perfect. He is one of her first tri-color puppies. His markings are so cute. Sheri was great to work with from start to finish. She sent videos every week so that I could see my babies progress. It was nice to meet her in person when we picked him up. You can tell that Sheri loves what she does. She even contacted me the next day to see how my baby was doing. I took him to my vet on Monday and she confirmed that he was perfectly healthy. The Dr. stated that she was impressed with the detailed paperwork that Sheri provided. I would recommend Sheri to anyone interested in a shorty JR.

The Lang family from Texas 2021



If you are looking for healthy and happy Jack Russell Terriers, look no further than Sheri York’s Antoine River Kennel (ARK). I lost my 12 year old JRT, JP Shortstop, on August 22, 2019. It broke my heart to have her put down but she had health problems that were not going to get better. It took my mother and me until around February 2021 to start looking for another JRT. I fell in love with the breed when I got my JP Shortstop in March 2007. I had thought about getting another breed but I just kept wanting another JRT. So I found several kennels that breed them. When I looked on Sheri’s website and saw that she lives in Amity, I contacted her. Amity is an important and special place to me. My mom grew up there and I have family there. Some of who Sheri knows. She was so helpful explaining the purchasing process. I loved that Sheri sent weekly updates to my mom and me. She also sent us videos and pictures weekly of our puppies, Max and Molly! I watched the videos several times until it was time to pick them up. Thank you so much for our beautiful puppies!

Leota and Jennifer Harvey, Camden, Arkansas 2021.



I can not thank Antoine River Kennels enough for this baby. We have had her a week now and little Letty has the best temperament. She is the sweetest cuddle bug. I would definitely recommend and we are happy to be part of the family.

The Bentley family of Georgia 2021



We are so thankful for Sheri and our new baby Jeffrey! Sheri was amazing about sending updates as we waited for him to come home to us, and when he arrived she was so helpful! We love seeing all of her babies on her Facebook page, and the community that is brought together by these sweet pups. Jeff is so sweet, and I know it is because he was so loved and cared for before he came to us. Sheri is amazing to work with, completely transparent, and provides people with healthy, well adjusted pups to add to their families. We couldn’t be happier.

The Sanders family of Ark. 2021



Don’t know where to start. I know the love and dedication it takes to create a wonderful line of animals. I couldn’t be more happy with my hunt terrier Letti I purchased from Sheri. She is a perfect specimen in every way. She is smart, trainable, good working and hunting lines. She is a wonderful family dog that is well Mannered and social. The whole process from picking a puppy down to transporting her home was made easy by Sheri. Thank you so much for all you do!

Love Diane and Letti Maryland 2021




Traxx 2022

I recently had the privilege of purchasing an American Hunt Terrier puppy from Sheri and Billy York. I got to pick my little man, Traxx, from the litter when he was about a week old. I wanted a dog to be a companion, and hope to train him to help with wounded game recovery. The deciding factor for me on breeder selection was when I read about the early sensory stimulation program used at Antoine River Kennels. Sheri sent pictures each week, then videos along with updates on weight and things such as vet visits. The highlight of my week was receiving pictures and updates on my puppy. I enjoyed getting to meet Sheri and Billy, and getting a tour of their kennel. It was easy to see that they love their dogs and provide great care for them. Sheri has been available to answer any questions I have had via text. I can't recommend Antoine River Kennels highly enough! If you are looking for a new family member in the way of a puppy, look no further.

Wendell Rye - Western Arkansas 2021



Sheri is a one of a kind breeder. Not only did she advise us on a great new family member, she also provided us with weekly updates and photos prior to his arrival at our home. If you are searching for a great shorty Jack Russell puppy, look no further than Antoine River Kennels!!! The best!

The Garner family Fl. 2020



This is a huge thank you to Sheri York for our Bailey! After having a Jack Russell for over 17 years, we really did not know if we were up to committing to another dog. Sheri made all of our worries vanish when she showed us a picture of “Bailey”.

Sheri sent us weekly pictures or videos during his first weeks, along with stats of weight and length. The progression we saw made us fall in love with him before we ever met. Her professionalism was excellent. She made sure we had everything we needed when we picked him up, along with a few extras as a parting gift to Bailey.

He is a very lively puppy and so much fun!

For genuine service and care for the puppies, I would recommend Sherri to everyone looking to find a healthy, strong puppy as a companion.

K&B Ark 2020



I was so happy when I came across ARK KENNELS. Sheri was so nice and answered all my questions. She gave us weekly updates on our little girl. I would look forward to the day for updates. I would for sure get another puppy from her. My family & friends was very excited about the process of getting our new addition and they looked forward to the updates as well. I will be referring all my friends to ARK KENNELS if they are looking for Jack Russells.

The McDonald family of Cali. 2020



I just want to thank you Sheri York for my baby girl Shayla and my Tyra who I will get to bring home in January. It took me a while to find who I can trust and I can say you are a kind and trustworthy woman. You put the biggest smile on my face and filled the hole in my heart. My husband and I were lost after losing our two babies but, they had 16 wonderful years with us. I’m so glad I found you to fill that hole and if anyone out there wants Shorty Jack Russell’s I recommend Sheri York. She’s a vey kind trusting person and she will treat you right. So I just want to thank you again Sheri York Sheri’s babies are very healthy and well taken of.

Tammy Goforth Jones of Ark. 2020



I have always had big sporting dogs! Copper’s athleticism blows me away! Super agile with an awesome nose and wants to work! Copper trailed this one up! Wasn’t much blood! He has also trailed a hog up me as well! He has a spectacular nose on him and seems to know exactly what I want! He is bad-to-the-bone JR! Super proud of him! I am. Sheri’s JR believer!

M. Graham from Tx. 2020




I just wanted to come on here to say thank u so much to Mrs.

