Wayne and Nita May

Welcome to May Day Jack Russell Terriers.

We purchased our first Jack Russell 19 years ago and life has never been the same! We have enjoyed wonderful success with the few select litters we have been blessed with.

Our terriers have proven themselves in racing, GTG, super earth, the conformation ring, the hunt field, and are loyal and loving companions.

We are Wayne and Nita May. We retired (Wayne from construction and Nita is clergy) to our river home.

We have met many of you through our May Day Lure Coursing events. One of the many things we enjoy most about being retired is traveling to JRTCA trials and making new friends.

We are active members of the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America (JRTCA) and our kennel name, “May Day JRT” is registered with JRTCA. We are also active members of the Virginia Jack Russell Terrier Club (VJRTC) where Wayne currently serves as Board President.  Wayne was elected to serve on the National JRTCA Board of Directors in 2016.

We take the responsibility of breeding very seriously and our breeding program has been carefully selected for natural working ability, correct conformation, performance, and over-all temperament.
