Foundation Stock for this quarter
Our Rat Terrier Foundation Network is now in motion. This Network of breeders is dedicated to producing good dogs for the improvement and the preservation of the breed. Why? With the continuing watch on the health survey it is essential that our breeds problems decrease and not increase. We are asking all our breeders to participate in the project.
We have created a foundation stock registry database that will list those dogs that qualify. This will make the search for stock free of defects easier to locate. In addition the database will also identify and marks carriers of genetic defects. Any dog entering the system must have 3 generations of complete pedigree information. It is the goal to compile 200-300 dogs to be used for studbook records that must be free of and free of producing all major defects. The Registry will be kept open to allow new blood to enter which is essential to the future of the breed.
If you would like to join go here

online or by postal mail.