Sheri Counts York

for being so amazing and selling us one of ur many granddogs Miss Nala is already spoiled ROTTEN. I came across Mrs. Sheri back in September when my husband had been begging for a male jack russell. I found her page and was kinda skeptical at first but she was the sweetiest and the most honest person...she was able to answer all my questions and DID NOT push me one bit.... not only was she fast at getting back to me... she reassured me that I had came to the right place. After that all my worries started to became excitement because I knew I had to have a puppy . I was trying to keep this puppy a secret but couldn't bc I was so excited I was FINALLY gonna be able to make my hubby dreams a reality. So as the weeks went on EVERY week on the SAME day Mrs. Sheri would send us not only updates about our little girl but Pictures too. We fell more and more inlove with her every day. But then I lost my job and had to tell my hubby about it bc I didn't want to loose that baby girl I almost had paid off so my hubby was beside himself and started right where I had left off paying for his little girl. Well the day had FINALLY came where we were about to meet our baby girl and man u would have thought miss Nala and my hubby had won the jackpot they were both over the moon about meeting each when we picked her up Mrs. Sheri was there and sat and talked to us about our little girl and gave us a copy of EVERYTHING that miss Nala had went thier up to the meeting day. So ladies or even guys if u are EVER looking for a TRUE HONEST Breeder go check out Mrs. Sheri and I promise you, u will be thanking me later.

All the GREAT things about her

*when u pick up ur pup there's not a single flea on them

* they are CLEAN well keeped pups

* she has all the paperwork u need to be able to keep up with ur pup

* shes a Christian based breeder

So that means she's honest with you

* if u don't know something and want to know shes ALWAYS there to help answer your questions.

Anyways I 110% highly recommend Mrs. SHERI TO ANYONE.

Here's Miss Nala and my hubby. Hes so excited about his new truck riding buddy


Love the Morris Family of Hot Springs, Ark. 2020


From start to finish, working with Sheri was a pleasure. She was patient and pleasant, and greatly helped with getting my little Corgi shipped off to Canada. And Monty (my little corgi) has such a great personality, a playful little scamp that likes to nip my fathers toes and sleep under chairs. I could not have asked for a better addition to my family.

Ashley from Canada 2020


Sheri is very professional during the whole process. We received update of our puppy every week. Including photos, videos and how she has been take cared of. She is very patient with our questions and considerate. She is a very reliable breeder, I have introduced Sheri to my friends when they meet my cute girl.

The Fang family from California 2020


Hello! This is peaches our new family member!! I am so grateful to have met Sheri. I thought I would never find a true breeder who wasn’t a scam. Into I found Sheri! She send me pictures, and constant updates of my puppy. She made the process so easy for me. I am so grateful that she took great care of Peaches! May god bless you. I 100% recommend Sheri.

The Paxtor family of Tx. 2020


God bless Antoine River Kennel. Sheri has made this process of buying a puppy very easy and professional. This being my very first puppy she has made me feel at ease knowing my little puppy has been taken care of with the utmost love and care. I especially loved all the videos and photos in the weeks before her arrival to my home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Sheri!

The Leahy family from Charlotte N.C. 2020


Hi Everyone! I want you to meet our sweet new baby boy Mcdreamy! We have fallen so in love with him already! I go to church with Sheri and she is the sweetest! She is ABSOLUTELY great with all her babies! She takes such good care of them and she sends cute little videos and pictures each week to keep you updated on how their doing! Each Sunday I was able to talk to her and get all the latest updates and it was amazing! I 100% recommend Sheri at ARK in Amity if your searching for the perfect new addition! Thank you so much Sheri, Mcdreamy is such a cute little blessing and we LOVE him!

The Thomas family 2020



Me and my wife just purchased a hunter pup from Sheri and it was a painless great experience. Sheri boarded the pup for us 3 weeks and sent updates and photos/videos weekly. She even wanted the pups name so she could get her used to it. Anyone wanting a hunter or jack Russell I highly recommend this breeder you won’t find better service, honesty or anyone more caring about her breeds. I’d also like to add that while Sheri boarded moms pup till pick up she gave her 3rd round of shots trimmed her nails and kept us updated on her weight. Any further purchases of these breeds will definitely be done threw Sheri York.

 The Freeman family 2020



We had a wonderful experience working with Sheri! She is so kind and cares so much for her puppies. The process to apply was straightforward and easy, and she was very accommodating in meeting us halfway to get our new pup! She sent us photos and videos of our little guy every day before we were able to meet him, which meant so much to us. We love our little Leo and would highly recommend working with Sheri- thank you for helping us find our new furry friend!

The Morgan family from TN. 2020



Meet ZOOT from Antoine River Kennels of Amity, Arkansas, breeder Sheri Counts York . This is our first shorty Jack Russell. We are 7 hours away from Amity but Sheri worked from day one keeping us informed of Zoot’s weekly progress by sending us pictures and video making us love this little guy before even meeting him. The adopting process was super simple and after meeting Sheri in person it was obvious that she takes tremendous pride in her puppies and her kennel . She is a fantastic breeder and her puppies are proof of the quality of care they receive from even before birth. We are definitely satisfied with ARK of Amity !!!!!

The Tolbot Family from LA. 2020



Sierra is one of Bella’s 9 week old puppies. She is sweet and very playful. She is so pretty and loves to snuggle. Our family is now complete! Thank you for being so helpful throughout the entire process and very professional. I was impressed at how much you care about these babies and when I got the puppy I loved that all of your paperwork was very organized and you sent an extra bag of goodies!

The Moran Family from FL. 2020



Copper has made himself right at home--great personality. this is my first JR/small dog but so far Copper has been an absolute joy. Sheri was Super easy, helpful, and fun to deal with. we had to get a little creative on the delivery--Covid 19 and all. Copper is a hand full...exactly what i was hoping for.

The Graham Family from Tx. 2020



We got our new puppy from Sheri at Amity Arkansas near Arkadelphia Arkansas! The first phone visit we had she sent me pictures and a video. No problem choosing the one I wanted. The minute I saw her I knew she was the one. She is a doll. Healthy and happy. Would encourage anyone looking for a puppy to call Sheri. Thanks Sheri

The Dodson Family 2020



I picked up my Jack Russell Terrier yesterday. Had a great experience. Sheri sent me pictures and videos once a week along with updates on shots and how much Shelby weighed. I would recommend Sheri for your next puppy.

