Formerly the "English Jack Russell Club"-- Established 1995
The NRTFC
Did you know:  January 1st 2009 UKC Changed our breed standard and name .



Above (please click on link) is the original letter from UKC using the registry we gave them in 2001 to enter dogs in a pure bred registry,for the "Russell Terrier", they did not keep to their word.





In 2008 the UKC did not consult the club or members they would be changing the name of our breed to "Jack Russell" and the clubs breed standard on January 1st 2009 they just took it upon them self's to do this without consulting the club first.

The height disqualification was removed and replaced by serious fault!! in 2010
Any breeder of the "Russell Terrier" knows this was a terrible mistake by UKC over 12" is a Parson

Two words spring to mind "DOLLAR BILL"

They NEVER gave us the opportunity to vote on what was best for the breed "Russell Terrier"

As of January 1st 2009
WE DO NOT SUPPORT THE UKC AND NO LONGER REGISTER "RUSSELL TERRIERS" WITH THEM AFTER  WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO OUR BELOVED BREED.



January 1st 2010- 2011


  Mission Statement of the UKC

Our mission is to be the world's best registry of purebred dogs, to offer our customers the most efficient and creative services possible, to use our data to help our customers breed the best dogs in the world and to create a wide spectrum of performance and conformation events in which those dogs can prove their instincts and heritage.

Unfortunately they do not maintain the UKC Parson Russell Terrier and the
UKC Jack Russell Terrier formerly the Russell Terrier as  purebred. This was verified through the UKC registration department. Their registration polices for the two breeds intermingle the two breeds according to photgraphs with no regard for the separation of the two breeds in type and blood despite the fact they claim to be a purebred registry. The two breeds are distinctly separate breeds with different standards in UKC, AKC, FCI, and the Australian National Kennel Council. Does photo shop come to mind. And what office clerk makes the determination as to which registry the terrier should be registered in. The JRTCA is an acceptable domestic registry for both of the breeds in UKC.  The JRTCA follows the guidelines of the JRTCGB in England. England does not recognize the Russell Terrier/FCI JRT/Russell Terrier as the geniue Jack Russell Terrier. In fact they don't recognize it at all with Australia designated as country of development for the Russell Terrier. The JRTCA and the JRTCGB maintain their stock under a completely different standard from which the AKC Parson Russell Terrier orginated not the Russell Terrier/FCI JRT. Russell Terriers were never allowed registration in JRTCA only if spayed or neutered because they clearly did not adhere to the JRTCA standard.
