Customer Reviews

Our loyal and happy customers share their experience with us

After the loss of our previous JRT we were looking to find a good reputable licensed breeder. We were fortunate to have found Stonequarry Jack Russell Terriers which provided us with the confidence to purchase our little Annie. All boxes were ticked for the requirements of a good breeder. We are very pleased and impressed with the excellent service provided by Nicki who kept us up to date with Annies progress while awaiting her arrival to our home. We highly recommend Stonequarry Jack Russell Terriers to anyone serious about buying a good healthy puppy from an excellent breeder such as this.

When I first contacted Nicky about three years ago she was very helpful, friendly and informative. Her love for Jack Russells and knowledge of the breed was very evident when speaking to her. I finally met Nicky in May 2020 when I picked up my first Main Register bitch Stonequarry Cupcake ‘Maggie’. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Nicky and all her Jack Russell Terriers. The Stonequarry Jack Russell Terrier Stud was excellent and well set up. Nicky was very well-organised having all the paperwork ready for us as well as a Royal Canin puppy pack with blanket and soft toy. Our new pup had been bathed that morning and ready to go to her new home. I have since become a registered JRT breeder with Dogs NSW with prefix/stud name ‘Coorabin’. My boy Tobyjack Bobby McGee was sire to one of Nicky’s litters and I kept little Benji out of this litter. I also purchased a new bitch pup off Nicky to add to my stud. Benji and Ariarne are now 9 months old and great fun. I have also seen Nicky’s new set up for her dogs which is just fabulous. I highly recommend Stonequarry Jack Russell Terrier Stud and look forward to also breeding smooth coat JRT’s with good temperaments.

I cannot recommend Stonequarry Jack Russells enough! We were on the wait list for around 2 years because Stonequarry Jacks are in such high demand. But we are so glad we waited as we now have the perfect puppy for our family. Nicki Mallam has just been wonderful to deal with, and so helpful with advice and tips any time I had a question. Highly Recommend!! Everyone is so smitten with our Luna and we always get asked where we found such an amazing puppy, and I am more than happy to tell the world about Stonequarry Jack Russells! Thank you Nicki Mallam.

We can not recommend Stonequarry Jack Russells high enough. We tell everyone where we got our little fella. He has the sweetest, most beautiful family oriented nature and is truly the most gorgeous Jack Russell you ever did see.
We were thrilled with the enormously personal experience we had dealing with Nicki, who provided us updates on how our little fella was going before it was time to collect him and take him home!
We were thrilled to see where our pup had grown up, and been raised, amongst a family on a gorgeous property. We were impressed with the care and consideration taken in his handover (freshly bathed with beautiful handmade grooming soap, and with a bag full of goodies and his puppy photos to say the least).
We will never go elsewhere for a pup ever again!

We received our sweet boy Ted from Stonequarry JRTs September 2021.  We had been on Nicki’s waiting list for about 18months (it was well worth the wait). Nicki helped me to surprise my partner Bob with Ted’s arrival on the day of his birthday which was amazing!

I can’t fault my dealings with Nikki, from the moment we went onto the wait list we were kept up to date via her newsletters and anytime I ever had any questions she was generous with advice and abundance of knowledge.  Then when our litter arrived I received regular phone pics of our pup which really made it so exciting in the last few weeks of waiting.  Since Ted came home Nikki has continued to provide support and advice as we’ve needed it. 

As for Ted himself, he is such a sweet pup.  He has a lovely nature and our vet (once a breeder of JRTs) is so impressed with him.  Everywhere we go, people ask where we got little Ted from and comment on him.  He has brought so much joy to us – we can’t thank Nicki at Stonequarry enough.

Being a dog family with other breeds, we purchased our first JRT from Nicki as we knew she came highly regarded. We were not expecting how happy we would be! Everything she said our Stella would be as a JRT she is, and so much more!
Her dogs are top quality, the kennels and conditions for her dogs immaculate, and the care of her puppies is second to none. Everything that could be done to help prepare her pups transition to their new home is covered and she was hugely supportive and knowledgeable to answer all of our questions. We could not recommend her and her dogs highly enough, and would not buy another JRT from anywhere else.

We purchased a Jack Russell from Stonequarry Jack Russells in March 2020, and thoroughly can recommend anyone who is looking to purchase a Jack Russell from a breeder, she kept me well informed of her upcoming puppies and was given excellent service when it came to choosing a puppy. On the day of our pick up of our Jack Russell we have not looked back at all she is everything and more we could of hoped for.
Thank you Nicki of Stonequarry Jack Russell’s for our beautiful girl Ivy.