The Groen Family from TX. 2020



Bandit is a wonderful dog. We flew through puppy school. Bandit found it way too easy. In fact other than the distraction of having a bunch of puppies in the same place he did all tasks in the first few weeks. He was so board. I was referred to another trainer who specializes in working dogs. She told me she doesn’t train with puppies but after some quick talking on my part she agreed to test him. After he did a 10 minute down stay she agreed to take him into her advanced obedience class. He just loves the work. Learns each task in just a few minutes and is blowing those Dobermans out of the water. They laughed at us at first because he doesn’t fit the mold but he does the work. When he finishes advances obedience I plan to start obstacle training. We already did a small play course. Of course he finished it easily he just needs to do it off leash. Th say he is snare is an understatement. He is everything I could have asked for in a dog. An excellent companion and friend. I just need to keep his mind busy. That’s my challenge. I am sure I will be back to get a companion for him. Another jack is probably the only way to keep up with him. Thank you so much Sheri. He is the best. I will send you some photos when I can. It’s so hard to get him to be still long enough to get one

The Woods Family from Washington 2019

Update one year old:: Hi Sheri Today is Bandits first birthday. Thought I would say thank you for sending me such a wonderful dog. He is doing so well. He has progressed to the advanced class in his obedience training. I’m so proud of him. He is loved by all. He goes everywhere with me. I feel truly blessed. We go hiking several days a week. He does 5 miles on the hills with no problem. My husband says I love bandit more than him. He’s probably right. He is a bit over 15 pounds. He seems solid muscle. Thanks again and thank Lucy for me. Tell her Bandit is well loved and happy



I have purchased two Jack Russells from Sheri from two different litters. Both dogs are very sociable with people and other dogs. They are kind, smart, and loving. Working with Sheri is easy and hassle free. I would go back to her again and again if I were shopping for another puppy.

We had such a great experience getting our first Jack Russell from Sheri that we went back for another one. Rowdy was a year old when we got Elvis. It was great because they love each other. Elvis is wonderful. He is certainly all terrier. Sheri is great to work with and when we decide it is time to get another we will certainly get it from Sheri at Antoine River Kennel. I highly recommend Sheri. Elvis has been the perfect fit. He is handsome and loveable but he is a fearless little guy that we love beyond words.

 Melissa from Vermont. 2019



We have been shorty Jack Russell lovers and owners for almost 18 years now. When we began our search for our third newest addition we started asking other shorty owners and was led to Sheri and her adorable JRTs. Our little Moto was only four weeks old when we made our decision. The next task was waiting an intolerable four more weeks before we could bring her home. Sheri was wonderful, each week she would send us updates on her weight, any vet visit notes, along with photos and video so we could see how she was growing. When the day finally came for Moto to come home Sheri and her husband drove over four hours while we did the same meeting halfway. This little furry ball of joy rode an entire day without incident and quickly wound her way into our hearts. Within two days she taught herself how to go down the stairs after our three year old JRT Sprocket and within two more days she was already teaching herself how to go up the stairs. By ten weeks Moto made her first visit to the motocross track and has already ridden the dirt bikes and atv with no fear. Moto is showing us just how intelligent, quick-witted, curious, athletic and agile she is and is developing into. At now twelve weeks she is romping through the woods while we take afternoon hikes and is up to over a mile with no signs of stopping. She swiftly bonded with Sprocket, Apache and us and is working with learning her place with the cats while cuddling up and taking afternoon naps with them. Thank you for this adorable bundle of joy we couldn’t have asked for a more delightful little girl.

The Phillips/McPeak Family from TN. 2019



What a blessing Mrs. York and her puppies have been to our family. From the time we chose Flynn until my daughter was able to hold him for the first time, Mrs. Sheri made him a part of our family through constant updates. The purchasing process couldn’t have been easier. The transition to our home was flawless as well. The York’s are a great family raising great pups!!!

The Henley Family



I want to sing the praises of this wonderful breeder!!! Our son absolutely loves our dog (Buddy). Every single thing has been perfect!!! I will always recommend Ms. York and her dogs!!!!

The Bailey Family 2019



We started our research of Jack Russells over a year ago and wanted to start our breeding stock out the best we could afford. This includes health testing, looks, temperament, and breed standards. We didn't care about show quality, necessarily, but really just the health and personality of the dogs our pup came from. When I found Sheri, I didnt realize we had hit the jackpot. Not only is she a wealth of knowledge on the breed, she was so helpful in answering my million and one questions without ever complaining of my endless inquiries. She has been key in our success in our journey towards raising JRTs. Our Sisko has not only turned out exceptionally well in looks and health, but his personality is a home run. His health clearances are all superb and he is studly in every way. His nickname is Romeo as he is a lover and everyone who meets him wants a JRT! We highly recommend ARK for your future fur family member. Sheri is now a much loved friend of our family.

The Langle Family 2019



"A few year ago we got a puppy for my daughter, whom after a year, we had to put down. It was heartbreaking for her. Since then, we have been looking for her a new - perfect companion. We live on a working farm and my daughter is my husbands right hand (wo)man! We needed something that would love and protect her while out and about, while snuggling close and playing with her at home. I had a friend suggest a jack russel and sent me straight to Sheri. We were impressed with her kindness and willingness to answer any and every question we had. “Dixie Ann” was an answer to our prayers, and to Sheri’s prayers! Dixie and my daughter got along perfectly together. Since getting her, she hasn’t left her side for very long at all. In fact, Dixie Ann get’s along with all of my children, as well as me and my husband! We are forever grateful to our friend and to Sheri for introducing us to this amazing breed!”

The Lewis Family 2019



We were heartbroken when we had to say goodbye to our 14 year old baby girl Jack Russell this past August. The house was just too quiet without her; and so we decided we needed to find another shorty Jack right away. After looking all over the web, we happened on the EJRTCA site where Antoine River Kennels was listed. After sending off a quick message to Sheri York, I received a phone call back within 15 minutes. The first thing that Sheri said to me was how sorry she was about the loss of our baby. I instantly felt that she was the breeder for us. We selected our boy pup from a current liter she had available (4 weeks old at the time) and put down our deposit. Each week that passed while we waited for the pups to reach 8 weeks old, Sheri kept us updated with pictures and videos of our little guy, as well as any updates on his progress. She made the whole process of adopting our puppy so easy. We wound up adopting not just one pup, but two boys from the same liter. Both pups were healthy, have wonderful temperaments, and were very well socialized. We picked up our boys in person at the Antoine River Kennel, and Sheri and her husband, Billy, showed us around and spent time talking to us. They not only run a great breeding operation, but it’s apparent that they truly care about the animals. Without any hesitation, we would wholeheartedly recommend adopting a puppy from Sheri and Billy York.

