As of January 1, 2017, the EJRTCA WILL
continue registering to EJRTCA dogs ONLY!
If your dog is NOT the offspring of two
EJRTCA registered dogs, then the dog must
be unanimously voted in by board members
OR is already registered with an approved
registry such as AKC, UKC, or imported to
the U.S. and has foreign registration papers.
The EJRTCA is NOT closing to dogs who are
already apart of this registry and will
continue registering dogs!
This means if your dog has a EJRTCA litter
registration paper or has two parents that
have been issued EJRTCA registrations then
you may register your dog without having to
go through the voting process or being from
an approved registry.
Sorry for the confusion and inconvenience!
You CAN send your dog's information at 6
months of age to have him or her registered
with the EJRTCA.
It has has been brought to our attention that
Kathleen Dixon of ImportedJacks.com (Patch
Wood's Farm) is using our EJRTCA name
without permission. Her dogs are not
registered with us!

The English Jack Russell Terrier is a type of a working terrier that goes into the
earth after quarry. They are described as a small, sturdy, balanced terrier that is
slightly longer than the length of their legs. They have been bred for hunting
anything from rats to badgers since the early 1800's. The English Jack Russell
Terrier has survived because of the dedication of the people who own them.
Breeders took up the challenge to create a short terrier, with the purpose to be
able to go in the ground and force the vermin out of their dens. At times they would
have to dig down to the terrier, because the vermin would not leave and the terrier
would not leave the sight of the quarry. During this time,the scene in England in
the 1800's was very civilized, dominated by an intelligent, wealthy and bored
upper class...very much inclined to any kind of sport. While still a very "rural"
society by modern standards, the science of selective breeding was well
advanced (more milk, more meat, and more kernels on the cob and grains on the
shaft). Meanwhile, across the country, foxes are eating chickens, eggs, and
rabbits by the score. And rats are rapidly depleting the stores of grain and corn
meant for wealth-producing livestock (not to mention the more personal damage
to the cook's stocks of cheese
lines pure. We are dedicated in the creation of a proper registry to guide both
breeders and owners in the perpetuation of the breed as a working terrier,
judged as much by working ability as by conformation.
First incorporated in 1996 as EJRTCA "America".
