Nimh Kennel
Rat Terriers


We have decided to keep Peter here & have put Jack up for adoption to a loving pet home.

Malachi is getting a new home on Sunday where he has been renamed Digger.


Updated the Available Dogs/Puppies page.  Denym is now available for adoption to a pet/performance home.


Reconstructing our gallery to fit in the new site.  Please bear with us during the transfer.  Will also be doing some much needed cleaning up of the gallery.  I’ll keep you posted!


I posted a new Article Worth Reading about CDA. 

Also updated my Past Dogs page, pictures coming soon.

Updated pictures on the Available dogs/puppy page as well.


Nimh Kennel is proud to announce that we have decided to work on DNA testing our dogs for Primary Lens Luxation. This DNA profile will tell us of carriers, affected & clear dogs in our program to strengthen the health and integrity of our lines and puppies we produce.

Look for results on the dam/Stud pages for each dog. Any dog affected will be removed from our program. Carriers will be carefully crossed as to not produce affected.