"I had been looking and researching JRT breeders for many months and came across Sheri's dogs. I liked what I saw! Her dogs are the spitting image of what a true Jack should look like. I found so many breeders that are breeding dogs that are high in the rear. What a horrible look, bad conformation and bad structure. I couldn't believe people would actually breed dogs like that! Sheri's dogs have a level topline, just like it calls for in all the standards. I drove 5 hours to pick up our newest addition to the family. She is a true Jack, so playful, happy and ready for anything. I cannot recommend Sheri enough. Thanks so much for our precious little girl, she is a cherished member of the family." The Dorsey Family from MO. 2019



I would just like to share how Sheri has helped me with my new jack Russell puppy. I had a 14-year-old Jack Russell that he put down on Father’s Day I found her online in Arkansas and she was amazing in assisting me with purchasing this new puppy he is absolutely beautiful she made me feel comfortable buying a dog online it was the best experience I ever had he is an amazing dog from an amazing breeder who cares about her dogs.

We picked up our little stud puppy (Cash) from Mrs. Sheri on June 1st 2019 just four months after getting our little girl Molly. I can’t say enough about how much Mrs. Sheri and her husband Billy of Antoine River Kennels have helped make sure that we had the perfect pair of Shorty Jacks. Mrs. Sheri sent us pictures and videos weekly and kept us updated on the progress of our little stud. I can’t wait to see the puppies that this pair of Antoine River Kennels Jacks have. Thank you Mrs. Sheri we appreciate all that you have done to help us with our first pair of Shorty Jacks.

"There was this hole in my heart and household that was just begging to be filled with another bouncing baby JRT and Mrs.. Sheri and Antoine River Kennel definitely did not disappoint! After some discussions between my husband, myself, and Mrs.. Sheri it was decided that the Ellis family would welcome Gordie Howl into our home. I had found Antoine River Kennel and Sheri through Facebook and had been in touch with each other for about a year. I received a message one day of this sweet looking little boy and it was decided that he would be coming home to live with us. Mrs.. Sheri is also helpful with any questions you may have about her dogs, and it is a great pleasure to be able to make the drive to her wonderful home to pick up the puppy in person. Gordie is extremely active, entertaining, and loving. It is what I enjoy with this breed of dog. He is intelligent and curious, no animal or human on our property goes without puppy kisses daily. He enjoys riding around in the car and visiting our many friends. He especially loves treats and going for a shaved ice pup-cone down the street! We thank Mrs.. Sheri and Antoine River Kennels for allowing us to bring our cuddly little boy home!"

What a blessing it was to find Sheri at Antoine River Kennel and add our wonderful boy Boomer to the family! We heard about Sheri through the Short Jack Russells page on Facebook, and all the great recommendations we read came true. After we looked at her website, she sent us several photos and videos of the puppy we had our eyes on, and once we made the commitment to get him, Sheri kept us updated every week, regularly sending new photos and videos, keeping us informed about his vet checkups, and sharing other developmental milestones. As soon as we picked out “Boomer” as his name, she started using it with him, which was great! We drove 1,700 miles round trip to pick Boomer up, and it was worth every mile! Sheri has such a nice set-up for her dogs, and we can sincerely say that he came from a home with as much love for him as we have for him now in ours! Boomer has had a very smooth transition to our house. He’s so smart, full of personality and playfulness, but also so ready to snuggle up for kisses and quiet time. The second night we had him, he slept eight hours through without needing to go out, and he immediately was able to learn to use the doggie door. He loves to fetch and play with his rope tug toys, too. Before we found Boomer, we had an amazingly sweet 15-year-old Jack Russell, Indigo, that we sadly lost to kidney failure, and our hearts were so broken that we thought they’d never be whole again. But in his own gentle, loving way, Boomer has helped us heal. Even though we’ve only had him for a little while, we’ve already talked about adding a second puppy to our family, and we wouldn’t consider getting another Jack from anyone other than Sheri!

Ok y’all, this little bundle of Love that I call “Winston” is the sweetest baby ever. I know all dog parents believe theirs is the best but look at that face!

I just wanted to thank Ms Sheri York for making this experience so much fun! I have never purchased a puppy “online” before and frankly I was a little nervous. I am a Detective and have worked in Law Enforcement for over 20-years so to say I am skeptical would be an understatement. From the very beginning of this process Sheri put my mind at ease. I knew that I wanted a male Corgi and the basic color but that was about it. Sheri helped me through the whole process from day 1. I put down my deposit, picked out my baby, and anticipated a long wait until he was old enough to come home. Sheri made the waiting process fun! She messaged me with pictures, updates, and videos. Every week I got to see how much he had changed. Sheri was even great about the pick up, helping me work around my crazy schedule. I would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing a fur baby to buy from Ms. Sheri, not only are her dogs awesome, she truly cares about her potential pet parents. She will educate walk you through the process from selection to pick up! Thanks again Ms. Sheri, Y’all are the best !

My children and I purchased our sweet little Casper from Mrs. York a couple of weeks ago. He has been a blessing to our little family. He is so sweet and has a huge personality. He is even great with my 3 year old. Mrs. York went out of her way to meet us for pickup and worked with me thru all of the stress of road detours and me not knowing my way around. She was very kind and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a puppy.

