Welcome to the EJRTCA Website
Home of English Jack Russell Terriers!

    Please Read the following carefully...
    As of January 1, 2017, the EJRTCA has closed its doors to all outside dogs. This only means that
    IF your dog does not have at least ONE of the following: an EJRTCA litter registration, two
    EJRTCA registered parents, or a foreign pedigree, the EJRTCA board will have to unanimously
    vote to accept your terrier to become a part of our registry. We are STILL registering, we have just
    placed restrictions to protect our registry so that we can improve our bloodlines!

    If your terrier does NOT have any of the three listed you will need to put together a packet with
    the following:

  • Make sure your terrier is 6 months or older before submitting for approval.
  • A registration from one of our approved registries.
  • Print off a vet certificate from our forms page, have a veterinarian of your choice fill out and
    complete the form.
  • Take CLEAR pictures of each side and front while standing up. We understand that all dogs aren't
    the best at cooperating, so we suggest getting someone else to hold the dog while taking the
  • A check made out to the EJRTCA for $100, this covers the processing fee for your terrier.

    Sorry for any confusion and inconvenience, we are doing our best to clarify and make this process
    a smooth transition!

    FEES HAVE CHANGED, As of March 1st of this year all non-members are required to pay $30 per
    terrier registration and $30 per litter registration, no matter the size of the litter. All current
    members are required to pay $20 per terrier registration and $20 per litter registration, no matter
    the size of the litter. All other fees have remained the same!
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
and bread).

The English Jack Russell Terrier Club Alliance, Inc.
    (EJRTCA), was established for the recognition of our little guys and to keep their 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".