Sincere, professional, honest, ethical, admirable. Amazingly gorgeous pups, raised with care, consideration and love.  

Recently we received the most delightful, little female pup from Nicki.  We named her Lucy. She is a superb, physically healthy specimen with an amazing personality, indicative of this fine breeding program. Already she demonstrates wonderful loving, endearing qualities and is so confident – fearless and adventurous. She simply adores meeting and greeting both humans and dogs. She joyfully rushes up to both, tail wagging madly with excitement, and captivates them with her joyfulness, loving nature and positive energy. People and dogs are delighted and automatically reciprocate. Their day is lifted. 

We have two older Jackies, Lexi (17) and Sam (9). Lexi understandably just wants to be comfortable and left in peace, but Sam adores Lucy and plays with her endlessly, matching her energy … almost. He’s become her best friend, teacher and protector. He’s also found his inner puppy again. 

We were impressed by the way Nicki demonstrates a sincere love, affection, and care for her pups. This may well be the element that encourages, develops the loving qualities her dogs display. Furthermore, her breeders are treated with great care regarding their health and well-being. We were also very impressed with the way she insists her females have satisfactory breaks between breeding seasons. Stonequarry don’t pump pups out like a dog factory but approach the breeding in an ethical manner with care and consideration, which is most pleasing and gratifying to see.  

Communication is very professional too. During the inevitable waiting process for Lucy, we found Nicki easy to contact. Any text or email query would get an immediate response. She was very upfront with the wait time for Lucy and kept us updated regularly with progress reports. 

Again, we were incredibly impressed with the design and set up of the facilities. Nicki and her husband have created a delightful environment for the Stonequarry Jackies. Their beautiful property of some acres set on rolling paddocks and bushland has allowed them to be able to create an ideally large, secure, grassed exploration area and common play space for the dogs and pups. As well, each dog or group of newborns with mother has a superb large modern individual kennel and large grassed individual run. The planning demonstrates great thought and care to ensure the best possible space for the dogs to enjoy and express themselves.  

The main building is beautifully crafted incorporating recycled elements using the footprint of an old barn with beautiful hardwood timbers claimed from the original structure, which add a rustic charm and authenticity to the new building’s appearance.  

Stonequarry set the finest of examples for puppy breeders.

We have been so lucky over the years to have had two healthy and beautiful natured and beautiful looking Jack Russell puppies from Nicki at Stonequarry Jack Russells.

Nicki absolutely loves all of her dogs and puppies and takes such wonderful care of them all-which was such an important aspect to us when choosing a breeder to buy puppies from.
Her knowledge and expertise with the Jack Russell breed is unsurpassed and she includes a comprehensive information pack when you take home your puppy which we found invaluable. The kennel facilities there are doggy palaces (no wonder all her dogs and puppies are healthy and happy! ) Both our dogs were healthy, well adjusted and  just beautiful natured and looking dogs. If we could rate Nicki and her pups higher than 5 out of 5 we would!! Photo pictured is of our recent puppy ‘Boo’.

I made the decision to get a new puppy A Jack Russell of course and started my search for a breeder. Nicki’s website Stonequarry Jack Russells attracted me as it was so professional and informative. What an experience from the time I contacted Nicki I knew I had chosen the right breeder. Nicki was patient and knowledgeable and endeavoured to choose the right puppy for me. I would email, ring and Nicki always made the time to keep me informed.

When my puppy Billy arrived our family was so excited, constant updates on his arrival filled me with such joy and excitement, everyone knew I was getting a new puppy . When I saw Billy and his sisters and they were all wriggling and playing in the most beautiful little cubby house I melted. Of course Nicki was so helpful, talking about their personalities and matched Billy with me, I almost cried when I saw him. Nicki took the time to meet with myself and family even before Billy arrived and went out of her way to show me Billy’s mum and dad which made me feel very confident that the new member of our family would be perfect.

I have nearly driven Nicki mad with constant photos of Billy and regular updates because he is so funny and fills me with so many laughs and such joy on a daily basis. I can highly recommend Nicki and Stonequarry Jack Russells as a breeder, extremely professional, the puppies are simply gorgeous and grow into such great companions.

I simply love “Billy”.  Thank you Nicki