The Campbell from OK. 2019


Almost a week ago I received Lily from the Bozeman Airport. I picked her out and I received weekly updates. Sheri was very helpful with all the “stupid” questions that I had. The puppy contract made me feel at ease knowing that I am trusting someone from several states away to send me a puppy. Lily arrived happy and healthy. However when at the vet, my vet saw some issues with her lower canines. I took pictures of everything and sent them to Sheri right away. She responded and by the next morning she had refunded me what the surgery is going to cost me to get Lily’s lower canines growing in the right direction. I have told Sheri several times she is my breeder forever now. Also I will recommend her to anyone. She truly loves every single dog/puppy and it shows through out every conversation we have had. Thank you so much Sheri for my wonderful Lily!!!
The Harper family from Montana. 2019



I just got a corgi boy from Sheri last week. I was being a little careful when I first contacted Sheri because I was personally being scammed before (and encountered scammers a couple more times) but Sheri eased my concerns right away by providing real time video and photos of the puppies to prove that she does have the puppies with her. She was very responsive and provided lots of updates on the time that she promised, and at last, we did receive our puppy on time- and yes it's the same puppy that we saw on the photo and video We have had our boy for 6 days now and he is very playful, energetic, healthy, love to interact with us (sometimes too much LOL). Sheri also follow up with us almost daily to see how the puppy is doing, make sure that we receive the paperwork and have our boy checked with the vet. I'm so glad that I found Sheri, who is proud and care about of her puppies and reputation. I would definitely recommend Sheri to anyone else who wants a Corgi.

8 weeks
1 yr. old

I would like to share my experience with Mrs. Sheri at Antoine River Kennels in Amity, Ark. I had just lost my male JRT “Partner” and was kind of lost without him. My sister had rescued Partner and insisted that I took him home which didn’t take much convincing once I saw him. Well when I lost Partner my sister immediately told me that I should go ahead and find another one so the search began. I talked to several breeders and Mrs. Sheri had all the answers to my questions and actually had 1 female available at the time of or conversation. Mrs. Sheri sent me pictures and videos of the little girl she called “G” pictures of the parents and that’s really all it took. I made the 8 hour round trip to pick up my puppy and she was just as expected perfect. Well “G” has now become Molly and I could not be any happier with my decision. Thank you Mrs. Sheri York.

Moe from Louisiana 2019



I absolutely love my puppy Daisy that I purchased from Sheri York at Antoine River Kennel! Sheri is a very nice lady and was quick to send videos and photos of the pups that were available so that we could choose our favorite. Daisy is healthy, smart and very friendly. She loves being held and it is obvious that she was getting the right amount of play and socialization which is something that is very important to me. Sheri offered to show me her adult dogs/breeding stock and every one of them looked great. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a great puppy.

The Holmes family of OK. 2019



My sweet Elsie is an amazing puppy! Sherri kept me up to date with my weekly pix that I couldn’t wait to get....then had to share them with everyone Love my baby girl!!

Lisa from ARK 2019



I recently lost my lil short leg Jack Russell Sept/2018, and was completely lost and miserable with out her, she was a angel. One night I'm sitting looking at pictures and running around online and out of nowhere, I come across Mrs Sheri York's website on Jack Russell Shorties. After reading the testimonials of past clients I was shocked so I sent her a message and than called her, she spoke a good while about her kennel, Antoine River Kennels, she than sent me pics of the baby I chose and videos. She continued to do this weekly until I got her to her forever home. Mrs Sheri is far above many breeders I have seen in my 50 years.. I am a Disabled Veteran and have had 2 service pets, now this lil girl will be my next. This entire experience was great, she takes amazing care of these babys and truly I am amazed at her actions, she is very good Puppy. Sheri set up everything to have her sent to me, she flew her out to me in West Virginia, You can't go wrong getting a puppy from Antoine River Kennel. I give her 100% awesome at what she does.

Todd from West Virginia 2019



Sheri got a call from me when my 12 year old Jack Russell was Dying . I asked her if she had a boy and she did . The little boy is a sweetheart snuggle bunny just like my Jack Russell was. She helped fill a hole in my heart and I love the boy I named Dylan. She will always get my business because I’ll never quit having jacks

My puppy Rowdy came from Sheri's Antoine river kennel. He is gorgeous and healthy. If I ever decide to get another Jack Russell terrier it will be through her. She kept me informed with pictures and text as he was growing. He flew from Arkansas to Vermont. He did very well with that and she made she that he had a safe flight. Sheri is a sweet lady that cares about her Jack's.

I highly recommend her.

Melissa from Vermont. 2018



It was a joy purchasing our English Jack Russell terrier Puppy from Sherri at Ark Kennel. She was friendly and easy to work with and she provided us weekly updates and professional quality photos of our puppy. We waited the 8 weeks and then made the drive to her kennel in Arkansas. Sherri recommended a local campground that was really nice and not far from her place. We enjoyed touring her kennel and seeing all of her dogs. They were all happy, healthy and well cared for .

I highly recommend Sherri and Ark kennel.

The Urie family from Texas 2018



I just want to take a moment to share my experience with buying a puppy from Sheri Counts York. I have nothing, but wondering things to say. She spends the time and money to make sure her puppies are clear of any genetic issues. And gives them the best care. And when your pup arrives (mine I had shipped) it arrives healthy and happy. I would refer anyone who wants a good quality pup to buy one from Sheri! Here’s a picture of my little Reata! shes and absolute doll baby. Thank you so much.

The Greer family from Montana 2018


We had an absolutely amazing experience buying our baby Pickle from Sheri. I did a lot of research about corgis and ran into some sellers whom I was leery of and the puppies they were selling. When I saw that she had a litter of corgis for sell I began researching her and her kennel. I felt good about buying our baby from her based on Facebook feeds I saw and reviews. Through the whole process Sheri sent pictures and videos of our baby to show how she was growing and playing. She answered every question I had and calmed any fears I had about our new fur baby. The day we went to pick her up Sheri had a whole folder put together with all of our baby’s information and shot records. We walked around and saw her farm. We got to meet my Pickle’s Mom and Dad and some siblings and other animals she had. The building she keeps the dogs in is amazing. Heated and air conditioned with lights so no one is in the dark, the radio was playing, and each pen has a doggie door to go outside to a fenced area to go potty or play. Very large pens for the puppies to run and play with lots of food and water. Everything was very clean and well maintained. All of her animals are well taken care of which made us feel even better about our choice. Pickle is a happy, healthy, playful pup that is an amazing addition to the family!

