I'm happy to talk TRD all day long. I see that you have been to TRDUSA.. I'm "Jingles" on that forum. There are also several TRD FB groups if you're interested in learning more. Everyone is usually pretty helpful, although we are a bit protective of the breed since the breed is exploited by many people. We are trying to keep them off of BSL lists and just recently saw one in a pet store! (OMG!).. so.. a group of us was able to successfully explain why a TRD should not be in a pet store, and why the particular breeder is 'no good'.. so yea.. we're a bit protective, LOL!

The breeders in this breed are going to make or break the future of the breed. for example.. the 1st picture you posted.. of the four puppies.. that is from a well known american living in Thailand operating a TRD puppy mill :-( There are always going to be the good and bad breeders for every breed, but TRD in the United States is still in their infancy and only a very select few are even doing any health testing prior to breeding. It's a very sad state of affairs really.

Now - OWNING a TRD is a life changing event. If you have ferrets and a TRD then you will most likely have less ferrets at some point

Training a TRD can go really well, if you're prepared to put in the time. I compete in obedience, rally and have dabbled in agility. Along with my female TRD I have a pittie, bulldog and a boxer. Each of my bullies fall over backwards to work and have fun and try their little butts off and my TRD does the same.. for about 5 or 10 minutes at a time until she grows bored and looks at me as if she's thinking, "Mom.. we just did this twice.. if you don't get it by now.. you're not going to". Ahhh I just love her, LOL!

I'm happy to answer any questions or help you find a good breeder when you're ready. Doing all of your homework and getting to know everyone in the breed is a great start!


Hi Jessica,

Can you give me some links to the good TRD breeders in USA please. Thank you

I would really like to visit some links of Breeders of TRD in the USA. If anyone can point me in that direction I would be grateful.

Thank you