Susan Harris 2018



It has been an amazing experience adopting from Antoine River Kennel. We placed a deposit before our pup was born and got updates on how momma (Bella) was doing. We got regular updates from Sheri and the pics were amazing. We made the drive to pick up our little guy and were welcomed into their home. We had quite a chat with them. It was evident they love animals and I am glad. They even welcomed our other fur children and talked and played with them. The puppy immediately bonded with all of us and his new fursisters. I would highly recommend Antoine River Kennel to anyone looking for a new family member.

the Stidham family from Ohio 2018



First of all I have to say that Mrs. Sheri has been a wonderful help with all my questions about her pups and has given me quite a bit of information to go with our newest family member. I found Mrs. Sheri and Antoine River Kennels through a post on Facebook and from there the actual website for the kennels. What really caught my attention though was a small bright eyed Jack Russell puppy with a heart shaped nose. After some discussions, we decided to go ahead and add him to our family. I spent 17 years with my first Jack Russell and I have missed the intelligence and large character that the breed offers. We chose to pay a visit to the kennels to pick up our little boy. Mrs. Sheri and her husband were very friendly and showed us around to see the pup's parents. All the dogs were very active and friendly toward us and of course our puppy was excited as much as we were. We have not been disappointed at all with our new puppy. He is lively, has quite the charming character, and is showing a lot of intelligence in the week that we have had him here at home. He's been anywhere and everywhere we can take him. He loves car rides and enjoys running around on our many acres of land. We wouldn't trade him for the world. So we give a big thank you to Antoine River Kennels, and of course Mrs. Sheri, for allowing us to add our little energetic Indiana to our family!

Best Wishes and Puppy Kisses from Indy & The Ellis Family from Indiana (2018)



What a pleasure it has been to work with Antione River Kennels in adding a four legged member to our family! Sheri answered every question I had and filled in with useful information I never would have thought to ask. We toured the kennel and met our Buddy’s parents and siblings. I feel Sheri truly takes the time to know her clients and takes a real interest in matching families with her pups. The entire process really sets all parties up for success. If I could have gotten away with it we would have taken two of Sheri’s babies home with us! I hope we can be repeat customers!

the Cullens family 2018


We picked our baby up today from the airport. My kids and I are so very thankful for Sheri York, at Antoine River Kennel. Sheri is a wonderful person and absolutely cares about her puppies. She takes the time to send pictures and videos every week. It was pleasure working with her.

Jaclyn from Alabama 2018



We have never purchased an animal via Online, let alone one that would have to fly to a different state. Until just recently I put my trust into Sheri at Antoine River Kennel and I’m glad I did because now my dad has such a cute healthy puppy that is amazing. Sheri is very kind and answered all questions that we had, updated photos and made this experience pleasant.

Thanks Again Sheri!

Kristy Buttera ( Wisconsin ) 2018



We can't thank Sheri York, her husband and Antoine River Kennel enough for the newest member of our family. Sheri genuinely cares about her puppies as well as her clients. She answered all of my questions and also asked me questions to make sure we found the perfect pup for our family. The transaction and shipping went off without a hitch and Tucker arrived happy and healthy. My Vet even commented on how well socialized he was. He gets along well with other dogs and loves everyone he meets. We couldn't be happier with him If you are looking for a puppy that is happy, healthy, well socialized, full of spunk and personality, look no further than Sheri York and Antoine River Kennel, you won't be disappointed. In with our pup !!!

The Wright Family from Central Illinois 2017



Absolutely the best experience imaginable when purchasing a new pet. We searched all over the state, to find out that a breeder was just 30 minutes from our home. We would've driven 12 hours if needed after being treated the way we were. I don't have a lot of experience buying dogs from breeders, but I can't imagine it can get any better than this. Each and every dog at the kennel is well taken care of, and the owners are sweet, caring, people. We were told to let them know if we wanted updated pictures while we were waiting on our pup to be ready to come home. So we would ask weekly for a picture, and within 30 minutes we had them. Also, professional pictures were taken on two separate occasions and sent to us as well. We couldn't be happier with our purchase. Not only is our new puppy healthy, and happy, but the customer service makes it that much better! Thank you so much!

I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with Antoine River Kennel. Sheri York really showed great concern and care for her dogs!!! She was very descriptive in her messages to me.By far, she has been the best breeder. I highly recommend her. She is very sweet . The kennel is super clean with happy healthy dogs. I love my little Jack Russel that I got from her .I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

Thank you for this opportunity and he is just what we were missing in our home. He has both of us hooked on him. My Boys are 18 and 19 years old and we have our new home together since February and I have finished decorating it. We have been doing some traveling but I was ready for a new baby to come home too.

Reginald from Huston Texas 2017



After two years of my husband and I trying to decide if we wanted another JR, I came across Sheri's JR page. As I looked at the pictures, I fell in love with the cutest little girl ever. Knowing she was in Ark. and we were in Va. I figured there was no way I could make it work. After chatting with Sheri, and her giving me options for transport the ball started rolling. Sheri was so helpful making all of this possible. I loved getting weekly updates and pictures of our Sadie. Sheri was always eager to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend buying a JR from Sheri. She delivered a happy healthy puppy as promised.

Robbie from Virgina 2017


My husband had finally convince me to get a puppy instead of a baby. We were looking online and stumbled upon Sheri’s post with her new litter of corgi’s. I was so excited to see that they were reasonably price. We picked out our puppy and put down the deposit. Sheri was great she would send us a picture every week and sometimes a video. The time came for us to pick up our new baby and we arrived at the farm. My husband looked at me and said let’s get this puppy and go. I agreed. We ended up staying 1 1/2 hours. Sheri and her husband Billie were so friendly and welcoming. They showed us around and showed us the parents and were they keep the puppies. It’s was just so great! If you are looking to buy a puppy these are one of the best people. Our puppy is very health my and sweet you can tell the puppies are well taken care of.

Keri from Word Ark. 2017



Sheri is an awesome lady to work with on getting a Jack Russell. I received a beautiful little girl with lots of personality and spunk that fits into our family perfectly. She made the process very simple and exciting for my family. She sent us updates and pictures of our little Neeka until we got to bring her home. Thank you Sheri for our new baby girl.

Rachel from Russellvile, Ark, 2017



Sheri and her husband are wonderful people! I was looking for a JR as I had two previously and absolutely loved them. I was looking for a specific color, features, spots, and of course it had to be a female. I had been searching and searching and I saw them on Facebook so instantly messaged Sheri to find more out about her puppies. She was so helpful and prompt in answering all my questions. She sent me pictures weekly and updated me weekly on how she was doing and growing. My mom and I drove 882 miles for Cricket and would do it again in a heartbeat for another one of her puppies.

Lexie from Minnesota 2017


My husband and I had a female JRT for 16 1/2 years and immediately purchased a little boy JRT but knew it would take some time to find the female pup I was looking for. I had specific traits I was looking for in the female. I was lucky during my search to have Sheri York's name given to me. Once I got to talking to Sheri I realized she fully understood what I was looking for, the size, weight, features. We truly enjoyed how she would take weekly pictures of our little Sweetie Pie and send to us. She was very accommodating on picking her up or making arrangements to delivery her to us. Sweetie Pie is a very sweet pup, but can hold her own with our other JRT. They are best friends and it is very enjoyable to watch them together. We got Sweetie Pie on April 20, 2017, had an awesome vet checkup and still going through her vet checkups! She is still small which is what we were looking for with a strong muscular statue which is hard to find! She is a smooth coat with beautiful markings. We would recommend Antoine River Kennel to anyone looking for a JRT.
Brent and Tammy Porter, Oklahoma City, Ok, June 11, 2017.



I found Sheri on Facebook and she happened to have the cutest boy pup available. Sheri was so helpful and friendly, answering all my questions and sending me pics and videos often. The purchase and shipping process went without a hitch. Jake arrived clean, happy, healthy, and with an abundance of welcome home kisses. We can't thank Sheri enough for this sweet guy. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a JRT.

Cindy B. from Minnesota 2017



Sheri was an absolutely wonderful person to work with! She sent pictures every week and answered any questions I had! She worked with us on pick up and made our experience amazing! We love our little Beau. He is a great addition to our family!

Burns family from Pawhuska, Oklahoma 2017



For my first puppy that I have bought by myself Sheri gave an awesome experience. She made it a very easy process and not only that but sent the best pics while my little boy was still a baby. I thought that was extra special since I couldn't see him then. She also made available pics of the parents which was awesome too. If I ever wanted another puppy I would definitely go through her again. My boy is now 12 weeks and doing great!

Sonnie from Oklahoma 2016



I have bought two of my precious baby's from Sheri ! I wouldn't trade them for nothing in the world. Roscoe goes everywhere with me and he's the healthiest bouncing baby there is. I could t imagine life without one of Shery baby's now. She's an outstanding person all together and a great breeder. I recommend her to everyone and Roscoe is a great poster child for her. There's not a place I don't go people don't tell me he's absolutely beautiful and the nicest jack Russel they have ever saw. He's even a great internet sensation and star. He has his own 1565 followers and they can't get enough of him. A+++ breeder in every way. Recommend her every day in every way...

Shirley 2016



The little one is Jesse the Jack Russell that I got from Sheri Counts York. I had found another one but the lady backed out on me and I put an ad out for an honest Jack Russell breeder and found Sheri. She showed me this dog and I fell in love instantly I paid for her mediately and waited for her eight week birthday to get here so that I could get her. Sheri was so easy to work with she sent me pictures every week so I could see how she was growing and I would love to buy more from Sheri. My other Jack is 11 years old and Jesse's mamas . if you're looking for a puppy look to Sheri. She won't steer you wrong I just love her.

Donna L Wallace from Montana 2016



Sheri has the Best Puppies! And is true in her descriptions of her pups! We bought Dabo from her, site unseen...a perfectly healthy boy, short and sassy, as described...we couldn't be happier!

Becky Branham Yarborough from S. Carolina. 2016



I bought a puppy from Sheri 1-13-17. He is everything she said he was. We took him for vet check and got a 100 we love our little guy. She worked with us on picking him up thank you. Would recommend her to anyone that's looking for Jack Russell shorty

Vicki Sumler 2016


We got Pepper from Sheri in November 2015. She is my baby. She rides in a special carrier on back seat of my Goldwing trike. She really thinks it is hers. Sheri was great to work with and kept me updated with pictures. And now she's all grown up. But still my baby. I'm looking forward to getting another baby from Sheri in 2018!

Donita 2016



 I am a hobbiest breeder of Jack Russells. I met Sheri on fb shortly before her August 16 litter arrived. I am so happy I found her! I bought the cutest lil shorty female. She appears to be very healthy and happy pup. We had a great transaction and Sheri even met me in Branson, half way for both of us. I would definitely buy another one of her dogs.

Anne Taylor from Lathrop, Missouri 2016



About Sheri and her pups. I've bought more than one and they have been healthy amazing loving and brings love home. Her pups are nothing short of the best. Besides her pups Sheri goes that extra mile I've never met anyone do. I plan on Rigs being with me for life but if I ever decide to purchase a perfect joyful intelligent pup, it will be from Sheri who is not only kind but very professional. I trust only her when it comes to these amazing pups. If you want a jack Russell, only place Togo is to Sheri Counts York!! God bless all!

Craig Beck from Russellvile, Ark. 2016



We recently picked up our 2 JRT puppies that we purchased from ARK Kennel (Antoine River Kennel). Sheri was wonderful to work with. She answered all my questions, helped me with making my selection, since we were not able to view the puppies in person. We even got weekly updates with new pictures of our puppies. When we received the puppies, they were clean, healthy, bright, active, well handled and very affectionate. I would not hesitate to do business with Sheri again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking to add a puppy to their family. We are beyond happy with our JRT puppies. Thank you Sheri !!

Arlene Clemence from Boyles Alberta, Canada 2016



These puppies are all so precious!!! It was love at first sight at the airport. Their flight didn't bother them at all! There's just one thing better than ONE Jack Russell puppy! It's 3!!! Beau, Star and Briley give us lots of love,joy and laughter!

Deborah Bottoms Barron from Fllorida 2016



We are over the moon with our new puppy. I loved working with Sheri, she is like working with a long time friend. We were updated and fell in love each week with our updated pictures of our girl. We got her this week and the pup took right to all of us, she was everything I hoped for and so much more, she is spicy, fun, silly, soooo cute, and super lovable. She is only 8 weeks old but we can say she is super smart and catches on so fast. She loves our grandkids and cant wait to spend the next 20+ years enjoying her. - Her parents are Tiny and Peggy Sue. I can honestly say that after I lost my JTR last October after 15 years, I didn't think I could ever find another dog to love that much and I was oh so WRONG. Thank you Sheri for raising such great lil darlings.

Deb Mills from Ohio 2016



Sheri was very nice from the get go. She went Above and Beyond to make sure I got this Puppy. THIS lil girl was just meant for me. For that I am forever thankful. The puppy was clean and cute and just pure perfection for this amazing breed. She is so lively and smart and a real pleasure to watch play. Her name is Vidalia, like the sweet Onion and she made me cry the first time I laid eyes on her. Sheri had all her paperwork in order and explained things nicely. She was great to work with. I would not hesitate to purchase another puppy from her.

Missy from SW Missouri. 2016



 I've found Sheri York a pleasure to deal with. She strikes me as honest and passionate about her Jack Russell Terriers. The puppy I purchased from her is everything I'd hoped for. He is alert, active, healthy and friendly. Thank You, Sheri!

Loretta Foster 2016



 Our new jack russell, Max is the perfect addition to our family! I cannot thank Mrs. Sheri enough for making this a great adoption experience. Photos, updates, and answering any questions I had made the experience wonderful and if you are looking to buy a puppy, I know you will not be disappointed with Antoine River Kennel!

Samantha Graham 2015

 Sheri Counts York you did a great job keeping us updated while we were waiting for him to get big enough to come home. Love him to pieces, the little rascal!

 Hello everyone, my name is Sara Sepeda and this is Jazzi. We purchased Jazzi from Mrs .York after searching for another Jack Russell to add to our family ,we had our first Jack Russell ,Lyli, for several years and we couldn't see ourselves owning another breed. Our Jazzi has been a joy to our girls and our grandchildren. She is so playful and fun to be around. And we thank Mrs. York for trusting us to give one of her puppies a home. I am so thankful that I saw her ad while visiting my children in Litlle Rock, Arkansas. We were lucky to be able to be one of the few picked to be a forever family for one of Mrs. York's puppies. Jazzi has her New home in west Texas and she's loving it! Thanks Sheri for our loving Jazzi!

I purchased a precious little boy puppy from Sheri. He is the runt of the litter and just what I was looking for. Sheri is a wonderful lady and it has been an awesome experience working with her. I could not have asked for a better outcome.

 It was just overall a very good experience! The communication was excellent and even though we have moved to Houston.... we will gladly come home to Arkansas to purchase any future jack from you!!!

Our puppy is perfect for us. We did not want a lap dog, but she loves to be petted. We own a business and she thinks all customers that show up are here to pet her, lol. She learned to "sit" after the first week here, and certainly knows what "no" means lol. Very smart, alert, and a beautiful little dog. We get a lot of compliments on her. Her coat has turned a bit copper like her sire.

 I purchased cute little buddy from Sheri and he is just what I was looking for. Full of energy without being really hyper. Sheri is a wonderful Christian lady that is a pleasure to know!

 Thank you so much for the puppy. The night when we had got him all he did was sleep. But yesterday he turned into a total different puppy. His personality is awesome. And if anyone is looking for a Jack Russell I will be sure to send them your way. Thank you again and God Bless!

We got a puppy from Sheri for my birthday and he is the sweetest puppy ever! The whole family is already in love with him. We have only had in a couple of days and he is already using him pee pad and is great at night. I recommend anyone in search for a loving family dog to call Sheri. We could not be more happy with our little guy! Thank u so much Sheri!!

 Sheri we love our girl "Piper" so much <3 She is HOME!!! Our 13 year old Jack Russell "Trixee" passed away 12/2/2012, a very sad day for our family. It has taken us almost a year to decide we had to have another Jack and "Piper" has filled the order. She is beautiful, such a joy and smart as she can be. She already makes us laugh and has not cried one night. Our 4 year old Miniature Schnauzer "Roxee" was a little jealous at first an decided to ignore and hide from the puppy, but now she and "Piper" have a great time playing chase and running all around the big back yard. Piper has already mastered the doggie door and loves going in and out at will. We could not ask for a better pup and thank you so much for making it possible for us to own her. I already have friends asking for your web site so they can get on the list for a pup. Thanks again :)

Duke thinks its his brother and he is small & Barkley thinks he is big it's so cute! They are inseparable! Thanks again we couldn't love him more!!!

If your looking for a jack russell then this is the place. We got my daughter one that she named Jesse. She sent pictures and kept us posted of her progress every week. She died and my little girl was devastated. Although it was not her fault when Sheri found out she made arrangements to get my daughter another pup. We named her Sugar and she is spoiled rotten. I would highly recommend Sheri as a breeder, she went above and beyond what I could have ever have asked for. If you are looking for someone that cares more about their customers than they do making a buck than your at the right place. Thanks again Sheri.

 Before Christmas last year our kids beagle got ran over, shortly there after I made contact with sheri who sold me a sweet jack russell shortie was named Titan. He is everything we wanted and just what sheri described. Our pup wasn't quite ready by Christmas so sheri was nice enough to stay in touch and send me pictures and updates weekly until we got our pup. I wrapped some of the pics for the kids to open on Christmas Day. Don't hesitate to do business with this family if you need an award winning a jack russell pup you will get everything promised and then some. Super sweet people. Highly recommended.

I have 3 JRT shorty pups from Sheri, and could not be happier! I have always been a lover of the breed and Sheri's pups have every wonderful quality a person could want in a jack. They play so well with my children and even our little baby. They have been easy to potty train as well. I am very pleased and I highly recommend Sheri as a breeder. She was very helpful and keeps in touch. All around I could not be happier.

Was looking forever for the perfect dog for my kids. Came across Mrs. Sherri and her Jack Russell Shortie pups. Theses pups were adorably pictured in cups. We decided to add one to our family and have not ever regretted it. The puppy has never been sick, has a wonderful temperament, and is unbelievably smart. Mrs. Sheri always sent me pictures of our beloved Honey, which is name, and her communication was always spot on, as well as timely. She made the transaction a breeze. And she provided the shots, vet visits and maintenance. Loved doing business with her and plan on doing more in the future.
